Dated decor but flavoursome food

My husband, daughter and I ate there for dinner. I was hesitant at first because there was noone else there. I like bustling restaurants as I always take this as meaning it's popular and good. The place could do with a good scrub and decor update and I think they could improve the vibe with some... read more

We went to this restaurant after checking reviews on Tripadvisor and thought to have Bangladeshi cousin there but actually this is an Indian restaurant. They served chicken biriyani which was defrosted and rice was under cook. Prawn item was served freshly cooked and for that we only manage to finish our food. Waiters were well mannered. Not recommended if someone... More

Don't need fancy! Just want good food. Very basic SMALL restaurant. No heating in winter, so I'm thinking no cooling in summer. Price & Value . Makes up for it.

This is a very unassuming place. From the outside, one would be forgiven for passing it by, but once confronted with the generous dishes of authentic food, you will sing its joy for a long time. Very reasonable and very palatable. I've been twice this week and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Not your average Indian/Australian experience.

Its a small place, not very impressive from outside. But once you enter, you find very simple people serving you good food - mind you the food here is a little spicy so decide accordingly. All in all, small little place in cbd mainly to help me satisfy my cravings for home made roti / chappati :)

Despite the ordinary exterior, this restaurant was a delightful find. I love samosas and these were the best I've had in Australia. The pastry was very light and not oily, with the vegetable mix just perfectly spicy. The dahl was creamy and delicious. I was the only person there on a Saturday night just before a show at Her Majesty's... More

This is the one and only Bangladeshi restaurant in Melbourne, Try their Biryani very good. Bangladeshi Biryani might look similar to Indian Biryani but they taste different after a long search finally I found some thing close to Biryani in Melbourne.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
