Great experience for dining in or catering for large groups in the restaurant and different venues. Detail in presentation of dishes. ????????A rare Indian restaurant


Best Indian Cuisine in Sydney
The best Indian cuisine that Sydney has to offer. Would highly recommend everyone to try at their beautiful restaurant in Terry Hills. From traditional taste to unique presentations Urban Tadka has everything covered. They are consistent with their quality, service and commitment. They have hosted a few events for us and can say they are the best.


Simply Awesome
Just one word “excellent” every one of our 400 guests applauded our choice of caterer. Will never look for anyone else anymore.


Traditional Indian dining with a modern twist
Urban Tadka (UT as we lovingly call it) has a very special place in my heart as we hosted our son’s first birthday at this wonderful restaurant. 8 years on, we have experienced many a flavours of UT - Fine Indian Dining, Private parties to celebrate key life events and their catering at premium external venues in Sydney. They lead with sophisticated service which is supplemented by well presented delicious food. My family joins me in wishing UT continued success.


My Kind of Place
Surely our best local Indian . So proud of the entire Team


Finest indian in sydney.

Best of the Best


Zapped with the flavors and the setting of the restaurant. Its an absolute treat to have a venue of this caliber in Sydney..!!!


In my opinion one of the finest signature INDIAN restaurant in Sydney or rather Australia. Amazing presentation of modern yet authentic Indian delicacies with impeccable service over outstanding location and ambiance. would highly recommend anyone who stands for die hard Indian food.





Restaurant by far a top notch indian with scrumptuous food and classy presentation. Ambience par excellent than any other indian in sydney .. ??????????



This is a great hidden treasure. Have dined here a few times. Outstanding food and always seems to be frequented by various Indian families which gives a real positive indication. Kids welcome here too


Coming from England, expectations are very high on Indian food, this is by far the best in the area, the Lamb balti gosh is excellent and as good an indian dish as you will get anywhere. The only areas for improvement would be to have much more variety to the menu and more spicy curries, such as a Chicken Jalfrezi, and also add Onion Bhajis to the menu.


Tell us about your experience...fantastic is the word for this amazing indian restaurant who is doin wonders under the guidelines and super management of my local buddy Mr dimpy singh who has always known for his top credentials in this industry. cheers to you and your team mate for taking this project of yours to sky high'. THE FOOD IS JUST OUT OF THIS WORLD. cheers.


Yummy food. Great service. Bit noisy




Always very yummy food. Not too oily. When you are ordering halve what you think you will eat. The background music tends to be too loud when they are busy, otherwise, a lovely place to go. We have been going here when there are family birthdays, for a couple of years now.


We always have great experience at Urban Tadka, they are consistently great with their food and service and ambience is awesome. Highly recommended



Awesome food and really good & quick service..


good selection great service. perfect place to satisfy your hungry stomach.


The ZAIKA of food should be like URBAN tADKA..hip hip hurrrrey??????


it was a great experience and i strongly recommend it - great food service staff


Awesome Experience its the best in SYDNEY!!!


The finest dining experience I have had in a long time.. If I were to describe it in a few words, they would be simply finger licking good..


One of the best Indian food I ever had here... Bhushan


one of its kind indian restaurant... Food is special and setup is amazing... Will always keep going back everytime I am in sydney


Having been to Urban Tadka quite a few times I find the food to be of very high quality and incredibly delicious. Some special menu items are different to the normal range of curries you find at your local Indian restaurant. The venue is off the main strip of restaurants but well worth the deviation.


Unlike any other Indian restaurant in Sydney. Unique location and inspirational menu. A centre of excellence.


Amazing food - traditional Indian with a modern twist. The setting is lovely. Service is friendly and efficient. Great value for money and deserves recognition.


Excellent experience every time we have been there. Never disappointed with any aspect of Urban Tadka. The north shore needed a quality Indian restaurant of this calibre.


An outstanding indian restaurant with excellent food, well designed ambience and world class service, indeed the best Indian restaurant in Australia by a big margin, a trend setter in indian cuisine – Micky Bains



Excellent is the word for this hidden Indian gem in a tranquil location..By far the best Indian flavours we had in Australia..



Indian restaurant with a class of its own. Ambience, food , flavours and presentations .. never seen before.. par excellence compared to any Indian cuisine in Sydney.
