For a regional centre with a modest population, Albury has a surprising number of excellent restaurants. In fact, there are so many good restaurants and cafes that we found it hard to even start writing this blog post! So, rather than write a blog post about the best Albury restaurants, we thought we’d start with 3 of our favourites. We know not everyone will agree with these choices. However, you can sure there will be more blog posts on this topic to come!
Border Wine Room
The Border Wine Room, with its sophisticated setting, is ideal for a special night out. The menu is inspired by Chef Gary Brogdale’s travels in Asia and Europe ( French inspired by Japanese techniques) and changes monthly. Fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables from The Border Wine Room’s own kitchen garden and local farmers are always a feature. The degustation menu (available on Saturdays – $90 for 6 courses/$130 with matched wines) is incredible value. The quality of the food is seriously impressive and the staff are very knowledgeable about every single element on the plate. Bookings are essential!
Indian Chimney Restaurant
If you like Indian food in a relaxed environment then this is the place for you. Popular with locals and visitors, the Indian Chimney is ALWAYS busy. Fortunately, the staff are adept at handling takeaway orders and seated guests in a friendly, efficient manner. Special requests are no problem and the service feels personal despite the bustling atmosphere. The menu is extensive and features traditional Indian dishes and naan bread, as well as a selection of lesser-known flavours. Fresh, flavorful Indian food that will stay with you long after your visit to Albury is over!
The Bended Elbow
The Bended Elbow might be a pub but it is a pub with friendly, accommodating staff, good vibes and delicious pub food. With two dining areas, The Bended Elbow can accommodate plenty of punters without feeling crowded, so it’s suited to both small and large groups. There’s plenty of beers and wines to choose from and the menu features all the usual pub favourites.
