We returned to Macham after six months away for a Saturday lunch. We came back because, like then, we knew we would enjoy a delicious, well presented meal in a spacious well decked-out restaurant with soft Indian music and the personal attention of the owners. And we did. And we will come again.
Delicious food that is always consistently good and great value along with outstanding service. This family restaurant is a gem and it doesn't get much better than this.
Best Indian food I've ever had. I've never been that keen on Indian food until a colleague suggested Machan while working late. Now I've converted completely! Amazingly friendly/helpful staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Also a few amazing Vegetarian options to chopse from. Definitely worth a try!
Amazing, honest wholesome food coupled with superb service. Melbourne is lucky to have Machan restaurant!

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Machan tonight. Service was excellent as was the food.It is great having such a good indian restaurant in the suburbs.We will be back again soon
My family and friends love going to Machan. We are always warmly welcomed and always enjoy our meal. We love the food, which is always delicious and can't going very long without having a "Machan" night out. The atmosphere is fantastic being made to feel one of this lovely family who make sure every need is attended to.
My husband and I have been going to Machan Indian restaurant for at least 3 or 4 years now and they are - by far - the most consistant Indian restaurant we frequent! And we've been to nearly all of them in the Eastern/Northeastern suburbs! The atmosphere isn't anything flash, but they're lovely people who dish up consistantly delicious meals!
Tucked back from Eltham’s main drag is Machan Indian Restaurant, a solid local favourite. This welcoming restaurant, so full of colour, offers an ideal spot to relax and dine, be it noon or night. Service is obliging and the eclectic menu full of authentic Indian favourites, amongst them a myriad of tantalising curries, tender meat dishes and vegetarian delights, infused with delicately blended, homemade spices and nicely accompanied by homemade dips and chutneys. For a Machan Indian Restaurant feast, try the classic lamb rogan josh with flaky aloo paratha bread, making sure you save room for the succulent Machan prawns, a chef’s specialty.
