Reviews for Great India Restaurant
23rd March 2014 5 star
We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of some friends and it was heartening to discover that those recommendations were not empty promises. The Great India restaurant could not be better named. The little things make the difference. The sophisticated non-Indian music provided a non-kitsch backdrop for an unobtrusive front of house to do their work and a gave us a very pleasurable dining experience. The food was simply the tastiest Indian food we have ever tasted. Vindaloo and Butter Chicken to die for in realistic meal-size quantities. Perfect. Alas I don’t think they would deliver to Christchurch. I will ask them today .

I visited this restaurant with my friend for lunch. We order two curries one veg and one non-veg. When we got our food I was so shocked by the portion size (too small). The veg curry was off. When I told manager about that, he gave me very funny and dumb explanation. He told me that the curry is not off, it taste different because we do not cook our curries in traditional Indian style instead of that we cook our curries in British style and we use British spices and condiments in our curries. That’s why it taste different. Well to that smart manager, anyone who has eaten curries in his life before can easily tell whether the food is off or not. I paid the whole bill and we left the place without eating our meal and decided never to come back.

The only Indian restaurant you’ll ever need. I’ve been going for 10 years. In my opinion it is head and shoulders above anything else. Always consistent. There are too many highlights to mention – but I’ll settle for quality. Top quality, I’ve never found anywhere else that serves such well cut chicken. Keep it up. I’ll be the one greedily, but appreciatively enjoying every perfectly balanced mouthful…

Hands down the best restaurant in Wellington! My partner and I both work in hospitality and so can be rather critical when eating out but we were both blown away with the exceptional service, flawless food and fantastic atmosphere. We were in passing of Great India at 9pm on a Sunday night and were shocked to find they would happily seat us for dinner. The gentleman who greeted us (the owners son) was the perfect host, not only catering to us with 5* service but reassuring us throughout the evening to take our time and offering us more courses as the night proceeded. We did not plan on eating in the restaurant, just happened to stumble across on our way home. We both have found our new favourite hesitant and can not wait to return with our family and friends. Thank you Great India for an unforgettable experience and superb hospitality. Your floor and kitchen staff are professional and exceeded all expectations. Definitely set a high bar in Wellington not just for Indian resultants but for all bars and restaurants. Thanks again, we will be back.

What sets this Indian restaurant apart is the service! The service is just impeccable they go over and above to make sure you are attended too and the hand towels at the end are a lovely touch.
The food is really delicious too especially the coconut rice. The restaurant offers a great place to catch up for lunch or a lovely place for a romantic meal in the evening. It is a little more expensive in the evenings than the others in the region but I think it is worth it if you are looking for something a little more special.
