An authentic taste of India right in the heart of Northriding, Spice Café is a blend of traditional Indian ambience with a hint of the modern aesthetics that make up a good café. A menu stuffed to bursting with authentic Indian dishes and saturated with aromatic spices ties it up in a nice bow and makes it the perfect spot for a bonding session over drinks and nibbles; whether it’s you and a beau or a group of buddies.A combination of starter platters and main meals gives your taste-buds the opportunity to travel the metaphorical spice route without ever having to leave you chair. Pick and choose your flavour from the starters platter – which includes a variety of tasty nibbles to whet your appetite – before perusing the menu for something a bit more substantial. With options like Durbs Style Chicken Curry with chicken pieces, cooked with potato in masala gravy or Lamb Bhuna Gosht – de-boned lamb pieces cooked with onion, in thick gravy – or even Paneer Masala for the herbivores and herbivoyeurs with Indian cottage cheese, cooked with tomato, in a rich gravy, there’s something for every taste. Finish off with a drink each, and there’s no better way to spend an evening.
