I read about this restaurant being "the best Indian food in New Zealand". Sadly I was not that impressed. We waited over 40 minutes for our food to arrive, and the chicken in my curry was quite dry. My butter chicken cost $19 and then extra for the rice. The service was also very average.

Friendly, helpful staff. Good with kids. Marvellous mango lassi and naan. Portions a bit on small side but reasonably priced.

We chose this restaurant for a quiet birthday dinner as we enjoy Indian food and it was very close to our accommodation. And we were not disappointed. The service was great and the food was excellent. Never before have we been presented with a hot towel after a meal. Would definitely recommend to others and will revisit if we ever... More

What an absolute find! A group of 10 of us descended on this place at 9.15pm on a Wednesday evening. Greeted by outstanding wait staff who looked after our every need. The food was simply superb. Fantastic sauces, great quality meat, naan breads and popadoms to die for and an entree platter, just outstanding. Can't recommend this place highly enough... More

Great India answered all my curry cravings. The poppadoms were crispy, with just the right amount of mango chutney and lime pickle to make them sing. I had the lamb badham passanda...and it was one of the best I've ever had. Large chunks of melt in the mouth lamb, with a meaty gravy. My OH had the lamb dansak, which... More

Absolutely amazing service by all staff. We were so impressed how lovely and friendly and helpful everyone was. And the food was delicious - bonus for people who are fussy with meat quality is that their chicken curries use breast. This restaurant has won a lot of awards and we can see why. Would recommend for Indian food lovers and... More

I've been here a couple of times now, and both times come away with the thought that was the best Indian food I have had in NZ. The menu goes deep into dishes i haven't seen here before, and the service is brilliant. Staff are attentive and I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I've sent other staff from my... More

We came in at 8.30 pm and got served at 9.30 pm. We had ordered just three things and it took an hour to get it done. The food was alright. The lamb saag tasted like they used the spices to cover up something that got burned along the way. Another annoying thing you got to order your rice separately.... More
