Fabulous food and service, with all the usual selections plus lots of different meals to chose from. It was a great opportunity for the adults to try something and we werent disappointed, while the kids stuck to their favourites. Will definately be back and highly recommend.

We weren't sure about dining here, but we will definitely be back! The service was incredible, they were always available but not pestering us.

The food itself is to die for, so full of flavour and decent portion sizes.

We will definitely be back again and have already recommended them to a friend in the area.

There is not one single complaint I have!

Still my favourite restaurant but they forgot to write down or give us our breads, but food was so good I was so sad I couldn’t take the extras away.

Amazing food. They do a butter paneer (butter chicken but vegetarian style) service staff were lovely, little outdated and a child running around yelling, she was cute and came up to our table showing us a YouTube video and was swiftly taken away.. bless her. First time having a naan with cheese on top that wasn’t melted, nevertheless it was delicious. Highlight was the giant pancake (dosa) my grandfather ordered. Massive big crepe style that took off half the table and made us laugh our heads off. Will eat again for sure.

Food of extremely high quality as usual. Service was not quite up to the usual high standard, maybe because they were a little busy. Still very polite but could have done with more staff or more highly motivated staff.

Ammu is excellent. It is the best Indian food in Upper Hutt. I had the Goan Fish Curry and it was delicious. Such a wonderful balance of flavours and perfectly spicy (just the way I like it). The staff are wonderful too.
There are so many Indian restaurants to choose from in Upper Hutt but really, if you want the best curry in Upper Hutt, just go straight to Ammu!

I took my daughter and son-in-law from England. We all had a great time, and son-in-law said he would definitely go again - high praise indeed from a lad from Birmingham! Food was excellent (try the Chicken Lollipops for starter) and service with a real smile.

3 of us dined there on a Saturday evening. The food came out reasonably quick and the service was good too. Our only criticism was one of our group of 3 found the meal was over seasoned (salty) but that could have been just that particular dish. I would definitely go back again.

The staff were welcoming and friendly. The aroma of the food made your mouth water and the spices were a culinary delight .. bringing the odd tear or two to your eye. Well worth the experience.

Great service and a very nice menu too. Our meals were all yummy. Highly recommend.

My husband and I came here with two other Malyalee friends (South Indians).

What an evening and what a culinary experience. Excellent dining .

We shared Chettinadu Chicken, Goat Curry Masala with Bone, Mangalore Fish Curry and Prawns Malabari. Each dish was prepared to perfection and had its own unique texture/gravy and spices blend. The garlic naans were some of the best naans we have had in Wellington and a perfect accompaniment to the main courses. The servings were generous and we struggled to finish the rich mango kulfis (we ordered 2 and shared).

All of us were stunned to discover a restaurant of this calibre quietly occupying a street in Upper Hutt. Ammu deserves to be patronised by all gourmet food enthusiasts. My husband and I dine out all the time. This chef was right up there amongst the best Wellington has to offer. We will be back with our big group. Well done Ammu.

Ambience: Was very cosy next to the fireplace.
Service: Was good.

We very much enjoyed our meal here at Ammu last night. Staff were very attentive to us, and our 2 small children. The food was amazing, and portion sizes were huge! My only regret is that we were unable to finish it all.
