Great tasting Indian food and very reasonably priced. Friendly service. We've been before and will definitely be going again.

Went on Good Friday, unfortunately they were serving only a limited menu which was quite disappointing as a first experience. Ordered the Butter Chicken, Lamb Saag, Lamb Masala and Chilli Garlic Chicken, 3 Butter Naan, 1 Roti, 4 steamed rice and 3 Kingfishers between 4 people. I'm more of a Korma girl myself but it wasn't on the limited menu so the Butter Chicken had to suffice. It was actually really tasty. The Lamb Saag was also good, not too spicy and the lamb was very tender. The bill came to $35 per head which is pretty good! Would recommend, and I shall definitely return on a non public holiday evening to sample the full menu.

We thought we'd try Desi Dhaba before heading to a gig at the Forum Theatre. Although the service was a little chaotic and several staff came to clarify our order, staff were friendly and the food was delicious. There was an error with our order which was proactively rectified without us having to ask - always a nice touch! I would eat here again.

About Desi Dhaba

Late Night Curry Cure Street-style Indian food (along with some quirky décor) — that’s what you’ll find at Desi Dhaba on bustling Flinders Street in Melbourne. With a range of seating options that make it ideal for small or large groups, Desi Dhaba is open late and always lively. There’s a banquet menu and a function area, making it a good fit for your next big gathering. You’ll find a selection of affordable and tasty wines along with mouth-watering dishes. Starters include Amritsari fish, which is marinated rockling fried in spiced chickpea batter and served with chutney. There are ample options for vegetarians and vegans with everything from charcoal-roasted eggplant curry to slowly simmered lentils or homemade paneer cooked in a flavourful tomato sauce. There’s enough curry to keep you coming back for weeks without ordering the same thing twice, plus there’s a children’s menu. If you’re looking for friendly late-night dining on Flinders, check out Desi Dhaba. Best dish: Punjabi chicken
