The Deccan Indian Restaurant & Bar

If you have the time, we have the taste

As a New Zealander with South Indian heritage it was always a challenge to find an authentic Indian food joint growing up, although the Indian restaurant scene has grown a lot over the years I still feel chef’s in Auckland hold back on the spices. The Deccan Indian Restaurant is our take on authentic Indian food with a good range of wine and drinks. We cover dishes from all over India and specialise in Andhra cuisine, a southern state that is very much invested in its spices, red and green chilies. We use fresh produce, poultry, meat and spices in our cooking. We stay away from food colouring and other artificial additives. We do not shy away from our spices and we blend together array of ingredients to give our diners the best Indian experience. You will definitely find a lot of familiar names on our menu but we deliver taste that is entirely different to what you are normally used to as a diner in Auckland.

In early 2018 we decided to give this idea a go, we renovated this space in the heart of Auckland city (Morningside) and made way to The Deccan Indian Restaurant & Bar in July 2018. We have attempted to tick a few boxes like authentic taste, convenient location, ambiance, drinks & parking (yes you do not have to worry about going over the parking limit as we have plenty of basement parking). So, if you have the time to sit down and enjoy, we have the taste. This is what some of our patrons have to say about us.

Great food, amazing service. I absolutely love that they use paper bags and bio degradable containers for the curry.

The food here is amazing! You do not get this depth of flavor at other places. Easily the best Indian restaurant we have been to in a long long time. The service is exceptional and the portions are generous. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a meal. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Auckland.

Be worth flying from Sydney to eat here! Best spinach daal I’ve ever had, and the roti bread too. On top of that, great service. If you’re in the area and want great Indian food, be sure to try here first.

Great taste, fantastic service and most of all, bang for the buck! I had lollipop chicken, matar aloo, palak paneer and garlic naan. The lollipop chicken was very tender yet crispy fried. The matar aloo and palak paneer came in massive bowls (almost enough to feed 3-4 even) and tasted like authentic Indian home cooking. There were so much food that I needed to take two containers home!

There are many Indian restaurants in Auckland, but this one gives you different dishes from all over India. The taste of the food is amazing, every dish is cooked in authentic way, which can be experienced easily. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for Indian food lovers.
