Melbourne is hardly lacking in Indian restaurants to visit, and often the most difficult part of eating out subcontinental style is choosing which to go to. While the city offers everything from the neighbourhood curry house to those specialising in regionally-specific cuisines and fine dining taster menus, if it is the true essence of Indian cooking which makes your mouth water, then Spicy Times is the place for you. They offer heat, flavour and no frills from their location on Barkly Street in St Kilda, so book a table now and wander over for a proper Indian feed.
Indian food ranks up there at the top of the average Aussie’s list of restaurant favourites, and the foodies of Melbourne are faced with an above average selection from which to choose. The curry cognoscenti love to peruse the best that the city has to offer, and if they’re looking for a tantalising test of their tastebuds, then Spicy Times on Barkly Street in St Kilda is the obvious destination. Their Indian food is geared around getting the maximum amount of flavour possible, so expect chillies, spices and no little skill in the kitchens.
Getting down to Spicy Times in St Kilda couldn’t be simpler. They’re on Barkly Street, right where it meets Acland Street, so central Melbourne visitors can take the tram to its terminus and then make the short walk over. On arrival, you’re sure to be met with an extensive menu, but we can’t see further than the tava dishes, which are started in the tandoor oven and then moved onto the tava, the iconic Indian grill. Wash it down with a few lassis and you’re well on your way to a great Indian experience – just remember to reserve ahead of time, as they do get busy.
