It was quiet when we got there (around 6pm on a Saturday) but it didn't stay quiet for long. The choice of curries was excellent, including plenty to keep my vegetarian partner happy. We both enjoyed our meals, they were very tasty. The restaurant was temporarily unable to serve alcohol when we were there, but the lassi was excellent, and... More

My friend and I went there last Sunday. I had a coupon to use so I called them in advance but arrived 20mins late. The manager/staff refused to seat us because we arrived late even though all the tables were empty except for one. He didn’t give us a valid reason why we couldn’t be accommodated. To top this he...

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service too was excellent. We will eat at Aaina again when next we visit Wellington.

A disappointing evening. Food was was bland and lacked authenticity. I had a beef biryani which was not a biryani as I understand it, but merely a rather ordinary beef stir-fry. My wife's muttar paneer was equally ho-hum. My feeling was that the menu was probably too extensive, and beyond the cook's ability to handle it.

Please ignore any previous reviews. I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant on Anzac Day for a friends birthday. The service was amazing, what shocked me was that the currys were bottomless so you could get a refill on everything including Naan and Rice. I was blown away by everything, its a shame I had to leave early!... More

This was our second trip to Aaina in a week. They are under new management and are impressing impressing us big time with their food and service. Our first visit was a random visit because they dropped a flyer in our letterbox. We loved it and so decided to book a birthday dinner for our friends there the following week.... More
