Great Indian food in New Zealnd

This is some of the best Indian food we have had anywhere. We had dishes from the new items on the menu and they were both great. Service was excellent and the bill when we got it was a surprise - on the low side. Hard to believe in this day and age.

After seeing all the great reviews I was really looking forward to eating here, however I have had much better Indians elsewhere in the world. I ordered two dishes which were meant to be mild but one was way too spicy and I gave it to my boyfriend. Overall I was underwhelmed and probably won't return.

Amazing food and excellent service - Great India spells great Indian cuisine. Standards very high and family run business is credit to team there. Very well recommended.

I went there with my husband to have dinner. The waiting staff were stupendous: they took off our coats, pulled out the chair for us to seat, gave us hot towels to clean our hands in the end of the meal , and that's why I gave this restaurant a 5* rating. The food was good but I've ate better... More

We were running a little late but stopped in for a pre-theatre dinner. The food was a bit more expensive than many other Indian restaurants but the quality was higher as well. Value for money. Special thanks to the staff for paying very close attention to our time constraints - and getting us out the door on time. Well done... More

Went there for a friends birthday party where we all had to pay for ourselves. The food was incredibly pricey, a stand out was having to pay $3.50 separately for a small bowl of basmati rice. I ordered the sagg chicken mild. When it arrived it was incredibly spicy, two other people around the table tried it as well and... More

I came here in January and booked a table for my Mum's birthday. There where about 8 of us and we all enjoyed our experience. The only thing I didn't like was that we were sat right in the corner near the bar area when there were many other available tables that we could have sat at. The service was... More

We enjoyed visiting this restaurant as we popped in at lunchtime and enjoyed their $12 special which included a main course, naan and rice. We loved the variety of dishes available. Their butter chicken was delicious and we had some particularly interesting naans and rice. $36 fed our family of four nicely.
