With its traditional decor, handpainted mural of the Taj Mahal and array of authentic Indian dishes on offer, a trip to Sydney’s Al-Rayyan feels like being transported across to India. The menu features all of the curry house classics, and whether you are seeking out some spice or have a milder palate, you’re sure to be delighted with the array of options. Tuck into some chicken samosas or paneer pakoda before moving on to the main affair. We recommend going for a classic like the butter chicken or lamb jalfrezi. Seafood lovers will be delighted with the Goan fish curry, and veggies will find plenty of choice too, from the dal tadka to the paneer tikka masala. Located on Elizabeth Street, Al-Rayyan is a local hotspot, attracting the curry heads of Surry Hills seven days a week.
Food was pretty ok, although we ordered medium heat which left us wanting more heat from our meal. If you do like spicy, you should probably go for more than just medium. Staff-wise, the one waitress that was in at the time, was pretty nice and patient with us while we were trying to figure out what to order.
awesome food, good service , nice staff , great location for team lunch and family party. Very convenient location , easy to access from central station
