    Super authentic food and quick friendly service. Asked for food ‘spicy’ and was very impressed.

    An amazing find while on a work trip. The food is aromatic and spicy, just as curry should be. The owner is a generous and genuine guy. I'll be back every time I visit Melbourne as a highlight!

    Best Indian food in Melbourne. If your going in groups of 3 or more I suggest you book as they get very busy.

    Always a good experience here! My boyfriend and I go to a lot of Indian restaurants and think this is one of the best by far! Quite a good location and fun vibe, food is reasonably priced and good quality. Staff are also nice and helpful, oh and drinks are cheap! What more could you want.

    Very good authentic Indian restaurant in the middle of the arcade and in the centre of the city with friendly staff. Worth a stop by if you're a fan of indian food. Had the was a hot fiery curry but the spices in it were amazing. Worth trying this spot!

  • 5Harpreet K. 1 year ago
    I can't stop bragging about my experience at Gourmet Curry Hut. It's a journey of delicious traditional Indian food. You could customize the spice level. Each dish is so thoughtfully prepared and presented. The dishes are excellent portion sizes for sharing to be able to taste your way around quite a bit of the menu. Their butter chicken, goat curry and fish curry is to die for. Highly recommended as your top Indian food experience in Melbourne!

    This is the best Indian eatery in the CBD. Rich, textured dishes, crisp, buttery naan and friendly and helpful staff all blend together to create a perfect inner city food experience. Possible to get a fantastic meal under $20. Not a huge establishment so even when busy food arrives quickly. Amazing.

    Truly the BEST Indian food I have ever had! The sauces were so incredibly tasty and the meat was super tender! Was super reasonably priced as well and was not disappointed. Food was served fresh within 10 minutes and the staff were very friendly. They offered both takeaway and eat in. We chose eating in as the restaurant had a very cosy and semi romantic environment. Highly recommend!

    Best Indian food in the city. very authentic and tastes amazing

  • 5Alexander M. 1 year ago
    Myself and friends have been coming to this restaurant for the last 4 years from Germany for the F1. We can honestly say that this is one of the best Indian restaurants around the globe. The food is spectacular, flavoursome and very fresh. The heat level is cooked to the level you prefer. Very clean place and the staff are very welcoming, hence we always return. Although we were devastated that the F1 got cancelled but are glad that we will be eating here for the next 4 nights. Keep up the amazing work 10/10

    Amazing service, amazing food. Just everything was amazing. Im writng this review while still sitting in the restaurant I was so eager to review this place 5/5. 100% will definately recommend.

  • 4Juliana F. 1 year ago
    Yum! Really enjoyed the goat curry and daal makhani. The host was exceptionally delish and gel off the bone. The naan was also light - it didn’t have the density naan normally has which I really enjoyed

  • 4Mng Zhu L. 1 year ago
    I stumbled upon this little restaurant by accident. The reviews weren't lying. The service is very polite and friendly, the food is delicious. I had the chicken curry. They even ask the level of spiciness you can handle. It is not cheap, but not very expensive either. I would say it is mid range. I very highly recommend.

  • 4Carl B. 1 year ago
    Exellent food.

  • 4Majeed A. 1 year ago
    Super friendly staff and nice atmosphere. I had the lamb Korma and chicken rice, both were delicious, the Nan bread was also super. They just can improve their rice a little more but still very nice though. The only one that could really make a difference is if they have hand washing facilities as the current situation is really not working. You need to get a bathroom key then take the lift to the first floor which is a long story. Otherwise everything was perfect ??

    A hidden gem! The food is fabulous and the owners are always very friendly. When I'm in Melbourne, I try to get here for at least one meal. The restaurant is cosy and tucked away in an arcade, so it's not a flashy place where you bring people to impress them with a fancy dining room. However, I find that adds to the personal charm of the place, where you have the opportunity to chat with the owners (if that's your thing) whilst eating their delicious food. Recently, they introduced me to one of their desserts, Gulab Jamun. I'd never had this before and found it to be an interesting marriage of a deep fried cheese flavoured dumpling covered in a sugary, slightly rose flavoured syrup. Definitely worth a try to finish off your meal, particularly to settle your palate from the chilli.of your meal. Speaking of chilli, being very authentic food, I've found their food to be on the spicy side. As such, I usually ask for mild chilli.

    Well, I can't say that food was not good or something, but felt the portion size were quite small. We went for fish curry and rice and afterwards felt quite empty. So ended up having chicken tikka, an entree item.. Lol. The place it self was very small with congested seating arrange with some 5 tables placed on the corridor. The staff was friendly and attentive. Service was reasonably quick.

  • 2Daniel M. 11 months ago
    Very fast pickup and friendly service. The Chicken Naan was a terrible disappointment though. It had very tiny pieces of chicken scattered inside -- certainly not "stuffed", like with a typical naan. Also, it had barely any flavour; I had to use sauce to liven it up. The Kashmiri Naan was similarly disappointing – the fillings were quite sparse and the nuts tasted stale.
