Restaurant and Cafe

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.

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

Enjoy, Daana’s Hyderabadi Dum Biryani – Sanjay’s signature dish – an exotic richly saffron flavoured Basmati rice and meat preparation or Daana’s Saturday Regional Daana’s Bhoj-Sunita’s signature special – a gourmet’s delight- a menu that changes every week!

Bookings are recommended.

Daana is a multi-award winning restaurant, having been announced the Winner of 2020 AGFG Readers’ Choice Awards, and has also won several Restaurant & Catering Association -Savour Awards for Excellence in recent years.
