Always a great experience

I've eaten at noisy of the Indian restaurant in Wellington over the last few years and the Great India is easily the best. Fantastic food supported by great service. The owner Rakesh is always a pleasure to catchup with and never forgets a face.

Dining on my own during a work trip. The staff made me most welcome and looked after me. They were polite and friendly without being intrusive. As always the food was great!

We popped in without a booking and were greeted warmly. We received very good service and were really happy with our meals, right up there with the best Indian cuisine we have enjoyed. Happy to recommend this restaurant.

A 'Great Shame'. Not what it use to be. The service was very good, polite etc but they like to seat ethnic groups into a corner. Four dished ordered. Two of these dishes had no flavor at all and salty. For the price the portions were very small and there was no accompaniment eg rice or naan. You had to... More

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and thanks to all the reviewers who put on their reviews about this restaurant we enjoyed a wonderful dinner tonight. With the assistance of our waiter who made some great meal suggestions to us we enjoyed a great dinner at a very reasonable price
