IT’S MIRCHI – Healthy Indian was our stopover last Sunday evening catching up with friends. Vicki and I have made it a point to get social at least once a month and meet with friends whom we have not seen over the last many months due to the Lock down caused by #COVID19.
If you want really good Indian food there is a new kid on the block called It’s Mirchi. Its is situated in Given Terrace in Paddington, Brisbane. Over the years a number of restaurants have lived at that address. The last time I visited was in 2013 when the premises was the home of a Lebanese restaurant.
About The Decor!
When you walk into the establishment you can sense the freshness of the place and the decor is so different to what you see in many Indian restaurants in the city. Its got a richness to the place and you are made comfortable with the welcoming smiles of the waitress.
What Your Can Expect About The Service!
From the moment we entered the restaurant, right through the meal and to the end when departing I could feel the warmth the staff gave us. Nothing seemed too much for any of them. Though the restaurant didnt have too many patrons that night because of physical distancing laws in place, though I felt the kitchen was busy with takeout. In-spite of that we didnt have to wait too long for our meals.
Quality Of The Meals!
We settled for 3 main meals and two breads. We had
- Mushroom Masala $18.90 – This dish was in a thick curry sauce with fresh mushrooms cooked in the curry sauce. Very flavorful.
- Daal Saagwala 17.90 – Pan cooked lentil curry, seasoned with ginger and garlic – $17.90
- Green Mung Masala $17.90 – Home made mung curry with fresh tomato sauce, seasoned with ginger, garlic and light spices.
- Gluten free Roti
- Garlic Naan
- Mango Laasi
- Mango Kulfi
The mains were fresh, god flavor and I through enjoyed the dishes we selected. We opted for medium heat where chili is concerned and I felt we chose well. The level of heat was just right for us to enjoy our meal. I did not feel any after effects the next day. Great food.
The Price Range!
The main meals range from $17.90 to $26.90, There is a takeout service that seems very popular from the bags walking out through the door that evening.
Off street parking is available.
