Great indian food, well priced and speedy service. Not since leaving Melbourne two years ago have we had good butter chicken. Well done will come back.

As out-of-towners, we usually have our family get-togethers at Indian Mehfil. Everything about them is reliable. A good variety of tastes and flavours, plentiful food, good service, plenty of dining space, a comfortable setting, lots of local parking. The Indian Mehfil is our go-to Ipswich...restaurant.More

We ordered a $58 meal which includes Mango Lassi but when we got our food it wasn't even in there, worst of all the food tasted incredibly average, not what I expected from this restaurant.More

From the moment we went in to claim our booking, it was not a pleasant experience. We were ignored after being seated- no one came to take a drink order or a food order until summoned after 15 minutes, then they went off to get...table water before taking our order. We waited 40 minutes after that for entrée and over an hour for mains which might have been nice if they weren't cold. Waiter did not know which dish was which and gave vegetarian meal to wrong person even though we told him who had ordered what. We were not offered another drink and again had to summon someone, both times we had to ask where our drinks were. People at one table who arrived us were served before us and another table who arrived at least half an hour after us got their food at about the same time as us. We noticed a steady stream of take away or delivery services which seemed to take priority. They did apologise and give us 10% off the bill but there are a few other Indian restaurants in town which I would go to before coming back here.More

North Indian styled cuisine for the Australian palate - a good tasty version of what we expect and enjoy here. The portions are generous, the service excellent, and the dining room area’s high ceilings and tasteful decor and furnishings make it a lovely dinner spot....There’s outside tables on the adjacent mall area too.More

Good food, friendly staff. Quaint restaurant in old Heritage building tastefully decorated with Indian theme inside. Had Lamb Korma will try with chicken next time, great flavour.

Dined on a Sunday night as a walk-in, and the restaurant was fairly busy. Tasty food at a reasonable price and excellent, attentive service.

Thank you very much for your lovely review and we look forward to serving you again with best possible service and meal.

The food was absolutely disgusting. I ordered the Butter Chicken Curry and it was bland, full of bones and tasteless. They have lunch specials however the waiter discourages you from ordering them and prefers if you order from the full menu. For $32.00 for one...dish with a spoonful of rice and 2 drinks is a joke. The food was also cold and it was spilt all over the table when served. I don’t know how this establishment has so good reviews, they must be paid reviews for sure. The staff do not serve with a smile either. Will definitely not be returning here again.More

The Butter Chicken and the Methi Malai are our favourite dishes, but I have never heard a bad word about any of their dishes. Great service and a community minded business.
