On the back of previous reviews. We thought it would be a great option on a cold evening. Wrong! Greasy poppadoms, unusual un indian pickles! Lamb Rogan Josh main and Pork Vindaloo mains. The only difference between our dishes was the spice! I know every restaurant has their own versions but please!

Had a great lunch today-naan was so good we ordered more. Service good, staff interested and helpful, best value in NZ so far. $12NZ for nice size chicken masala, rice and naan. But for a few wild and unmanaged children at the next table, very nice lunch!

We ordered poppadom for starters and they added pickles at $6 ( to hot to enjoy) which if I knew, we would not had ordered. Curries were OK but overpriced for what we had

However their curry is the second best in Wellington and if I couldn't go to the first one I might choose to visit them. It is good to come here at lunch time when there is a deal because dinner gets a bit too expensive and the curry that you get is exactly same so don't bother to compare. I... More

Had a great family meal with lots of good Indian food and attentive service from the wait staff. Started with pompadoms and relishes then had onion bhajis followed by a main. Was plenty of food (to much for us to finish) and it was very tasty. The evening finished with a complementary hot towel. This is a high end Indian... More

Went on a Friday night with some friends and had a great time and heaps of delicious food. Two of the party were vegetarians and they had many choices. All the dishes were great and carefully spiced. Friendly and efficient service from all the waiters and especially front of house. Would be 5 stars if they spruced the place a... More

The owner of this restaurant is originally from the UK and if you love a British style curry experience this is a great place. Proper Onion Bhajis, a great selection of curries and good beer. The service when we visited was exemplary - friendly and professional.

Was down in Wellington for international rugby match for a weekend. Saw this place. Looked classy and elegant. Great decision to go to Great India. Service is first class. Tried the Goan Pork. Wow. Sensational stuff. Been to India as well and this is up to that standard. Great stuff.

We avoided the papadums & starters & went straight for the main courses. Indian food can be very filling & lets be honest - it's all about the curry. So, my Madras was pretty good, with coconut, which is not the European Madras - but it was still good. The Tarka Dahl was a bit to salty for me, but... More
