With tourists being willing to travel out of their comfort zones, it is possible to visit Rotorua in New Zealand. The wonders are many and varied and each place feels like it is out of this world. Sadly, the food scenario is a little limited with most people opting to pace up and down the Eat Street that is well known for a host of restaurants in Rotorua and cafés providing a refreshing meal at a short notice. It is not too expensive either.

While food brings people together, a number of Indian tourists are put out by the enormous variety that meat lovers can enjoy in this beautiful place. No worries though! It makes sense to visit the Indian restaurants specializing in vegetarian fare from across the vast and diverse country that has umpteen options to offer. It is not only the Indians who love to sample the fresh veggie rustled up enticingly with a number of spices and ingredients that are hard to come by outside India. The vegans and hard core vegetarian food lovers from elsewhere are eager to have a bite of the wonderful cuisine that incorporates more than a thousand years of experience and is served with the traditional Indian greeting of Namaste.

The STEAM happens to be amongst the top picks of pure vegetarian Indian restaurants in Rotorua with its sumptuous mouthwatering fare that stand out in an exemplary manner.
