About Us

Elegantly situated in Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula, Tulsi (named after the Holy Basil) has become an icon for providing an unique Indian culinary experience. The family run restaurant serves regional Indian cuisine in a warm and elegant dining room fused with modern Indian elements and French bistro styling.

From the moment you enter Tulsi, an atmosphere rich in Indian style and hospitality welcomes you. The beautifully crafted wooden show pieces embody the rustic charms and colourful culture of India creating a warm ambience suited for all occasions. The open kitchen enhances the dining experience allowing diners to view as their meals are being prepared.

Shriraj Amin emphatically believes in supporting one’s region: accordingly Tulsi’s winelist features wines exclusively from the Mornington Peninsula including his own Wildcroft Estate. Produce is also sourced locally, including ingredients such as wild fennel, mint, limes and cherry tomatoes from Shriraj Amin’s own vineyard.

Tulsi has received a number of awards and praise, including winning the prestigious ‘Best Indian Restaurant in Victoria’ award twice and being reviewed and recommended by The Age Good Food Guide since 2006. Whether visiting for a casual or serious dining experience, Tulsi is sure to impress.
