Visited here a few years ago and the food was great. We had takeaway a couple of times during our recent stay and it seems that the sauces are pre prepared and the meat put in after..... not actually cooked in the sauce. We have excellent Indian restaurants where we live so know how it should be when it's cooked... More

Excellent Indian food. Chicken korma was so tasty especially with basmati rice, mango chutney and a terrific--slightly sweet with mint--raita. Naan was terrific , stuffed with raisin and nuts. Also had Mexican fajita--it was good but not as good as Indian. Wish we had ordered second Indian meal instead of the fajita. Wine wasn't good but ordered cheap and got... More

Two of us for dinner, with no reservation. We were asked if we had booked; we said no, the waitress looked around the less than half full restaurant (no "Reserved" signs on any table) and pursed her lips, looking for a free table as if we were a distraction to her. What was that about? The place is nearly empty!... More

Last night we visited Indiyum in Caloundra for the very first time. It will not be our last. Ever since moving here we have been looking for a really good Indian Restaurant and this place really lived up to our expectations. To be honest we had passed it by a number of times believing that the mix of Mexican and... More

Came here with a large group, enticed by the Indian Mexican fusion. We were not disappointed. We all ordered butter chicken in various Mexican meals - enchiladas, chimichangas and quesadillas, and they were all amazing. Will most definitely be back!

Our family (including my 91 year old dad) enjoyed the meal at Indiyum. The welcoming staff made us feel very comfortable. We shared a variety of dishes: mango chicken, lamb saagwala, chicken korma, rogan josh and coconut rice. My father had the Indian/Mexican burrito. This restaurant provides a casual atmosphere which is great for family gatherings. This is the 3rd... More
