Time for a bit of love for a sometimes under appreciated entry in the fierce competition for the title of Brisbane’s best Indian restaurant. Trading in the restaurant hub of Rosalie, Halims is a local favourite, dishing up fantastic Indian meals every night.
The butter chicken you will find at Halims is everything you could ever want a butter chicken to be. The rich, creamy sauce is dotted with cashew pieces, fresh herbs and the odd raisin and is perfect for dipping into with a naan bread. This is the kind of sauce people write songs about (okay, maybe not…but it really is that good). Insider tip: don’t order this dish if you are planning on being active afterwards. You’re more likely to find yourself spread out on the floor after dinner, bemoaning your full belly and your lack of self-restraint.
There are other menu items, of course; the Aloo Gobi is a delicious vegetarian dish and there is a range of dahl and other curry options. The banquets are amazing value for money and include a huge platter of entrees, so make sure you’re hungry.
The staff are lovely, food is delivered to the tables promptly, and you can BYO alcohol or order beer and wine from the drinks menu. Indian restaurants are always a great pick for group dinners and Halims is no different, happily catering for groups or functions.
