Yellow Chilli is tucked away down some stairs in Kelburn, Wellington. The decor is a little dated, but the food is superb! The starters are incredible and the curry's spot on. The prices are reasonable too. I highly recomend this for dinner on a weeknight.

We just had a couple of nights in Wellington on our tour of NewZealand and this turned out to be the best value and one of the tastiest meals we had. Good authentic Indian menu and lassi to drink - great stuff.

Yellow Chilli and Menulog had a mix up on my order. I don't know who to believe as they blamed each other. Neither made any attempt to rectify the mix-up until I rang them twice. I waited 2 hours to get a lukewarm dinner. The food wasn't what I'd ordered. Yellow Chilli were more concerned with making excuses than sorting... More

We are very priviliged to have such an excellent Indian restaurant as our local. Great value for money as prices are medium but quality is top. If you're dining in, some people may find the Indian/Victorian decor a bit heavy for modernist tastes but that's part of the fun.

Walking back to the Botanic Gardens from Zealandia we walked in for a cheap bite for dinner. The curries are well priced ($15-17 each) but the standout is the breadbasket - 4 various breads for $11. We had alloo ghobi and paneer lavabdar with breads: Pratha, Garlic naan, Potato naan and Roti. Doing NZ on a travelers budget we were... More

This is very convenient for us - local to us in Kelburn - but even if it wasn't it would be our favourite Indian restaurant and takeaway in Wellington. consistently good quality food (South Indian influence evident) and great service from the owners and waiters. The restaurant itself provides a quiet and pleasant dining environment and the takeaway portions are... More

Our regular, go-to Indian restaurant. Always good service (especially enjoy the hot towels brought to your table) and top quality, tasty food, whether it's dine in or takeaway. Can't recommend highly enough.

The food is always very good quality and the cooking is more authentically Indian and South Indian than is often the case in NZ Indian restaurants. The service has always been really efficient and charming ( especially from the owning family) so I can't understand the earliest reviewer's criticism of the service - clearly a "blip" I would hope.

Quiet, quaint ambience, and excellent food and service. Great value for money. Very generous helping. Mango lassi could be improved with real fruit rather than mango syrup, however.
