Great atmosphere and good food. Our group of three all tried different dishes and then shared because they were all good. Great naan too.

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.

Great service and atmosphere. Food came out quickly and I highly recommend the non vegetarian platter and the pasanda chicken. Naan bread was also delicious and the serving sizes are very generous.

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 had a great time at Ammu last night. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious!!

We shared the non vegetarian platter and onion bhaji to start as with a curry and garlic naan foe the main.

The portions were generous and we were stuffed full by the end of our meal.

Highly reccomend!

We now have a new favourite Indian restaurant. We got the sampler platter to start which was generous and had great flavor and variety. Almost full after that, we dived into the mains. Such great flavor at the perfect heat and a generous amount of naan bread, we had to take away the leftovers to enjoy the next day which was just as good. The service was fast and we were asked after every course if the food was ok. The staff were very friendly and generally passionate about delivering great food. Great place and food.

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!

Excellent vege platter followed by Manchurian chicken and pepper lamb. Both mains were ordered kiwi hot so were an enjoyable challenge for myself and Thai partner. All dishes were cooked very well and not oily at all. Rice was perfect. Ordered garlic cheese naans which arrived piping hot and were also fluffy and soft. Look forward to our next meal in the near future.
