    Very quick service on a Sunday night. Delightful outdoor table. House beer was refreshing. Tikka delish. Our other curry we ordered at the spiciest level available - far too spicy for us( and we usually eat food with a kick). Lovely staff. A+

    Top notch food, everything was absolutely delicious. Service was a boy slow but you can overlook that when the food was that good.

    Food was delicious, we had the fish & mango curry. Service was average- had to ask for water twice & had to ask for their attention. Would recommend going for 50%!!

    This was our first visit and we weren’t disappointed. We ordered a Vindaloo and Balti. Even for the spice enthusiast, the medium Vindaloo was lively but delicious. Attentive service, will definitely be back!

    Booked this restaurant using the '50% off food' deal. Great meal, level of spice was just right and very good value with the discount. Definitely look forward to a return visit.

    Buzzing restaurant! Service was good. Food was yummy and filling. Great for groups. Would say that the butter chicken was too rich for my tastebuds.

About the restaurant

The Final Frontier

The Colonial is the second of two uber-popular restaurants, with the latest addition gracing Sydney’s trendy eastside. With rich wooden furniture and opulent chandeliers that hark back to colonial grandeur, the interior really sets the tone for the British Indian cuisine you’re about to enjoy. The food is nothing less than avant-garde, drawing inspiration from colonial times and polishing them off with a contemporary crunch. It actually comes from India’s North-West Frontier Province as it was during British rule. This style is characterised by slow cooking veges and meats in clay pots, producing juicy tender food that retains the freshness of its original flavours. They do an array of tapas, both meat and vegetarian, influenced by flavours across India, as well as rich succulent curry mains. The prices? So good for what you’re getting! Even more so when you remember the magical ambience and fantastic service that comes along with it. Bring your friends; it’s time to do Indian, pommy-style.

Best Dish: Amritsari Malai Kofta
