If you are in Wellington, I highly recommend you drop into Curry Heaven. Make sure you try some of their Bangladeshi dishes. I have travelled to Bangladesh and Curry Heavens food is just like being there. I would go there again in a heart beat.

Popular at lunchtime and some evenings, has a good menu of Indian dishes and service is good, albeit slow on busy times

We found this small,none fussy restaurant and takeaway in the suburbs of Newtown Wellington. The food was brilliant and is tailored to your taste. Service was excellent and you can take your own wine. The price is half of what you would pay in downtown....More

Found this little place tucked down a side street when looking for dinner. Excellent quality curry, large portions and a full size naan bread, great stuff.

Not as one would expect for a curry house. Cheap but many things off the menu. No ambience. The staff were helpful

My girlfriend and I often come here for the great $10 lunch special. You get a curry, rice, and naan. They have a lot of great vegetarian and vegan options, and the curries are always very flavorful.
