No one in Moorabin does Indian cuisine quite like Mirchi Tadka, a traditional Indian restaurant dishing up time-honoured recipes from all over India, in a cosy setting with warm red walls and wooden furniture. Whet your appetite with some tandoori chicken or some honey chilli cauliflower (pieces of cauliflower dipped in a honeyed batter, served with a sweet chilli sauce with capsicum and onion). Then, feast on a flavour packed curry – you’ll find everything from classics like butter chicken and rogan josh to some specialities on the menu, with plenty of seafood and vegetarian choices too. Known around town for its friendly service and top notch Indian cuisine, Melbourne’s Mirchi Tadka can get busy. To guarantee a table at this South Road fixture, make a reservation in advance.
