About Kahaani

Say Namaste to sharing-style fare made with love and passion at Kahaani Indian restaurant on trendy Lygon Street in Carlton. A moody vibe awaits with subdued lighting, suede walls adorned with pottery plates and exposed brick, ideal for a romantic rendezvous or catch-up with friends. Be transported to the streets of India with an authentic menu showcasing cuisine from the varied regions; think starters like juicy spiced fried chicken, fresh kasundi and red chilli salsa, or slow-braised lamb mince in a pav bun with salsa and herbs. From the tandoor come dishes of marinated lamb chops, or fire-grilled King prawns, with curry leaf butter and gun powder; while classic curries such as rustic smoked chicken or coconut prawn always satisfy, with sides of steamed rice, papadums and garlic naan.
