Can compromise on service, ambience etc so long the food is exceptional. This place has some amazing Indian food and variety compared to other famous I indian restaurants in Auckland. Service and ambience is good, though can be improved upon. Recommended!

We ordered the Mix platter with chicken and other assorted pakoras. There were mushroom pakoras missing. when inquired with the waiter they mentioned its not included . I showed him the menu as it mentioned it was included. Later they got them fo us. The chicken tikka was nice and tender. The ambience is dull and gloomy so make sure... More

We went on a Tuesday evening when prices are extremely modest. Staff were charming, the meals were produced very promptly and the mild butter chicken was perfect. My very hot, as expected, meal was delicious. I am sorry we did not find this restaurant until out last night.

We went to the one Off Queens str . Auckland.. We first decided to eat there as it was close to our hotel. On arrival we were served with complimentary papperdam and bottle of water after ordering we didn't wait long before the meal was served. We only ordered the mains but they were big portions that we were full... More

Only a few steps away from our hotel, very close to Queen Street (this is in Auckland Central, not in Waitakere City!!!), a hidden gem? We were the only customers dining in on a Monday night. Many people popped in and out though. They also do take-away :). My partner ordered Chicken Bartha, I asked for the Lamb Kadhai Gosht.... More

I have been to Calcutta Wala several times, alone, with a friend, and with a large family. The food is always superb and the service attentive. Their prices are reasonable too. The main problem is parking as the parking garage opposite the restaurant closes at 7.30pm! But it is well worth the effort to get to the restaurant. It is... More

I have visited this restaurant six times and have enjoyed their food and friendly service immensely. Their biryani is the closest thing to the real thing that can be found in a New Zealand restaurant. They are open throughout the afternoon, which is useful if you need a meal at an odd time. The biggest hassle for dinner is parking... More

Why is such a great restaurant not reviewed yet? It's easy accessible, just around the corner of Rydges, and has excellent food (they use very fresh vegetables for cooking, you ll taste the difference!), a beautiful atmosphere, and normal prices, around 13 for a vegetarian main for diner, and cheaper lunch options. Service is very friendly and fast. We were... More
