After reading mixed reviews about this place and the other Indian restaurant nearby, we decided to try Marinades. We were seated promptly, served quickly, and the food arrived without much delay. We were very pleased with our dishes and enjoyed them very much. Reasonable price and we will come back again.

Nice food, very fast service which means likely the food is already cooked ready to serve, which is alright seen it still tastes amazing! Shame the meals don't come with complimentary pappudums. Highly reccommened for a nice meal in cairns.

An extensive menu all reasonably priced, I even ordered something that was not shown but the chef was happy to make. In the background, in the open kitchen, you could watch the chefs making the...

Our original choice of venue two doors away was closed for a function so we decided to give this Marinades a try. It started well, we were seated quickly. Our order was taken quite quickly also.
