18 Reviews for Chaahat Indian Cuisine
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 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.
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.
I recommend that you phone ahead with your booking, then sit back and enjoy the food and the decor.
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.
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.
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.
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.
