There’s nothing quite like a delicious Indian curry. The Penrith LGA has plenty of great choices when it comes to Indian – here’s our top five.

5. North Indian Flavour (Westfield Penrith)

You may be shocked to find a food court Indian restaurant on our list, but North Indian Flavour at Westfield Penrith has been around for years and represents excellent value for money, and consistently dishes out high quality Indian.

The ever-popular butter chicken is a must from here, while the naan breads are delicious.

Try a few different items by working it in to a Panther Special plate.

4. Anand Indian Restaurant (St Marys)

A quiet achiever on the Indian restaurant scene, Anand on Queen Street in St Marys has a friendly vibe and great tasting meals.

Make sure you try the mixed entree (they’ll even customise it for you) and there’s some excellent lamb dishes here too.

The naan bread is some of the hottest and tastiest we’ve tried.

3. Taj of the Valley (Penrith)

Taj of the Valley is a survivor of the sometimes futile local restaurant scene. It’s been around for the years and the customer service from the friendly team is first class.

All the staples are brilliant here but there’s a few surprises as well, especially if you take a deeper look at the menu.

After years of having no delivery options, you can now grab your favourites on the delivery apps too.

2. Masala Kitchen (Jamisontown)

A delicious, modern Indian option at the bustling East Bank restaurant precinct by the Nepean River.

The Masala Feast is a must here – at just $37 per person (minimum two people) you are absolutely no chance of going home hungry.

Masala is also known for its wide range of gin and cocktails.

1. Cook’s Castle (Penrith)

Don’t let first impressions fool you! Cook’s Castle may be slightly hidden away at the western end of High Street and appear pretty basic from first glance, but we reckon it’s Penrith’s best.

Great prices, great service and awesome-tasting food that holds up as a take-away or delivery option as well as in-store dining.

And the staff have amazing memories – it doesn’t take much to become a ‘regular’!
