Overview

Although the menu spans many regions of the sub-continent, Billu's Indian Eatery in Sydney specialises in south Indian cuisine. Located in the heart of Harris Park, Billu's is the ideal place to bring the family or that someone special to sample Indian cuisine at its absolute finest. This includes dishing up dosas — rice flour pancakes stuffed with the filling of your choice, be it potatoes, spicy chicken or cottage cheese. Be sure to order the biryani, too. Whether you opt for prawn, vegetables or meat, it's one not to miss.

The mains include bhuna gosht, a traditional Indian mutton made with goat's meat slowly cooked with onion, yoghurt, lots of whole spices, and ghee.

If seafood is more your thing then dive into the goan fish curry, a warm and tangy curry which blends spice with coconut to bring out the subtle sweetness made famous in Goa. Alternatively the prawn vindaloo is ideal for those who know how to handle their spice. Served with brown onion gravy and hot vindaloo sauce, this one is not for the weak stomached.

For those who have specific dietary requirements, Billus Indian Eatery caters to most dietary requirements, including gluten-free and vegan options, all packed with incredible combinations of flavour. For vegetarians the highlights include vegetable dumplings made from potato and cottage cheese or the dal tadka, a delightful mix of yellow lentils with a variety of spices, garlic, ginger and roast chillies. 

Finish off with classic Indian desserts such as moong daal halwa, jalebi rabri, motichoor lad parfait or just opt for some mango ice-cream instead. You definitely won't be leaving this beloved Sydney Indian restaurant hungry.
