We went to the Indian lunch special at this restaurant. The food was delicious and well cooked and the special for lunch was $12 which includes your drink. But the decor is dated and looks dirty. Everything could do with a good scrub. The chair coverings had food on them from previous diners and the restaurant is quite dark and... More

I went to Satya with a group as an end of year University dinner. The staff were a little strange but nothing too offensive. They were fine with us splitting the bill based on items which was very helpful. I ordered the Vege Korma, having had one at Uni Curry which was amazing every time. However this was a bland... More

Came here for the first time with a friend for dinner. It is a long narrow restaurant with, shall we say, quaint decor. The menu had a lot of items that I was unfamiliar with, so lots of new dishes to try. For starters we ordered a mixed platter of entrees, which was almost a meal in itself.The manager came... More

We stumbled across this restaurant when exploring Auckland, and given that other Indian restaurants we visited in New Zealand were definitely cheaper than most other food we decided to eat here. It lived up to expectation; the menu certainly was affordable. The place was popular, with most of the tables being occupied; unfortunately this occupation was mostly in the form... More

The complementary bread wasn't very nice. The meals we had were quiet bland and not as spicy as what you get in other Indian restaurants.

Always reliable and yummy. The Mt Eden Rd and Sandringham branches are very nice also. Great vegetarian options.

Simply the best indian food I've ever had! And very different too. A good selection of vegetarian options and a large range of dishes to choose from.

Came here with a big group of friends for lunch. The staff took our orders and served us surprisingly promptly even though it was s busy afternoon. Similar taste to most places but one of the few places that does $10 lunches. Many people give very positive reviews so make a visit and be the judge. The 'naan/parathas' are simply... More

We have visited Satya several times, over the past few years, and coming from the UK, and struggling to find a decent Indian, we have never been disappointed. Being pescatarian there is still a lot on the menu that we can choose from. The food is not your usual Indian (butter chicken rubbish) but delicate flavours and different South Indian... More

My son recommended this restaurant to try. It certainly isn't fine dining but the atmosphere is pleasant and the food great value for money. Wine was very well priced. I would highly recommend Satya for casual dining or family dining
