About us

The times, they are a changin'...

Meet INDU

INDU is a celebration of southern Indian and Sri Lankan village culture, flavours and local hospitality. A place where eastern mysticism meets western curiosity.

We believe that the best form of hospitality is that found in the home, and it’s our aim to bring village Indian culture to our guests at INDU. Our food is coastal and village inspired, and we pride ourselves on using the freshest and most seasonal produce.

Who is SPHG?

The Sam Prince Hospitality Group (SPHG) is a bold restaurant group located in Sydney including the popular restaurants Mejico, INDU and Kid Kyoto.

Founded by Dr Sam Prince, an award winning humanitarian, philanthropist, entrepreneur and medical doctor. With a Sri Lankan heritage, Sam opened INDU in 2015, and promised to deliver inspired village style cuisine to Sydney. To learn more click here.

What we stand for

By providing you with a feast for the senses, we enable a lasting bond with the villages we borrow from. INDU has partnered with ACFID accredited grassroots organisation, Palmera, to establish the Village to Village Program.

Our program will enable communities to build thriving village economies through building the infrastructure for local village enterprises.

V2V’s first project is to build a chicken coup in Northern Sri Lanka. This project will directly assist 20 widows from war-torn Sri Lanka who have been displaced by civil war by providing them employment to generate a meaningful income. The program provides job security, skills training, and vertical business opportunities such as crop farming.

How can you help?

Some of the dishes from these villages we support can be found on our menu, and can also be found in Palmera’s cookbook, HANDMADE, which is available for purchase at INDU. Visit Palmera’s website here to learn more about their work on the ground.

Order Meal Boxes online

From our table to yours...support your locals

Mejico, INDU and Kid Kyoto have created almost-ready to eat meal boxes so you can enjoy your favourite restaurant meals at home. Delivering every Friday and Saturday, choose one or more boxes and why not add on some ready made margaritas, some extra tacos or even your favourite wine or Young Henry’s beer to enjoy with it.

We deliver to northern Sydney suburbs every Friday and CBD, Inner West and Eastern Suburbs every Saturday. See more details at check out for suburbs covered and relevant delivery charges (between $10-15).

Menus change every fortnight so you never have to get bored eating the same thing every week. We offer meal box bundles so you can order for 3 weeks in advance and get one box from each restaurant delivered to your door. Boxes serve 2 people comfortably (3 courses) and are delivered ready to simply heat and serve. Some very limited cooking may be required but full instructions are provided.

Our meals are designed to be consumed within 48 hours of delivery to ensure freshness. Whilst every effort has been made to avoid the allergens not listed in the ingredients, they are present in our kitchens and therefore may be present in the order. Please bear this is mind when making your order. We aim to be able to cater for most food intolerances, so please let us know when you order.
