About Copper Chimney - Canberra

Copper Chimney use ‘Athithi Devo Bhavah’ as their mantra. That means ‘The Guest is God’, and it is used to exemplify the Indian attitude towards hospitality: that one should treat a guest as if they were god or indeed, given that this is India, gods incarnate. They offer an appropriate foodie temple for hungry Vishnus, Shivas, Ganeshas or any of the others, and a menu that evokes all the best of Indian cuisine. Their masalas are sourced in India and shipped to Australia, and their curry pastes are completely homemade, so you know that your base ingredients are going to be good. Their tandoori dishes are freshly cooked and their curries include all the favourites, with a slant towards the specialities of Northern India. You can find them right at the heart of Canberra’s Civic, on W Row – walkable from The Australian National University, the Supreme Court and City Hill – so book a table and head on over for a superb Indian meal in the nation’s capital.

Copper Chimney might be my favourite restaurant here in Canberra! The food taste amazing every time we go, and the staff is so friendly and helpful. Copper Chimney has dishes that are actually hot (but still tasty!), as well as good options for those who prefer medium or mild dishes. I have yet to try a dish I would not want to try again; everything is awesome. We enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant, and re-visit when we have the chance.
