Nestled in Canberra’s leafy suburb of Curtin resides a little taste of India at Daana. The restaurant is a burst of vibrancy with authentically Indian food.

Daana was born from Sanjay and Sunita’s love for cooking, and the joy of giving and sharing. Daana’s dynamic menu is a celebration of traditional South Indian cuisine and regional Indian food. Vegetarian and vegan options are abundant. More recently, the team has created a unique and innovative blending of Indigenous Australian Bush ingredients with traditional South Indian recipes to create their ‘Confluence Menu’ that has been appreciated by guests and critics alike.

Head to Daana – a place where friends and families meet in a relaxing ambience, where laughter rings in an air of casual elegance that soothes the senses.

Enjoy, flavours of the Confluence Menu or Daana’s Friday and Saturday Regional Daana’s Bhoj-Sunita’s signature special – a gourmet’s delight- a new menu every week!

Daana is a multi-award winning restaurant, having won several Restaurant & Catering Association – Awards for Excellence and AGFG awards in recent years.
