Superb Indian Restaurant in Seaforth As with another reviewer, we have relied on this hidden jewel for our Indian fix for several years. I have just arrived home from possibly the best dinner we have had. Hostess Neeta and her chef husband deserve the accolades they receive, as the for is exceptional and the service matches. If you need to have a special dinner then do not pass this. -

Best Indian Restaurant in Sydney We have been dining at Bijolias since 2007 and it has never disappointed. This is an Indian restaurant with a difference. The food is fresh and innovative. You find all the usual favourites on the menu such as Butter Chicken, Rogan Josh, Samosas and Tandoori Chicken but there are also other delicious dishes such as the Papri Chutney Chat which is crunchy samosa pastry and potatoe chunks, chick peas served with yoghurt and tamarind sauce which are just jummy!. You also get some fresh herbs and greens in some of the dishes which is a nice change from the usual Indian restaurants. The service here is very professional and you always feel welcome and in good hands. Try the Tandoori sampler to start - the lamb cutlets are amazing! -

Best Indian in the Northern Beaches. I've had excellent Indian food in obviously India followed by Bijolias. Bijolias was my twice a week stop for many years while living in Australia. To this day I miss those curries and lamb chops that I was served at this place. If you are looking for clean Indian flavors in Sydney; this is it!!! -

Exquisite little boutique place, the food was out of this world, have been here 3 times now and we love trying their specials every time. Great food and great service. The place was packed but it all seemed very organised and taken care of. Don't mind travelling from the other side of the bridge to eat their yummy food. Well Done.

This is easily the best Indian food in Sydney. Value for money, finger licking-ly delicious food, adorably friendly service staff, especially the little Indian lady owner, innovative and world class. List goes on.

The food was excellent, couldn't find one fault in the food or service, very tasty and generous portions, excellent friendly staff, superb, will be back.

...Great food, enthusiastic service...The aroma of the restaurant as we entered was immediately enticing. And the staff very welcoming. For most dishes, the food was very fragrant and full of complex spices - we loved it...

.......Consistently excellent Indian food and service..... Friendly service from Neeta who is just a delight The food is excellent and we love the barramundi starter and the shredded chicken starter. The pastry on the samosas is perfect. My children have loved this restaurant for years and often have their birthday dinner there. It is very busy on weekends and Friday nights.The chef is the owner and the family take pride in the produce. The service is 2nd to none. Highly recommend...

........talk about the worlds best Indian, I reviewed 5 stars! Super amazing!!!My absolute favourite restaurant!!.......

Sue Hawkins

........Good Indian.....Visiting this restaurant for the first time, our new 'local' Indian, was a good experience. 90% full when we arrived which was a good sign for a Tuesday night. It's a smalish place, seemingly we'll run and friendly service. Good food with a variety of novel dishes on the menu. Enjoyed it. We'll go back again.......
