Man I like a good curry, but I find it very hard to find one. Maybe it's my British taste having not grown up with the New Zealand style of curry, but whatever it is I do struggle. During a conversation at work about this subject, a couple of people mentioned Great India as a very good place. Today I... More

A group of six of us were dithering outside the door and a departing guest told us to go in as the food was amazing. He was so correct; wonderful table service, napkins laid out on our laps, help over the menu and attentive waiters. We worked our way through the menu, breads and dips and pickles to start, a...

I had the Murgh Biryani, and next time I won't order anything else to go with it as the serving is large. Biryanis are my favorite Indian meal, and I have no idea how many I've eaten in the last 35 years, but this was the finest. A wonderful mix of spice and sweet, it really was a meal to... More

Believe the accolades. A Wellington institution. Attentive staff, the food was simple and well prepared, quick service. Good naan. And hot towels at the end of the meal.

This was my second time eating here and this time did not fail to live up to previous experience. The flavours and texture of my vegetation dish was perfect. The naan was superb too. This was a Monday eve and despite it been reasonably quiet and plenty of staff around the service was a little slow. Having said that it... More

When I told my friend I was going to Great India, he said "It's a Wellington Institution". Having been in Wellington since 1983 its longevity speaks to its quality. Wait staff are helpful, and the menu offers a range of options. We had the deluxe mix entree selection which included meats cooked from the tandoor and samosas, all had plenty... More

I'd walked past this place lots of times and thought it looked pretty dingy then got a voucher so ventured in. The interior is a little dated but the food more than makes up for it! The menu is varied and most dishes you're asked for a level of spice which is great. I would particularly recommend the fish curry... More
