The food was awesome and the service was just superb! A must when visiting Wellington. We tried the Buttered Chicken and Chicken Tikka Masala. After the food, the waiter offered us a hot towel to freshen ourselves.. cool!

I love going to great India, not only for the food but for the amazing atmosphere and outstanding staff. Just recently I have had to go dairy free and Great India has been more than accommodating to ensure I can have my regular meal served dairy free (both dining in and taking out), including advising on which breads I can...

High quality food, fairly good service but pretty expensive for Indian (~$30 for a main plus naan and rice).

Fantastic food! Fantastic service. Two highlights of the service were they bring you hot hand towels at the end of the meal ... what a brilliant idea, especially after digging into curries! I now want this at all Indian restaurants... such a small offering but a great ending to a delicious dinner. Service was extremely attentive and professional. Only complaint... More

We've been here a few times over the years. This time around was average. Service was slow and the food wasn't great. Entree only comes with mint chutney, no tamarind sauce. We got a chicken vindaloo, chicken wasn't tandoor and wasn't spicy as advertised. It came with potatoes but it was more like a potato. We also got a lamb... More

I don't normally eat Indian ... hate the spices Was delighted to enjoy an entire meal that didn't burn my delicate mouth ... while the rest of my group enjoyed dishes as spicy as they wanted them. When you ask for very very mild they really do it :)

We went for celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. There are many, many reviews of the place so I will be brief. The service was impeccable. On our visit it matched any 4 or 5 star place. We were made to feel welcome and well attended. The food was of the highest quality. Everything flavourful and beautiful looking. The restaurant was... More

It is always a pleasure to have Indian food while travelling abroad. For a change, we could taste a variety of chicken preparations and rotis here. If you are looking for Indian food, you are at right place. Very polite staff
