Reviewed July 17, 2020

This was my first visit to the venue. I booked via The Fork, and promptly seated on arrival to the venue. I ordered a signature nepalese goat curry, medium spice. The curry was beautifully divine, and goat was fall off the bone, with a good...kick of spice (without watery eyes). On the side, I had a generous serving of mango chutney, flaky garlic paratha, and roti. I ate enough for two, and unable to fill dessert in at the venue, I opted to take home the gulab jamun which was perfectly sweet and delicious. Excellent quality curry in the heart of Melbourne.More

After having visited Nirankar we personally feel it's the most underrated restaurant that has not received the kind of attention it deserve. It's way better than many (So Called) well known restaurants What also is quite interesting about this restaurant is they do Nepalese Cuisine...as well. Ordered Lamb Cutlet, Squid Masala, Chilly Chicken, lamb Madras, Phelwa (Nepalese Fish Curry), Rice And Roti Basket. Lamb Cutlets were simply Out Of This World. But overall, everything we ordered was amazing. No complains at all. Service was very very very good and the pricing wasn't too bad too. Definitely returning.More

A week in Melbourne. Our first visit. We spent the first three nights trawling the City Centre to find something worth eating. We didn't find anywhere. Frustration on frustration BUT on our nightly trawl we stumbled on NIRANKAR and our need to trawl the streets...ended. Splendid curries, cooked with flavour and delicacy. Fantastic staff too. Friendly, helpful and generous. If you find you are fed up with trawling the streets in search of exceptional food on offer - all at good value - please take heed of this review!More

We dined here with friends and enjoyed a long lunch on a Wednesday. We were never hurried or pushed. The staff are accommodating and discreet and the food is delicious. The menu offers an array of banquets and the menu is extensive. Gluten free and...vegetarian diners are well catered for here. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Nirankar nor coming back for more!More

I'm a brit, and loved the "National Dish of England" description next to "Chicken Tikka Masala" !! Australians don't seem to have much choice for a good curry. This one was excellent (though my compatriot and I stuck with trad dishes, rather than the Nepalese...also on offer). Slightly different take on a Korma, with lots of pistachio, but it was very nice. Butter Chicken was gorgeous and the Lamb Rogan had lovely meat (sometimes a risk with lamb). Dishes were deeper than I thought too!!! Had a nice bottle of Oz Reisling too. I'd defo go back, and next time will venture to try something new.More
