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!

We had a fabulous meal at Basecamp. It was a special occasion for our family and the food, service and overall experience was excellent. Thank you for a great night.
Cheap, great food and ambiance. Have never been disappointed with any aspect of the dining experience. Staff, chefs etc Nice lighting, place abuzz with people and the aroma of beautiful dpices
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
Delicious fresh cooked food, I'd definately return. Heaps of vegan and vego options too. Good service and reasonable prices. In a good location on the high street.
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.
Excellent food excellent service. one of the best Indian and Nepalese restaurants in all of Melbourne. Being Sunday, it was relatively quiet. And $25 per person though we ate a lot!
Very friendly staff. Warm and comfortable setting decorated with original paintings from Nepal. Enjoyed watching the chefs preparing the wonderful, flavoursome food served in plentiful proportions . Great value for money!
Best curry iv had in melbourne great entree aswell if you are in to currys i highly recommend going and checking it out as you will not be disappointed
Have been to base camp a few times and am never disappointed with the delicious food here. Always busy but welcoming and friendly athmophere. Definitely recommend booking if you want a table though !
Great food and the service was great especially for a large table of 10. I like that you can see the kitchen as they make fresh naan. BYO is always a great perk too!
What a fantastic meal! First time trying this cuisine and it was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend the lamb balti and the momos with a side of mango lassi!
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.
Delicious menu, very good service, quick and prompt. The food was served to perfection. Loved all three mains that we chose. Planning on eating again here soon.
It's all about the Balti Chicken, very good. Momos also very nice, and nothing wrong with the lamb rogan josh. Good atmosphere in the restaurant as well
Brilliant as usual, great food and comfortable dining. Will be going back for the Birmingham Balti. Surprised to get an easy park on a Sunday night.
Best Indian in town. Delicious food, great service and lovely atmosphere. Tried a lot of Indian restaurants, this is my favourite by far. Highly recommend
Great food, attentive service, was a bit noisy however. We took our friends from England who really enjoyed it, especially the goat curry which they had never tried before
Love the food generally but Lamb Saag not up to normal - a bit bland. Took a while for waitress to take our order last night. Otherwise still a favourite for the price.
Fantastic food and service. The only very small negative was a long delay between entre and main but when it came out it was devine.
Great, fresh food and very authentic. Service was very helpful with the menu and the wait wasn't too bad. Will definitely be going back again.
Food was ok. Dumplings were a bit dry as was the chilli beef. Service was ok. Really better for takeaway I imagine. Convenient for a night at the cinema.
Tasty monos. Service is a bit slow. Vegetarian dishes can be flavoursome Although plain nan was nice and flaky, garlic nan was dificient in garlic or flavour.
