I got some takeaway, not sure if they've reinvented dishes or just do less well-known ones, but their star beef dish was good with lots of spinach. Started off well but could have done with more spice and flavour. Very expensive but must be one...More

At the end of a long day, dinner at Bollywood Masala is like home-coming and a sophisticated outing combined. Arjun is the perfect host with a very sharp wit. The atmosphere is always great and the variety of dishes and flavours is spectacular. I have...More

I've eaten in India and this offers me the same complexity and taste I'd expect there - and the menu has a bit more variety than you'd expect in Australia. You'll also find some Indian street food that's often not on our local menus. I've...More

This place is amazing, we went there with our children and ordered the banquet. We tried food we would not normally pick and loved it. The staff were accommodating and explained the dishes. A place definately to eat at.

Most of our meal was delicious but my partner and I were not very happy when the biryani contained large chicken bones, we've never had this before in a biryani. Corkage of $10 was excessive too.

Food was very good. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Went mid week with work friends. I was surprised, we were the only customers.

Bollywood Masala Kingston has now been open for a year. In that time, we have won the prestigious Restaurant and Catering Best Indian/sub-continent ACT Award 2013. This proves that our award winning effort at Dickson has been successfully transferred to our Kingston restaurant. We are not a franchise and Arjan and his team personalise each establishment to suit our customers needs and to continuously improve given the regular feedback we get and appreciate and learn from.Many customers continue to describe us as the best Indian restaurant in Canberra; better than the food they've tasted in India! Such compliments don't make us complacent. They push us to try even harder. So come and visit us and decide for yourself. Our usp is maintaining indian cooking traditions that have withstood the test of time, while tailoring ourselves to being a modern indian restaurant in the Australian context.In addition to dine-in we also do catering for in-house or off-site events, as well as take-away of course. We have an extensive variety of vegetarian options, and can suitably cater for other dietary requirements, including gluten free. So call us or visit our website to book and we look forward to seeing you soon and again, and again, and...
