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.

Kokum Gold Coast

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.

From the Tandoor oven there’s the must-try Sambal Barramundi (with charred silverbeet and masala caviar) Pippali Chicken (lemon myrtle, paprika, cheddar and mountain pepper) or Broccoli Seekh (broccoli, rhubarb, zucchini, pineapple and kasundi).

Phir (Mains) are a real treat with the likes of Quail and Beef Kofta (quail eggs, vindaloo sauce, pickled onions and cauliflower puree), Goan Fish or Mangalorean Bugs (fresh local bugs marinated in chardonnay, lemon quinoa and coconut gassi) on offer.
