About Nirankar Restaurant

Offering an enticing range of modern Indian and Nepalese dishes, Nirankar Restaurant has been an enduring Melbourne favourite for more than two decades. Located on Queen Street, Nirankar's polished wooden floors and painted walls create a warm, contemporary setting, while friendly service keeps things down to earth. A plate of steamed momo (traditional Nepalese dumplings served with sweet chutney) are an ideal starter to share, while the mixed lentils and roasted eggplant sautéed with cumin seeds, delight both meat-lovers and vegetarians alike. The Chef’s signature dishes include the likes of succulent diced lamb curry, tossed with seasonal vegetables and herbs; or tuck into a heart-warming Indian classic such as chicken tikka masala, paired with coconut basmati rice and garlic roti.

Delicious good and good ambiance



best one!


Tasty food excellent staff - aloo goobi the best in Australis! Will come again


I really like the food. It is very tasty. And the service there is great.


As an ex-pat "Pom" I do enjoy a good curry and this place didn't disappoint. We sampled a number of dishes (all good) and although I normally enjoy a reasonably hot curry, the mild Chicken Pistachio Korma was a standout, with beautiful flavours. (The wife's choice.)
Will definitely return to sample more.
