Auckland Thursday Night Curry

Celebrating 22 Years - July 2002 - 2024

When and Where

Date: 18 July 2024

Time: 7pm

Venue: Joshi Indian Restaurant, Grafton, Auckland.

Auckland Thursday Night Curry is held every 2nd Thursday. Restaurant changes each time, usually somewhere in central Auckland (eg Mt Eden, Parnell, Ponsonby). We return to our favourite locations often.

Anyone is welcome to attend, especially if you agree to the AUP aka "rules". We usually get around 6 to a dozen each time. Most of the regulars work in IT, especially within internet network operations and bring their friends and/or partners along. Average price of each meal has been approx $26 recently, with a range of $25-$35.

The first Auckland Thursday Night Curry was on 4 July 2002 at Shahi Cafe Herne Bay, Auckland. We celebrated our 8th anniversary on 8 July 2010 at Simla, Mt Eden, Auckland.

There are some rules to ThursdayNightCurry.

We really need an idea of numbers so we can inform the restaurant. If you're coming, please email let Lin Nah know.


Last curry before Covid level 4 shutdown was on 19 March 2020. There was no curry during (2,16,30) April and 14 May 2020.
