The Colonial British Indian Restaurants; A British Sydney Tourist Attraction. The Poms Have Voted!

June 30, 2018

The Colonial British Indian Restaurants are found in the region of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia. Locals and tourists of Sydney feast on a robust blend of eastern spice and western cuisine at two popular locations; The Colonial Darlinghurst and The Colonial Neutral Bay.


Today we’ll look at why British travellers and British expats living in Sydney are giving The Colonial restaurant the travellers choice for Indian dining in Sydney.


From inception; The Colonial has been remastering the British Indian culinary flavours to bring you what some guests call “the best British Indian curry house in Sydney”.


Found spread across the UK, a range of British-Indian curries and flavours are being served up as the Brits’ toast to their national dish of Indian curry with hot chips. Why wouldn’t they love a delicious curry any time of year?


Most traditional Indian restaurants across Sydney more than likely do not serve hot chips as a side on the Indian dining menu. Traditionally, UK curry houses and Indian restaurants would serve chips on a menu – simply put; it’s the way the Brits’ do it.

Hot chips at an Indian curry house in Sydney is now possible, you just need to visit The Colonial Darlinghurst or The Colonial Neutral Bay to enjoy a side of hot chips; perfect as dippers' to your main Indian curry dish and sauce.

Like most cuisines, flavours, cooking technique and style will differ from city to city, region to region – and there is no exception to the rule. Today, Australia celebrates The Colonial Restaurants as one of the most popular British Indian curry houses in Sydney and North Sydney regions!

“At little taste of British Indian. After years of searching for what seemed to be the holy grail, I can happily say we have found it - a truly British style Indian restaurant, one of which blends the traditional with the new and serves it all up in a charming manner. We as a group have found our Indian! fantastic food, brilliant staff, and great location. Do yourself a favour and try it out
