One of the restaurants located in Martins Plaza, Spice Bazaar specialises in serving Indian cuisine. The dishes that can be enjoyed range from those that are typically seen at Indian restaurants to more unique dishes for those that feel a bit adventurous.
Their Biryani Rice is available with chicken, lamb, beef or vegetables. The chicken we chose was cooked just right with a bit of char-grilled flavour. The rice that formed a key part of the dish was light and fluffy and the spices used in the dish delivered a delectable spicy punch. Some raita is served with the dish to temper its spiciness.

One of the more unique dishes that be enjoyed, the chunks of chicken in the Chicken Saag were of a good size. The degree of spiciness should be suitable for most palates. Enough spinach was used to give the curry its characteristic green colour. However, we thought the dish could have used more pieces chicken to make it a bit more enjoyable to eat.

We were delighted that the chunks of beef in the Beef Vindaloo were not too tough as they can sometimes be overcooked. Enough chilli was used to give the dish a potent spicy kick and it had the background tangy flavour that you would expect from a good Vindaloo.
Great for sating your hunger, the crisp exterior of their Onion Bhaji contrasted well with the soft interior. They also had a delectable earthy flavour from the gram (chickpea) flour that forms a key part of the dish. Accompanying the dish was mint sauce that the Onion Bhaji can be dipped in to add more flavour.

The portion size of their Naan was quite generous, with the slight toasted flavour from being cooked in a tandoor. They also had a wonderfully fluffy texture and their plain flavour served as a good foil to the spicy dishes. Those that want something tastier can consider ordering the Garlic Naan, which includes some minced garlic for a hint of garlicky flavour.
