    Sample truly delicious meat and fish at Canberra's Indian restaurants

    If there's one thing Australians do well in the kitchen, it's demonstrating the art of perfect grilling. Canberra's Indian restaurants are no exception, and as a result there's plenty of locally-sourced, top-class meat and fish dishes for you to try. Garnish of India on Bunda Street has a menu that would make even the most discerning diner's mouth water: carnivorous feasts like the bhuna ghosh (boneless lamb and julienned onions in a thick, spicy sauce) or taw goat (sizzling goat cooked with onions, spices and turmeric) are designed to tantalise your tastebuds. Even though Canberra is nearly a hundred miles from the seaside, there are still plenty of fish dishes on offer at Canberra's Indian restaurants. At Garnish of India, for example, you can sample top-quality dishes like fish masala (boneless fish pieces cooked in a herby and spicy tomato sauce) or khadhai prawns (sizzling prawns with fenugreek, coriander and onions). Whatever it is you're craving, you'll be sure to find it at Canberra's Indian restaurants.

    Enjoy top-notch vegetarian food at Canberra's Indian restaurants

    With many regions of India famous for their vegetarian cooking, it's no surprise that Canberra's Indian restaurants are able to cater so well to the needs of those who want a meat-free meal. Whether you're committed to not consuming meat or you just fancy a change from the usual menu fare, Canberra's Indian restaurants can serve up a vegetarian feast fit for a king. For an exceptional vegetarian menu, try Taj Agra on Luxton Street near the university's Bruce campus. Here you can enjoy dishes like malai kofta (freshly-homemade cottage cheese served with vegetables, nuts and potatoes in a creamy sauce) or the regional speciality Punjabi kadi pakora (vegetable dumplings in a decadent tangy sauce). If your group's visit to Canberra's Indian restaurants wouldn't be perfect without some good quality vegetarian options, then this is the eatery for you.

    Don't forget dessert at Indian restaurants in Canberra

    The pungent flavours and spicy aromas picked up by your nose when you walk through the door at many of Canberra's Indian restaurants might lead you to believe that the culinary culture here is all about savoury food. But that couldn't be further from the truth: while the diners and chefs alike at Canberra's Indian restaurants love starters like onion bhajis and main courses jam-packed with spice, there's a lot to satisfy even the sweetest of teeth as well. If you'd like dessert to be a major part of your meal, it's definitely worth booking at Copper Chimney in the Melbourne Building on W Row, which offers a wide range of traditional desserts from India including gulab jamun dumplings and carrot halwa - a decadent pudding made with carrots and milk. If you don't fancy a heavy dessert or you're feeling warm in the pleasant temperatures of the city, why not try a kulfi? This gorgeous Indian ice cream comes in flavours ranging from nutty pistachio to fragrant saffron and is topped with a delicious rose syrup for an extra sweet touch.
