We have eaten here a few times and have always enjoyed the meals, it's unfortunate that it has been empty each time we have been so it lacks atmosphere, the host is great at making you feel at home and always throws in a few extras and service and price are good. One annoying thing was the tv was left... More

When I have a craving for Indian Chingari is always at the top of my list. Can be pricee depending on your selection but well worth it. I never leave feeling hungry.

We had many meals and takeaways from here. due to business and travel we have not been back for a while. On our last visit we were a bit disappointed.

Usually when we visit family in Nairne we get take away from Chingari, but tonight we decided to dine in. We loved the gracious hospitality and the atmosphere and, as usual, the food was delicious! Great service as well. A thoroughly enjoyable evening which we plan to repeat.

After moving into Nairne recently we decided to try Chingari. Not being a huge fan of Indian cuisine I felt at home as soon as we walked in. The host was such a lovely man and explained everything to us and was more than happy to chat and tell us some of his life stories. The food I have to... More

Have the highest praise for the Chingari. Authentic spices and dishes, nicely presented. A good range to satisfy any lover of fine Indian food, ranging from no heat to very hot - never to the detriment of flavour. My favourite is the lamb with spinach.

We both eat in and buy take away on a reasonably regular basis. I believe that the clims that it is the best Indian restaurant in Australia are 100% true. Service is excellent but the food is just another level above.
