Indian with Flair

Gracious and courteous staff tended to us throughout our meal but not hovering - the dishes came in a timely manner and were cleared in the same way. At no way did we feel rushed. We chose to have condiments & poppadams with our drinks instead of entrees and they gave us a taste of the meal to... read more

This restaurant has become a firm family favourite. We came here most recently in late December 2015 for a family meal with our two teenage sons and were not disappointed. The food is absolutely yummy and the staff are very attentive and courteous. One of my boys is coeliac and there are many gluten free dishes available for him to... More

Plenty of easy off street parking close to the restaurant. Set in a garden landscape, a large restaurant bar area, nice decor, good atmosphere, spaced tables, ample personal space. This restaurant features many Northern India dishes which we were keen to try. Prior to the entrees we were provided with papadums and a dips platter, very tasty, highly recommended. The... More

Took the family here based on some of the excellent reviews for this restaurant and wasn't disappointed. Complex flavours and a step up from the normal Indian restaurant. We had Urban Tadka Mixed Sampler as an entree and Patiala ka Murgh Saag (chicken pieces cooked with fenugreek and English spinach), Malai Kofta, and Vasat Kunj ke Aalo Baigan Chatpate (diced...

A top notch place that seems to get everything right. The location although just off a main highway is set amongst trees in a tranquil setting. The staff service is great and attentive. Food is great tasting authentic Indian cuisine that allows spices to come through the food to bring new levels to the Indian food than you would usually... More

Another birthday dinner and the food was excellent (as it was on our previous visits). Service is also good. Air con was a little cool, and I found out when we left that they would have altered the setting if I'd asked. Lighting is still frustratingly low, especially when looking through menu. But these are very minor things that do... More

Urban Tadka claims on its website to have been voted Australia's best Indian restaurant. I was therefore expecting something rather special and unfortunately I was a little disappointed. The food was excellent (if a little pricey) but I was disappointed with the service, which was lacking in warmth. Additionally, we were asked whether we wanted sauces with our poppadoms (of... More

Can't add much to what other diners have said: it is noisy, the service is a bit slow, it has a very nice ambience and the food is excellent particularly the cauliflower and potato curry. We didn't think it expensive.
