6 top Indian restaurants on the Northern Rivers

MAYBE we asked the question at the right time - just before dinner - but we got some great suggestions for Indian restaurants across the Northern Rivers.

Many of you gave a list of dishes at your favourite restaurants including samosas, butter chicken, garlic naan and not forgetting the pappadums.

Made us quite hungry here at the Northern Star.

So to share the love we thought we’d compile the top five restaurants.

1. Indian Mumtaj

Maybe because there are two of them, one in Ballina and one in Lismore, they reach a greater number of people, but they came in first by far for recommendations.

“Best butter chicken and garlic naan,” Alexandria Hanna posted.
