More about Mumbai Grill, Ferntree Gully

The focal point of Mumbai Grill’s Forest Road restaurant is without a doubt the mighty tandoori oven. An essential part of any North Indian and Punjabi kitchen, this traditional clay oven is what imparts all the tenderness and smoky flavour to favourites like grilled paneer, lamb cutlets, seekh and malai kebabs, chicken tikka and a whole lot more – including indispensable naan and paratha. While tandoori’d grills are perennially popular among Ferntree Gully locals, this east Melbourne Indian restaurant distinguishes itself in more ways than one.

Even Mumbai Grill’s starters present unusual dishes to the discerning diner. Potato bonda are balls of mashed potato blended with mustard seeds, curry leaves and roasted lentils, coated with chickpea batter and deep-fried. Even more appealing to Melbourne’s jaded palates is the Gobi Manchurian cauliflower, cooked with an Indo-Chinese sauce that demonstrates how capable Mumbai Grill is of translating the flavours of traditional Northern Indian cuisine (with its cross-border connections) to its cosy premises in Ferntree Gully.

We had a table for 8 we found service was good and friendly, food was very nice, everybody had something different and enjoyed their meals. Good sized meals there was plenty of food. We had a great time there we were the last to leave the restaurant they did not hurry us out. We will be returning.

The best North Indian restaurant I've been to in years. The chicken tikka massala is a standout. It's worth eating in, but the takeaway is also great.

The food is great and so is the service. The only problem for me was the restaurant was so hot that I found it very uncomfortable.

Delicious food and great suggestions by our waiter. Entree was served quickly but wait for main took a little too long. Definitely be back though.

Food was excellent, however the service was a little on the slow side. Over all, a nice dining experience and we would return there again.
