Enjoy UK-style Indian Food in Sydney

The Colonial offers a new dining experience, flavours of the long forgotten cuisines of Undivided India’s North-West Frontier Province. The province was named North-West Frontier Province during the Colonial Period of undivided India under the British Rule. The Delectable Cuisine from this area can be best defined as rustic and robust.

Our Cuisine
The Colonial Restaurants serve a unique menu inspired by the Anglo- Indian curry houses in the UK in stylish and fashionable Sydney locations. The Cuisine uses the simplistic style of preparation, where chunks of meat, seafood and vegetables are marinated and cooked in the Clay Tandoor at high temparatures so that they remain succulent and tender. The rustic-ness of this cuisine and the focus of preserving the flavours of the ingredients is the highlight of this cuisine.

Being a British Indian living in Sydney for 3 years, I'm used to excellent Indian food.
And for the first time in 3 years of living here and eating out a lot, I had excellent Indian food here.
