I’m not an Indian food expert but everything we had was delicious. The waiter’s suggestion of ‘kiwi hot’ was perfect. The best part of our visit though was it’s service. The waiters were so friendly and polite and we will definitely go back.

I dined there yesterday with my family. We ordered:
Malai Kiofta (Indian Hot) – delicious! could have been a bit more spicy
Bombay Aaloo (Mild – for our son) – great dish for kids. low on spice and high on flavour.
Lamb biryanai – we were stuffed bythe time we got to this but never th eless tasted good (different taste to hyderabadi biryani). This contains mint.
Butter Naan – fresh, soft and buttery = excellent!!
Rice – they charge $2 per person. This should be complementary I reckon.
Mango Kulfi – a good desert, worth a try.
Lemon lime and bitters – mixed on order, not the bottle one.
Masala Tea – avereage.

I had takeaways from Chaahat on Monday as they have $10 mains Mon, Tues and Wed (dine in and takeaway). The staff were very friendly and helpful. I ordered the Butter Chicken, Lamb Saagwala and a garlic Naan. Both the curries were good but not exceptional, same with the Naan. I will definitely be going back to try out more of their menu as it was extensive and at $10 a main, very affordable.

We dined in a group of 6 of us on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was fairly quiet apart from us. We all picked a different curry, had a few different entrée’s as well. Food portion was a little on the small side, but combined with the other dishes in an our group there was plenty to go round.

I checked their web site prior to going, and found several curries that were not on the menu in the restaurant. When I asked if I could have one of those instead they happily made it for me.

Overall, we all enjoyed our dishes, only just enough for a small lunch for one person was left.

The staff were friendly.

Four of us were here for dinner tonight (Wed 8th May) and had a good experience. We ordered a variety of entrees and mains and were all happy with the flavours and portion sizes. The staff were friendly and as a bonus we discovered when paying the bill that the mains were only $10 on Mon, Tues and Weds.
I didnt eat all of my main meal and it was parcelled up for me and they even included a portion of rice with it so I had a complete meal to take home. Parking was outside the door, but there is plenty of parking on the surrounding streets.

Went for dinner, ordered the butter chicken, and pakoras for entree, food was pretty good but nothing stand out for Indian, decent enough prices and didn’t have to wait long for food which was good. Staff were friendly when we walked in however one waiter seemed a bit incompetent. I would go there again for their lunch special but probably not for dinner.

We have been a regular customer here for some time, both takeaways and dining. Always really nice, tasty and spicy food. On our last visit we ordered a combination of food that is one of our regular orders. Everything was different, very sweet and bland. Are there new owners or a new cook??? Very disappointed.

This has to be our favourite Indian restaurant in Auckland. We are always greeted with a warm welcome when we arrive and the food always hits the spot. The depth of flavour to each dish definitely beats other places we have tried. If you are looking for well priced; delicious Indian cuisine then I would highly recommend you try Chaahat.

I have been to Chaahat a few times since it opened. I have had a great experience each time. The food is delicious. I have eaten Indian food in England and India and Chaahat’s food compares very well.
I recommend that you phone ahead with your booking, then sit back and enjoy the food and the decor.

Thank you, Rajini, our waitress, for good service. You were very attentive to ensuring we enjoyed our meal, and showed good humour! Complimentary Poppodoms were soon delivered to our table on our arrival. Helpful recommendations were made about complementary dishes for the table. The dishes were plentiful and good value. The rice unfortunately was not very hot. Notwithstanding this, we shall return.

The food was what you would expect from a typical Indian restaurant. However it was the service which was the major letdown. When the waiters phone starts ringing out loud as he is bringing drinks you know their standards can’t be very good! Overall I would not recommend going here!

I dropped into this restaurant with a friend who lives in the area. He recommended the food, which he normally orders for pick up. We were both surprised at the poor service, which immediately put us off our meals. The waiter was dismissive and rude. It was no surprise the place was nearly empty.

We both ordered a main each with a side to share. We enjoyed the food but the overall experience was let down by the service. I would not go back to this restaurant.

The restaurant has very nice decor and the food is very good.
We were a table of 4 and we had an appetizer, a main course, and dessert plus tea and it was only $35/head.
The staff were very pleasant.
We all enjoyed the food and the atmosphere and we would go back again.

Last nite our family visited Chaahat for the first time it was my Dads birthday, my dads friend told us about the place.

It was almost full on a Sunday nite HELLO!!

And we were about to leave but were approached by the staff and said if we wanted a table we might have to wait for a while and it was worth a wait, it was nice and warm inside, the furniture was amazing looks like custom made from India?

Lets get to the best part FOOOOOOOOOOOD, First we were given complimentary poppadoms and then we had Paneer Chilly Bombay style beautiful spicy the way we wanted and Malai Tikka just melted in the mouth just amazing, for mains we had Chicken Tikka Masala, Lamb Kadhi, Mushroom Masala all medium to hot and the beautiful Garlic Naans with Raita, mixed pickles and they gave us complimentary onion salad just like you get that in India……

The service was very good as well.

Over all experience was great, Thanks Ian and Sharon for the recommendation and thanks to the team at Chaahat keep up the good work. And we will be back soon.

This restaurant has a rating of five stars, I wonder why? The food we had was abysmal. We ordered a tandoori platter and the moment it arrived on our table we knew there was something awfully wrong.
The presentation, the taste, the freshness of the meat was as bad as it gets.

We eat a lot of Indian food and have never come across such a bad experience in Auckland. We chose Chaahat from these reviews and thought it pertinent to warn others – don’t go there!

The service was fine, and perhaps the curries are also fine but we were not inclined to try our luck (or waste our money). The starter should be an indication of the standard to come, and due to this we left. We didn’t want to cause too much fuss, so left peacefully but did advise the hosts. This however did not warrant any refund of the meal – something we expected out of due respect.
