For spice lovers, be sure to request "Indian Hot" or it will be fairly mild. Kids love the butter chicken. BYO.

We order kadai chicken and what we found is big pieces of chicken with too little curry. And the chicken is also dry. Very disappointed.

We tried out Kanishk on recommendation from several people. My husband ordered the mild butter chicken but it was so hot he had to send it back. It was exactly the same heat as my 'Australian hot' chicken madras so that explained everything. Both dishes (once the error was rectified) were ok. We had the papari chaat as a starter... More

I visited here after having Kanishk recommended to me and was overall impressed with my experience. Service was good - staff were friendly and accommodating and the turn around time from order was quite quick (about a 15 minute wait). There is plenty of seating at the restaurant so there didn't look like a need to reserve a table but... More

Love this place, visited so many times. Nice decor and some of the most delicious food I've ever eaten. Wonderful flavours. Favourite starter: Manchurian Chicken / Pineapple Chicken. Mains: Kadahi Chicken or Murgh Dhaniwal Korma. I always end up with leftovers to take home, value for money.

The search for a truly good Indian restaurant has been a bit epic for me and apart from Oh Calcutta in Parnell, Auckland and one whose name I forget but located in a Quebec basement and run by a retired Oxford classic literature Don, fruitless. Certainly in Brisbane. Having driven past Kanishk for years, I finally decided to give it... More

We live in Clayfield and went to Kanishk when it first opened - it was excellent...however over the last couple of years the service and quality of food has deteriorated immensely. We decided to take friends there tonight and had the worst experience. We ordered mild butter chicken for my daughter and told them to ensure there was NO chillis,... More

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience at Kanishk. The restaurant appeared well presented and clean. The waiter who served me was friendly and efficient. I ordered the butter chicken and naan bread, and it was served with 10 minutes, which was perfect for me. The food was very nicely cooked, although it didn't quite live... More

Nothing but praise for Kanishk. We love Indian food and this is not the ubiquitous greasy takeaway version, but real food caringly prepared. Don't be misled by the suburban exterior and affordable prices; service, food and décor is top-notch. All dishes ordered were excellent. Embarrassing to admit, but we must have been quite audible when we were discussing the price... More
