Opened April 2017. A very large vegetarian Indian restaurant in the city center. Menu is a mix of vegetarian and vegan food. Staff will easily identify vegan options, as they are not clearly labeled. Open Mon-Sun 11:00am-2:00pm, 5:00pm-10:00pm.

Amazing Indian food - Edit

My fiancé and I had dinner at Steam last night. He’s a gluten free vegan and I’m a vegetarian. The food was amazing and the staff incredibly helpful. The service was fast and the place immaculate. I would definitely go there again and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Pros: Excellent food, Value for money , Friendly staff and nice vibe

Descent Indian Takeout - Edit

Had take away order. Arrived in about 1hr 20 min but had EFTPOS reader with food. Overall food tasted a little flat. Not the best Indian food but very convenient and great menu for Rotorua. I could take a bath in the green chutney. Ordered "hot" makhani. So mild, I gave some to the 2 year-old

Updated from previous review on 2017-10-21

Pros: Huge vegetarian menu, EFTPOS at delivery

Cons: Food "okay", Subjective spiciness levels

Good experience - Edit

Went here for dinner tonight and had a positive experience. The staff were very nice and helped us navigate which menu items to avoid due to containing dairy. The food was all delicious. We got the aloo gobi, a dosa, a samosa chaat, and some rice/bread. All tasty. Overall, good price for the amount of food we got. My only issue is that a lot of the menu items contain dairy, so there were a few things I wanted to order that I ended up having to take in a different direction. Also, it would be nice if the menu clearly indicated which items were vegan/dairy-free, since a good chunk of our time was spent discussing this with the staff.

Indian restaurant - Edit

This is a typical Indian restaurant (as opposed to Indian fast-food places), very large and with lots of choices. Everything is at least vegetarian and staff can tell you what is vegan. Tried the samosas, which were very hard and therefore difficult to eat and some dal, which was very good. Good value.

Delicious - Edit

Lots to choose from and the food I ordered was really good. They could work a bit on the interior though, make it look more cosy and oriental.

Great place to try in Rotorua - Edit

Not the most stellar Indian food we've ever had, but very acceptable. Comfortable place to eat and friendly service.

We tried a mix of both North and South Indian dishes including egglant curry, okra (ladyfinger) curry, and dosa. and they were all acceptable. Good portions for the price.

Do ask about vegan options as they are not labeled as such but they are very happy to tell you what's what.

Good Indian Food - Edit

Good Indian restaurant, not too expensive and tasty. Vegan option available (if you ask to the waiters). The service is fast and the place is easy to find. I paid 24 dollars for a starter and the main dish. The best thing was the menu card because it's written why to be vegetarian for the earth, the Health and, of course, the animals.

Pros: Easy to find vegan option on the menu , Good service , tasty

Cons: Not incredibly original

Great find in vegan dead zone - Edit

We were thrilled when a local told us about this brand new vegetarian place because vegan pickings are very slim in Rotorua. We ate here three times during our three-day stay. The menu has a lot of dairy items so you need to ask the waiter for help if you're vegan. Friendly service, well priced.

Pros: A lot of options
