Food is authentic Indian style, really tasty and fresh. Love the décor, great music, staff were extremely friendly and service was excellent. Great price too…
The only extra I would’ve liked would be some chutneys – tamarind, mango, maybe a lime pickle on offer?
Recommend the butter chicken (not Kiwi style like you might be used to, far superior to that!) and the Malai Kofta. Plus its great to see Indian drinks on the menu…’Limca’ and ‘Thumbs Up’. Will defo return for another Indian experience!!
Been here 2 times so far. The menu has great choices. Had non-veg and veg mains with Rice, Naan and Roti. The desert such as Mango Kulfi is as it should be with nice presentation.
The food has an authentic and fresh flavor. Their complimentary sides are great too and much appreciated along with their warm and welcoming customer service! The serving time can be slow when at half capacity. The decor (apart from the assortment of alcoholic drinks!) in the restaurant evokes a true feeling of India too. The prices are reasonable too! Overall, I definitely recommend this Indian restaurant than others in the CBD.
Went to Chawlas Restaurant after a movie one night (went around 8.30pm). We ordered Creamy Chicken, Rarra Chicken, Butter Paneer, Rogan Josh and Chicken Tikka.
The service was slightly slow and the waiters did forget to give us rice after our curries had been served but it was quickly noticed and dealt with. Otherwise the waiters/waitresses were very friendly and helpful, recommending dishes and explaining ones we weren’t sure about.
The food was delicious. Good quality and a very good quantity for what you are paying. The creamy chicken I personally would not be able to eat alone as it is quite rich for my tastes but was still lovely.
The deals and discounts they have are also very good and overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Will come back again
We waited more than an hour for our food….and it was not good. Very few customers and still we waited. Nice owners but doesn’t make up for a bad time and good money spent. Would never go back.
Four of us had lunch today (Tuesday), $16 each for a curry, a beer, two poppadoms, one chapati and (for me) chicken saagwala and rice. Food was delicious, service prompt and couldn’t really fault it. We were the only pink faces there, all the other diners looked Indian which I usually reckon is a good sign. Will definitely go again. The others had a Chcken Korma, a chicken tikka masala and a rogen josh and all said it was excellent,
Went here end of sept with my colleagues who are all keen eaters of Indian food all over the globe. Firstly must say some of these reviews on here seem very suspect and suspicious as the food was very average, I could only be honest it is not even at the level of Shamiana in a food court.
Restaurant presentation was simple, okay staff but paid little attention to the quality of food. Slow service. Would not go out of my way to eat here. Nothing special.
Well done. It’s great to see a restaurant which has the courage to show what authentic Indian food is. After a very long time tasted some fabulous food. Liked the fact that they don’t ask Mild, medium or Hot. As I believe, cuisine should be served as it should be, not tailored to mild it down or heat it up. Food is appreciated when it has the right flavors and seasoning. Chawlas Indian Restaurant showcases the cuisine very well. Service is great. Personal and friendly. Not pushy at all. Will definitely visit again and again. If one has a craving for true Indian food, this is a must visit Restaurant. I am convinced they’ll maintain the standards.
Excellent food & excellent service. Mr. Singh is very polite and gives good recommendations. We ordered Indian medium hot & that is exactly what was served. We will definitely visit again. Keep it up!!
Fantastic food, awesome staff….excellent service :)))))
Excellent Service! Authentic Indian taste.We had Cream chicken,Rarra Chicken,Malai Kabab,Black dal & Palam Paneer.
All too good to be true:)Most importantly they would serve with a Smile.The staff were very polite as well.They made us sit & wait we waited for our take away & asked us for drinks etc.Thats the service we miss in most restaurants
Delicious, magnificent, authentic and fresh come into mind when describing the food at Chawlas.
Ordering a range of vegetarian dishes, each one appeared to be made with an independent base (unlike other Indian restaurants) which provided each dish with their unique flavour.
The service is excellent and friendly.
Would I recommend to a friend, YES! and I will be joining them for round two.
Awesome food. Not your usual ,over creamy ,slops. great service and a huge organic and Vegetarian selection as well as all the usual meat dishes. The Rarra Chicken was great. It is a chicken dish which has a mince gravy sauce.
The service was excellent, timely and attentive and the restaurant was immaculately clean.
Mango lassi was to die for.
I, myself being Indian, would bet that no other place in New Zealand would serve more authentic food than Chawla’s. I used to visit Chawla’s very often back in India and this place has the same quality food as it was there. Staff are very friendly (happy faces). Prices are good. I would certainly recommend everyone to try this place out.
Went along with my friends to the restaurant last night, food was really good. Do try Raaraa Chicken its awesome
Best Indian food ever had especially the cream chicken.
Good service with smiley faces all around.
Food is really different with authentic flavors and not as creamy as other restaurants. The desert was really awesome mango kulfi is just so delicious.
Staff is very friendly and helpful and have good knowlegde of Indian food. Keep it up
