They got the cliched butter chicken and usual known NORTH INDIAN food which Aussie locals have the impression of India in the name of North Indian cuisine. I burnt a hole on my pocket and wasted my health.

We had good expectations about the restaurant as we had read good reviews prior to booking. We were celebrating a birthday so we had a party of around 10. When we got there the restaurant was full and bustling. Unfortunately it all went downhill from there. Despite repeatedly asking, they took almost 40 min to take our order. They took... More

The spicy panner starter was the star of the show for me at Niranker.. It was tasty. I followed that up with a standard chicken madras curry dish which was good. All washed down with cool refreshing kingfisher.. It never blew me away, but there was nothing really wrong with what I was served. My wife wasnt so lucky.. Her... More

My friend and I were visiting Melbourne as backpackers early February 2015 and visited this restaurant one evening as we had a notion for Indian cuisine. The venue is large and spacious with wonderful decor and good ambience. It wasn't very busy on this occasion so we got plenty of attention from the staff who were very friendly. We ordered... More

did a group lunch .. They seemed very busy due to a kids birthday party which meant digesting an overdose of loud music. Food was decent enough and nothing particularly fantastic. sans the loud volume , I believe we'd enjoyed the meal better. The wait staff did best possible to cope.

Had been with group for both lunch and dinner. Though food was tasty they found it difficult to manage the group. Overall was a nice experience though not over the top but definitely something good at cbd for lunch.
