Thava Indian Restaurant
Thava is another one of our favourites, especially if we're in the Norwood side or walking about Montecasino of town on a chilly day. Their menu offers a wide variety of vegetarian, lamb, chicken and seafood dishes, along with classic and fragrant curries, biryanis, stews, spicy tandoori and masala dishes. The curries are amazing, and you'll definitely want to mop up every last bit of sauce with their traditional breads or rice. Usually after a meal of spicy goodness, some sweet Indian temptations or a specialty coffee goes down nicely.

Make your way to either the Lonehill, Boskruin, Bedfordview, Ruimsig, Randpark Ridge or Douglasdale restaurant and enjoy some moreish samoosas, bunny chows and roti rolls, Tandoori Chicken, biryanis, kormas, masala, vindaloo curries and so much more. You can get yours delivered through Mr D.
The Curry Place
Now over to Randpark Ridge. Another great spot to get some spicy, delicious and aromatic curries is The Curry Place. One of our favourite dishes from here is the Lamb Korma (mild) with some naan bread to soak up the rest of the sauce. Yum! All of their dishes are served with rice, in your choice of heat (mild, medium or hot) and of course, everything on the menu is Halaal.

Chilli & Spice
This is where the spice is. Chilli & Spice in Craighall Park is worth a visit (but in this case, an online order). The food is good, the hot stuff is definitely HOT (then again, medium is also HOT for some of us) and the vibe is awesome. We've heard that this spot is in the lead for the best biryani in the city. And if you're looking to eat in, they're on Uber Eats!
