Just had very disappointing meal at Indiyum. Chicken Tikka starter, chicken very tough, tasted ok. Main courses Mango Chicken and Chicken Jalfrezi. Both dishes appeared to use pre-cooked chicken that was then added to sauce. The meat in both dishes was very hard, not tender at all. Mango chicken dish tasted like tomato soup - very poor. Nan bread was... More

Hi there, we are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your meal with us. The Mango Chicken and Chicken Jalfrezi are both very popular dishes of ours, and most customers only have good things to say about these dishes and our naan breads, so we are a bit taken aback by your review. We do our best to provide... More

We booked our table online Don't do it. For some strange reason the booking goes to Brisbane & the restaurant in Caloundra doesn't know about it. However they were quite quick in accommodating us. So no worries there. I ordered the house Margarita, very nice . We ordered IndiMex: enchiladas & burritos both super delicious, best Mexican in years. Be... More

We visited this conveniently located and welcoming Indian restaurant tonight - this was a return visit following our first visit in Nov last year. On both occasions we have been impressed with the range of well priced and simply delicious food and encourage anyone who loves Indian cuisine or if you not tried Indian cuisine, to give this place a...

If you love a hot curry, check out the Beef Madras.... Very very tasty but scorchingly hot..... Believe them when they say it is very hot! .... My wife didn't and was calling for the Raita within two mouthfuls! Luckily for me I enjoy it hot so was very happy, it is something special!

We were highly impressed with our meals - lots of variety and plenty of spice. The location is also good, and the staff provided great service. There is also a BYO option and the meals were great value.

Would never go there even if it's the only place available. Went there with family and the whole experience was a disaster. The food sucks so does the service.

A balmy evening in Caloundra with sea breezes cooling the open area restaurant. We were not disappointed with this online deal. My wife & I enjoyed a mixed entree & a main each with delicious garlic naan & rice. The lamb korma & prawn & fish Masala were delicious. Although they had run out of cider we ended up with... More
