Yesterday, we room mates tried out new Indian Restaurant for change. Little India was random idea that just came to one of among us. It is hardy a five minute walking from our home.
It is a small restaurant at Toorak Road and had capacity of 20-25 people. As it was cold outside we preferred to sit inside.
We were all impressed by Little India’s business-style infrastructure and executive staff. For drink we ordered Corona with lemon and as always it tested great.
For starters Onion Bhaji is default for us. I did not found much difference in taste compare to other Indian restaurants. I rarely eat mushrooms. But it was red and spicy Tandoori Mushroom dish served and made my mouth watering. I enjoyed mushrooms first time in my life. Again Paneer Pakoras disappointed us. They were taste less but with mint chutney somehow we managed.
In main course, as we were not aware about quantity and quality we tried Shahi Paneer and Paneer Shimla Mirch. And they were delicious and not too much spicy as we preferred. But it was not enough quantity. As we were five, we ordered one more of each.
I tried Onion-nan with spices and it didn’t make much difference. But Garlic-nan was crispy and thin.
Throughout the dinner, staff service was excellent. Even Little India is in South Yaraa, our bill was reasonable. ($150)
If you are looking for Indian taste in Melbourne, dine-in Little India.
