Cuisine: Mediterranean,balkan

The north shore’s passionate meat lovers have been frequenting Luka’s for years, dining in the friendly candlelit surrounds of this busy eatery. Luka’s dishes up Balkan cuisine as it should be, with generously proportioned servings and an emphasis on meat. The Macedonian country dish $26.50 is hard to turn down, with barbecued fillets of pork, chicken and beef in a baked bread bowl that you break off and eat as you go. If you’re feeling like something a little different, try lamb’s brains $26.50 or play it safe with lamb shanks, market price, with meat that almost liquefies under the weight of your fork. Crepes dominate the dessert menu. The Macedonian-style Luka’s version with honey, walnuts and eggs $12 will satisfy.

Cuisine: Mediterranean,balkan,Indian

The first thing that will strike you when you walk in is the faux marble bar. But that’s as far as the fakery goes. The decor is quite modern, having been recently renovated, which is a good sign this isn’t just the same old Indian restaurant. The menu has some interesting cameos, such as a starter of samundari squid, an Indian take on the ubiquitous salt-and-pepper squid, or fish bhaji, both $16.90. Baingan dam dar (eggplant and potato) in masala sauce $13.90 is a rather dry curry that’s bursting with flavour. A must-try is prawns Malibu (yes, the liqueur) $22.90 with some sweet baluchi naan $6.50 stuffed with sultanas, cashew nuts and coconut. Broaden your sweet horizons with pista kulfi falooda, Indian housemade pistachio icecream and vermicelli $6.90.
