About the restaurant

A family-owned business since 2015 - DAANA is renowned for its delicious South and Regional Indian cuisine, the use of authentic recipes, fresh natural ingredients, and exceptional guest service. While DAANA is tucked away in the leafy suburb of Curtin, it is making its presence felt as one of the top dining experiences in Canberra - a little taste of India at Daana. The restaurant showcases textile and jewellery making traditions of Indian, tribal art murals and family heirlooms; making for an authentically Indian mood with a modern twist. Daana is a fused celebration of traditional South Indian and regional Indian cuisines with generous servings.

Chefs and owners Sunita and Sanjay passion for innovation and authenticity has got DAANA recognition by critics and peak industry bodies consistently over the last four years. DAANA is the first Indian restaurant from the nation's capital to receive top recognition at the Restaurant and Catering Association of Australia (RCA) Savour Awards – 2019 National Finals winning the Silver Awards in Best Indian/ Sub-Continent Restaurant Category.

This national-level success for DAANA is following their two award wins in the 2019 ACT Savour Awards for Excellence. DAANA picked up the awards for Best Indian Restaurant in Canberra (again – they also won the category in 2018) and for the first time won the 2019 Consumer Vote Awards. In 2017 the chef duo won Best New Restaurant in Canberra, which marked their first year in business, they won this from other well-regarded finalists like The Otis Dining Hall, Agostinis Italian and Pollen Cafe.

DAANA has also been Finalists in the ACT Chief Minister Inclusion Awards in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

More recently DAANA won an AGFG (Australian Good Food and Travel Guide) 2020 Reader's Choice Awards.
