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

A new way of presenting Indian cuisine..finally! The dishes we had were complimented by the fresh, local produce used. The knowledge and understanding of staff to the food preparation and their willingness to share that was refreshing. Good service, great location and superb food. Who could ask for more?

The food was very tasty and authentic. Enjoyed the traditional Indian music playing in the background. The waitress was very polite and friendly. The people working on computers near the entry and their phones ringing over the music detracted from the experience.
