Indian Mehfil


Indian Mehfil is one of Ipswich’s longest standing and most popular restaurants – for good reason.

Housed in a grand heritage-listed 19th century building on the edge of the Top of Town historic precinct, Indian Mehfil serves up top notch authentic Indian dishes in an ornate old world high-ceilinged dining room.

The mixed platter (a delectable assort of vegetarian and meat dishes such as samosa, pakora, murg malai tikka and cutlets) makes a great starter as does the tandoori chicken tikka or drumsticks.

For mains it’s hard to go past the Butter Chicken (one of the best around) and Goat Curry (tender and flavoursome), while a choice of popular curries include Rogan Josh, Masala, Korma, Madras or Vindaloo.
