Having studied Indian cuisine in India and Australia for over 30 years, Coriander's at Hanmer Springs is definitely second to none that we've experienced. Out of the many Indian restaurants and authentic cooking we've experienced while travelling India and Australian cities, the quality and balance of what we enjoyed tonight at Coriander's blew us away. Two restaurants in Brisbane may... More

We had Baigan Bharta, Lamb Posht, Special Sizzling Platter, Kashmiri Pulao and the side dish platter. The food was fresh, tasty and... More

This place is awesome! You can't visit Hanmer Springs NZ and not have dinner at Coriander's. Great value for money and if you like Indian you'll LOVE this place!

Coriander's is good Indian food. Not the best, pretty good. But ok. The flavours are just not quite as special as a top-rated Indian restaurant. But if you love steady Indian food, this gets a tick. They could improve in many ways --- genuine ambience, better / friendlier service, more tangy food.

We've eaten at a lot of Indian restaurants in our time but if this wasn't one of the best Indian meals we've had then it will do until one comes along.

Then we ended up here. Now we are struggling to stand up and walk home. Delicous. Fresh dishes served to perfection and the perfect spice level as ordered. The breads were great and the service spot on. This would be a must visit in Hanimer Springs!

I arrived later in Hamner springs with my girlfriend to experience some time away . We we greeted very risky and told to wait and that they wouldn't be sure a table would be available . While we were waiting for a table to become available another couple arrived without a previous booking and were shown straight to a table... More

I am not one to complain, toilets, have they ever been cleaned? service, taking takeaway orders before tables? takeaway people standing and waiting around tables, very poor, in fact disappointed, huge wait for the drinks order, let alone the food.
