About Elichi

For modern Indian cuisine that is second to naan, Black Rock diners head to Elichi on Bluff Road. Meaning cardamom in Indian, this sister restaurant to Babu Ji in St Kilda and Hawthorn's Piquancy, rocks a sleek fit-out of charcoal tones, black leather and blond timber to set the mood for intimate dining and cocktails with an Indian twist. Get creative with street snacks like fried puff pastry balls filled with mashed potatoes and chickpeas, before taking a culinary tour through flavoursome temptations of housemade samosas and the motherland’s version of nachos. Those seeking a traditional curry can delve into a tangy and fiery pork vindaloo sprinkled with crispy pork chicharron, paired with basmati rice and cheese naan; be sure to save room for gulab jamun with berries and peach sorbet.

Excellent food, friendly staff, fantastic ambience. Like the place very much. It is undoubtedly the best Indian Restaurant in Melbourne


Wonderful atmosphere with great interior. They served the best quality food with lots of variety. Their platters are really delicious and fulfilling yet very reasonable. Moreover their staff is very prompt and hospitable. I highly recommend anyone who loves Indian food with modern twist to go visit the place. Loved their ecstatic ambience and cordial hospitality.

The taste notes are to savour for anyone who enjoys contemporary cuisne with suttle nuances of Indian Culinary roots. I won't be surprised if Elaici makes it to best Indian restaurant in Melbourne over a very short time.
