About Base Camp Northcote

Located on High Street, Base Camp brings the Birmingham balti to the people of Northcote. As well as British-style Indian curries served up in small dishes, you’ll find an array of Nepalese specialities too. Begin with some momo, famous Nepalese steamed dumplings filled with your choice of meat or vegetables and sided with some tomato and sesame chutney, or stick to an old favourite like the tandoori chicken. Then we recommend moving on to Base Camp’s speciality balti dishes, some Himalayan goat curry or the Kathmandu chilli chicken. With its exciting menu that goes way beyond the usual Indian restaurant offerings and stylish surrounds, Base Camp is a favourite among Melbourne’s curry loving crowd. Book a table and head on over to find out what all of the fuss is about for yourself!

Amazing food. Fantastic customer service. I'm a fussy eater and thought I would't be able to find a meal I would like. However, all the dishes were delicious

We booked an early 5:30pm Saturday table for four at Base Camp as we were going to see a film across the road at Westgarth Cinema. We enjoyed vegetarian samosas for entree which were golden and crunchy on the outside, with a nicely textured filling. Our mains were the Balti lamb, chicken Korma and Makhani Dahl. The Balti lamb was delicious, with generous flavours of fruit and spices, the korma creamy and sweet and the Dahl spot on.

Loved all of the entrees and curries, the tandorri chicken was one of the best I've had such a good smoky flavour. The ambiance was great, I just didn't like there version of butter chicken, but the balti and the spicy beef one we had were great :)

food is fantastic and the restaurant has a pleasant ambience. Waitresses are friendly and offer good suggestions on what you could order from the menu. The wines on their list however, do not adequately pair with the food on offer and needs improvement.

We went for a midweek night out and there was great choice for all of us including a vegetarian. The Nepalese ice beer was refreshing and a good choice to have with the curries.

Very well presented restaurant in Westgarth opposite the Cinema. Easy to find, parking ok, up the hill. Food and service was great! Would definitely return. Staff were attentive as well and reasonably priced.

A lovely time and the food was exceptional, without costing you a mint. The service was relatively good. You can book on line and have your reservation acknowledged and confirmed within five minutes. I certainly will be returning.

Food was tasty and prices were reasonable. Spicy too if that is your thing. Main complaint was that the waiting staff were not attentive enough. We needed to several times call out to them for either more drinks or place our order.

Excellent food, good service. Service was a little slow due to the large influx of customers at the time we arrived. Overall experience very enjoyable. Highly recommend it for before or after movies.
