Satya South Indian Restaurant Information

Satya is the first South Indian restaurant to establish itself in New Zealand. The South Indian cuisine is age old, based on Ayurvedic principles and tends to make use of sweet, sour & spicy flavour contrasts.

They make our own yoghurt; fresh spices are ground at very frequent intervals and they only use sunflower oil for cooking. Their motive is good food - and their weakness is good food!

This restaurant is not your usual Indian food. It is so fresh, so tasty and amazing. Well worth going to just for the entrees. Has a great atmosphere and the staff are exceptionally good at explaining or choosing for you.

We had heard good reports about Satya and I had in particular been recommended this one in Great North Road so we decided to give it a go this evening and we would happily return.The restaurant is situated in a slightly weird location but people definitely seem to be able to find it. The decor is simple but with an Indian theme and silk draped across the ceiling. Considering our table was originally for four people I expect they try and squash people in; it was a suitable size for two people.We started with some thick Mango Lassis that were pretty good and for our entree Dahi Puri and Hypderabadi Lamb. These were both very good and packed with flavour.For our main we had Apollo Fish (Dry Curry), Mutter Paneer, Garlic Paratha and Cheese Paratha. We enjoyed all of these dishes and in particular enjoyed having a dry curry for a change.The service wasn’t friendly or attentive and the wait staff were all very casually dressed. It is a very relaxed environment so don’t expect anything else.The food is great and we will be back for it.

Yum. Double Yum. Truly delicious indian food. I used to drive about 40 minutes in Melbourne to get to my favourite indian restaurant, and finally there is one in Auckland that is verrrrry almost as good. Standing ovation.
