There’s Indian food, then there’s exotic, northern Indian cuisine. Cullen Bay is not exactly neighbouring that specific region, but dinner at Exotic North Indian will take you pretty close – in spirit anyway.
Enjoy watching the sunset from the beach, then stroll back to your table to take in the wonderful views of the marina. Start with a cold drink from the menu with ciders, beers, wine and spirits and, of course, the essential mango lassi to cool down the spicier dishes.
Exotic North Indian brings the rich flavours of Punjab and the north of India to the marina, with all of your favourite Indian classics, plus some distinctive regional favours too. The menu is designed with locally sourced produce in mind and focuses on fresh, quality ingredients and authentic Punjabi recipes and techniques.
Dishes range from tasty samosas and tandoor snacks to spicy vindaloos, curries, mango beef, creamy butter chicken and the more decadent seafood options, such as Amritsari fish or Punjabi prawns. Or try some succulent tandoori dishes straight out of the fire. All of that of course needs the essential side dishes of rice, warm Indian breads, sauces and sweets, followed by a soothing spiced cup of chai to end the meal.
Families are welcome, and functions and catering bookings are also possible. Exotic North Indian can be found on Marina Boulevard at Cullen Bay, amid the gently bobbing boats and twinkling lights of the private marina. The restaurant opens at 5pm every day and reservations are welcome. Join the team at Exotic North Indian and enjoy being welcomed to share in their culinary traditions. Experience the many exotic spiced dishes that bring a piece of north India to Darwin and learn just how unique and spectacular Indian food can really be.
