My first time was on Valentine's day. After that, I have been there with my partner 6 times already! I love their curry, rice and especially the naan bread because is FRESH and CRISPIES! Either way lunch or dinner, I had good experiences.

Dropped in for lunch on a Sunday. We were quickly accommodated and had a drink while we looked over the menu. We ordered three entrees between us and a salad each. The food was delicious, plentiful for entree size and the salad was great. The atmosphere was nothing to write home about, but for a quick and cheerful most adequate,... More

Was curious about this place so I went for lunch. The deal was definitely appealing at $10 for curry, naan, and rice. Curry was great but unfortunately the rice was very dry and not fresh which spoilt the curry.

Busy when we arrived, and our pakora starter arrived fairly quickly( delicious). The main course took a long time, had we not already had our entree we probably would have left. I think they might have forgotten. However when it arrived it was very good. We would go back again, to give them a second chance to bring the food... More

I haven't eaten in the restaurant yet, but I have ordered to take away multiple times and have never been disappointed. The wait time for when the meal will be ready to pick up is always spot on. The price is pretty cheap compared to other Indian Restaurants around the area which I love - will always go here when... More

This review is about the Bolliwood Indian restaurant in Howick. Very good value (sometimes $10 for lunch! Delicious Indian cuisine. When they have specials on it can be a very long wait though. Very enjoyable. Lovely staff.

We drifted into this place because the restaurant that we were going for our office lunch were closed that day (should have made a booking!). Anyway, this place turned out to be quite an acceptable replacement. The menu is pretty standard northern Indian and as we pleasantly found out, they had a lunch special. The food is equally standard Indian,... More

The overall experience was good at Bolliwood. Meals were of a decent size (as most Indian restaurants are) and very tasty. VERY large menu catering for any taste including Indo-Chinese and even some South African dishes. This did make it a bit hard to make decisions! Good problem to have though. Managed to get an outside seat with a large... More
