Delicious Authentic and Fresh Indian Cuisine

One of our favourite Indian Restaurants. Inder Jaiswal has been serving the Gold Coast for over 20 years, and his Indian recipes are famous. We especially love the tandoori sampler entree, and his butter chicken is hard to resist. Even his fluffy, light rice is incredible. The service is always... read more

This is truly the best Indian food in Australia. We have travelled around the world and this is one of the best. Food and service is exceptional whether its dining in with family and friends and kids or grabbing a take away on my way home.

I have been visiting the Gold Coast for many years and after trying many indian restaurants, this is the only one worth visiting! Inder and his team at the Indian cafe offer authentic indian cuisine at good prices. The flavours are amazing and the variety is good, I always love coming back, nestled in a cosy corner next to noodle... More

Great Indian food and exceptional service. This is a regular eating place for our family and the food and service are great. The best Indian by far on the Gold Coast. Try it - you won't be disappointed :)

The chef looks experienced and you can tell by the quality of the food. But the portions are too small. an $19 curry should have more than 7 small pieces of chicken. Naan also expensive and small. If value isn't important to you then it's a nice place to eat.

This restaurant serves fantastic authentic Indian food the best you can get on the Gold Coast. Service is friendly. Not in the fanciest if locations but well worth the visit.

We usually go to another local Indian restaurant but tried The Indian as an alternative. The food and service were great. Very efficient. What impressed me was that the owner came around to each table to ask how we were finding the meal - this is unusual now days so it was much appreciated. Also there were a number of... More

Great Indian restaurant. Food awesome and well priced for quality Indian food and good servings. Staff nothing is too much trouble the atmosphere is very relaxed and low key.
