If you’ve ever tasted Indian food, then you know that this cuisine is filled with flavourful spices and exotic tastes that can take you to a completely different world of culinary delight. The unique characteristic of Indian flavour with its perfect balance of various spices sets it well apart from many other international cuisines, giving you a sense of confidence that a dish you’re tasting is indeed Indian, even without being told.
Curry Corner, Melbourne’s original and most well-known Indian food shop offers a menu of hot and fresh food, enough to make your mouth water just at its aesthetically-pleasing and palatable sight. Once you’ve tasted anything at all on the menu, you’re sure to experience that harmony of beautiful and complex flavours that will leave you coming back for more.

Curry Corner is so famous for its samosas that part of its clientele consists of movie celebrities and politicians from different countries who happen to be visiting Australia, and wouldn’t leave without having their fill of Mrs. Sharma’s delicious version of these warm, triangular pies roughly the size of a fist.
Savoury pies with flaky dough wrapped around a generous filling of potatoes and/or meat, and blended with spices for a distinctly curry flavour, it’s not hard to see why Curry Corner’s samosas continue to be a favourite among customers. While some versions of the samosa tend to be quite heavy in oil, Curry Corner’s version gets all the rave for being done just right, making it a lighter and healthier version that’s packed with flavour at the same time.
Other bestsellers that can be eaten as breakfast, snacks or appetizers include curry rolls and pakoras. Curry rolls are warm, freshly-baked bread rolls stuffed with a delicious filling of aromatic spices, vegetables and/or meat.
Pakoras, on the other hand, are crunchy vegetable fritters made by dipping fresh vegetables into a batter, deep-fried to golden brown. Pakoras come with a delicious dip made from vegetables as well, making this healthy hot menu item a delight in full-bodied taste and texture.
If you’re looking for hot food for lunch or any full-on meal that will ignite the senses and fill your stomach, you’ll need to try the shop’s signature curry dishes. The chicken curry is a particular favourite among customers, and comes with your choice of rice or fresh roti flatbread. The combination of rice or roti complements the bold flavours of the curry, giving this meal its perfect balance of flavour and texture. And of course, its hard to out-do curry dishes when it comes to soothing comfort food.
