Try: mango chicken and butter chicken. It's just that addictive taste. Even though they make it in large batches at the back of the store and tell you to wait while they're just heating it up. It still taste nice. An order of one takeaway curry can easily fill up 1 and a half persons, and the rice is enough for two people. Of course it's not the healthiest thing you can eat but if your craving that sweet/creamy food court butter chicken taste, try curry from here it's much nicer!

Probably my favourite Indian takeaways. Always tastes the same. Doesn't take long. The curries have so much flavour! Oh and the nann, always soft and piping hot. Friendly staff and great service.

I have been to the Indian Kitchen on several occasions. I first began trying their food as a takeaway as they do awesome deals on takeaway curries - I later learnt that they also do fantastic deals for dining in too! They have recently refurbished their restaurant and even though small, the atmosphere when dining in never feels uncomfortable or awkward. We were served by a couple of wait staff when we recently visited the restaurant for me to enjoy their dining in option and they were amazing! Service was fast and so friendly, very attentive and interested to hear about whether we were enjoying our meals or had any problems. Had a curry that was a little hotter than I'd hoped but this could be due to my mistake in ordering or just a small problem that could be caused by different chefs adding different ratios of spice. All in all, definitely my favourite local Indian restaurant and takeaway. Generous portions and fantastic prices - oh and I will recommend the tikka masala which has a beautiful taste!

Amaaazing curry. Lovely staff and can't go wrong with their deals. Lamb sagwala and tikka masala are our go to's but never been disappointed

Just dined in again for curry monday have not for a long time been busy but have done a few takeaways. Food was amazing fast and friendly service. place has been done up and looks and feels great. will be back again for sure Yumo yumo yumo

The food here is so good. 100% recommend this place. This has been my go-to indian food place for the last 5 years. However, it is not the biggest place, wouldnt really have a big family dinner here. It's quite small and the decor is alright. Value: They usually always have deals, for takeaway or dine in too. The portions are also very decent and worth the money. Food: the food is super tasty. And the naan is almost always cooked to perfection! They also are not stingy with their rice (saves having to cook extra at home if you takeaway). Service: 4/5 From left to right: butter chicken, do pyazza (thick, onion rich coconut based curry), and tikka masala

Great authentic tasting food with wonderful portion sizes. Small restaurant but very good vibes and service. Food came out quickly and tasted amazing

Great price, reasonably priced, great location, good staff, very yummy food Have come several times never let down.... I Love Indian food,..

Excellent service and taste. I asked for spicy and got spicy unlike most places that white there curries up. I would definitely recommend trying if you like curry

My mother, sister and I ate at the Indian Kitchen last night and it was wonderful! I am vegan, mum is vegetarian and my sister is an omnivore and we were all catered for. There were many things on the menu that could be made vegan and their Roti is vegan too and delicious. I ended up having a Vegetable Rogan Josh which was divine. As a starter I had vegetable pakora which was so light and un-greasy that I even though it was a HUGE serving, I could have eaten another serving all over again. The service there was attentive without being overbearing and the small atmosphere of the restaurant was cozy on a cold winter night. We will definitely be eating there again soon – can’t wait to take my husband and children to try it. Admittedly I did need to be rolled out of there after such an awesomely filling meal but it was well worth it! Highly recommended.

Very good food! Would recommend :) lots of vegan options - always super delicious & even better $10 night Monday-Thursday which is great! Great service, friendly people

Good service and food quality. Our waiter happily catered to specific diet needs and the service was quick. Cute little place to visit if you are in the area

Delicious food and beautiful presentation. We very happy to cater to specific dietary needs.

During our entire dinner, my friends & I were the only sit-in customers on a Sunday evening. Fortunately take-away customers kept ringing & drifting in to take their food; otherwise I wonder how it can survive. We had butter chicken, tikka masala chicken & rogan josh beef, together with a plain naan & rice. Both chicken & beef were very over-cooked. A rather disappointed dinner! (Food - 2/5; Service - 3/5; Ambience - 3/5)

Fantastic food, best in the East! But shocking customer service.... young men at the counter were rude and unwelcoming. Did not pass the reciept or food, reciept was thrown on counter and we had to retrieve the food ourselves.

For $10 the curry you get tastes really good and is extremely filling. I've had curry from other places and this currently beats them all. I would suggest for that people try butter chicken, korma and madras because they are made sooo good here. Probably one of my fav places to eat atm.

Indian Kitchen would definately be a top contender for the best Indian cuisine in East Auckland. Although the retaurant lacks in ambience, the food is great and is awesome value for money (with the weekly specials). I've ordered from here on multiple occasions and everytime they are always busy (with takeaways) - which just goes to show how good the place is. With this in mind it would pay to order over the phone cause waiting times can be an excess of 20-30min+ My go to is typically their Butter Chicken, Samosas and Naans. I don't know what it is, but they do it right! Recently, I opted for a mild Beef Korma and it came out spicy which was a let down, but that was only 1 of very few bad experiences with The Indian Kitchen. If you're ever in the mood for Indian that is both yummy and value for money - I'd highly recommend The Indian Kitchen.
