Went to the Elliot stables to look around and this place caught my eye, instead of eating in the food court, we sat on one of the tables inside the establishment, and of the 3 tables, 2 were booked, this good omen continued, nice beer, curry and roti, can't go wrong :)

It was raining hard so my husband and I decided to park the car and look for a place to eat at Elliot's Stables in the Auckland CBD. As we went around the stables, we were greeted by a friendly maitre'd of Ela. While we did not enter right away, we decided to give this place a go since the maitre'd was accommodating. We ordered the lamb biryani and the butter-less chicken together with a naan bread (cheese and garlic). We loved both dishes as they had depth of flavour. We could taste the freshness of the spices and even the meat that was used. Regarding the spice level, we were asked how we liked our level. We went for the medium (#3) which we thought was just ok but to be honest, it was not the kind of spice/heat we expected...it had much more heat. It was jarring at first but we kinda appreciated the level in the middle of the meal. Perhaps if one cannot tolerate heat/spice, but would like a little heat, go for #2. If we are in the area, we will definitely go back. PS: We complimented the young maitre'd to the owner as he was the convincing factor for us to try Ela.

The love of my life and I went here as pre-concert dinner for a romantic evening. The description and photos on their web page looked nice, and so we reserved a table.

When we came there, there was no table reserved - and the restaurant is actually in a foodcourt. We took it with humor - our first romantic dinner in a food court, but... They later said they did not know how to tell people that they are in a foodcourt - let me help with that. A sentence like this on your webpage might help: "We are located in a foodcourt".

We ordered mango mojitos that were pretty tasteless, but the food was really, really good (but too much :-( ). We had the masala dosa, lamb shank curry, and kerala beef, and all were delicious, and the spiciness just as we hoped for. The dosa was less crisp than the ones we got in india, but tasted delicious.

So the food was good, the ambience not so much - we won't be back.
