What a brilliant find!! Food was delicious; Mango chicken as our sweet dish and Lamb Saagwala as our savoury. Our kids chose from the kids menu which refreshingly didn't have nuggets as an option but wasn't all curry either. Service was fine, all boxes were ticked but not a lot of personality shown which seemed odd in a dining space... More

IndiMex-Indiyum, Owner at Indiyum Indian Restaurant, responded to this review

Qldonholiday, Thanks for your review! I wish I could say I designed the kids menu in mind with a 'no-nugget' policy...hardly any of my food involves anything battered or fried. When eating out, kiddies should be able to eat well-balanced meals but still enjoy their food, too. It's an ongoing battle. Have a great day, Chef GJ More

We made a dinner booking online to arrive to no table available other than one where the take aways were being taken and needed to be cleared etc. We left and went to another Indian restaurant in town that was lovely.

Thank Sarah T
IndiMex-Indiyum, Owner at Indiyum Indian Restaurant, responded to this review

Sarah, This was our error. We had an issue with our reservations system, which left us unprepared to seat reservations made within 30 minutes of booking with the amount of tables we had available. This is no excuse, and I'm sorry you and your guests were affected. Please call Indiyum's phone number (0754389688) and ask to speak to Sai, my... More

Do not be put off by the open to the street, rather basic but colourful look to this restaurant. We had two evening meals there over the course of three days, it was absolutely brilliant on both occasions, the staff are helpful and the food was amongst the best Indian food I have ever had. It is all about the... More

Martyn, Your kind words are appreciated. We take great care to use the most quality meats and the freshest ingredients to create an out-of-this-world culinary experience for our guests. Perfecting the blend of spices and flavors in our dishes isn't easy, and has taken a lot of hard work. Thanks again for your comment. It was a pleasure to read.... More

Melbourneeatc, I appreciate you mentioning the quality of the meat, as I've found over the years there's no substitute for choice cuts in any dish that features meat as its center. Don't rule out the possibility of an Indiyum coming to Melbourne. Take care, Chef GJ More

We had high hopes, but were a bit disappointed. The Seafood Tawa Stirfry was amazing and we would probably return just to have that again. However, the fajita was a bit of a disappointment. We didn't appreciate the indi-mex maybe, but it seemed like it was just tandoori chicken with some sautéed onions and peppers, a bit of guac and... More

Cari G., I appreciate your comments. Striking the doughy balance with naan is difficult - we have to give people something to chew on while still retaining the flavors used - and personal preference often does play a role. Still, I have taken your feedback under consideration about the naan and the fajitas. Thank you for stopping by our restaurant.... More

Best Indian we've found in Australia! Been in Sydney now 7 years, and travelled round oz and none compare. We've been on holiday in Caloundra for 6 nights, and been here 3nights for dinner! Delicious found, and great friendly staff/service.

I was really impressed with this restaurant/ cafe. I LOVE the tables there. So much colour and fun in the place. I'm still getting used to the muggy QLD weather and wondered if Indian was a great idea but it was perfect. There's a lovely sea breeze and I think the heat of the dinner evens everything out.

Indiyum are doing a lunch for just under $10 at the moment. We've had it a couple of weeks running as it's terrific value, with a curry of your choice, rice, raiti and salad. And it's up to the usual yummy high standard. Good work guys! we just love your curries!
