Oh this restaurant was a nice surprise, we where staying nearby and didn’t want to wander too far. The food was one of the best Indian food I’ve had. The service was excellent and the restaurant was lovely decorated.

Best place ever! Service was devine, food was delicious and so were the cocktails and shots. We experienced traditional Indian cuisine and I am just in love with it. The atmosphere was beautiful, elegant and we felt like royalty. Visit here !! Just do it...!More

My wife, my daughter and I had one of the best Indian meals ever here. The restaurant is a 3 minute walk from Southern cross station, at the Southern end of a magnificent building which I understand were the old railway headquarters but were converted...to apartments and the Grand Central hotel several years ago . The decor is really beautiful - quite opulent. The food was amazing too. We had some excellent ‘standard’ curries ( butter chicken, Rogan josh) and some unusual dishes too. Of particular note was a starter that I can only describe as spicy liquid encased in a ping pong ball sized thin and crispy shell. Surprisingly delicious. To complete our highly pleasurable experience, the service was spot on - friendly and efficient. A perfect night out.More

We dined here for dinner and the food was simply the best Indian food we’d ever eaten. The garlic naan was the best ever and the food was so beautifully fragrant rather than spicy. The service was impeccable too. We will no longer eat Indian...food in Melbourne anywhere else. Simply the best.More

Nice place for great family dinner, being vegetarian options were limited but the taste encouraged us to come back again. Overall food was tasty, Ambience was great, clean and hygienic place, friendly staff/owner (Mr Raj, Mr Jitender). They change their menu every couple of months,...which is great and looking forward to visit them again.More

Yesterday, I had visited Gaylord restaurant with my family and friends. I was amazed to see the warm retro and yet very cosy and comfortable ambience. We had an assortment of breads, Samosas, paneer tikka, methi malai, veg biriyani, prune kofta, palak paneer. The taste...was so authentic and genuine. This is an Indian restaurant that's worth visiting for any occasion. And interestingly the Owner: mr Raj happens to have studied his hotel Management from our City in India. Keep it up Mr Raj! We will visit you again soon.More

I am not a huge fan of Indian food however we dined here during reopening of the city post Covid when there was limited availability. I usually stick with butter chicken however I was intrigued to see salmon on the menu. It was tandoori salmon...cooked in a coconut based curry and was delicious. Served with skin on, easy to peel off if you are not a fan of skin, the combination of spices was not too hot but very tasty. There was also a good drinks selection and you can BYO wine with a $10 corkage charge. Staff were attentive without being intrusive.More

This is the best indian food I have ever eaten. Their butter chicken is fantastic and the food portions really big compared to other restaurants. It was really well priced and because we ordered over $69 we received a free bottle of wine and free...dessert as well.More

We recently dined in at Gaylord Restaurant and came back this week for a take away feast. Gaylords restaurant has been on the Melbourne Restaurant scene for decades in its former location in a small Laneway in Chinatown but last year relocated into the Grand...Hotel on Spencer Street. With the relocation came a change of ownership and a brave new seasonal menu being introduced to entice Melbourne. Tonight due to Coronavirus closures we ordered take away and chose a range of yummy curries, breads, entree and treats to make our stay in at home all the more bearable. I would totally recommend the Saag Paneer which had a wonderful cardamom flavour and a great level of heat. Another great dish is the Dunbar chicken entree which was quite tikka like and served with a vibrant salad. The breads were moorish and helped me mop up that creamy butter chicken which again was fantastic. Speaking of chicken... from our previous visit when we dined in we really loved the fenugreek chicken curry ( Methi Marg) which I couldn’t stop raving about for days. I am astounded at how tender the chicken was and can only assume days of marinating. Tonight I finished off our Indian feast with Gulab Jamun dumplings in a super sweet syrup... perfect way to end a meal. Excellent faultless food and friendly staff on both occasions of our visit.More
