Bolliwood, Browns Bay

I've always loved Bolliwood for its affordable yet tasty Indian food, and it's excellent lunch deals! When I worked and lived in the city many years ago, I would frequent the branch in Ponsonby for my Friday lunch treat, and we were excited to find that there are two Bolliwood restaurants relatively close to where we live on the North Shore of Auckland - one in Brown's Bay (which is where we dined for this review), and another in Takapuna.

I was happy to learn that the lunch deal still exists, and this my foodie friends, is so worth the money. For just $10, you can have any curry on the menu and it comes with a portion of rice, naan bread, and your choice of soft drinks. And for a small top-up, you can have the garlic or cheese naan instead, and change your soft drinks to the house beer or wine for an additional $4.

Vegetable Korma 
The Butter Chicken is my go-to here. I love this creamy, tangy, delicious curry that comes with plenty of chicken pieces and even more sauce to soak up your naan bread with. The Vegetable Korma that The Husband ordered was chock-full of ingredients, and made for an extremely tasty and (sort of) healthy lunch!

Over the years, we've tried plenty of the other curries on the menu and have yet to be disappointed by any. The decor isn't cutting edge and the venue is certainly not the most sophisticated I've seen, but it is welcoming, the staff are friendly, the food is good, and in a city where dining out can easily break the bank, you certainly get your value for money here at Bolliwood.
