Moore Park’s Masala Kitchen is fast-becoming the hottest spot in Sydney for Indian cuisine. Masala Kitchen is eclectic and fun, and you’ll not only find exceptional Indian food, but expertly made cocktails as well. Keep an eye out for their signature drinks, like the ‘just cool down’ made with Bacardi, cumin and fresh coriander, or the ‘ooh spicy’ with vodka, passion fruit puree, lime and green chilli – both perfect choices to accompany your curry, dosa or biryani.
As for the food, well, it goes without saying that Masala Kitchen excels in this area. To whet your appetite try out the street food starters like the paneer tikka, lamb cutlets and tandoor fish tikka, or maybe go for a veg or non-veg platter to sample and share with your friends. Their signature mains are standouts, and the oh my goat! is a must-try, along with the fisherman’s curry, aloo jeera and mysore masala dosa. But to be honest, they’re all impeccable and you’ll just have to try them all out for yourself. Just be sure to book because this Lang Road restaurant in Moore Park, just out of the Sydney CBD tends to fill up quickly!
