Description: The Only Place was created 16 years ago to introduce Indian cuisine to Nelson Bay. Since having opened doors in 1998, our aim has been to serve authentic Indian food in a family friendly environment. Owners Rajoo and Shaloo Gurram strive to serve the beatiful, vibrant flavours of Indian cuisine and have hand selected dishes that they themselves crave and enjoy sharing with family and friends. The Only Place welcomes you to come and experience the true flavours of India. Our seafood is locally sourced. Our chicken is halal certified. We have plenty of Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten free options. BYO

As you walk down the ramp into what looks like a basement food court you may have second thoughts but don't be put off.  Once seated the setting is present and a change from the typical Indian restaurant. The offerings from this young husband and wife business are tasty and honest.  All dishes we ordered  were fresh and contained plenty of first class ingredients (not the usual few pieces of tough meat swimming in sauce). Highly recommended.

Such a great meal! Helped that we read the menu well beforehand, but we also got some tips from a very patient and helpful person when we rang to place our order - and we were rewarded with a wonderfully balanced, beautifully spicy and value for money meal. Actually we got two meals out of our order. Highly recommended!

Go down the ramp. That’s all you need to do. The food is fantastic authentic Indian and full of flavour. I’ve been here a few times now and it’s been great every time. BYO.

As residents this was our first visit to Only Place and we were really impressed with the food. Did have some wait time but was worth it, great food and freshly cooked, all ingredients were fresh and complimented the dishes, we are fussy eaters but would go back here again. Also compared to other restaurants in this area, the menu is extensive and varied. Would recommend

Friendly service and good buffet menu for group sittings. Only downfall was they were very stingy on the steamed rice and charged us multiple times to refill it.
All the curries and naan's we ordered were great especially the butter chicken and vindaloo curry
