About Ameer

Indian restaurant Ameer on Leake Street has been tempting Essendon locals with traditional dishes of the Mughlai region since 1985. This award-winning establishment offers a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy crowd favourites among colourful tapestries and warm lighting, suited to both family dining and intimate occasions. Exotic dishes adapted from centuries old recipes are cooked in the earthen oven – a large clay pot, pre-heated on charcoal for about four hours designed to cook marinated meats and baking fresh bread. Hot and steamy Tandoori platters are favoured among loyal locals, or simply order popular dishes like a tender chicken tikka or spicy lamb cutlets to excite your tastebuds. Cool down after mains with a mango kulfi Indian ice-cream for dessert or enjoy gulab jamun dumplings.

Exceptional quality and value Thank you



Our favourite Indian restaurant in northern suburbs. Thanks Ameer's we love you.


You can't keep us away. Staff are very friendly and attentive. We are regular diners and are always greeted warmly.


Without doubt the best Indian food I have ever eaten. Excellent service and enjoyable atmosphere. Thank you so


Dropped in for a meal before a flight, was expecting the usual fare at neighbourhood Indian. Was at first dismayed by the small serves for $20 mains, but the portions turned out to be perfect. The curries were DELICIOUS. The chicken saag was outstanding, the best I've ever eaten, and their lamb vindaloo was great a well, not as hot as I'd like but you could tell they'd used fresh spices, not a mix. Friendly staff, decor usual over the top but cozy and welcoming, will definitely dine again.


Excellent service, good food ... even got a nice surprise for me bday !


It is a rare treat that you find a restaurant where you can actually hear the person at the other side of the table, where the service is efficient and hospitality is alive. We recently celebrated an 80th birthday with family and while it is a regular venue the staff made this extra special on the night. The food is excellent and full of the delicate flavours associated with Indian cuisine. The owner comes to each table to ensure the food is up to standard and is basically the commensurate host. For suburban dining with a sense that they really care about the customer experience you cannot go wrong.Many thanks yet again for a fantastic evening and have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to our friends for quality food, great hospitality and very reasonably priced. (Would recommend the Rogan Josh and Butter Chicken in particular though have not had a disappointing mealy yet). Keep it up Ameer!!


Food is delicious. Ambiance is relaxed and cosy. Some lovely Indian art on walls. Staff are friendly and attentive. We visit often and have introduced many others over the years, who are now also regular patrons.


Great local family owned restaurant that's been the same great quality and value for years. Good atmosphere but not overtly loud, no kids running around and people shouting across tables. Civilised !
