We decided to give Urban Turban a go despite the mixed feedback and were meet by a pleasant experience. The food was really tasty and I felt the portion sizes were fair given the price. We have a shared samosa starter, a all you can eat curry each and a couple of beers and the meal came in at under $75 which I felt given the location and other restaurants in the area was not unreasonable. The service was prompt and really pleasant and it was a busy Saturday night . Would happily eat her again and say it is a pleasant place to eat if curry is what you fancy on the night

Lovely day in Auckland so thought lunch at the waters edge would be a good idea. I hadn't been to Urban Turban previously but looked appealing and the destination can't be better for enjoying the sunshine.
We didn't feel like curry so shared a few tapas and a pizza with my friends. The Garlic Prawn pizza is really very good (didn't skimp on the prawns either) and the Chicken Farcha was also a hit. The meat balls were pretty fiery (but flavoursome) so quite a wise choice to get the paneer tikka which softened the blow. Enjoyed a nice glass of Pinot Gris too. Overall a suprisingly good experience and certainly will look to make a return visit in the coming months.

I pulled out of dinner at Urban Turban at the last minute and my 9 friends went. I just had to give some feedback on their behalf just to warn others. I had heard very mixed reviews and some really bad so I thought we could give them the benefit of the doubt and visit in the hopes in was good. How bad can a curry night be?!

Apparently the service was really bad, the worst they have ever had.
However the food was really good. And to top it off Richie McCaw sat at at table near by.

Maybe avoid going into the city for this one as there are plenty of better curry houses around.

Had lunch at Urban Turban today
It was super busy and the food n service was just great
To me, living in Auckland for well over 20 years, was the best Indian food.
My staff and my experience was just top grade, we will be back for our christmas function here
A visit here for real Bombay style food is a Must - it truly a great experience - also they have free Wifi

Worst Indian resturant I have ever been. Guys this place is total rip off!!! Food is not great and the price is of a 5 star resturant. For mains currys are bottom less which comes with one naan bread and a table spoon of rice. Which is not sufficient and to order extra naan bread is 7$ . I do not recommend anyone that place.. Indians!! The food doesn't taste like Indian food!!

my recent experience at Urban Turban proves my theory that generally you should make your own mind up about a restaurant before being too quick to judge based on others experiences.
Had read some fairly negative reviews on a number of sites including this one but making the most of the spring afternoon sunshine, decided to visit wynyard quarter. The area was quite busy (seemed Aucklanders were making the most of it) and Urban Turban quite full but managed to nab a table outside with a friend.
There's definately some 'safe' westernised options but I do like the overall concept. stand out for me were the spicy chicken strips...talk about firestarter!
Service was fast but friendly but aside from the view, decor etc wasn't anything out of the ordinary.
I'm glad I gave Urban Turban a go and will return again soon

Hadn't been into the Wynyard Quarter area since the World Cup so was keen to see it with my partner without the festival crowds.
We decided on a meal at Urban Turban - we're both fans of Indian cuisine but more often than not walk away from the experience thinking we could almost have done it ourselves.
Pleased to say Urban Turban didn't give us the same feeling. I had the vindaloo and when combined with great beer, perfect for a mid-winter treat.
Service was good too - meals were received fairly quickly and only had positive vibes from the staff. I'd definitely go back again.
