Good quality for a reasonable price

Having eaten at both Hanmer and Edgeware locations, Coriander's serves up consistently good curries, along with good service.

Corianders is part of a chain of Indian restaurants. We dined here with a booking for two at the end of January and had a great experience. We shared a plate of samosas to start with a glass of good quality wine. S had a curry and I ordered the Tandoori hot plate. That was delicious and huge! Pieces of... More

We were looking for a fast and easy meal the night we ate at Corianders, and it was both those things. The place smelled great, and service was prompt and friendly on a quiet evening, but there was a disconcerting big food splatter on the wall next to my seat and the waitress pushed us to order starters as well...

Not the best curry I've ever had but certainly filled a gap after a day at the pools. The curry tasted very salty and like it was missing some flavours- it lacked depth. Perhaps the sauce was made with a bit too much cream and salt on this occasion. Prices are a little bit higher than what I would usually... More

The food was cooked to perfection and the wait time was short. The staff were very friendly and obliging. The decor is modern and the chairs are very comfortable.

Faced with the alarming choice of two curry houses in Hanmer Springs we choose Coriander, due to the delicious smells emanating from inside. The meal was ready for us well within the specified twenty minutes. The best item we chose was the mixed vegetarian platter, followed by the Paneer entree. Quantities were so good, we finished them the next day.... More

The food was decent with good portions of chutneys. Unfortunately the pappadums are those tiny spicy ones, not the large plain fresh ones Brits are used to, so more chutney than there is pappadum. Main Dupiaza dish was very hot, but tasty. Would have ordered a starter but prices put us off. Food costs roughly double what it would in... More
