The Only Place Indian Restaurant

Location: Shop 10 17-19 Stockton St Nelson Bay NSW 2315 Australia

The Only Place Indian Restaurant is Nelson Bays longest-running Indian establishment and has been serving the very best in Indian cuisine since 1998.



Indian cuisine is one of the oldest cuisines in the world. The diversity of Indian culture has brought together thousands of recipes that are shared among people from all states of India.

Every state, every city has its own unique style of cooking.

The Northern region of India enjoys the Mughal style of cooking, and is known for the richness of its dishes. South Indian cuisine is popular for their exotic spices and hotness. Coastal Indian dishes are heavily based around seafood.

All of these dishes vary from very mild to extremely hot. We have tried to take advantage of this diversity and variety to create a menu which will give you a taste of all these different style . Within this array of dishes we are sure everyone will finds something they will thoroughly enjoy.
