Indian cuisine with a touch of Australia
Indian cuisine with a dash of the Australian wilds meet in the delightful Indian Spicy Villa in Wynnum Central. Why not try kangaroo and crocodile dishes Indian style?
Our hosts greet us and other restaurant guests as if we are family or old friends, and this continues with a warm welcome and chat throughout the evening on the food and its origins. Everything is "made from scratch" as our chef and host proudly proclaims, adding they only use fresh food and rich flavours.
Entrees are plentiful including succulent tikka, pakora and samosas. We were presented with the latter in a delicious pyramid of flaky pastry full of fragrant lamb.
Kangaroo Tikka Masala and Crocodile Masala feature as just a couple of the specialities on the menu, subject to availability, along with a selection of goat curries. I chose a traditional beef Madras cooked with potatoes and coconut cream. My dining host enjoyed the Malai Kofta – cheese and potato dumplings cooked in a mild creamy sauce. Fragrant rice and naan bread accompanied our meals.
Rice with style
Both dishes excelled in presentation and the home style cooking and fresh ingredients were evident with spicy Indian flavours bursting in every mouthful.
Indian Spicy Villa is tucked in between the Wynnum Central Woolworths in Florence Street and Tingal Road near the Wynnum Central railway station.
The restaurant is BYO and open 7 days a week from 4.30pm with their own home delivery service for Wynnum and surrounding suburbs. Call 3161 6185 to order or to make a reservation. Check out the website for menu details and stay up to date on Facebook.
