Amazing food... The lamb shank curry is awesome, and I loved the flat bread. Great service too, often if you're travelling on your own you can be a bit ignored, but the waiters were really attentive.

Excellent food as well as service! My friend and I went for an evening out and ended up at Ella for dinner. Both the masala dosa and the chicken dish were excellent, the service was friendly and fast. Will definitely go back.

My husband and I had a late lunch at Ela. Wow!!! We can't say enough good things about the food!! It was the best Indian food we've ever had. We had the samosas, paneer masala, poretta and pavlova. It was all so delicious! My husband has a nut allergy and the staff were great at accommodating him. The staff were... More

My son says it is the best butter chicken he has ever had and believe me he has had a few. Delicious authentic south Indian food and a real change from the the usual Indian menus. So good to discover. We will be back!

This indian restaurant, perfectly located in Auckland city centre, is just amazing. The food is ultra tasty,with fresh ingredients, and they really make an effort on the presentation. The service was excellent as well. And the prices are reasonable for this quality and location. Highly recommend this place.

We are now a regular at the lovely Ela! Located in a lively basement food court on Elliot street, this is where we head to if when we crave for that authentic traditional, healthy and homely Indian food! Our top picks are lamb shank, 'butterless" chicken, tandoori, dosa, chicken mappas. As for drinks, our kids love the refreshing lemon mint... More

Elliott Stables is like a food court but much higher class. Ela Cuisine has such delicious Indian food for very reasonable prices. I took the Tandoori Kale Salad with Lemon Rice which was sooo good that I had to go again the day after :)

My husband and I were a little skeptical about this restaurant when we arrived as it is kind of looked like a small food stall at the back of a nicer, upscale food court. The few times we have eaten foods that were gluten free usually didn't taste very good. However, this meal was so delicious! The staff were friendly,... More
