Tucked into Lyons Road, Ashokas Empire Indian restaurant caters to crowds of Drummoyne locals in search of an exotic feast close to home. Inside feels warm and inviting thanks to a mix of honey toned timber furnishings and hues of burgundy and sunset orange, while an intricately patterned mural on one wall dazzles with emerald greens in what looks like a grand palace doorway. Mouth-watering smells waft from the kitchen, hinting at dining to come with a heady combination of spices inspired by popular Indian cuisine. Find the likes of lamb cutlets seared with fresh garlic and ginger in a star anise and cinnamon marinade for starters, before indulging in a dish such as prawn Tamarindi Chemmeen, a specialty from a fishing village near Cochin or perhaps a goat Biryani with tomato and herbs.
