We would like to inform all our loyal patrons that the day has arrived to address the withdrawal symptoms for your favourite Indian cuisine. All 3 of our branches at Nelson, Richmond and Stoke are open for dine-in, takeaway and home deliveries!


You can order on our respective phone numbers or you can do it through YUMMI, an online delivery portal. We are working on orders and e-vouchers through our online website, which should be ready shortly. Please be patient as there might be delays due to us being busy in this new way of doing business. Thank you in advance for your wonderful support over the years and we are glad to be back in business to serve our invaluable customers!

Welcome to The Indian Café.  Three great locations - Nelson, Richmond & Stoke!

Founded in the heart of Nelson in 2002, award-winning* The Indian Café has been the Indian restaurant of choice for the locals and tourists alike. We pride ourselves on the highest quality food and presentation and we continue to strive for excellence in bringing you a memorable cuisine experience. Our spacious restaurant in an old villa mixes the character and warmth of yesterday with the freshness and buzz of today. In 2016 we added a second restaurant in the heart of Queen Street, Richmond and our Stoke restaurant opened in 2020.

Whether it is a meal before the movies or a whole evening of experiencing superb Indian cuisine we cater for all of your dining needs! We offer intimate table settings inside and a great courtyard area to enjoy outside dining in the warmer seasons. For special occasions we offer private dining for up to twenty people.
