Delicious Indian food! Especially the popular butter chicken, because it has great flavor and seasoning. I mean, the dish is well prepared which gives you the feeling of home made food.

Everyone has told us to go to Kerala, and as this food is made the Kerala way, we now know why. Best Indian we have eaten :)

I recently had a delicious chicken dish at Ela. It is situated in a type of food court, called Elliot Stables. Not only was it delicious but it was dairy free, and the service was excellent!

Hidden amidst Elliot Stables, a small place but worth the hunt. Great service despite being busy. Started with delicious fried chicken, had the Kerala, lamb shank curry, and the dosa. All were amazing. We will come back for sure.

We ate here on a Bookme deal and would definitely do it again. The food was excellent and great value for money. And the location alongside other eateries was very pleasant and with a lively atmosphere. Our only complaint was that we couldn't be served with an alcoholic drink before our food arrived - due to the licensing laws on... More

We ended up searching this place on Google after a look for Indian restaurants in the Auckland CBD. It was a refreshing experience - great ambience of people enjoying food all around with the aromas of South India on the platter. Definitely a place to visit if you are in the Auckland CBD looking for some good Indian food!

Haphazardly, I decided to make a booking at 7:15 PM when it was 7:00 PM. For some reason, it worked and the person on the phone was causal about it. I had been to this place about a month ago and I was thoroughly surprised by how everything about this restaurant was amazing. So when I was seated, I must... More

Chicken mappas was divine and lovely staff. The restaurant is at the end of food court and doesn't look so fancy but the food is really good. The only think I don't recommend is the cheese bread!
