My family and I picked this restaurant based on its reviews and also the menu on the website. The idea of being able to get an Indian curry and Mexican food in the same place appealed to our party. Unfortunately when we arrived at the restaurant it soon became clear that there was no Mexican food on the menu! Please... More

Hello Mel, thanks for your review. After a brief hiatus mid-last year, our IndiMex menu is now always available. Not sure why it would seem not to be. Everything on the menu on our website is available to order. As for our curries not being as "flavourful" as your local curry restaurant in Brisbane, well there is no such thing... More

Best garlic Naan I have ever, ever tasted. The title says the rest, $150 of inedible food. At least the 2 Johnny red scotch and dry were drinkable.

Forget the tacky name and fair dinkum promo, this is a superb little restaurant serving excellent food. The cottage cheese curries were the best I have ever eaten. Simply delicious and over Christmas/new year was a very busy place (so book).

After reviewing TripAdvisor comments, we bought take-away from Indiyum - my wife had the butter chicken - large chunks of chicken breast in rich & tasty sauce which was delicious and I had the lamb saagwala which was truly excellent - again, large chunks of lamb in the most delicious spinach sauce. Although take-away, this was seamless in service and... More

My wife and I may be very fortunate, as we live within walking distance of GJ Singh's Brisbane eatery "IndiMex" and frequently stay at Caloundra, within walking distance of its sister restaurant here. Indiyum is an absolute treasure of a place. Anywhere which can cater to a devout fan of Indian spices (me) and someone still getting used to the... More

Wow, Professionalwanderer, that's a lovely review, thank you so much. It's very heartening to read such comments, particularly as you and your wife are pretty much IndiMex/Indiyum aficionados! Who knows us better than a regular customer of both our restaurants?! The staff will really appreciate your review as they work hard and do their best to make everyone happy. We... More

Had a birthday meal here , it was heaving , good curries , good service and they went out of their way to supply dish not on menu for a fussy member of our party , only disappointment were the poppadoms , Fresh and crispy is the way to go !

Thanks, Mick, I trust the birthday celebrations were wonderful. Not sure what happened with the poppadoms as they are usually a hit with our customers. In any case, we look forward to seeing you again, any time :). More

Met some friends here for dinner. Was a little perplexed by the menu. A very heavy Mexican influence - but we just steered clear of that. We all ordered chicken tikka as an entree and that was pretty good. Mint sauce was quite nice. Not a great variety of traditional Indian entrees on offer. Garlic naan was great with extra... More
