2nd time being to our “local” Indian place to try out different items in the menu. There are other Indian restaurants that I consider to be much better at this price point. Only dish I would highly recommend was the Rajasthani Laal Maas. The other dishes were not to our liking, specially the samosa chaat and chicken afgani. The chicken was over cooked and very rubbery.

A great place to enjoy fresh, expertly cooked, quality Indian food. The venue has a pleasant aspect, and great atmosphere. The wait-staff are attentive but not intrusive. I recommend this place for small numbers - couples and small family groups. We will go again.

Such a lovely place tucked away in Lavender bay! Service was flawless! The dishes were uniquely created and the flavour profile was spot on!! Beef Ularthiyathu was a favourite.

It’s a great little restaurant but there are too many tables. It’s very tight and becomes very very noisy especially with large tables. Less tables, no table over 6

Highly recommend Lavendra for a delicious meal, great service and beautiful view of the bridge. The lamb chops (starter) were the best we have ever had - the meat was very tender and cooked to perfection such that the bit of fat left on the chop just melted in your mouth. The goat curry was also fantastic with a great kick of spice. The mix of spices, high quality produce, flavour balance and refined cooking technique made this meal the best Indian meal I have ever had. The service was attentive and friendly and it was obvious the staff/owner were passionate about the food and delivering a high quality product and service. While on the pricey side, the price is justified (all things considered). I do wish it was a little cheaper so I could spoil myself more frequently.

Delicious food but the servings are a little on the small side for the price. To many tables for the size of the room. But overall we enjoyed the food very much. The view of the bridge and Luna Park are amazing
