Harpist, April Mifsud ([email protected] on FB) plays at the restaurant, but also offers sound healings, meditation and yoga with her harp, that she hand-crafted herself.

Live music has been in short supply for a while, and like many other things you may not have missed it until it was gone. Billi’s Indian is remedying this deficit by adding live music to their open, relaxed atmosphere. Research has shown that music can elevate mood and reduce stress, and harpist April Mifsud is a master at bringing an angelic experience to her audience that ‘calms the system’. 

Playing on her beautiful hand-carved harp, she will be sharing divine music at Billi’s Indian. As the weather warms up, there’s the chance to sit on their outdoor deck above the street and eat some Indian food, but of course you can always sit inside if you prefer.

Rohit Sharma and his brother Mohit are also making a ‘comeback tour’ into the kitchen after the Qld border closures forced them to close the restaurant and have some time off. But they are back, working together again, to create the best food they can – as they have for the last five years. And, in addition to the harp music, you can expect Bollywood Sitar Night to return soon.

Billi’s Indian Restaurant serves authentic, consistently flavourful, Indian fare. They create the classics, such as pakoras, samosa and bhaji, as well as great tandoori dishes and a great range of curries, including seafood, vegetarian, vegan and meat. There are three different aromatic Biryani rice to choose from and 11 different naan breads, and all the dishes offer generous servings.

To round off the meal, Billi’s has traditional Indian desserts such as Gulab Jamun, Rasmali and Mango Kulfi, as well as good old ice cream for the less adventurous.

Billi’s serves a choice of lassis and you can BYO your own beverages (Billinudgel Pub is across the road).

Drift with a dhal, cascade with a curry, and sip to sweet sounds again at Billi’s Indian. 

Shop 8 Wilfred St, Billinudgel. Open, Tues–Sunday, 4.30–9pm.
