Tulsi Contemporary Indian Cuisine Information

In a time when Indian restaurants seem to dot the landscape, it is nice to know that some of them take their practice very seriously. Tulsi, on Wellington's Cuba St, is one of these restaurants. Tulsi with it's beautiful decor and friendly staff offer Indian Cuisine that is truly something special. A visit to Wellington or Christchurch without a visit to Tulsi is truly a mistake.

Tried the new Tulsi in Johnsonville on Sunday night. It was very quiet guaranteeing that we got attentive service and lightening fast service.
We opted for the banquet version of the menu as all four of us weren't too fussy. We each paid $27.50 for entrees and mains along with rice and plain naan.

The entrees consisted of onion bhaji, a spicy sausage (seekh kebab?)
and tandoori-ish garlic chicken along with a couple of sauces.
The plate of bhaji was more than enough for our table of four and was delicious.

For mains we got a bowl each of rogan josh, butter chicken, a balti and a navratan korma. I didn't try the butter chicken as I tend to like the hotter dishes and butter chicken is too mild and too full of cream and sugar for me. The rogan josh was good but lacked a little fresh zing. The balti was great and I could have had more of this dish. The vegetarian korma was rather average to me and was on a non vegetarian banquet menu (you have the choice of vegetarian or non vegetarian) so I didn't feel that it fit at all. Creamy cauliflower is just not my thing at an Indian restaurant.

The make over in Johnsonville is great and must have cost a wad of cash. The space was completely different from the two dollar shop that previously occupied the space.

Will I go there again?

I like the fitout and menu at Dawatt in Johnsonville, and the food their is more tasty to me, so if I was eating out, I would still go there.
If I was ordering takeaways, I can't go past Curry to go in the Newlands mall for fresh and tasty garlic naan and beef madras. Tastier curry for less money. My fav!
