About Gaylord Indian Restaurant
With an enviable location on Tattersalls Lane, just yards from Central Station between Lonsdale Street and Little Bourke Street, Gaylord Indian restaurant has been doling out top-notch Indian food to the curry-crazed public of Melbourne since 1985. Chef Musharraf has been in the business for 40 years: he has the parathas down to pat, the chapattis coming out a charm and the naans: well they’re second to none. And that’s just the bread...

Indian food is pretty ubiquitous in Melbourne, and Gaylord Indian on Tattersalls Lane in the city centre comes right towards the top of the league among the Victorian curry cognoscenti. Their chef has 40 years in the business, and they’ve been trading from their current location – between Lonsdale Street and Little Bourke Street – since 1985, a level of longevity rarely seen in the ultra-competitive world of city centre restaurants. Step inside though, and it isn’t hard to see why they keep packing them in after all these years.
The strength of a good Indian restaurant is, of course, in the curries, and at Gaylord Indian, they’ve got them sussed. From hearty North Indian classics like rogan josh to spicy southern dishes like vindaloo, their menu is a culinary tour of the subcontinent. On Tattersall Lane, the tandoor oven never stops producing top-notch meat and seafood dishes, as well as the essential array of bread with which to scoop them up and dispatch them. Melbourne city centre is an unforgiving place to be a restaurateur, but with food like this, we don’t think Chef Musharraf will be too concerned just yet. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to get yourself a table at Gaylord Indian: unless you book in advance, of course.
Excellent friendly service and great food. We were a party of 6. We were greeted and taken to our table and offered drinks. And asked what food we would like. They were very accommodating to alter foods to our liking. The food was delicious.
Always amazing service and delicious food. They never have a problem with us adding people to our table at the last minute. Can't fault this place!
Really good service and atmosphere. The food was delicious and they helped me with my allergies when choosing from the menu. We will be back!
They were excellent!! The food was delicious and the service out of this world... ...we loved the authentic décor and the photographs of cricketing celebrities who have eaten here, on the walls.
Great place Plenty of room. Great service. Great value for money. Food....... mmmm........ Food was absolutely beautiful. Good size serves with nice side dishes. Will definitely be back
Good service, tasty food at reasonable prices. Restaurant is located in heart of Melbourne CBD. The lamb cutlets were sooooo delicious & I will be having them again on my return.
Always a good place to take a big group. Had more than enough food for 12 of us and didn't cost the earth. The palak paneer is the best.
Food was flavourful and came out a reasonable amount of time after ordering. Service was ok, a bit awkward at times but the staff were very friendly.
All of our food was delicious and came out very quickly. The staff were very nice. I saw Steven K Amos there. It was dope.
Food was wonderful but the restaurant was extremely noisy. We had to ask to be moved to a corner to try to talk to each other.
Typical oily smell inside - doesn't feel like in a restaurant. Staff argues unnecessarily when being questioned about the food quality instead providing a solution - engages in an awful way. Food tastes so so... Can be a choice if no other place is available to go for food. Very disappointed to what has been portrayed in the online advertisements and promos. Cheers
Food was great and reasonably priced. Service very slow. Took 20 minutes to even have drink order taken. Second bottle of wine just plonked on table...had to ask for ice bucket.
