Reviews for Curry Village Indian Restaurant
by Stuart R.
19th April 2013
I have just had the most terrible curry from here! Undercooked chicken.. Pink! Chicken madras was a sloppy bland excuse for a meal. The manager and his wife are rude!
Ignore comments made about jewel of India! It is actually one of the best Indian restaurants in Auckland !
Please avoid this restaurant like you would avoid the plague!!
Indian connoisseur (has been to Birmingham, England where the best curries are made!)

What a great night, the most excellent curries I have ever had, very authentic dishes, we all enjoyed the evening very much, staff were helpful, I think we chose their best selection, we will be back. Well worth a visit. Happy eating.

We have had many deliveries from here over the last four years.
Always high quality food and they have mobile eftpos also.

I had been going to the restaurant for 5 years and had always enjoyed the food and the service. Eat there a couple of months ago and met the new manger, who was rude and obnoxious. After that i decided to find myself a new Indian Restaurant.

Passed this place many times and never looked twice. Big mistake, wish we had tried it sooner. Until now we have been settling for mediocre curries. We’ve lived in Auckland 7 years now and this was by far the nicest we’ve had in a long long time. We had the onion bahjis which were lovely as well as a butter chicken and a korma with garlic naans. It was cooked to perfection and the meat was perfectly tender and supple. Asked for medium spice but found it a bit mild which didn’t worry me as I’m not usually that brave!!! Would recommend to anyone in the area it’s worth a drive (they deliver as well). Will be making this a regular in our home =)

Been here several times and it’s always been a satisfactory experience. Not this evening! 3 meals and one bowl of cold, overcooked rice to share… I pointed out that the rice was cold and overcooked, it was replaced by hot overcooked rice (stuck together in a big lump in the bowl.) Hungry & tired we ate the now cold curry. At payment the owner looked shocked that the meal was dreadful but was still happy to ask for and accept full payment of $70+ dollars!! Never again..

We live in the area and simply cannot stop going back to this place!
One of the most authentic tasting Indian restaurants in Auckland, if not the most. The lamb takatak, chicken tikka masala, beef madras are all superb, as are the onion bargies and the keema naan bread. The waitstaff are charming, and it’s owned and run by a lovely Indian couple who are always looking to please. On occasion our meal has come out too mild and we’ve asked them to fix it, and they do so with absolutely no fuss. Don’t get me wrong either, they know how to make it spicy if that’s what you like.
All round just a quality curry house. If you’re in the bays, avoid Jewel of India in Mission Bay (it’s awful!) and come to Curry Village in St. Heliers instead. But don’t come too often, because I want to be able to get a table!
Simply the best curry around.

Completely stuffed up my takeaway order. Missed my starter and somehow a mild chicken turned into burning hot lamb. Thankfully Indian takeaway places are everywhere so I never have to return to give these knuckle dragging clowns anymore of my money or my time.
Please Please Please spend your money elsewhere!!!!

This place I had heard was under new management, being down the road from my place it is now a convenient good indian place to eat. Being health conscious I ordered the saag lamb which was beautifully fresh, tender and juicy with a thick healthy sauce. The bread had dramatically improved – soft light garlicy goodness a huge change since the last time we visited 3 years back! We also tried the butter chicken which was generous chunks of chicken thigh in a creamy, smooth and moreish sauce. The staff were well presented and friendly, helping us choose the right meals and offering plenty of rice. We wil be back!

The meal started nicely with a tasty enough mixed platter with nice condiments, but went downhill from there. The naan was too doughy and thick; the Goan Fish Curry was not made using fresh fish (had that bad smelly fish odour) and was not tangy enough; the Saag Gosht (lamb & spinach curry) had very chewy lamb (possibly hoggett or mutton but certainly not cooked until tender) and the curry was a little tasteless. Unfortunately we won’t be going back.
