Gourmet Takeout Food Awards NZ Herald review 28 Sep 06
- Finding great takeout food is no longer a chore. Auckland is full of excellent places offering quick, healthy fare. Here are the winners of Viva's annual Gourmet Takeout Food Awards:
BEST INDIAN - Satya
At Viva we like to discover new and exciting places but try as we might we have never found a better Indian takeout than Satya. It won our inaugural awards in 2003 and has featured on our winner's list ever since. The food is fresh, flavours authentic, the service fast and friendly and the menu (Southern-Indian-inspired which means the dishes are healthier and lighter) is extensive - there are 40 entrees and main dishes.
Our pick: dahi puri (crisp little squares with a topping of potato, yoghurt, spices and tamarind), chicken tikka masala, prawn maharaja curry and mango chicken.
Three Star Rating - NZ Herald review 01.10.2003
- Padma and Swamy's homely cafe on an unwelcoming city highway specialises in South Indian food, said to be healthier, lighter and more original than other Indian cuisine. Much of it is street food; a great deal is vegan or vegetarian; all of it is the genuine article because Padma cooks as she would at home. Delicious, ridiculously economical, endlessly fascinating.
SUNDAY STAR TIMES 11 May 2003, reviewer Geraldine Johns
- This unprepossessing venue has been keeping its converts content for the past three years, but to my shame has only just come to my attention.
- You could not ask for a place of lesser pretensions that purveyed more honest tastes than Satya. There is a swag of other Indian restaurants about town and I have paid homage to at least one. The thing that sets Satya apart from any other pretenders is its honesty and simplicity and dedication to flavour above all else.
Metro Guide November 2003
- It might lack a salubrious address, but Satya's food is nothing short of magnificent. South Indian food is light, producing complex, spiced curries with a vegetarian bias. We particularly loved the spinach paneer, a dark green curry with luscious chunks of cottage cheese, and the Murg Badami, whose chicken is infused with garlic, ginger and chilli.
- Brightly-coloured saris hang from the ceiling and rich pink walls give a camivalesque feel; there's Kingfisher beer, and, best of all, it's dirt, dirt cheap.
When I personally visited, I enjoyed Dahi Puri for entree. Each of the 6 pieces fitted comfortably into my mouth filling my tastebuds with sweet, sour, curry and yoghurt flavours. Mmmm. Next was an exquisitely tender Lamb Vindaloo. Gulab Jamoon with Ice cream finished off a lovely evening. But what wouldn't be a lovely evening being out with my beautiful wife.
South Indian food preparation is a very complex and laborous process. It is believed that one can only experience the peak of spicy cuisine through South Indian Dishes.
