I'm not a fan of Indian food so factor that bias into this review. I'm in Canberra for a few days and this restaurant is close to my hotel and I felt adventurous so I thought why not give the Indian cuisine another try. I went in at about 5:30 and the place, as expected, was almost empty. I was... More

Went there on Valentine's Day and even though it was extremely busy and fully booked the service and food was up to their normal high standard. Looking forward to going back soon.

Went there for dinner with friends on Sunday night. Restaurant was fairly full so suggest to make a booking if you can. Good food however the service could be better. But that is the case with all Indian restaurant for some reason. Overall enjoyable dining experience

We went to this Indian restaurant to have dinner, the food was awesome and delicious. We ordered, palak patta chaat as entree, mango lassi, in mains we order - garlic naan, malai kofta, kadhai paneer, all were too good in taste. We were two people and quantity was more than enough.. if you ordering just ask will it be sufficient..... More

Whenever we find ourselves in Canberra we always make our way to this fantastic Indian Cuisine Restaurant. Great staff, large portions, fantastic tasting food, excellent atmosphere (although our last visit we had nuisance children at the adjoining table). Highly recommended place to eat in Canberra.

Friendly staff and great food and well priced and the plates for the main came out of a plate warmer - a big plus for my money! Nothing worse than hot food served on cold plates - highly recommended.

We went first time to this restaurant during a recent visit to Canberra and we were not disappointed at all. The food was excellent, especially the chicken kebab dish (special of the day). We even took some more for home. The staff was courteous and the service was good. The restaurant was very busy during the time we went for... More

We have eaten here a few times. I love the food. It is always delicious and of a high standard. However, I will not be eating here again on a weekend. It is far too crowded and when someone at the table next to you is able to bump something on your table it is way too close. It is... More

Four of us sat down to the three course banquet. This represented reasonable value at $40 per head and we were full before dessert. The food was pretty good but service was slow through the evening - it was almost as if the staff had lost interest. There are some very good restaurants in Canberra so Blu Ginger is not... More
