Seriously, this is Next Level Indian Food. Possibly the best Indian meal I've tasted in Australia. Amazing flavours and combinations of spices.

simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
