Bolliwood (Ponsonby) is the most popular Indian restaurant located in Ponsonby.
Indian food is a fabulous combination of rich creamy curries with fluffy rice and tasty breads. The cuisine is as varied as India's vast terrain and its people. This is complemented by chutney and pickle dishes which are the perfect and indispensable accompaniments to the meal.
To most, Indian food means a hot chilli base curries, but this is a great misconception. Generally, the Northern dishes are mild and creamy e.g. Butter Chicken, Kormas and Tandoori meals which are ideal for the first time Indian experience or for children.
The Southern dishes come from the hotter parts of India, where the dishes are chili based and have heavier spicing, as they were originally used to preserve food in the hot climate. Southern dishes include the perspirational Vindaloos and the Madras curries.
An ideal introduction to the Indian meals is the Banquet style meal. This allows you to sample a selection of food with varying spices and flavours. There are three different entrees and four main meals with rice, breads and accompaniments.
Indian cuisine is best accompanied by rice, bread and side dishes e.g. Raita, Salad, Chutney and Pickles. Traditionally all of our meals are placed in the centre of the table to allow each guest to share the different and varying taste of each dish.
Note that most of our meals can be made MILD, Medium or Hot taste. The only exceptions are the Vindaloos which traditionally come out Hot.
Should you require any assistance in choosing the right dish for your taste buds, our staff would be happy to assist.
We hope you will enjoy your dining experience at the Palace of India and will return to dine with us again in the future.

Disappointing. Curries were average and short on meat. I guess their mid-week specials are cheap for a reason. Our waiter was loud and constantly in your face.

Feel like a curry but sick of the ordinary curry experience. Thenj Bollywood is the place for you. They have an array of dishes and the staff are more then happy to recommend and inform of the different tastes. The dishes are all made to order as well and you can choose from mild- to fire buring hot! The curries are creamy and my tastebuds loved all the different flavours. Try the melt in your mouth lamb korma and the teh tandoori platter. Delicious!
