Try this new Indian restaurant for a great meal
It is called Curry Thieves. It is a small cafe in a medium-sized shopping centre and is just 2 minutes away from my home.

Indian food is both vibrant, spicy and is an intensely colourful world which has found in an ever-increasing fanbase in Australia. The menu is large and caters to lunch, snacks, dinner and they do free takeaway for up to 4 kms from their shop. The minimum for this is a $30 spend.

Located in Dianella Plaza Shopping Centre, 366 Grand Promenade, the shop is number 47A. It has a Woolworths, Coles, and 60 other stores including three coffee lounges. The phone number is 9275 4622, though I do not think booking is needed here.

Curry Thieves is very casual and plain with unfancy furniture. I would term it an easy place where you eat with no fuss or bother. It holds about 30 people, including about six outside, though the outside is very near to a lot of traffic, so I prefer inside.

It is a serve-yourself cafe where you go up and order and this also includes the lunch special of the day which is a Meal Lunch Box at $10 each. Choose from two freshly cooked meat and vegetable dishes. This is accompanied by rice and papadums and similar types of Indian bread. There are about 15 different types of bread, some filled and some plain.

Daily specials


I often go out with a friend where we share a meal and then also share an entree or something a bit smaller than a full meal. Lunch is for me a meal that I do not want to have too much despite my love of eating different foods from various countries. Both my friend and I will eat and have a coffee most times of the day and we spend a lot of time looking for new places to go. This is actually not a thing that is difficult to find in Perth as they seem to open every week in my immediate area and surrounding suburbs.

We chose the goat curry to share as our meal and this was the chef's special and came out at $19. This was the most expensive meal on the menu and I found it a bit expensive for the amount of meat we were served, even though it was excellent.

The meat was delicious as was the gravy and we ordered rice to go with it. As well as that, we chose the Thieves Special Naan which cost $5.50. It was a naan bread stuffed with cheese and the chef's secret chicken recipe.

With Indian food, you can generally get a variety of vegan and gluten-free options at most places and this was no exception at Indian Thieves.

The naan was quite unusual as I have not tasted a naan with so much inside it before. Some of the things you can get at this cafe include:

Bread
Chicken/Lamb/Beef
Seafood
Biryani
Rice

This is a great cafe as you can get small meals like lunch specials and even larger meals that most people would have for dinner.

INDIAN FOOD
Many of us love to eat food from different countries as some of it is just so unusual compared to our own steak and chips that we love!

There are many traditional Indian foods that we try and that are widely appreciated because of their herbs and spices, and possibly the best or the one we eat the most are the curries. They can be hot, medium or mild and we all favour different spices and the strengths and different tastes of these.

Indian cuisine is known for its large assortment of dishes. Each cooking style varies from region to region.

The staple food in India includes rice, wheat, and pulses with chana being the most important one. I would definitely recommend this cafe as an easy, quick and having a good variety of very tasty food.
