Well -- one of the best meals in an Indian restaurant. We discovered Great India maybe three years ago, and have returned several times, always enjoying a different dish on the menu. Even when very busy the friendly manager makes sure we are comfortably seated and looked after by staff. Well located near theatres, excellent value.

The expectations are always high. GI had the best service in Wellington combined with excellent food.

This evening we tried the Goan Pork and Venison Masala. Both were superb.

What surprised us was the Vegetable Curry Gujarat style. Amazing. Peasant food to die for.

The staff were impeccable as always

Having, with one exception, found the Indian restaurants in Wellington to be somewhat lacking in quality it was a pleasure to finally experience Great India. The only question remains, why did we wait so long?
The food was wonderful with good flavour that was never blown away by the over-zealous use of spice found elsewhere. Even the hottest of the curries we tried went down a treat. The vegetarian option was also highly recommended by one of the party.
The service was attentive, without being pushy, and it is a restaurant where one can still talk to companions without being overpowered by background music or excessive noise form fellow diners.
Overall a real treat and we will definitely be returning.

8 of us turned up for lunch without a booking so we were lucky that they could seat us although there was a little panic in the eyes of the waiter to begin with - will book next time :) Once seated we were kind of left to it, we finally caught the waiters eye after 20 minutes and he went straight to taking our food order - we went ahead and ordered drinks at the same time after asking for the drinks menu - a bit disappointing. Food was fantastic as usual however the service really let them down this time - very unusual so maybe we just arrived on a bad day. Will go back and give them another go.

As expat curry lovers we have always felt underwhelmed with most Indian restaurants since moving to Aus 6 years ago. Not so at Great India in Wellington! We were there for 5 days and ate there twice; the first time we had the Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Dunsark, (old favorites!), and the second visit branched out into the menu for the Squid Curry & Lamb Gehtu Masala, all fantastic.
Service was excellent, on the second visit it was really busy but the owner personally apologised because we were not served promptly! Hot towels after the meal was a nice thing as well. There was a great atmosphere in the restaurant with a mix of couples, families, friends and business people.
We would highly recommend anyone visiting Wellington to visit Great India, superb food, excellent service and great value.
