I had been here a few years ago and loved it so my friend re-booked it when I was back in town and we were meeting for lunch. Both of us love the aromas of Indian cuisine but neither of us can stand really hot...More

Subdued and elegant dining area with a broad menu. Inventive and flavoursome dishes. Not your everyday Indian cuisine.

Nothing better than a spicy curry on a cold night in Canberra. The dishes were all slightly different to other Indian places we have tried before but they all hit the mark. The service was quick with only 3 other tables full and a couple...More

I stepped into this little delight after a big day of sight seeing. I grabbed a takeaway Malai Kofta. It was awesome. Packed with flavours and the sauce was delicious.

Having tried various restaurants around Canberra, can safely say this is by far the best Indian restaurant. It’s not cheap, but the curries are truly delicious. The share appetiser is excellent also. Never had an issue with service here, always attentive and professional.

We were in Canberra for the Easter weekend. Happened to come across the Bollywood Masala for dinner on Easter Sunday. We had an amazing meal: mixed entree for two, Bollywood Leg of Lamb and Bollywood Masala Squid. Everything was delicious and really enjoyed the experience.

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...
