Curry Vault Indian Restaurant & Bar, Melbourne

The work guys wanted a catch up and since Mr Tequila has never tried Indian food before so of course we flipped through the Entertainment Book and found Curry Vault and made a booking via Dimmi. When we got inside we were shown to our seats. The interior wasn’t as lively or bright as I had remembered and needed a bit more vibrancy to it. Anywho, we got the menu and started ordering to our hearts content.

We got a lassi to try and this is one of the great options to pick from if you’re expecting spicy food since this is a yoghurt based drink. Very refreshing.

Lassi – $3.60

For the guys that love meat in our group, we got the Tandoori meat platter. Yep, the flavour was awesome, however, the meat itself were quite dry which was disappointing.

When you go to an Indian restaurant, you must always get Naan! It’s an Indian bread and you can get from plain to savoury ones too! They were absolutely amazing and i could just have that all night long.

We got a variety of curries from mild to spicy and meat to vegetarian ones. We found them to not be spicy at all (even though we ordered spicy). They were full of flavour but we felt that something was missing.

Now for the good part – DESSERT! We had every single dessert on the menu with Kulfi (Indian style ice-cream) to start off. Both the pistachio and the mango kulfi were AWESOME (we leaned more towards the mango one). The ice cream was a touch hard but it was awesome nonetheless.

Rice pudding? Yep this was FANTASTICAL too! Not overly sweet and just full of flavour

My absolutely favourite Indian dessert, Gulab Jamun which are dumplings in syrup. This can be overly sweet at some places but this was AMAZEBALL! Litte ball of clouds soaked in a sugary goodness. Definitely try these if drop by Curry Vault.

There were a lot of hit and misses here and we thought spicy would be super spicy but it wasn’t. That was a touch disappointing. We did love EVERY SINGLE DESSERT here (especially the balls!!) would definitely come back for their desserts.
