Best of Canberra – Indian

By Bec Cuzzillo 16 June 2015 31

indian food

Indian food is much like Indian dancing – exciting, colourful, a little bit saucy and a lot spicy. I know I say this most weeks about most foods, but Indian is definitely one of my favourite cuisines. 

My love of Indian food began when I worked in an Indian restaurant during high school and really took hold when I spent a month travelling in India as a uni student. That’s where I learnt that curry is appropriate any time of day – yes, even for breakfast – and all hot drinks are sweetened with a mountain of sugar.

While I am yet to find somewhere that does Indian like India, I know that there are plenty of restaurants in Canberra that almost get there. Whether you like a mild korma or a spicy vindaloo, I want to know who serves up your favourite Indian in town. 

To vote, let me know who makes Canberra’s best Indian in the comments below. I’ll try the two most popular places and let you know the verdict in next Monday’s Taste Off article.

There is no vegetarian dishes available in any of these Indian restaurants. They all not prepared properly. Hygiene in the kitchen and with staff is very poor. There is no high standard of food in any of the Indian restaurants. I like to see vegetarian only Indian restaurants.

Try Malabar dine….it has got vegetarian varieties

Malabar Fine is the best Indian restaurant in town. They serve Indian dishes in its originality. I think if once tried their dish you wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.

Jewel of India, Manuka. You should try their black dahl.
Ruchi, Belconnen. You must try their dosai.
Gunghalin has a great one too, Flavours of India, I believe.
I won’t do Bollywood Masala again if only due to the prices.
Ramas? Minnie is magnificent but I generally go elsewhere to eat.

I find Flavours of India in outside Woden Plaza (Corinna Street) to be consistently good. Others whom I have taken there also praise it. Never a bad meal there.

Another vote for Indian Affair in Phillip. It’s my favourite, but it’s on the other side of town to where I live.

I tried NH8 in Gungahlin last night and was very impressed! Fabulous food and service, including a free little appetiser. Highly recommended!

Hard to go past Indian Affair in Philip. The daughter’s business in Civic is pretty good too – can’t recall the name.

That would be the imaginatively named Indian Affair in the City. Good food, good service, very friendly staff.

Indian Affair in Phillip for the best butter chicken, but also Punjabi Junction in Belconnen for the best lunch pack / buffet.

Taj Mahal on Northbourne in Civic. Consistently good – chicken moghlai is a must.

+1
Love the food at Taj Mahal

Another vote for Taj Mahal.
One of the few places where you ask for a Vindaloo or Madras extra hot, and actually get something that is extra hot rather than barely makes you break a sweat.

Ruchi for South Indian cuisine in Belconnen – great masala dosa. Or Delhi6 in civic – delicious food and lovely service.
