Great Service but the food is too much commercialized - Mass production therefore not personalized and not tasty

I've never been to India so I really can't say if this is authentic or not, but it sure is yummy. I was recommended it by my Indian work friend. For $31 got a butter paneer, a lamb dish, 3 naan breads and 2 mango lassies. So cheap. It was all very yummy and good portion sizes.

Our friends arrived early to get a table. No booking available. They waited 20 minutes. We went for an early dinner, 1800 hrs. / 6 pm. The food was very tasty and delicious. Impressed. Large serving. Pleasantly offered and supplied a doggy bag to go. Would go again.

We dine out here for lunch regularly and it’s always 10/10. Our waiter, Jaggi, provides great service and always has a new dish to recommend. The food is delicious and their Butter Chicken is the best I have ever had! I highly recommend Smart India!

You won't find a better indian restaurant in Auckland. They have a takeaway and a dining area. The tikka is awesome and all the other dishes i had there were qualitatively high.

We love this place and the great selection that you can get. We always get takeaway as this place is so busy on the weekends. Enjoy the chicken biryani and tandoori chicken

Flavour and quality of food excellent. Recommended. Good location, service and modern clean restaurant. 2 mains with rice Naan and a coke for $41 was excellent value.

Loved this Indian restaurant which our son introduced us to. I found the sauces very well textured and not the usual bulk stuff! Had the chicken tikka as I was the only non-vege at the table and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

Thank Bunkshyde
