The service needs to improve & music too loud . Food was okay as well . Not a wow experience at all
Great name and location, with that said, food was tasteless and overrated, furthermore, I don’t want to pay $3 for chilli to make my food taste nicer! Wouldn’t recommend.
The whole experience was excellent. We had the tasting menu and every dish was delicious, especially the cauliflower and the dessert. For $55 the amount of food that you get is such good value.
The staff were all really attentive and they accommodated us for an extra bit of time as we weren't finished even though it was so busy.
Really happy with it.
The music needs to change! It’s such a beautiful venue but sing a long pub music isn’t the right vibe for DIL. Cool traditional music with some fusion of modern music would be cool, not too loud but loud enough for people to feel like it is more of a cultural experience. Service was great! The food was good but paying $55pp is a lot for food that I won’t be rushing back for. Maybe bigger or more options for the entrees?! I picked this venue as it is super cute but I found it quite dim and dark which is upsetting as I wanted to enjoy the beauty of the restaurant and also see my friends from across the table- which I found hard to focus on as it was dark and also hearing them as the music was quite loud. It was a fun experience and once again the service was great and the owner or manager gave us a free dessert and drink which was beautiful, very lovely staff but always room for improvement and probably won’t be rushing to go back.
The food was delicious- every dish we chose - and the wine was excellent- service just right - not intrusive. Only comment is the noise level was a little high - not a deal breaker though.
Food was amazing. Balls of happiness to start truly were happiness! Tasty spicy cauliflower dish! And delicious Thali.
Great service excellent share plates especially the balls of happiness and ceviche plus good value for a special occasion mother’s day
Food was sensational , service was friendly. Very enjoyable lunch, I will be back !
Poor overall experience.....disappointed as we found no value for money
The food was delicious, would definitely recommend going. Worth it.
AMAZING service & food! Staff were attentive and helpful and food was absolutely gorgeous. The birthday celebration we had there was incredible. Will be returning.
Well I was Referred by Mr Tarun Aerry to Daughter in Law , Everything was Great except since it was my anniversary and I requested Small cake and Good Place while Booking however was not acknowledged..
Rest everything was fine as supposed to be .
Loved everything about Daughter in Law. Food, service and atmosphere was awesome!
Our fourth time here and live sitting at the bar, great atmosphere and delicious food. Received some complimentary dishes from the chef which was amazing, service brilliant too. Thank you
We had the $55/head banquet which was delicious and very good value. Dietary requirements were carefully adhered to and the vegetarian options were great. Would definitely recommend.
Great service, funky atmosphere, delicious food and dietary requirements catered for with no problems.
The banquet was delicious. Staff were really friendly and attentive throughout the night.
Very good food. The taster menu is good value for the service and amount of food. I do not recommend the beer taster together with the taster menu. They are not a good match, so stick with either cocktails or wine.
A great meal, excellent inner city location and great service. Loved it.
Amazing authentic food. Great service. Loved the self serve beer fridge very quirky
Underwhelming experience. The portions for mains were small (even thought we were told they were large when we were going to order another curry).
Entree was small and over priced too.
Drinks took to long to arrive also. Considering we were across from the bar and the bases were premixed, expected them to arrive faster.
Best curries in Melbourne. And the balls of taste are amazing.
I’ve had very similar quality curries at places that sell them for half the price. Cocktails were phenomenal- the tiger chai one was INSANE
Food was delicious, good mix of traditional flavours with modern twist. Cauliflower was DELICIOUS, a must get. The service was exceptional, indicated it was my dad's birthday and they did a special desert!
Fantastic food and great service
Great food at a great price!! If you love Indian this is the spot.
Had a fantastic night. Thoroughly enjoyed everything. Staff and food were amazing
We got the tasting plate and it was massive. Struggled to finish it😄. Great selection of quality food and generous portions.
Music was a wee bit loud and unfortunately the table next to us (big about 10 people) became louder and louder as they got more drunk which made it very hard for us to converse. I realise that there isn’t much what you can do about that except maybe having large groups more separate to others! We were well into our tasting menu when they became unbearable, so didn’t ask to move!
The food, service and vibe and value was amazing. The only negative was that the windows didn’t close properly and as a result we were freezing. Highly recommend this place but if you go in winter ask to sit away from the window.
Fabulous food, attentive waiters and beautiful decor.
Tasty modern Indian food at a very good price; recommend the tasting menu which is excellent value, provides a great way to sample the menu and you’ll leave very full
Food was amazing, great serving sizes to share and beautiful authentic flavours. As soon as you walked into the space you could smell the delicious spices coming from the kitchen, love the help yourself bar fridge. The staff were lovely and attentive. Overall amazing dinner, will definitely return.
The music was very loud and it's really to talk with others at the table. One of the food came late after we finished our dinner.
Everything about Daughter-in-Law was fantastic! In particular, the variety and quantity of the chef's menu was excellent. The perfect amount and flavours. 100% recommend!
Outstanding. Delicious food, drinks & good service!
Better than expected, would definitely go back. All of my friends enjoyed it too.
Waitress helped us in selecting a selection of food which was all amazing. Particular favourite of mine was the Indian Fried Chicken.
Relaxed atmosphere with cheesy nineties music playing and a fridge to help yourself to beers and chilled glasses.
Beautiful Indian food in a relaxed fun environment.
Great night out!
Food and vibe was amazing!!! Loved the decor and the music just made the whole night that much more fun! Can’t wait to go again
As a Brit who loves a good curry this is one of the very best in Melbourne - I will be back!
