“Tulsi Petone”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Food on a whole was fine butter chicken to die for garlic naan also great.
The thing that let them down was the lack of good customer service.
This was my second visit and I specifically asked for my own single serve rice, as per my last visit the rice comes out on one plate for all. It looks like nobody cares and leaves me wondering if they just put all the unused rice onto a plate for a second service.
Pretty simple request...... why don't you oblige your customers?

“Great Indian Cuisine”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The restaurant is located in Cuba district. The food is delicious. The quantities are very small, nothing like what you get here in USA. Prices are moderate to high. That are special take out deals. Go for it if you enjoy Indian food.

“Tulsi in Petone: nice setting, attentive service, and great food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Like a few others commenting here, we had a two for... voucher but our experience couldn't have been better. We went early on a Saturday evening, and there was only one other family in the restaurant when we got there. We were given a choice of tables, and we were brought menus very quickly. I showed our voucher, and the staff were helpful and attentive. Our timing must have been spot on because by this point the restaurant was close to half full. We ordered, and the drinks were quickly served, closely followed by our meals. Again, the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was superb, delightful flavours, tender meat, nice fluffy rice, and awesome naan bread. Both of us felt the meals could have been a bit spicier. During the course of our dinner, two staff came to check on us, to ensure everything was alright, and at no stage did I feel like they were trying to up-sell more drinks or additional courses. The restaurant is nicely decorated, and well designed ceiling keeps the noise down. We are already planning a return visit.

“Dissapointment”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I purchased a voucher off a website which entitled the bearer to two mains, two naans and two drinks. When my friend and I arrived at the restaurant (which was fairly empty) the man at the counter did not greet us at all and when i approached him with the voucher he read it and pointed to a table and said "over by the wall". Needless to say we were a bit taken aback by the rudeness however we gave him the benefit of the doubt, although while waiting for our meal we noticed he did it to another couple. The food came out quickly, again without a smile from the server, which was only warm with an average flavour.
We finished our meal and left, went to the counter to confirm that everything was covered under our voucher, all he said was "yup", we said "thank you" and left, there was no "thank you" or "have a nice night" in return. Overall the food was probably of the level we expected for such a restaurant but the service was very disappointing for no reason, they were not busy and had no excuse for treating us like we were more of a nuisance than valued customers. I wont be back in a hurry.

“Excellent indian food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Excellent selection of tasty, flavoursome Indian dishes. Excellent value for a night out. Went back there a second night during our stay which says something. And they accept bartercard. Staff were accommodating and friendly. Would eat there again for sure.
