Enjoyed an early New Year's Eve dinner at Flavours of India. We tried a variety of dishes and found all quite nice. The vindaloo was spicy enough for our "loves it hot" eater, the garlic naan was good enough that the kids begged to have it for their dessert and got it, and the staff made allo mutter for me even though it's not on the menu. The chai tea was rich and creamy. The staff are kind, attentive without hovering, and do their best. It's affordable, fairly quick, and the surroundings are pleasant. I would eat there again when I'm in Canberra.

Such a nice restaurant, great position upstairs in heart of Canberra city. Wonderful food, extensive choices and great service. We went to Flavours of India for my son's birthday last night and chose the restaurant because my son is Vegan and we wanted a restaurant to suit everyone. We didn't have any expectations and we were delighted with the evening. The staff were extremely helpful accommodating all our needs. We only made our reservation the day before and as they were fully booked they accommodated us in the arcade section just outside the restaurant with a full view of the new year's eve fireworks. The food was simply delicious - all the usual menu with Rogan josh etc but plenty to choose from and very tasty. Very friendly, lovely staff. We will be back.

Have to get there at the right time - food not warmed up properly or is not well topped up. Otherwise, ok.

Dear Shassall,

Thanks for your kind review. We would like to apologies for the substandard service you may have received while we were doing the buffet lunch specials back in June-July2012.

I would also take this opportunity to let you and others know that we currently do not serve any buffet lunch, and it has been replaced with freshly cooked A La Carte lunch menu that we are getting great reviews of.

We will look forward to welcome you again.

Kind Regards
Sabbir Ahmed

The restaurant offers the usual North Indian menu but we had a vegetarian among our party who asked for a Channa Vindaloo and got it, so he was happy that they made this unusual dish. There was a good selection of Indian beers We had at least one alcoholic drink each, one entree and one main and it cost us about $45 each.

I went couple of time to this restaurant and the food was good. The environment is also nice. Worth to try a Chicken tikka, Rogen josh curry and some butter naan. But don't expect the taste like real Indian food :)
