Recommended to us by several people and just near our hotel, Carlton curry house was a great discovery. The food was as good as any Indian food we have had, with generous portions and beautifully presented. Staff could not have been any more helpful or friendly or attentive. Glad we booked, because even though a Friday night, it was packed!... More

Maybe I visited on a bad night, but this restaurant did not seem to live up to its other reviews. The food was OK (the Burmese duck curry was interesting and unusual), but nothing special really - the butter chicken was very average. I found it on the expensive side for what it was. The service was OK, although perhaps... More

Found this great place by checking TripAdvisor and the beaming reviews were not wrong. Staff were very polite and accommodating, all the food was fresh and tasty. Very reasonably priced for such beautiful food. We'll definitely be coming back to the Carlton Curry House!

We looked up Trip Advisor for a good authentic Indian Curry restaurant and Carlton Curry House in Lygon st Carlton was the one we booked. The food was so good and the flavors come out with every mouthful. The tandoori fish was so flavorsome and soft, the chicken ticka malai was amazing and the paneer kofta were so soft it... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Melbourne, and after consulting Trip Advisor, saw this highly rated restaurant very close to where we were staying at the Ibis melbourne hotel. Not being able to decide what we wanted to eat, my gf and I ordered the 'Carlton deluxe banquet'. There was an option to have the 'Carlton curry Classic... More

I do like a nice curry and this little place is just a curry lovers dream. We ordered masala and the dahl and mine was delicious, not sure about the chicken but the hubby loved it. You can also get takeout here which we have been doing since and it always seems to taste just as good. If you like... More

This was a great place for a tasty Indian dinner at a reasonable price. Unfortunately the service was a bit average, and the ambiance was lacking (there wasn't even music playing). But if you're looking for decent takeaways or a casual night out this would be an option.

I have been coming here for years and have loved it. New owners, and things aren't looking good. Disinterested service, food slow to come out, and no interaction with customers by new owners. To top it off, numbers on the tables a la coffee shop,... Horrible . I hope they can lift their game before they slide down the rating.... More
