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 snacks like crab, heirloom tomatoes, yoghurt granita and rassum dressing, before taking a street tour through flavoursome temptations of Sher Wagyu Chettinad, eggplant, baby corn and onion achar. Those seeking a traditional curry can delve into a rich beef stew with young coconut and kaffir lime leaf, paired with basmati rice and cheese naan; be sure to save room for gulab jamun semifreddo with pistachio crumb, berries and peach sorbet.

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.

Top Notch!
If you like a restaurant that has a great atmosphere, fantastic food, friendly staff, excellent service and good advice on the menu's offering, then Elichi is the place to head for! Had a leisurely dinner with family from back home who were absolutely raving about the food and service by the time we left.

Great way to experience Indian food. Love the modern twist to traditional indian cuisine .
An amazing mordern take on some really popular traditional indian delicacies. Every elemnt on plate was bespoke. 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.
