Proper Good Indian in Brisbane ?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know a good quality traditional (in the British sense, ie not haute cuisine or nouveau) indian restaurant in Brisbane ? My fave so far is the Himalayan (not Tibetan) in New Farm....also tried Hum Tum in Everton Park for takeout and it was really good.....but not great...

I arrived in Brisbane 20years ago and it was impossible to find a decent curry over here.

 

Even today, looking for an authentic "British style" indian is tricky.

 

You will not find a Tindaloo or Phaal anywhere !

 

Another thing you will find over here is that when you order a madras or say vindaloo the staff will often ask you if you would like it "mild, medium or hot" - at that point I suggest you ask for "Indian Hot" or ask for a side of Chilii to make it to your liking.

 

THe two links below probably cover the best you'll find In Brisabne

 

Good luck - tell me how you went

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Spice Avenue in Birkdale is run by guys from Wolverhampton. True British curries. Fab! Well worth the visit. Need to book as it is VERY popular, but they do takeaway as well. Next door to them is a proper British fish and chip shop, with imported cod and haddock! Pricey, but worth it.

In Sitar in Albion when the server heard my english accent, he asked if I wanted it British Hot. Must be a lot of us poms asking for hotter!

Yes they do - I was looking at the menu when we were at Chumley Warners a few weeks ago.

I haven't been to Spice Avenue yet either but it seems to be very highly rated by most of the Brits who have been.

I can not agree more - you need to define the definition of HOT - Aussie or Brit - There is a huge difference.

Put quite simply Australia does not have the "5 pints in the local then lets go for a curry" that exists back in the UK

Spice Avenue Birkdale is the best we've tried

Would rather make my own as so often disappointed

We had one of the best curries we have ever had in Varsity lakes, near Robina on the Gold Coast. We had succulent beef curry, I haven't had beef curry since the CJD scare here in the UK and everything we had was gorgeous, plus ...... We were sat outside, yes ..... Outside eating a gorgeous Indian curry, washing it all down with cold Indian lager. It's the best Indian curry house experience I have ever had. YEAH BABY.

Hoff, was in the 'precinct' near the school? If so we too ate there and it was very good. I think they have a couple of restaurants in and around Brissy / Gold Coast.

It was a resteraunt where half the tables were inside and the other half were outside, the beef was falling apart when we ate it, it was so tender. We then went to a huge sports bar for a drink and a band was on it was great.

The spice avenue is fantastic we went a few weeks ago and could have been back in blighty , the curry was fantastic and I washed it down with 3 pints of carling , we'll worth a visit and the good thing is that unlike most brisbane resteraunts they don't stop serving early and put the tables away when you are still eating , they still serve till 10pm on a sat if they are busy enough the kitchen is open till everyone has finished eating .
