Visited Wellington first time and wanted to try real authentic Indi-chinese food. My friends recommended me to try curry bhavan's food and to be honest it was really a good one. I had such an amazing authentic Indian food after 1 year.

Definitely the best curry in Wellington, no question. The chicken tikka masala is to die for, as is the butter chicken. Quality premium ingredients and amazing value for money. The service is exceptional, they are the friendliest people and are always interested in getting real feedback from customers about what was good and bad. Not many restaurants are so focused...

We come to this small family run restaurant frequently. It is simple decor and the food is always delicious. I try different dishes and I've loved them all.

It is truly a curry heaven. The dishes are all different and the service is consistently good. We bring our overseas visitors here too they love it. Lunch specials with plain fresh naan and rice are just the right size.

The best thing about Curry Heaven is definitely the service. The guy that works there is so inviting and makes you feel at home every time. The curry is also AMAZING. I think the service makes the curry taste better too. Would 100% recommend!

The only curry place i have been to where each dish tastes different and no generic "curry" sauce on everything, the ingredient are well prepared, and portions are enough to make you full without feeling like you can't move afterwards. Its a family run small no fuss place with amazing food and excellent service. They also do take away but... More
