My partner and I often eat here and find the food great very authentic, reasonably priced but have found the dining experience leaves something to be desired.
We generally order Onion Bahji, which is the nicest in Wellington (IMHO), either Afgahani Chicken or Chicken Tikka, both of which are beautiful and moist, followed by a curry each and a naan bread. This generally leaves us with enough to take home for the next day.
The restaurant is small and the decor could do with updating.
The wine selection is small and some what confusing. After being told they did not have a wine list but I could look in the fridge and pick what I like, I picked a bottle of Oyster Bay sauvignon blanc. The waitress then asked if I really wanted this and perhaps I would prefer a Selaks Pinot Gris. Begrudgingly I agreed, and the waitress disappeared out the back of the restaurant before returning 15 mins later with the wine. While I can't prove it I have a sneaking suspicion she headed to the Countdown across the street to buy it.
We finished the bottle of wine and asked for another. The waitress then asked if we were driving as she would not serve us if we were. We explained that we were walking and she went out to get the other bottle. After a glass of this she offered to keep the rest of the wine in their fridge until the next time we visit. We declined and finished it before leaving.
We love the food but won't be hurrying back to eat at the restaurant, think we will get take-away and can buy our own wine from Countdown.
