The stalwarts for some years have been regular culprits Abhi’s at Concord, Manjit’s at Balmain, Nilgiri’s at St Leonard’s, Maya at Surry Hills and Zaaffraan at Darling Harbour. But in the last two years, new kid on the block Urban Tadka at Terrey Hills has splashed on to the scene with a bang, winning not only fans within the Indian community but also industry awards. Meanwhile, Thousand Spices at Homebush, Bijolias at Seaforth and Mantra and Dragon House Indo-Chinese at Ryde continue on steadily with their band of regulars. In specific pockets of the community, Maharaja’s Haveli at Quakers Hill, Castle Taj in Castle Hill and Indian Fusion at Pennant Hills are popular with locals. In the Parramatta area, Kings Indian and the new Anjappar Chettinad are doing well. For Harris Park, try Hyderabad House, Billu’s and Taj, and the new Durga Paan and Falooda House for its Indian style ice creams.

Many of these restaurants have function rooms if you want to organise an event or party. Some venues such as Nilgiris or Urban Tadka will organise high-class corporate or private events with all the trimmings, but for the Indian community, Manjit’s Concord Function Centre is the go-to place for large-scale events such as weddings.
