Vindaloo Empire follows the life of Sid (Aunanda Naaido), a mid-twenties boy who migrates to Auckland from Delhi, with his parents. He realizes that he is no longer as popular as he was in Delhi, and believes all he needs is a motor bike, like the one he had back home, to again catch the attention of girls. His parents (Ajay Vasisht and Leela Patel) want him to focus on his engineering studies, but Sid takes a part-time job at a struggling restaurant as a kitchen hand, without his parents knowledge, in order to buy the motorbike. His focus moves away from study towards the restaurant, new-found friends including the local girl Mary (Alison Titulaer). Then came along an opportunity to win the first ever 'Auckland Metro Cooking Competition', that changed his life forever. The struggle to keep all sides happy leads Sid to question who and what, is the most important in his new life.
