We ordered a thali and a chicken rendang. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. Very filling portion size too. You don’t need a dessert but they do offer a couple of choices.

Has been here forever and great food. Not a place for ambience but the prices are reasonable. Very good roti.

This restaurant has maintained an excellent standard for years and years. Today was no exception. The super special lunch deal was certainly exceptionally good with a great variety of delicious items. Service was speedy, just what you need for lunch. Staff were extremely pleasant and...the lunch was excellent value.More

This spot has been an institution for years and is as good as ever. All 4 of us were very happy. Delicious dinner set had all the bases of an awesome combo for $19.95. Lamb succa was sublime. Fab roti. Enjoy!

I’m honestly shocked the reviews aren’t higher for this place, it definitely deserves it. Food is great and authentic, and service is good. It’s very uncommon in NZ that quality ingredients are used and not just using unhealthy/cheap ingredients, would definitely recommend

Excellent food, value for money & service. The chicken murtabak was perfect, the dosai impressive, the mee goreng generous.

This was my first time having a South Indian style meal and this place was worth going to. The non-veg thali was best. I will definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone, who wants to have south Indian style meals. :)

Lots of places are closed in Wellington, on Boxing Day, but Roti Chenai was all go. Really enjoyed the Southern Indian themed Dinner Special Thali.

Always fabulous food here. I normally get the beef dosa but tried lamb tonight which was equally delicious . The dosa is made from rice flour so great if like me you are intolerant to wheat. Quick no fuss service and a lovely gewurtraminer to...boot!More
