I've recently come back from holiday in Australia and we'd thought we would try a curry in Hobart. Before the criticisms the main course was a very nice curry but not to the standard of our local takeaway in the UK. We visited mid week. To start off with we were brought poppadoms which weren't very crisp (they didn't snap)... More

This was our second visit to Magic Curries but if we didn't live interstate I think we'd be here every week! As yummy as the first time, my partner and I couldn't believe how much flavour was in our two dishes. I had the Palak Paneer, and he had the Fish Masala (he normally goes for chicken but wanted to...

love this place, can't stop coming back! food is by far the best Indisn I've had in Hobart. Super-friendly staff, always feel welcome. perfect for kids too - my kids love butter chicken and nawabi lamb and the mango lassi. fab range of vegetation options, but I can't get past the Dal Makhni which is my fave.

Our first visit was back in 2003 while on holidays in Hobart. We were again on holiday from Adelaide and decided to go back having enjoyed eating there many years ago. Happy to report the food is still very good, the service is still friendly and the atmosphere warm & cozy. A great spot to dine in Battery Point!

My husband and I went to this restaurant recently for late dinner. Service was very good and dishes came pretty quickly (I don't know if it was because the peak time was already past). We ordered some curries and all good, but I felt like they were not special. I can not articulate what it was but something was missing.... More

While exploring the Battery Point area of Hobart my wife and I peeked into many of the ethnic restaurants looking for a spot for dinner. Luckily we stumbled upon the Magic Curries Indian Restaurant. The menu looked interesting so we decided to return for dinner. We were glad we did. The tastefully decorated dining rooms were inviting and comfortable. We... More
