Bhang is a unique contemporary Indian restaurant off Sydney Rd in Brunswick exploring dishes from all corners of India such as Mangalorean inspired 'Kori Gassi', 'Pista Badam Murg' from Hyderabad and Kashmir spiced Trout 'Bhunee Machi'.

Bhang has an ample selection of vegan and gluten free items that compete equally in flavour and popularity with out charcoal meats and tandoor dishes. Bhang's wine and craft beer list from local producers focus on drinkability and 'Bhang for your buck', while our Indian inspired cocktails are a must try, especially during happy hour (5-7pm Tues-Sun).

Service was great. This is the 2nd time on attending Bhnag and we will be back again. Food was good, a little loud bit it does add to the communal atmosphere..

A lovely place with amazing staff! Only feedback according to my fiancé (Indian nationality), feels the mains didn’t taste as authentic. But, I would still recommend. Top service from the staff ... well done

Great food, well priced and awesome fitout. WAY too noisy though - needs acoustic treatments introduced as you can't hear your partner at the table.

Always have the best nights at Bhang - cocktails are the best and sharing platter/thali nights are the way to go!

Everything was fantastic, the food was delicious and that ginger cocktail!! Wow! only downside is that it is a noisy space, but I don’t think that can be helped. Also, allow extra time to find parking nearby :)

We ate at Bhang for my husband's birthday dinner with our 2 children. The staff were great at recommending dishes that weren't too spicy that the kids would like. We shared quite a few dishes and had a great night.
The cocktails (for the adults) were quite unusual and different, but a really wonderful way to start the night and the wine list had wines that were not your usual varietals.
The food is amazing and full of such flavour.
We had a wonderful night and will definitely be back!

Lovely spicy food and awesome staff! If you’re looking for a mild curry this is not the place though. Everything is pretty gnarly.

Excellent interpretation of Indian food and well priced. Service was pretty good. Let down would be the restaurant comfort.. the heating system was average, and despite the heat & warmth of the spicy food served I felt pretty chilly on a cold melb winter

Had an outstanding meal. Service and vibe in the room was excellent. Unfortunately it is quite a loud room making conversation awkward. But the food definitely makes up for it!

I came here with 2 friends (total: 3) and we had a good meal. For the feed me menu, we thought the food was delicious and was delivered efficiently. The only negative was the table seating downstairs was fairly crowded.

Bhang will go down as my favourite Indian restaurant. A great experience from the warm greeting, to the awesome decor, food and drink selection. Loved it. Highly recommend Bhang.

Although what we ate was great, it was way too much and the waiter should have known that. He also suggested we order naan bread which would have been far too excessive, and we are not small eaters by far.

Also, we were put into a tiny table that could barely accommodate our plates and food, and was wedged very close to the table next to us. Not ideal for a relaxing or intimate evening.

We loved our evening at Bhang and felt welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The decor was funky and tastefully done. The giant table was the perfect place to have a pre dinner cocktail from the bar.
The staff were helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. We’d certainly eat there again.

Disappointed that even after requesting in booking comments to be contacted to reschedule if we could not be seated in the dinning area, and booking more than a week in advance, we were still confirmed and seated to dine in the bar with no acknowledgement of our request. Lighting and noise level in bar, even on quiet night, made this very difficult to read menu or hear each other. No serving utensils and no knives provided with large meat dishes and curries made it difficult to share food. Service staff nice but no knowledge of or pride taken in the product. Rarely knew answer to questions and much prompting needed for assistance. Served a replacement drink without asking us first if we were ok with the replacement. Order taken or communicated incorrectly as well as all dishes being brought at once. Shame, as the chef had clearly taken a lot of care with the food. Overall very disappointing as was looking forward to it.

Great Indian food, lots of unique flavours so each dish was exciting - great recommendation on starter - spinach chaat was tangy & morish! Ate it all up - rare with Indian as it can be too rich!
Awesome space, bit dark for a group with visual challenges but got used to it - can’t wait to try out thali night, already recommended it to friends!
