My Partner and I booked online late. Seated and had mains ready within 15mins, Garlic Naan and Cheese Naan Breads were Very Tasty, Mains ordered Butter Chicken and Prawn Alfreezo. If your after a Tasty and Affordable priced Meal you've found a Good Place for Dinner. Enjoy, hopefully we'll be back in the Future and will definitely be back.

Good Indian food, reasonable prices. We will be back soon. In my opinion Coriander's is the best Indian cuisine restaurant in Hanmer Springs.

Short wait for a table despite the restaurant being very busy. I was impressed by how efficient and cheerful the staff was, despite being run off their food. Food arrived quickly and was delicious. More than we could eat.

Our family really enjoyed dinner at Coriander after 4 hours in the Hot Pools. The service was excellent and the food was delicious - especially the onion bhajis, garlic naan, chicken korma and chicken tikka.

Very accomodating as we didnt book and was seatwd quickly. We ordered onion bhaji as starters which didnt of any onion and was quite dry. I then ordered a vindaloo which tasted of hot tomato sauce. Very bland meal. Quite disappointing

We shared our chosen buttered chicken and mango chicken dishes which were mild and medium of each choice to cater for tastes. There was plenty of food for the 6 of us and went down a treat. Very quick and efficient service.

Fantastic Indian food. My wife and I got take away and 2 mains were enough for 2 seperate meals. Phenomenally good chicken tikka masala. We're thinking about going back tomorrow
