Great India was wow all around. The staff are attentive and friendly and the place is clean and uncluttered. We actually had quite a good rapport with a waiter there named Himan. I have spent some time in India and being from Birmingham I love a good balti LOL. As vegetarians, Indian food always has a wide selection and Great... More

I rarely email the restaurant after my meal to thank them for such fantastic food and service, but Rakesh and team were so very welcoming. My father worked as an indian chef for some time, so I was raised around authentic indian food. This was equally delicious. A real find when there are so many bad curries out there. Best... More

The service was great, very warm and attentive. We've ordered the Channa Masala which was poor. One of the worst I had. The Malay Kofta was good and so was the Garlic Nan.

Great Indian food with very attentive service from the Maitre d. With an extensive menu, it is recommended for all curry lovers.

Had a lovely meal at Great India on New Year's Eve. I was in a wheelchair at that time and they were helpful and accommodated us discreetly along a wall (as one leg had to remain up so a potential hazzard!). It was years since I had last been there and it was still lovely. Being vegetarian, the limitations in... More

I guess my review comes from the perspective of the vegetarian. I know my stuff on Indian, Italian, Middle Eastern VEGETARIAN dishes, but NOT meat. Bear this in mind. I found Great India middle of the road. Service was good, dishes balti (too mild for me, made for non Indians). This was partly my fault. Not many Indian restaurants stick... More

After walking around wellington trying to find somewhere to eat ( it was Boxing Day and a lot of places were shut) we came across this Indian. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We were brought some poppadums and some fairly spiced chutneys. The main course was very nice and a good size. We would definitely recommend this restaurant

I visited Wellington over the weekend and tried out this restaurant... Their lunch special was really good and they even give you a hot towel after you eat! Highly recommended!

The décor is perfect, not too bright, but more than enough to provide a lovely ambience. Service is excellent, shown to a seat right away, and provided with a set of menus. We had poppadum's to start with and then a mains meal. Food presented and cooked perfectly. This is English Indian style cooking but can be adapted to suit... More

We enjoyed a superb meal at this restaurant as a party of four with two children ages 7 and 10. The proprietors are Anglo-Indian and originate from Leicester; this means they have some magic off-menu items that they will prepare if you simply request. This also means that they know how to cook mightily fine Indian food. This restaurant has... More
