Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food, poor service, and overpriced . The indian food was very good. We shared a range of starters and small dishes, then finished with the chicken tikka. The toffee, honey combe and ice cream was average. The service was very poor considering you are...paying top prices. Lots of tables appeared to have the same issue with delays in getting in, waiting for drinks, food, and then queuing to pay at the end.More

Our table was assigned a male waiter (middle aged, thick rimmed glasses) that made us feel extremely unwelcomed during our visit there. He was rude, curt, and was extremely unfriendly. We spent close to $400, the food was okay but had better indian food in...Auckland.More

Cassia is famous and has hype. It is pricey (be warned). On one date night, we decided it was time for us to give it a go (and hoping our wallets would say it was worth it. We ordered Cured Salmon, Pistachio, Verjus; Green Chilli,...Tandoori Chicken, Madras Sauce, Curry Leaf; Caramelised Beef Short Rib, Chettinad, Leek; Vegetable Bhaji and Rice. We weren't sure how big the portions were but the salmon that arrived first just set the tone on how delicious the food was going to be. Everything was amazing! On each dish that was served, the waiter would explain the food, ingredients and how it was prepared. This made the experience jump an inch higher. Service was efficient and quick, and we got checked on. We feel the prices are a smidge over-priced by $5 or so per dish. Understandable because they are on hotel premises. We would go there again.More

The ups: Food was well presented, clean environment and service was pretty standard. The desserts were very nice. The downs: the main dishes, although spicy, were tasteless and drinks were very short on their doses. I ordered a gin and tonic and was very disappointed...with the amount of gin on it. Almost none. And so was everyone else’s on my table. 🤨. Very expensive and not all it says it is. Unfortunately.More

Other than a nice vibe/atmosphere this restaurant's food is disappointing. Fine dining at it's worst The goat cheese and corn fritter was a small ball... Tandoori chicken was bland I would rate a local indian takeaway better than this joint. Spent $400 for 4 people....Complete waste of moneyMore

Wow! This was the most fabulous Indian food ever! My husband and I had the "Journey" that had a great selection of some of the best items on the menu. Each one's superb and unlike any other Indian food we have had. In fact, it's...probably the best meal we've had in 60+ years of traveling around the world. The place is elegant, the service staff is very attentive and helpful, and the chef is outstanding. Thankyou for a wonderful meal!More

We ate here a month ago and continue to argue over what is the best dish! We did the journey and it was worth every cent. Really good to be greeted by one of the superb staff from Gusto.

We enjoyed a lovely meal here and this is not your typical Indian meal which we enjoy. Food was top quality, although expensive the portions were reasonable. Also reasonably spicy. Recommend you try one of their cocktails too. We were disappointed that we didn’t have...room to try the deserts as they looked enticing. The whole meal was a great experience and highly recommend.More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We ordered starters, mains and dessert. As it was Father’s Day there was a special dessert served as well by the restaurant to all dads. The beef croquettes were delicious.

Food was fabulous - attn. gluten-free- very good. Courses with the “journey thru India” came one after the other - no wait! But we waited 1/2 hour for the dessert?! Anyway we did enjoy ourselves but it’s so open plan and you are very close...to other guests- not so romantic?! I felt like my gf status was forgotten with so many different attentive staff but it was ok bc my partner was happy to eat all the naan. No alternative for me though - and I thought there would be. It’s a slick operation - giving cc details on booking and a threat of keeping $50 pp should you want to cancel within 24 hours! But they do dish out the food and clear efficiently - but relaxing or comfortable - it wasn’t!More

Tonight we dined at Cassia for the second time, will keep this brief, it should be a great review but the abrupt end to our evening ruined all of the good and left us feeling unappreciated and unlikely to return. Like our first visit the...drinks were great, the food exceptional (expensive) and the service mostly good, this is where it went downhill, this is one of those restaurants that impose a two hour dining window when booking, i guess achieving that all comes down to the service i guess. We arrived on time for our 6.30 booking and were seated upstairs and allowed time to order drinks and survey menu, all was going fine, food was great & service was fine, after about 90 minutes we finished our mains and were offered dessert which we declined and continued drinking our bottle of wine, after a couple of minutes and well within our 2 hour window our waiter came up and advised there was a problem, he needed our table and we need to finish and leave, this totally undid all of the previous good service and make it highly unlikely we will return, such a shame!More

A lovely location, great service, and outstanding food. An impressive range of drinks available including inspired cocktails including low alcohol and no alcohol options. The food is delicious, looks beautiful, and the flavours are rich and complex and various. We chose the Journey through India-...which seemed to include about 8 dishes of various sizes - a “trust the chef” - was wonderful. A great variety of tastes, sauces, heat, lots of wows.More
