Not far from the Corio Bay Foreshore Reserve is Geelong’s go to location for authentic Indian dining, House of Shalimar. A royal red interior, floral carpets and golden embossed chairs are enough to make new entrants feel like a king about to sit down to a feast. A lengthy menu has something to suit all palates and embodies a focus on Southern Indian cuisine, like the alluring chicken 65 with spicy deep fried chicken typical of the Chennai region, cooked with curry leaves and served with onion rings and lemon. Classics abound, like the tender butter chicken, marinated overnight in yoghurt and aromatic spices, not to mention the popular Hyderabadi chicken biryani, or for a legitimate taste of Shalimar, opt for the Shalimar goat biryani. A lassi is great as a cold, palate cleansing drink.
