Not a good example of Indian food - felt unwell took a long time to digest as it gave me heartburn- not good

Dined in almost every Indian restaurant in Cairns, and no dish i've tried compares to there Lamb Jalfrezi. Generous portion size with a plentiful amount of succulent lamb pieces. Would highly recommend to anybody seeking quality Indian.

Another best kept secret in Cairns. Nice and tasty quality Indian food. Tandoori chicken was full of flavour and cooked to perfection, not the usual dry reheated stuff you very often get in other supposedly first class Indian restaurants. We also had a delicious lamb Roganjosh and a Fish coconut fry, some garlic Naans and Raita. All in all, if... More

Really good value for money, fed 2 hungry people for $40. Free delivery is offered but wait time was going to be 90 minutes so we picked up. The restaurant itself is not very glamorous and it's in Earlville which is a way out of town, but for take-away I would definitely recommend.

The Chicken Tikka Masala is first-class, and the speed of service is amazing. Although it's a little out of the city, the quality of the food outweighs this minor inconvenience.

We tried this restaurant on the advice of some friends and we were very surprised. The food was amazing especially the Vegetable Jhalfrezi which was my dish of the night. If you are looking for some authentic Indian in the Cairns region then this is certainly the place to try. We ordered from Menulog and received a 10% discount on... More

Which ever part of the world you go to, there will always be a Good Indian Restaurant. We were holidaying in Cairns last week and we found Delhi Tadka right opposite to our accommodation. Food was good, decent quantity and prices were also mid range. What impressed me was their service, we ordered a pick-up and they forgot to add... More

A new Indian restaurant is always a gamble as I find that they generally fall in to two categories: terrible or amazing. Delhi Tadka fortunately was amazing. We had a mixed entrees to share and it was simply stunning. Surely with how good it was the mains couldn't live up to expectation? But they did! One of the best kormas... More

We went here because we didn't feel like cooking and just got takeaway. Since moving to Cairns, we have been looking for a good Indian restaurant and feel like we have finally found one! It's probably a bit more than I would prefer to pay for a curry, but it was definitely worth it because we wanted a curry so... More

My husband and I ate there on a Tuesday night so we pretty much had the place and the waitress to ourselves. I'd tried the Butter Chicken when I was there last and was as delicious as I remembered it. My husband ordered the vegetarian Eggplant dish which was also delish. Just as well we ordered 2 x lots of... More
