    It’s the second time I’ve been here - the first time was great. This time the service was terrible, they didn’t seem to care, the food was ordinary and they charged $3.00 for a small bowl of fresh chopped chilli! Really disappointed and won’t go back - what’s happened!

    They claim to be "inauthentic Indian" - however, it is authentically delicious, so well cooked! The service was good and not rushed, and the gin cocktail with curry leaf was just lovely. Can't wait to go back again

    Fantastic food and great venue. The "thali" lunch is fantastic value for money. For those going in a group, the payment option is also great where we queue up and pay for our own meal :)

    Amazing, super vegetarian friendly, been multiple times for both special occasions and to take family. We always get the ‘tasting menu’, the golgappa and the kulfi dessert are to die for. the service amazing, great drinks too, oh and thanks for the lovely candlelit gulab jamun for our anniversary!!!

    Always an outstanding dining experience, from food and drink to service. And the music is pretty entertaining too. Make sure you book as it's super popular.

    Everything was just too cramped, too many people on a very small table. Food was fine but everything was very rushed, more or less pushed out the door as soon as we finished eating. Certainly not conducive to a relaxing meal.

    It was our first time at Daughter In Law and we will be back. Couldn't fault anything at all. From the time we walked through the doors to the time we walked out. Thanks for a fabulous night

    Good food but too pricey for the value.

    The staff here were excellent. When I asked to change my booking from 2 to 4 people, the immediately found space for us. Busy night for them, food was great, although the cauliflower specialty was too spicy and a bit oily for me.

    Food was all delish! Would lightly recommend the tasting menu which I had changed to vegetarian no problem! Staff lovely too. Cocktails were also amazing!

    Food was good, not too spicy so it will cover wide palettes. Location and ambiance are good as well. Always crowded so make sure to reserve beforehand.

    Delicious food - especially the cauliflower - and very friendly service, despite our messy toddler and two rude members of our party. We'll be back to work our way through the rest of the menu!

    The restaurant is beautiful but found it way too expensive for the quality and portion of food plus they have limited cocktail variety and vegetarian options

    Good food. Tandoori chicken was great! But rest of the dishes (palak paneer, coconut prawns) were ok. Baked fish for a small piece of fish was truly overpriced. I’ve had better in Melbourne. Will I be going back? No. In comparison I’d go back to Ish in Fitzroy any day.

    Loved it! The food was fantastic and the vibe and decor were unique. Daughter in Law is an excellent addition to this part of town.

    I was so excited after having been to their sister restaurant in New York. However, the food was so sweet, it was barely edible and the only Indian flavor detected was curry seed. Although this is innovative Indian cuisine, it should be more flavorful. Wouldn’t recommend.

    One of the best Indian restaurants in Melbourne. The food, service, music and ambience all was absolutely sensational. Look forward to coming back again and again and again! ????????
