Among the several, I mean several north Indian cuisines in Brisbane, Australia, I was on a mission to find an Indian eatery which served primarily south Indian food.

What's the difference? North Indian style of cooking involves extra, extra use of cream and yoghurt, which make most curries less spicy and quite tangy compared to the south.

On the other hand, with south Indian dishes additional use of red chillies, chilli powder and spices are essential. In fact I can attest that most south Indian dishes are filled with an immense use of spicy spice, spice, spice.

Located at 41, Gladstone Road, Highgate Hill, there was my amazing discovery – Riverwalk Tandoori.

It offers a mixture of south and north Indian delicacies, as well as popular Malaysian and Indonesian delights all whipped up in one place.

Apart from the regulars like Butter Chicken, Rogan Josh and Vindaloo, Riverwalk Tandoori also offers dishes like Chicken Masala, Sambal Chicken, Beef Rendang, Assam Fish, Penang Tom Yam, Bengal Fish and much much more.

With over 50 curries to pick from, this Singaporean owned business has something for everyone, even vegetarians.

Highlights of my evening were – one, my Canadian friend Kimberly who impressed me with her astounding tolerance for spice; And two our menu selection.

We had the Sambal Chicken and Beef Rendang served with saffron rice, as well as Naan bread for gravy dips.

Cooked from finely blend red chillies, coconut milk, lemon grass and shrimp paste, the spicy sauce and sour tinge of lemon in the Sambal Chicken is an explosion of flavours.

Oh and the curry-like Beef Rendang look so appetising that you'll surely find yourself wanting to dig in as soon as it's served on your table – well I did. Tender beef served in spicy sweet sauce, all I can say is a big yum!

Moreover, the friendly wait-staff are quick to offer their services at anytime. In-case you're unsure of the traditional mixes, the team is always ready to answer questions as well.

All curries are priced below $16, which makes it a standard rate, and entrées from $6. Have a go at the Mango-Lassi while you're there – refreshing and a definite heat soother.
