    This place was exceptional. My friend hasn't eaten much Indian food before and was wary. She loved all of it. Great chicken korma, wonderful cheese garlic nan bread and the best chicken tikka I have ever had. So good in fsct that we ordered a second helping. The waiteess was very friendly and took an interest in us. This place is a must!

    I have visited Avrah about 3 times now. We have ordered something different with each visit. On this occasion we ordered the beef Kashmiri, chicken madras, amritsari kulcha and cumin & peas pulao. Everything was delicious. We will visit again.

    The food was delicious, we ordered the lamb biryani, it came out in a clay pot covered by a pastry sheet, which we have never seen before. Staff was friendly. Definitely recommend it.

    Probably the best Indian food in Melbourne. Second time here, and they're still delicious. Service is amazing as well.

    Consistently good dishes that are well presented and full of flavor. A friend who eats very spicy food is yet to be challenged by the vindaloo and is supplied with a green chili paste to make it hotter! Chicken tikka and Naans the favorite for those not liking spicy food as well as the goat cheese chicken. Another favorite is the cashew and raisin pulau to go with the curries we ordered as this rice dish isn’t something that is found at other Indian restaurants. Been here many times now and food quality and service remains consistently good.

    The food was incredible! We had the onion bhaji, palak paneer, aloo Chhole and Daal Double Tadka. Everything was so delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful with letting us know how much to order for a table of 4. Great ambiance.
