Local flavours: four great eateries in Darwin.

If you’re looking to get out and about and experience the sights, sounds and flavours of Darwin we’ve pulled together a shortlist of local Darwin eateries worth a try.

Waterfront Bistro, Darwin Sailing Club

Nestled alongside the stunning Fannie Bay, the Waterfront Bistro has been pleasing palates for more than 20 years – all thanks to the Jong family’s passion for food.

Chef Tommy Jong whips up flavours to excite, but it was his mother and her six brothers who first decided to combine great food with a great view – entertaining locals and out-of-towners in equal measures.

Today, this award-winning restaurant has it all – good vibes, good views and (most importantly) good food! The diverse menu delivers all the hits and some tasty surprises, so you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy.

Celebrate the holiday or new year with a drink or two, or pop in for a casual meal while soaking up a spectacular Darwin sunset.

Oka Teppanyaki, Parap

At Oka Teppanyaki, the fun’s in the sizzle! Get set for a unique, memorable and exciting dining experience as skilled chefs prepare your meal on an iron griddle right before your eyes.

Serving up a range of authentic Japanese favourites, this spot’s a great option for any occasion and can cater to groups of all sizes.

Oka Teppanyaki also has a huge range of sake – have a try for the ultimate Japanese dining experience!

Curry On Naan, Parap

Ready to turn the heat up a notch this silly season? Treat yourself to some delectable Indian at Curry On Naan.

They believe “there is no love sincerer than the love food” and who are we to argue with an intimate fine dining experience featuring beautiful biryani, tasty tandoori and delectable desserts.

With plenty of vegetarian options, there’s a dish to suit all tastes.

Spice Garden Eating House, Nightcliff
