We were there years ago and were pleased it is still in the hands of the same family. A bit tricky to find, but once you are there, the food is great. We had a nice chat with the co-owner who was happy to explain...More

We had been to Natraj a few years ago and really enjoyed the restaurant so thought we’d go back for dinner with friends after a reasonable absence. Sadly it was a bit disappointing. The service was very average. Our waitress didn’t look like she was...More

This unpretentious Indian restaurant offers excellent value for money. We shared the mixed entré followed by the fish curry. Very friendly service and a great atmosphere for a reunion of old friends

The best curry I have had in Wellington We have been there 10+ times in the last 12 months and we have had great service and great food. Worth the drive or train ride every time.

I had a dish I'd never heard of before, recommended by the helpful waiter. It was delicious. So many great flavours in one dish. Highly recommend a visit here.

We go to Natraj regularly. The food is always delicious. Our favourite side is the Peshwari (sp?) naan bread. It is the best I've ever had. They are also experimenters that try out new things on occasion. Very friendly service.

The food at Natraj was hot and tasty but I wouldn't suggest driving past other Indian restaurants in order to eat here. They have a very small, basic dining area (3-4 small tables) but they are licensed to sell wine and beer to dine-in customers....More

Have had takeaways from Natraj many times. The food is always great and he service is timely. The curries are always full of flavour and never watery like you might find at some lesser Indian Takeaways.
