Great food

Had a banquet here for a birthday celebration. Great food. The portions were very generous, so much that we couldn't manage to eat it all. The staff were very attentive. Will definitely return.

My husband and I had a weekend in Melbourne for a gig, and on our second night and we really fancied Indian for dinner, the Indian restaurant in our little country town isn't that great and we were keen to find a restaurant which served decent food. And guess what? We found this place! The service was impeccable, the waiters... More

By far the best Indian I've ever had. Highly recommend the sizzling mushrooms for entree. I went with colleagues and 3 of us had different hot masalas which we all raved about. Service was very friendly and efficient while the venue was cozy on a cold Melbourne night. Keep up the good work you Indians, I will be back !

Great authentic Indian food here. Very good selection and cooked to your desired heat tolerance. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. I would recommend this restaurant - I have been both at night and during the day.

Three of us came here after office drinks and a trip to a pub. We had a very good meal, good tandoori starters, plentiful and spicy mains, and one of the better daals I have in some time. The service was good, and we enjoyed the experience, and paid what we felt was a very fair price for the meal.... More

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
