A mixture of Italian and Indian flavours, but the waitress was VERY helpful, directing us to suitable dishes for our preferences. We all liked what we ordered. Clean tidy decor.

Whether visiting or a local you have to try Digress. Spectacular menu that is different to the norm without being crazy. The tastes are really splendid and the service first class. With all that said, Digress is not over priced and the atmosphere is wonderful.

An infusion of Indian and Italian. It sounds scary...... but fear not....... it's TOTALLY worth the risk!! Tonight was my second venture into Digress....and i couldn't wait to see what else it had in store for me.

My first venture into Digress saw me attempt the Fetta Naan for entree and the Tandoori Chicken Penne for my main. It was absolutely fabulous!

Tonight i was going all out. Our waitress was kind enough to make suggestions based on my love of spice, and my friends dislike of spice.

We chose to go with all of the waitresses suggestions. Entree was the Cheese and Oregano Naan, main was the Chilli Chicken Fusilli (and it provided just the perfect amount of spicyness), and then dessert was the Gulab Jamun with Gelato (golden fried dumplings in a rose syrup with pistachio flavoured gelato). All up we spent $40 each for our meals which also covered a beer as well. We left as two very full, and very happy customers.

Could not recommend it highly enough!

Will DEFINATELY be coming back again!

My brother and I surprised my sister in Canberra by going from Melbourne and Sydney. After much perusal Digress looked different, so we tried it. We booked a table for 6. We all had different dishes and tried each others. The food was definitely different, and we will most definitely go back there to try out more. Sarah and her sister were fantastic. The service was really great too. My sister got Kulfi with sparklers on as her special treat, which I never asked for. Certainly a restaurant to try for all you foodies. Also I have been to Indian Affair which has really great Indian food.
