Best Indian in Wellington I'd say. Have looked long and hard for a place that uses chicken breast instead of thigh. Coming from UK it's what we're used too. I know kiwis prefer thigh but I don't. Very tasty and great service. On busy nights...it takes a good hour for the food to come out but when it does, it sure is worth the wait!More

Myself and colleagues have been coming here once a month for about five years for lunch. The food is always excellent, as is the service and value for money. I don't know how they can provide such excellent food for only $12-13. For this you...will get any curry off the menu, an assortment of rice and naans - the same price as a so-called 'meal' at Maccas - you know what to do! The manager and staff are friendly, professional and you always feel welcome. I genuinely can't fault the place.More

As always, the mains were fantastic - tasty and the right level of spice and the service was very good We had the platter for 2 for an entree and having experienced the same thing at other Indian restaurants when the platter comes out sizzling...on a hot plate, I was surprised that it came out on a normal plate. The food on the dish was okay taste wise but it was luke warm at best which makes me wonder if it had been prepared well ahead of time and was not just cooling down after the cooking process. It was far too cold for that. Did it put me off this restaurant? Possibly yes. If I go there again, I will not order this.More

The experience was wonderful the staff were friendly. Ordered the butter chicken it was creamy and the chicken was moist. The garlic naan was very good, and the place had generous portions. Definitely recommend.

Service is great.. but the food was below average. Very disappointing. Never coming back. Menu wasn’t attractive... still tried... never recommending to anyone.

Fantastic food every time we go, so it has become a staple date night go-to. Really enjoy the palak paneer, chicken korma and the vindaloo. Very well spiced and balanced curry.

We went sunday dinner in Great india our second day for food tasting. Indian food is a very good choice after a lot of tasteless food in Wellington, and here it is really good, nothing was overcooked, the open wines they offered by glass are...even good. Fast and friendly service.I really love this place !!!!!More
