About Base Camp Templestowe

The rolling green hills of the Yarra Valley Parklands on the edge of Templestowe may not immediately conjure up associations with the mighty Himalayas of South Asia. But thankfully there is one way to feel like you are in northern India around here: Base Camp Templestowe. Proudly bringing Birmingham Balti to James Street in the eastern Melbourne suburbs, Base Camp Templestowe is a family-run and family-friendly restaurant combining the famous flavours of the Himalayan region with the intuition of Britain’s multicultural society. Perfected, presumably, in the West Midlands, Birmingham Balti defines a special array of Anglo-Indian dishes, served in trademark small dishes, that ranges from soft and smooth curries to those fiery and sweat-inducing. Base Camp Templestowe is ideal for groups and even fussy eaters since they cater these expert curry dishes – such as a spicy lamb and coriander kakori or famous Nepali momo – to vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free preferences.

Tasty food with very humble service. Highly recommend. Must try the cheese naan and bengali macchi. You get a sneak peak at the kitchen where the tandoori oven is

We have eaten at many Indian restaurants in the area however this one was better than the rest because of the flavour of the food, it didn't have the washed out feel, you could taste the flavours of the spices, the service was good and the price was reasonable, I was disappointed with the turnout, perhaps it is the location however it was certainly good value, you should give it a try

The food was excellent, good value for money, service still has a little way to go. I would recommend Base camp to anyone who enjoys indian/nepalese food

Great food, attentive service and lovely atmosphere. After making the booking the restaurant rang to confirm. We were greeted with a round of complimentary drinks and the staff were only too happy to cater for children.

Base camp's food is delicious and moreish, and they have a wonderful vegetarian menu. I have eaten there a couple of times and had take away a couple of times more since they opened. I booked through Quandoo for my birthday with my family. My main concern is that, despite the gorgeous paintings and lovely atmosphere, the service is lacklustre. The owner/manager is great and always comes to check up, but we had to call the waitress over several times to take our order, order more drinks, etc. My husband and I watched in horror as the couple opposite us were handed their bottle of wine, unopened, much less poured into wine glasses! The waitresses are lovely and polite, but it seems their hospitality skills need to be brushed up! Paper table cloths can also be be replaced by fabric ones, the music wasn't turned on until much later in the evening, and the desserts are small in portion sizes and there could be more options - but these are minor issues compared to service. If the service was lifted - and these minor details attended to - this would easily be a standout restaurant in Templestowe.

Quality food and lovely staff. Anyone who loved the original Bhoj Templestowe will love this place. Well worth a visit. It won't be your last.

Great food and service. Different menu from most Indian restaurants we have eaten in. Not many diners in restaurant. Do people know how good the food is?
