I dined here with a friend on Easter Sunday without a booking and was promptly seated. My friend having forgotten that wholesalers were not open during Easter Sunday very quickly order the first of two bottles of wine which just as quickly as we were seated arrived. We shared the poppadum and dips as starters which went down almost as... More

Bought a Chicken Bhuna Hot tonight from Bolliwood Greenhithe. It had an extremely weird sweet taste and though I aways order Hot, this was so hot it burnt everything, lips, tongue, mouth. Almost tasted like Hot butter chicken or Mango chicken with so much chilli to disguise taste. No taste of spices supposed to be in there, garam masala, ginger,... More

Ponsonby is a nice area to spend Friday night. Atmosphere in Bollywood was no exception; relaxed crowd and people in good mood. Our fish and vegetarian choices were alright, nothing to tell to the neighbors though. Friendly service, a bit sluggish.

My wife and I ordered the Maharajah Banquet. It was one of the best Indian meals I have ever had. The atmosphere was excellent and service very good. Will be back the next time I am in Auckland!

One of the better places to get a curry in Auckland. We had the poppadoms for starters and a Chicken tikka for mains. Both were good, the curry had the right amount of heat. A good night, service fine also.

Some of the dishes were alright, one was not so great. It's not that bad, it's just not that great either.

Generally, restaurants in Ponsonby don't go wrong, and this one is no exception. Welcoming service, good flavour, reasonable prices (special available sometimes). Only problem would be the parking (and this applies to all other restaurants in the same area). Ponsonby is always busy in the evening so if you want street parking, it may take awhile to get one.

If you want the best and the most authentic indian food, you have to eat here. Food is awesome and services are even better. We had gone as group of 12 people and all of us enjoyed till the last morsel. Iam an Indian and I was amazed at the quality and taste of the food.
