Autumn-Winter Confluence Menu

The menu at DAANA is a celebration of traditional Indian cuisines, especially South Indian and Regional Indian food. Although traditional in the way the dishes are prepared, we present them in a contemporary style that showcases the urban Indian dining experience that will appeal to one and all.

This year’s Sping-Summer Confluence Menu showcases the harmonious blending of traditional Indian recipes with native Australian ingredients and the best seasonal produce. We have spent many months researching the flavour profiles of local indigenous ingredients. Recipe development and taste testing were crucial for finding the right balance between the distinct native ingredients and commonly used Indian spices.

This innovative blending is the first of its kind for an Indian restaurant in the Canberra region, bringing in a whole new dimension to innovative Indian dining.

The Confluence Menu is our tribute to our adopted homeland, Australia, it is a meeting, bedding down, a tucking in of our homes and their distinctive flavours. We have loved working on this truly special menu and we welcome you to Daana to ‘Tuck-in’!M.
