Tasty sweet rich with perfectly cooked bright white chicken, like this curry because it's thick and grainy - not runny. 10/10 haven't tasted a better curry over the tasman yet

First time I've been here and wished I'd tried it years ago. Lovely food, attentive waiting staff. Only negative is that the tables are a bit small and get crowded with different dishes when you are sharing.

Have lived in Wgtn all my life and always walked past Great India on my way to work. This place is always packed and for a good reason. We tried it for the first time last Saturday and was so happy to find an Indian restaurant that did a Chicken Vindaloo that is actually spicy like the menu says. We... More

This white linen restaurant Enjoys a well-deserved reputation among my Wellington friends. We had an excellent meal. Ticks all the boxes: pleasant decor; not too crowded; good wine list; top flight service. Highly recommended.

I was looking for something that had a great selection of vegetarian foods for an anniversary dinner. Most restaurants in Wellington have one or two veggie options, but Great India had an entire page of wonderful dishes, which made it almost impossible to choose. We ordered too much to start. The pakoras were amazing, the aloo set was divine and... More

We received very attentive service from the person I am thinking is the owner. What we were being served was explained. We were a big group and had a mixed entree platter which was wonderful and really filling. So much so that I barely touched my main. I'm sure it will be fantastic tomorrow! The lamb rogan josh that I... More

We has a variety of dishes. The curries were very disappointing. The food had no taste and tasted like over heated in micowave. I was so disappointed and only ate the food to be polite. The bread and rice were nice but the rest was so awful. WILL NEVER RETURN NOR RECOMMEND.

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.
