Was down in Wellington for international rugby match for a weekend. Saw this place. Looked classy and elegant. Great decision to go to Great India. Service is first class. Tried the Goan Pork. Wow. Sensational stuff. Been to India as well and this is up to that standard. Great stuff.

We avoided the papadums & starters & went straight for the main courses. Indian food can be very filling & lets be honest - it's all about the curry. So, my Madras was pretty good, with coconut, which is not the European Madras - but it was still good. The Tarka Dahl was a bit to salty for me, but... More

We didn't have a booking but were welcomed in. Entree of onion bhaji was different to expectation but nevertheless it was good. Main of murgh biryani was good but way too large a portion. Naan was excellent as were the raita and onion Salad. Service was top notch. Worth another visit.

We called in at Great India for a pre-concert dinner. Although we had allowed plenty of time to eat, they served us very quickly. The food was very tasty, served on hot plates and there was plenty of it. The service was excellent with care taken over details. It was a little difficult to understand the waiter at times because... More

If you are looking for a great curry in Wellington this is the place to go to. Unpretentious , large menu to please all and excellent attentive service - lamb samosa to start,murgh breyanni & Mango lassi were superb with a Tiger beer. Good value & great food which won't disappoint.

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
