This sets the mood for a special night out and allows for easy conversation even when the room is busy.
Copper Chimney has a new menu, but it still features many of the Jewel of India classics, which is very good as ‘Jewel’ was a top choice for Indian food in Canberra.
The service is excellent, attentive, professional and thoughtful, delivering a ‘fine dining’ experience.
Pramod is a pleasure to chat to and only too willing to help design a menu for a group or to accommodate special requests.
Serve sizes are generous and ideal for sharing between up to six people (for a ‘tasting’ banquet).
Corkage is very reasonable at $6 per bottle.
Copper Chimney also offers 25% off for Canberra Entertainment Book holders (to $30) and is happy to take up to three vouchers (for groups of 6 or more).
Excellent choices based on Her Canberra’s recent review are:
Pappadoms with mint sauce and tamarind chutney (complimentary)
Chicken 65 (spicy and delicious) $14.90
Prawn curry Goanese – prawns cooked in a sauce of coriander seeds, cumin, turmeric powder and freshly ground coconut $24
Chicken Chettinad – a speciality from Southern India, chicken with a pepper spiced curry $19
1 Goat Bhuna Masala – spice coated pieces of goat, served on a sizzling plate $21
Aloo Paratha (with potato) $5 each
3 serves rice ($4 per serve)
Mango Kulfi $6
Pistachio Kulfi $6
Gulab Jaman with icecream $8
This menu below for 5-6 would be $22-26 per person ($16-20 with 25% Canberra Entertainment Book discount).
If your budget is very tight you could leave out the Chicken 65.
