This has to be the best Indian in Sydney. Small so you need to book, the set banquet menu is very good value, good byo, service is exceptional. Can't really fault this place at all, just wish was closer to my home!

First time at the brand new location in Cremorne (pity no one bothers to update the TA address details) - new venue is a bit up and down with stairs. Very limited menu for a Indian so choice is limited for our group of 4...More

Firstly, Nilgiri's has moved to 283 Military Road, Cremorne. They're not at St Leonard's any more. We made the mistake of going to the old address and was ultimately late to our reservation. BUT! The staff were absolutely brilliant in accommodating us still. And as...More

Nilgiri's restaurant, located in the restaurant hub of St Leonards, Sydney, takes you on a tour of ethnic Indian cuisine. But nilgiri's isn't just an award-winning restaurant....!
A cafe-style ambience at lunch and a more formal set-up at dinner create a quality dining experience, unlike any before.

Chef's Table is a unique dining experience as Ajoy personally cooks an 8 to 10 course degustation menu in front of your party: "it's like watching a piece of theatre only better as you eat it!". This is ideal for a special family event such as a golden wedding anniversary, as Ajoy can cook for up to 30 people.

With a menu that changes regularly, our weekday buffet is ideal for lunching with business colleagues.

Our Sunday buffet is unique as we feature a different menu every month to celebrate a different festival.

For quick meals in les than ten minutes all served with bread from our tandoor oven, our Tiffin Room is casual dining at its best.
