We were walking around wellington trying to find somewhere to eat after disembarking from the dawn princess for the day. Found the above restaurant. For $12.00 each we had a delicious meal and because there were five of us we all ordered a different curry , rice, naans salad and pappadums. Do try the Lamb Vindaloo , really delicious .... More

We were wondering around searching for lunch and we saw this place selling a lunch (rice, choice of curry, naan and poppadum) for $12. When we arrived, the place was quite empty. The staff were very friendly and their service is excellent. I had chicken tikka masala with spiced rice and they were delicious! After the meal they provide you... More

Visited Great India again early April. As always the menu had plenty for everyone to choose from, including a first time Indian restaurant visitor. From as hot as possible vegetarian to mild chicken we all enjoyed a great night. Happy with the cost, a touch over $50 a head.

Food was okay, service was good. They brought out the wrong meal, but when informed they got the right meal quickly. They tried to hard sell pompadoms (asked 3 times), which was annoying.

One of several Indian restaurants we tried during our trip through New Zealand. Dinner was very good, although not spectacular - can't say it was one of the best I've ever had. But you certainly won't go wrong picking Great India. Service was fine although a bit slow when it came time to get the bill.

We have eaten at Great India regularly for several years. Recently return to Wellington following a couple of years away and were recognised, which was pleasing. The special lunch deal curries, complete with rice and naan bread, were as good as we remembered, and the service attentive without being intrusive. They offer hot towels at the end of the meal...

This restaurant serves the best Indian food I have eaten outside of India and the UK In fact it is better than most places in the UK and quite a few in India too!. Amazing taste, large menu, wonderful staff. So good, I would move to Wellington to have this as my local Indian restaurant.

Went here with my husband and his 81yr old mother who was visiting from the USA. She was somewhat apprehensive about eating here as was worried the food would be to hot but she left this restaurant a convert to Indian food. From the time we walked in the service was brilliant, with our wet coats being hung up and... More

Really good Indian cuisine. Good quality food and friendly helpful staff. Highly recommended if you are a curry fan! The restaurant is situated not far from the lively Cuba Street and Courtenay Place.
