Indian Food Walk
"A wonderful immersion into Indian food culture. Amazing storytelling."
Experience the street food delights of India right here in Auckland. Join me, Indian food writer, Perzen Patel, on a food walk in Sandringham Road.
If you're a fan of Indian food but always stick to known favourites, this walk is for you.
Over the course of three hours, you'll eat eight (or more!) dishes and get a glimpse of Indian food from four different states. This leisurely experience blends personal stories and Indian food history to showcase India's diverse flavours. We'll also stop at a local Indian shop where you can stock up on snacks, spices or lentils.
"I felt like we had gone to a different country for a night. We had a great time experiencing food we would have never thought to order."
PLEASE READ: The walk takes place in the evening from 1745 hours and takes 2.5-3 hours to complete. The tour requires a minimum of six people to proceed. We reserve the right to cancel the tour 48 hours prior if the tour minimum is not met and provide a full refund or a suitable alternative tour date.
Be prepared to leave full to the brim with food and local advice on what and where to eat the next time you bring your friends to Sandringham. It's the perfect outing with a group of friends or a fun date night.

Just finished this walk. What a fabulous evening, the food was great, Perzen was a great guide, and the promised rain held off. I enjoyed the food, the company, the commentary, everything really. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Indian cuisine, and to anyone wanting to be more adventurous than butter chicken.
We joined Perzen last Saturday night. We tried many different dishes at different places in Sandringham and heard the stories about each dish. Perzen is friendly and relaxed. A born guide. I can't tolerate hot spicy food but I was able to eat each dish. All very tasty and I now have a long list of new Indian dishes I know I like. Many thanks Perzen.
We joined Perzen on her Sandringham Indian walking food experience. Wow, what a fantastic tour. We both had the opportunity to sample foods from different regions that we’ve never tried before, including Indian Street Food. Perzen was very knowledgeable, not too much walking, but plenty of eating. Highly recommend.
