Consistently excellent. We have dined here every few months for over 10 years (and now Uber eats and Deliveroo deliver so no more arguing mid winter who is braving the cold to get dinner - WIN!) it is consistently excellent.

My partner and I visited this place for a take out. The restaurant had a large sitting area which was completely empty. There is a separate area for take out which had quite a few patrons. We order one vegeterian dish (Paneer Makhani) and a chicken dish (Chicken Machoorian) along with rice and couple of Naan breads. We ended up... More

This is my favourite Indian restaurant in Melbourne. The owner is very attentive, and his staff are efficient and obliging. The samosas are delish, the tandoori dishes are tasty (love when they come out sizzling), and there is a large selection on the menu of other meat and vegetarian dishes. Their raita and naan - mmm! Good size servings and... More

Have been going to the Indian star for years now with mixed experiences. This last time will be my final. My dining partner was seated on arrival at a dirty table and he attempted to wave down a waitress to clear the previous mess for about ten minutes. When they finally cleaned up and set our table they failed to... More

Seriously everyone needs to try this place if they want authentic Indian food! Had chicken tikka for entree and daal maharani for main and both were the best I've ever eaten. Service is friendly and efficient, will definitely be coming back on a regular basis and bringing my friends :)
