Excellent restaurant. The Goat curry, Butter Chicken and parathas were excellent, and the pappadams and veggie curries were a real treat too. Prices reasonable, atmosphere very good, service top notch. Once I had just walked in for a quick lunch and have been going there for lunch everyday ever since. Have recommended this restaurant to a few friends and all of them are now fans of Dhaka Restaurant. Staff is very friendly and do taste the tea there , its just mind blowing...best tea i have tasted in Melbourne. If you want healthy yet good tasting food and dont wanna spend a fortune either, you have your place in Dhaka.

Some of the best Indian food I have ever had, I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. A very small premises obviously aimed at the take away market, but there are a few tables. Don't let the unimpressive decor put you off, grab a table and enjoy the friendly service and fantastic food. I've tried quite a number of dishes here (because I keep going back every time I visit Melbourne) and everything has been fantastic. I often contemplate flying to Melbourne for the day just for a meal at Dhaka!

We were reading the menu outside the front door when the chef came out and invited us in. At first we thought it was a bad sign, but the guy was so smily and really nice that we went back and took a table. It was the best food in that style ever tasted in Melbourne. This place just cannot compete with other restaurants of its kind. Just delicious, all fresh spices, beautifully cooked food. You could tell the chef's smile rally indicated a lot of love in his food. Really outstanding!

While staying at the Grand Chancellor on Lonsdale St recently, I saw this crummy looking Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant a few doors down.

When in need of some lunch, I thought "the best food is sometimes served in the most ordinary looking restaurants!"

The place is small and has only seating for maybe only 14. As mentioned the atmosphere/ambiance is all but non existant but if you're after great tasting food, this is the place...

At lunch I had Lamb Korma with a serve of rice and a plain naan which was delicious. I went back there for dinner and had the Chicken Tikka Masala which was also superb.

The staff were friendly and prompt and the price was very reasonable.

Highly recommended!
