The Best Indian Restaurants
Serving up a list of the best Indian restaurants is always fraught with danger, as inevitably everybody's local curry house is apparently the best. Putting that to one side, this is a list of our favourite Auckland restaurants serving Indian food - be they curry houses in the middle of nowhere or high-end venues with the gongs to match.
iVillage at Victoria
Victoria Park, 210-218 Victoria Street West, Auckland
The newest kid on the block, and we’d go so far as to say that it’s already one of the best in town. Situated in the new Victoria Park complex, iVillage is great when dining in with lovely warm surroundings, but does a mean takeaway as well. We’d recommend the Balti Dum Goat curry, and the spicy Handi Chicken. Their naan is superb as well.

Satya South Indian Restaurant
17 Great North Road, Auckland, 1011
So popular that they now have 4 locations around the city, we recommend the Great North Road branch. Their famous Dahi Puri is a stunning starter, and we struggle to move past the Murj Badami, a south Indian dry curry which is one of the best Indian dishes in the city. On the pricier side, but worth it.

Kashmir Indian Restaurant
208 Kitchener Road, Auckland
The best Indian on the Shore, with two locations (Milford and Albany). It’s as garish as anything, but produces great dishes, including a renowned chilli chicken.
Oh Calcutta
151 Parnell Road, Auckland
A Parnell stalwart which has been consistent for years. It may not be the flashiest Indian restaurant in town, but you know you’ll leave feeling satisfied, and more than a little bit full.

Monsoon Poon
Cnr Hobson and Custom Street, Auckland
To be fair, Monsoon Poon has more of a general South East Asian menu but their Indian dishes on their menu are beautiful, especially the 25 Herb and Spice Lamb Curry (if you head to their website, you can download the recipe to try at home).
