Indian Mahal Restaurant’s menu of South Asian specialties is as about as extensive as you can get. For first timers to this fine Melbourne restaurant, we highly recommend trying out some of the barbecue tandoori specials like the vegetarian tandoori mushrooms, garlic chicken kebab or pork tikka cooked with spices, tomato and onion. Spice lovers are crazy for the goat mahal spicy curry, a dish consisting of boneless pieces of goat cooked in a velvety coconut and tomato sauce. The desserts on offer at Baxter’s Indian Mahal Restaurant are also excellent – try the pistachio kulfi for a sweet finish.
Easy to book on Quandoo website. Lovely food, good service, close to home. One of our local favourites - definitely our most frequented Indian restaurant!
Our visit was on a busy Friday night. The restaurant was full and there was a constant stream of take away orders. This all blurred into the background when the food arrived. The servers were attentive but unobtrusive. When it was obvious that we had over ordered for entree our server offered to bag some of it so we wouldn't spoil our main course. Great advice. Entire meal was delicious, main dishes kept warm on table, generous serves and nice range of breads. We ended up with a good sized doggy bag that we were assured is better the day after. We had heard good things about this restaurant and our only regret was that we hadn't visited earlier. Looking forward to our tasty leftovers.
The Food is great and there is loads of parking it's a great place I just wish I could fit more in. I'm definitely coming back.
We always love the food here and the new renovations look great. Our favourite Indian restaurant on the peninsula to eat in and for take away.
The food was great both times we've been. Only thing that was a bit frustrating was that the rice came out 5 mins after everything else so we couldn't start eating and everything sat there getting cold. Very friendly staff and a nice environment.
As usual we enjoyed the food, veggie korma and palak paneer and the service was good too. The best Indian food we'be had on the peninsula.
We made a booking for Valentine's Day a week before the date. Arrived at 6.40pm, waited 5 minutes before we told the man at the front we had a booking and he said to take a seat anywhere, so we did. After sitting and waiting for 30 minutes, a lady put some flowers on our table and we said we were ready to order and she told us someone would be with us shortly. 15 minutes later we stood up and walked out as this was never going to happen. Very disappointing as we had heard such wonderful things about Indian mahal
