I have been coming to this family run restaurant on and off for the past 18 years depending which state my work takes me. This is one of my highlights of Melbourne, enjoying such authentic and perfectly cooked curries with soft and fluffy Naan on...the side. The staff here are super friendly, always greet you with a smile and tailor your spice level and allergies in their food. Thanks for you great hospitality and great food. You have a life long regular customer! Phani (from ACT)More

We are in Melbourne for the week from Western Australia and with my being of Indian heritage I needed a curry fix. We are staying in Delgraves street so just googled what was around and chose this place without having read any reviews, we were...too hungry and just took pot luck. Best decision ever! This food is absolutely AMAZING. We ordered the Dahl Makhani, Aloo Chicken, Coconut rice, papadums, and a couple of onion bajis for starters. The Bajis were a most unique flavour and at first we were a bit iffy but with every bite they really grew on us and by the last bite I wish I had of ordered more. Delicious! The dipping sauce is allso very unique and tasty. I think there is a semolina base to these, normally they are chickpea flour, i think these are amazing. Im always a big fan of dahl and in particular dahl makhani, it is something I order regularly from an assortment of places around Perth. This one is by a long shot far superior to anything I have ever tasted before. It is creamier and a little smoky, the pulses are cooked to perfection, and the consistency couldn't be more spot on. I think I will move to Melbourne just to eat this every week. I am wondering how much I can freeze and fit into my suitcase? lol. The rice was perfect, coconut rice is always my favourite thing, and my hubby absolutely loved his Aloo chicken which had a lovely flavour of fresh aromatic coriander throughout and a spot on blend of meat to gravy (definitely not stingy). Couldn't fault this food at all and can't see how anyone could unless there is a different chef on some nights. The chef tonight deserves top recognition. The actual seating area is not too fancy, rather small, and plainly decorated, but this totally did not make any impact to us as we were just there to appreciate darn good food (most fancy places do not get the authenticity anywhere near as right as this place) and if you perhaps aren't into sitting in a pokey ally-way perhaps get take away - they do it. The gentlemen who served us were super friendly, very obliging, and prompt. I can't fault them at all. I would like to thank everyone in this business for a wonderful meal, the best I have had in Melbourne so far. I have 3 days left, hope to squeeze in another meal before I leave. Before I sign out, I have to mention that the value here is amazing, in fact we were a bit hesitant because of how cheap the menu was. But as it turns out, it was just really well priced quality food.More

First night in Melbourne and although generally spoilt for choice it was Good Friday and lots closed or booked out. Then on way back to hotel we stumbled across this gem. Most authentic Indian we have had in ages - goat curry was excellent ....Saw chicken tikka being served to table next to us and with fomo had to order some and was a good decision. Licensed.More

I have migrated to Sydney from India in 2014 and from Sydney to Melbourne in 2018. I have tried easily over 100 Indian restaurants in Sydney and Melbourne combined and can honestly say that this is by far the best and reminds me of home....I first came across this hidden gem at the begining of 2020 just before covid hit. We had take away (saag paneer, daal tadka, roganjosh with naan) it was extremely good. Thank god they they made it through covid and are open again. We will be in every week for our regular yummy meal. Also we cant go past how friendly the 2 brothers/hosts are here, they make you feel right at home. Thank you guys. We will definitely order everything on your menu. See you next week.More

We came here after reading reviews online and the food and staff certainly live up to what was said. The butter chicken is amazing along with the garlic naan and onion bajhis. Been in Australia for 5 years and never found an Indian as good....Going back again tonight before relocating back to Sydney!More

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Gourmet Curry Hut. We ordered the Lamb Madras which we asked for spicy and it was just right and the butter chicken which we enjoyed mild. The flavours of the dishes were just amazing and...we couldn’t have asked it to be any better. If your after authentic curries this place is definitely on top of the list.More
