We definitely appreciated that a sick waiter was sent home; no one wants to catch a cold on vacation, least of all from a restaurant waiter! We dined here six years ago, and it is still superb! The butter chicken (forget about the calories!) is divine and a real treat. Others in our group had the lamb vindaloo, lamb korma,... More

Rakesh and his crew consistently turn out the best service and the best food. And how good is his Bombay Sapphire Gin!!! You won't be disappointed by going here.

Meet and greet great. Staff asked our name (first visit) and remembered it for remainder of the visit. Menu extensive. Food perfectly presented. Flavours superb. Absolutely excellent. Serves craft beer as well as Indian staples. Faultless. Well recommended.

The food served at this restaurant is outstanding. They add honey into the Butter Chicken which gives it a slightly sweet taste - really loved it! Partner had the Chicken Madras which was also perfect, along with a tasty Malai Kofta. The waiting staff were first class, opening the REAL linen napkins for us. The only slightly negative thing to... More

As a displaced Englishman, I grew up eating curry. It's very hard to find curry in the style of the UK in NZ, as Kiwis tend not to have the same palate and the restaurants also persist in using chicken thigh, something you almost never get served in a UK Indian where breast meat is the norm. Great India is... More

Food was really good with a decent selection, and very friendly service. Is quite pricey though, so is nice if you have the money. Presentation of the meals is great

Visited with my Mum and my daughter. Very warm and professional welcome. Great selection of food. We were very well looked after by the waiters who were incredibly attentive. Food portions were generous and tasted delicious! Only improvement suggestion would be the decor; a fresh coat of paint on the walls would be worth while. And I'm not sure how... More
