Trendy fun modern Indian - attentive and knowledgeable service - some interesting new dishes- tandoori trout is world class - only slight negative was the butter chicken - chicken slightly overcooked and flavours not as balanced/special as other dishes. Very comprehensive wine list. Highly recommend.

I have been once before and never forgotten the experience. I took overseas visitors who are very fussy and it delivered everything I hoped for

Waitress had great knowledge and was very friendly. Was happy to talk about the menu and we didn't have to wait long for her service. Forgot her name but worked Friday evening, has short dark hair and possibly wears glasses(?). Please thank her for us

Always one of the few gems found in the alley ways of Melbourne. Every dish explodes with flavour. It’s our local favourite.

Very good tasty food with twist to traditional Indian cuisine. All dishes fresh, nicely presented. Very expensive though and can't really justify paying so much for still very good for but not jaw dropping food. Total cost for 5 people with 2 bottom shelf bottles of wine was 580 dollars, and we left hungry. Nice atmosphere inside and place is lively but overly buzzy.

I had waited a long time to visit Tonka and now I wish I had gone sooner. Food, wine and service seriously excellent.

About Tonka

One of Melbourne's finest Tonka is a modern Indian restaurant just off Flinders Lane, down one of Melbourne’s iconic laneways, Duckboard Place. At Tonka the team celebrate the vibrancy of Indian flavours complimented by their award winning wine list. Tonka first opened in 2013 and is the proud sister of Coda restaurant (just a short walk away). Since their inception, both venues have received the Age Good Food Guide’s ‘Hat Award’ every year - needless to say these guys know what they're doing. Welcome to Tonka.
