Description: Bollywood Masala Kingston has now been open for a year. In that time, we have won the prestigious Restaurant and Catering Best Indian/sub-continent ACT Award 2013. This proves that our award winning effort at Dickson has been successfully transferred to our Kingston restaurant. We are not a franchise and Arjan and his team personalise each establishment to suit our customers needs and to continuously improve given the regular feedback we get and appreciate and learn from.Many customers continue to describe us as the best Indian restaurant in Canberra; better than the food they've tasted in India! Such compliments don't make us complacent. They push us to try even harder. So come and visit us and decide for yourself. Our usp is maintaining indian cooking traditions that have withstood the test of time, while tailoring ourselves to being a modern indian restaurant in the Australian context.In addition to dine-in we also do catering for in-house or off-site events, as well as take-away of course. We have an extensive variety of vegetarian options, and can suitably cater for other dietary requirements, including gluten free. So call us or visit our website to book and we look forward to seeing you soon and again, and again, and...

“Very tasty place to eat”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We found this restaurant by chance, and enjoyed a tasty dinner and good service. The place gradually got more crowded (Saturday night), but was not so noisy that we had to shout to have a conversation. It was also very reasonably priced, and the bottle shop practically next door meant we could use the BYO wine option.

“One Word: Delicious!”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Went on a rainy night, feeling like something hearty so decided to give Bollywood a go. Absolutely beautiful food. I got the impression that they're trying out some new ideas to lift the menu a bit. If that's the case then they're finely on the right track. For example the tasting menu was a perfect way to start the meal, light morsels to share and delicious. We had the non vegetarian taster. Followed up with the Goan fish curry and Leg of lamb for mains. Both excellent. Incredibly fresh Barramundi in the curry with a gorgeous sauce, plenty of depth in the flavor. The lamb was just as good with a totally different yet still amazing sauce. Service was friendly without being intrusive and wine list good with a range of process to sit different budgets. One of the better restaurants in Canberra, highly recommended!

Many thanks for taking the time to provide feedback - especially in relation to the Tandoori taster as indeed we are trying to offer something different and economical but also to stick with traditional known dishes. Your feedback about the food and service has been passed on to the team. Regards Arjan

The tandoori tasting plate is a fantastic way to try a few different tastes. The banquet options look very affordable. three courses for $35. Highly recommended.

“A Great Choice”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Came here with friends with a newborn baby relatively early on a Friday nighy and the staff were great in finding the best table for us. It was definately not the worst table either.

As for the food it seemed as authentic as you can get outside of India. The vindaloo I ordered was spicy, as I was expecting. Will certainly be back!
