Food is fantastic, service is fantastic this is our third time back and even under new management it was great. Would be nice if they had a better selection of beer, corona, heineken etc.
Hi Ed, Thank you for enjoying Lavendra. In terms of beer - we've run out of demand for other beers after installing the tap for Kingfisher. Next time you book please let me know which beer you prefer and I'd be happy to organise this for you.

The menu was explained in detail which was helpful when choosing our meals. The food was delicious. I would highly recommend the chickpea salad if available.
Thanks Karyn, It was a pleasure to have you - see you again soon.

Impressive food. Very creative and fresh. The wait staffs are not experienced.

Really good food and a wonderful alternative to most other Indian restaurants who offer traditional, boring Indian food. Excellent service, great views and really great menu.
Thank you Gary, My training is in traditional Indian food and I've been operating Grace of India in Milsons Point with my father for a long time now! Lavendra dishes are items I've always wanted to put on a menu to reconceptualise the view on Indian food. Thanks for trying! See you again soon.

We visited recently taking advantage of the special. This was my 2nd visit. And to have recommended others who have loved the food The food is really good and offers a different slant to the Australian Indian restaurant The service is great The only problem we had was value. We had s table of 3 so when upping the serve. Price of entrees seem to be significant I the wine list is limited and pricey. Would recommend NYO
Hi Alli, Thank you for your thoughts and feedback. Next time you're in the restaurant please speak to the person taking your orders and we'll be able to help you get the most value out of your dining with us. See you soon.

About Lavendra

Lavendra is your ideal venue for a celebratory meal or a date with your special someone. With a formal dining room that offers views over the harbour to the Bridge and Luna Park, attentive staff and a warm atmosphere it’s not hard to see why this venue is loved by locals. Start with a few vegetarian and non-vegetarian entrees before hoeing into the mains. If you're here with a large group get around their banquet menu where all the choosing is taken care of.
