This Adelaide institution has been bringing dynamic Indian food to discerning diners since 1979.

Conveniently located in Unley, The Snake Charmer has a cosy atmosphere thanks to wooden panelling and exotic rugs, and the service is every bit as warm as the decor.

Owner Munjela Watt and husband/head chef Andrew Watt have created a broad menu of authentic Indian flavours including curries, sharing platters, entrees and thalis. There’s even a dedicated vegetarian menu, featuring the likes of crispy potato bhaji and creamy korma in a decadent sauce.

While you’ll find all of your Indian favourites including fragrant tandoori and chicken tikka masala, expect a few surprises too. The lamb curry crepe, a tender blend of east and west finished with a cheese crust, is a delicious nod to Andrew’s classical French training.

With a drinks list ranging from fruity lassis to premium wine and a sumptuous selection of sweets freshly crafted in house, The Snake Charmer really does have something to suit every palate.

You know a restaurant is on to something when they still have a queue after being open for 40 years... Book now to guarantee your spot.
