Our Mantra
Authentic Quality Ingredients

3Nutmegs is a result of the culmination of Indian food with the astute sense of world food demand. We are driven by the discerning customers who are at the forefront of the food revolution that is unfolding in front of us in these exciting times for the food industry in general.

Pepper ramikan

Delicious herbs can take a dish from good to great! Fresh and tasty herbs have the ability to elevate a meal to the next level,  with a hit of freshness just before serving, or adding a zest of the delicious depth of flavour throughout a dish.

Chilli powder ramikan

Fresh & Nutritious food is the essence of human health. Hence, we prepare fresh vegetables purchased daily in the morning and cooked by the evening. That's home cooking equivalent in a restaurant setting.

Curry powder ramekin

Today, customers are just not looking for empty calories to eat as was the case in the last decade from the giants of the fast-food industry. Our customers are looking for a sweet & rewarding combination of healthy nutrition & culinary taste.

Top Indian Restaurant in Auckland

We weren’t planning on eating this evening out but passed this place and just had to try it out. We are so glad we did. The ambience was perfect and the food was delicious. We recommend the pakora starters - wow. We are local so will definitely be back soon.

For mains we had a lamb dish and a chicken dish - both cooked to perfection.

The scenery, atmosphere, food and staff were absolutely wonderful. We all had the mushroom Risotto as an appetizer and it was among the best I've ever had.
