From the legends who brought us the iconic Masala Bowl, comes Masala Kitchen. It’s the new kid on the block in Moore Park, and it’s here to transport you straight to India with some of the most authentic fare this side of the equator.
If you’re anything like us, the struggle is real when it comes to finding authentic, modern Indian nosh—but struggle no more, because Masala Kitchen does just that. From your first glance at the place, you’ll already be falling in love: high ceilings, bright colours, fairy lights...and that’s before you even take a look at the food on offer.
The menu is more like a feasting adventure through different Indian cuisines that has literally got something for everyone. Get your taste buds tingling with the street food and entrée menu (think samosas, chicken tikka, papdi chaat or mix it up with a platter) before hitting up the mains in Masala’s signature ‘unedited and unapologetic’ style.
Keen to see why Masala Kitchen is so popular? Then you can’t go past their signature dishes including onion lachae (thin sliced onion, mixed with special batter and deep fried), fiery laal maas (traditional spicy lamb, garlic, yoghurt and red chillies) and the oh, my goat curry which absolutely nails traditional Indian cooking.
Whatever you do, though, do NOT leave without ordering the pinwheel samosas and chicken momos for entree. And don't you dare try and ask for the bill without sinking your teeth into the fresh mango and coconut pannacotta.
Masala Kitchen has got your back with a private lounge just for drinks (finally). Kick back and sample signature cocktails such as the just cool down (Bacardi, cumin, fresh coriander), why cinnamon (Smirnoff, infused cinnamon, apple juice) and holy bananas (whisky, betel leaf, rose paddle, clove, lime cordial). And for all you gin lovers, they’ve got a signature gin menu with the opportunity to try their gin TASTING BOARD (!!!!).
It’s fun, it’s vibrant, and it’s making us hungry so do yourself a favour and see for yourself why Masala Kitchen is the colourful answer to our Indian food prayers
