We went to dinner on a Wednesday night after friends recommended the restuarant. Being mid-week it was quiet. The food is really delicious. We had vegetable pakoras, Goan fish curry, one of the paneer dishes and an eggplant based vegetarian dish. Lots of flavour and the right amount of spice. Service was good up until we finished our main course.... More

Went here last night. Been on the road now for weeks and we were looking for some traditional comfort food. The Indian Affair really delivered. Perfect nan, a great rice dish that we were not expecting and a vindaloo that was right at the edge spicy. The owner came to our table for a visit and was very gracious. Very... More

Took my daughter here for her 16th birthday dinner. The food was fantastic, particularly the lamb korma. The service is as good as everyone says. The decor is great too.

My wife and son went to Canberra overnight and had wanted to find a decent Indian restaurant. We live in Sydney and have had some terrible experiences. We generally stick to one restaurant that we know. So it was with a bit of trepidation that we entered Indian Affair Restaurant. Well we are put at ease instantly by the lovely... More

The service started with the polite phone response to our booking request..." we look forward to serving you tonight..." How lovely! We were greeted enthusiastically by Natasha on our arrival and shown to our window table. Our BYO bottle was handled expertly and poured while we looked through he menu and chomped on papadams. Suggestions were made to help with... More

Great service on the phone and in person at the restaurant. Delicious curries and naan. We had a mix of spicy and medium. Even the spicy isn't super hot for someone with a (very) high tolerance so it might be worth asking for extra spice if you like your curries super hot. Easy street parking right outside is an added... More

Midweek visit with the family. Ordered a mixed plate of naan, peshwari naan and three main. Butter chicken was very good, as was the tandoori lamb. Dishes were small and a bit pricey, but nobody walked away hungry.

We came here tonight for the first time on a completely random whim. It is in a quieter part of Phillips which makes parking a whole lot easier. The service was not the most efficient in terms of timing but it was absolutely fantastic in terms of quality, friendliness and how welcome they make you feel. The food were mostly... More
