“Outstanding quality, taste and service”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We were thrilled to invite some lovely friends to share our dining experience at this authentic Indian restaurant. The atmosphere was very welcoming with a personal greeting by the chef GJ and regular attention by the friendly staff. Attention to detail was obvious in the furnishings and decor and on a cool, rainy evening it was cosy and comfortable. Choosing our meals took some time because the range was all so tempting. The actual menu is the most visually appealing I have ever seen and our meal choices were fresh and delicious. We enjoyed sharing a 'taste test' with each other because we all believed our meal was the best. This is a dining experience not to be missed in a beautiful setting only metres from the beach.

“Exceptional Indian Experience”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Indiyum would have to be the best Indian experience ever.
The food is that good you look past the below average service from the younger staff.
It is clear BJ takes pride in his cooking and actively seeks feedback from his customers.
Take the time and enjoy the best authentic Indian food you will find anywhere.

“Fantastic authentic Indian food & excellent service”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This review is coming from an Indian. I have tried many Indian restaurants food at Sunshine coast and I can tell you that GJ’s food is the most authentic Indian food you can get at the coast.

Recommend this restaurant highly. You can actually see what’s cooking! In his open kitchen, friendly head chef GJ greets you while you are looking at his amazing talent of handling many dishes together without spoiling any!

Lovely atmosphere, great staff, and excellent food at the most reasonable price. Only try the Indiyum if you want to eat Authentic Indian food. GJ’s varied overseas experience inspired him to create unique fusion of Mexican-India dishes - which are to die for!

Make sure you book a table in advance as they are always full, even weekdays. They deserve to be because their food is simply excellent. About as authentic as you will ever taste outside India. Do visit as this is full value for money.

“Beautiful Flavors quality food excellent selection”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

simply the best Indian Restaurant i have been to. As a Professional Athlete and Coach of Athletes Food quality is of the uppermost importance to me. Indyum has the choice of the typical indian style meals but the options i have never come across in an Indian restaurant before. The Chief is more the accommodating for the nutritional needs of some of the athletes and clients i take there. Take away or Dine in the meals are just superb. If you like Indian you will not find better than Indiyum.
