The great Australian public loves to head out for a feed, and those of them that live in Adelaide are no different. Indian food is popular across the country, and for those living in Mawson Lakes, there is really only one choice: Darshana’s Indian Cuisine on The Promenade. The restaurant serves up subcontinental food every day from 11:30 - 3 and 5 onwards, with an emphasis and Indian and Sri Lankan specialities, so reserve a seat and get yourself over.
Eating out in Adelaide is always a pleasure, and as the city’s culinary scene goes from strength to strength, it can become difficult to pick where to eat of an evening. If you are in Mawson Lakes and have a taste for curry, then Darshana’s Indian Cuisine is the place for you. The restaurant’s ambience, atmosphere and welcoming staff are one thing that will get you through the door, and they couldn’t be easier to find: it’s right next to the University of South Australia and Parafield Airport. The menu is as diverse as the cuisine of India itself, and when you get down to Mawson Lakes, you will see why.
Indian food is often a balancing act between the curry house classics that the whole family can enjoy, and the obscure and lesser-seen delicacies that keep the purists coming back time and again. The tint at Darshana’s Indian Cuisine in Mawson Lakes is South Indian and Sri Lankan, so the vegetarian favourites are there in the form of dal makhani and palak paneer, as are fish dishes such as fish tikka and Kerala fish curry, but the more experienced Indian food eaters can also try the Goan fish vindaloo – filled with chilli – and Sri Lankan-style squid. Adelaide has many great places to eat, and you can add Darshana’s to the list: just remember to book a table before you go.
