The Curry Pot is excellent. Every dish on the menu is delicious and made fresh to order.
Not many Indian restaurants in New Zealand offer South Indian food but The Curry Pot
makes some of the best South Indian food - full stop. Try the masala dosa for a start.
Uttapam and vada are also on offer and these are quintessentially South Indian. Ask the staff about the difference between North Indian and South Indian dishes.
The Curry Pot lunch specials are amazing value for money. You may wish to start with an appetizer
such as aloo paratah followed by a main of masala dosa and gulab jamun for desert.
The Curry Pot is a byo alcohol restaurant but also offers tap beer and a variety of juices and lassis.
The staff and chefs are professional, polite and very helpful. The Curry Pot always delivers
highest quality and it's a pleasure to dine at this wonderful restaurant.

Excellent! Delicious and Fresh.

The Curry Pot in Newtown is always excellent.
Clean and tidy with a friendly, knowledgeable staff.
The North Indian curries are exceptionally good, but
what makes The Curry Pot stand out as one of the best
restaurants in Wellington, is their South Indian menu.
Vada, Dosas and Uttapam are available every day and
the side chutneys:
(mint, tamarind, coconut, sambar, pickles, onion, tomato, raita)
are mouth watering delectable. Fresh salads, fruit juices and lassies are available.
And along with a complete wine and spirits menu, The Curry Pot
offers a byo option and now they have New Zealand craft beer on tap!
A children's menu and Indian desserts like gulab jamun and mango kulfi
round out the menu. The Curry Pot is open Monday through Sunday for dinner
from 17:00 until late and Monday through Saturday for lunch from 11:30 to 14:30.
The lunch specials are incredibly good value and if You have a special request,
the chefs will happily accommodate. The Curry Pot has to be good.
Simply put, there are two other Indian restaurants within one hundred metres
of this place, so The Curry Pot chefs and staff must be at the top of their game
and they are! Try the masala dosa with sambar, coconut and tamarind chutneys, with
a side of freshly sliced, chaat masala vegetables, and galub jamun for dessert.

Came here for dinner after working at the Medical School across the road with a reasonably large crowd (20). Service was quick and friendly.

I had a Chicken Tikka Masala which had excellent flavours - my only gripe was I didn't feel there was a lot of chicken. Naan bread was hot and delicious.

Well worth going.

I usually go to another joint down the road, but a friend suggested this place so we went and it exceeded my expectations.. The food was amazing and good service too.
I usually get the same old thing but we were all sharing so got to try the lamb vindaloo.. It is now my new favorite!!
Will come back again!
