Lovely Indian tea, and courteous staff. However, in our opinion, we did not find the food very appetizing, though it has its fair share of customers, probably regulars too. The only reason we decided on this place was because it was open late at night. Other times I would likely give it a skip. Maybe go back for the tea though! :)

Came here for lunch with a couple of work friends after being told that this was where authentic curry was made and had a very mixed experience. I was very excited about the prospect of a Butter Chicken roll and was quite pleased with the flavour of the curry -a lot more savoury and had more spice than the usual sweet fluoro butter chicken that is served at other places. However, half of my roll appeared to be onions which was not appetising at all! The taste of onion was so overpowering that I could only get about two thirds of the way through my roll before it became too much (and then pulled out the chicken pieces to eat separately..).
The masala chips were absolutely delightful though and I daresay they would give McDonalds and KFC a run for their money! The mango lassi I got was also great. If I were to visit again, I think I would ask for no onions or have the curry with rice like my colleague did.

Depending on your knowledge and preference for Indian food, Kati Grill can be a great or a satisfactory experience. They serve kati rolls - a popular kind of Indian street food. Think of a kati roll as India's version of a kebab. And there are plenty of katis here - ranging from vegetarian (paneer, channa) to chicken and even beef. They're all priced around $10 and for about $5 more you can add masala chips.
The food here is definitely tasty and authentic enough, but I can't help but think of it as overpriced street food (which kind of defeats its very purpose!). I mean $5 for some chips (which are basically fries with some spices sprinkled over them)!!
But for someone who has never delved in anything Indian beyond a butter chicken, this will be a nice (spicy) surprise! The Paneer Tikka and Chicken TIkka katis here are a good place to start.

Conveniently located near the corner of Queen St and K’Rd, Kati Grill is in prime position for a quick sit-down meal or when you need to grab and go. Kati rolls, a popular and compact street food in India, are the main deal here but don’t forget to follow it with a side of their famous masala chips: they’re India’s answer to KFC fries.

Love the food. Everything on their menu tastes delicious.
Wait time is really long, sometimes up to 30 mins. But because they make everything fresh, this is not a problem.

We were recommended to try this place next time we were in town.
I ordered the chilli chicken and rice and my wife ordered the butter chicken wrap. After waiting a wee while for our food, we were not disappointed with the result. My wife said the wrap tasted lovely and fresh, mine was also tasted very good. In our passion to order we did not spot the Mango Lassi's, good reason to return and try their other dishes.
The decor is typical take away, but the food is definitely not !!!!
Looking forward to next visit :-)

The only place I found in Auckland serving authentic Indian kathi rolls. A quite little shop on the Karangahape Road, Kati Grill provides rolls in different flavours; all of them priced at around $10. Combine these with a Masala Tea and you are very close to the authentic street food experience of India. They do take some time to prepare these rolls and make sure you mention how spicy you want the rolls to be, else you might be in for a not-so-pleasant surprise.

Awesome Awesome food. I've been a fan of grilled foods all my life going back to my days in India where this is a popular form of street food. I was so happy when I discovered this place a few years ago now. Being a vegetarian means i am limited by choice in most places but Kati Grill has about 6 options for me and they are all 5 stars in my book. The staff are friendly and the service and ambience is great. $10 can buy you a good feed here.

I have been to Kati Grill several times now and have introduced my non-Indian friends to this place and unanimously we love it! The stuffing is delicious and very close to flavours of the street food in India, though not 100% there. The service is prompt and I would recommend Kati Grill for a quick, no fuss delicious meal on the run.

Love eating here simply cause its fresh and absolutely delicious.The staff are very friendly and the service is quite good too. I personally like the lamb seek Kati roll and the paneer makhani kati roll. Definitely worth trying :-)

I've been here twice, and really enjoyed it. Both times I had the Achari Paneer Kati Roll and Masala Chips - really yummy. There are loads of choices for vegetarians, which is always an advantage for me. The wraps are a great new addition to the range of Indian food that can be bought in Auckland. I can imagine them being a great post-booze up snack, though they are filling enough for a meal.
I have become a regular here since my first review as the food is just delicious. It seems to be the only Indian place in Auckland that cooks paneer in a tandoor, which adds a delicious smokiness to it. The new Paneer Makhani roll is divine - though very rich! That it is always busy and new items are continually being added to the menu is a very good sign indeed.
