Palazzo Versace

Kokum is the Gold Coast’s finest Indian restaurant, nestled on the waterfront within the Palazzo Versace complex at Main Beach.

Worth a trip from Brisbane alone for its signature to-die-for dish Sambal Barramundi, Kokum serves up exquisite Indian fare with a creative twist that is totally next level.

Diners can start with a drink on the terrace overlooking the beautiful broadwater and snack on delights like Papdi Chaat (Indian street nachos, tofu, pineapple, avocado and cumin yoghurt), Potli Samosa (beef, shortcrust pastry, galangal, eucalyptus and sesame jam) or Shrimp Bhaji (shrimp, onion, samphire and peanut chutney). Or try some freshly shucked Sydney rock oysters with finger lime, fresh cracked pepper and mint or Malibu and coconut foam.
