“Great tasting food as a fair price”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went there for a work function and had a rather decent meal. The only thing I found was not knowing how big the portions would be before ordering. If you have a big appetite you should err on the larger side so you don't have to stop at McDonalds afterward.

“An Indian delight!”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Right opposite Flinders Street Station...so GREAT location. Vibrant little place. Understated with good,wholesome, tasty Indian food.Quick service and VERY good value for your money. A must try if you like your curries. One small criticism is that their tamarind chutney is too sweet and almost syrupy! It needs to be as it should...sour and tasty!Poured over the Chaat it just did not taste good!

“great location for a quick cheap meal”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This 'restaurant' is really a buffet style cafe near one of the city's main intersections - Flinders and Swanston St. Food is quick and good; there are many locals of Indian background eating there. It is clean and cheap. You can buy drinks at a reasonable price although they have a very small range. There is no rush so the traveller can sit and rest as well as eat. No tipping is required at a place like this.
There are many good cheap Indian eateries in the city - another good one with a greater variety of curries is Bam Bam on Lonsdale street, near the Elizabeth Street corner. (This does not have an alcohol licence and is more of a lunchtime spot. It serves lots of international students so the offerings change more than Flora's. You may need to share a table. Food is great especially the dahl.)
