Excellent food and perfect service, good wines and breads. British style Indian food but there are some novel and new dishes. Lovely quiet table settings, despite the central location. Probably the best curries I have ever had, and I've been at it for 40 years.

After the Lunch Box film what else could we do? Great service, taste and presentation. Nothing overwhelmed by ghee. Well priced - warning, one nan is enough probably for two people. But all more salty than I need or want. Perhaps that is just what Indian restaurant customers want.

Prompted by a late morning viewing of the movie "The Lunchbox" my wife and I were in the mood for a curry lunch. Based on previous visits, and their consistency over 30 years, "Great India" was the obvious choice. We weren't aware of the $12 lunch having previously only dined in the evening - it's extremely good value! A main,... More

The manager greeted me at the door with... More

Without a doubt this place serves some of the tastiest and best size curries in NZ. Whilst the prices may be slightly up (couple of dollars) on other high street venues......You get what you pay for-great taste, perfect lean meat cooked to perfection, fresh breads and quality Pakoras and Samosas ....a mouth explosion of taste and texture!! Service is fantastic... More

My daughter and I had lunch at Great India last week. One Main, Rice and Naan selection for $12.00 Exceptional value. Service top notch. Decor lovely but I did feel a bit sorry for the large fish in the small tank. Highly recommended.

Have visited here on several occasions and would rate this the best Indian experience in town. The food is reasonably priced for the excellent quality that is served. The thing that lifts this above other curry places is the service which is always outstanding.
