    Ish is a lovely little place with some very yummy dishes. My friends and I had a great time catching up over dinner at Ish. They have a nice selection of wines, the service was very good and the food was full of flavour. I would recommend getting the entree scallops. Super tasty.

    Surely one of the best places in Melbourne for smart, contemporary Indian food. Also love the hospitable service and hip location. The manager is very friendly and helpful

    This was an excellent meal. Amazing service on the night we went by all the waiters. Good wine, which was picked out for us. Thank you to all the staff, you were the highlight of our time there.

    The food was delicious and the service staff was extremely attentive. Only point to note is they should give the guests a bit of space to chat, there really is such a thing as being too attentive. I loved every dish tho~

    Pretty disappointed. Food was very expensive for the quality. Setting and service was good - no issues to note. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this place to others. You could easily find a much better meal elsewhere for a lot cheaper.

    We had our lunch at Ish and it was a tremendous experience of Indian fine dining. Service is A-class and food was delicious. Must try tandoori chicken tikka & butter chicken. Gulab Jamun tiramisu is special to finish with something sweet. Thank you for beautiful experience Ish. We will be back again.

    Great service and great, friendly people)! food is good and innovative with Indian influence.it is a sort of fusion that I never tried and it worths the value to taste, I was suggester to try thy the duck and it was fantastic. Even the selection of wines by the glass was very interesting: I'll go there again.

    We found Ish after reading reviews online and were not disappointed. It is situated on a gorgeous Melbourne Street called Gertrude in Fitzroy.. The building is very pretty and has had a thoughtful fit out. We took our son for dinner for his 25th birthday tonight and the food, ambience and service were outstanding. It was recommended to choose one dish from three parts of the menu for our party of three and this was the perfect amount of sharing plates for us. We enjoyed the eggplant, potato dumplings, moelli curry, naan bread & rice - all delicious. We also shared a baked coconut cake for dessert. The attention to detail by the maitre’d, his friendliness and professionalism carried down throughout our wait staff. We look forward to our next visit when we’re back down from Sydney. 10/10!

    The welcome and explanation of the menu and assistance with food choices was friendly, measured and accurate. Really nice people here. Wine list was exceptional across the range with plenty of “by the glass” choices. Food high flavour values. Really enjoyed this place.

    Amazing food. Atmosphere and staff not inviting. Definitely recommend the beef curry. Drinks were over priced. Location is great if you want to start your night in Collingwood.

    Busy place but the acoustics were great so the noise levels were fine. Extremely delicious & creative food. Very generous servings. Lovely unaffected service.

    We are visiting from Sydney and were blown away by the whole Ish dining experience. Loved how it isn’t the usual run of the mill Indian. The food is the notch above and delicious. The eggplant is amazing, as were the prawns, the beef curry (couldn’t believe the v generous serving) and the butter chicken with a twist. Absolutely delicious! Great atmosphere too. Highly recommended - please open another one in Sydney!!
