As far as my Adelaide Indian food knowledge goes, the Spice Kitchen is one of the most expensive restaurants around but if you love your Indian food or you have a special occasion such as 'I just won the lottery' this place is definitely an experience to get on board with. Just kidding about the lottery part, the meals are about $26-$30 which I consider a bit on the pricey side, but hey, I didn't have to claim bankruptcy on the way home from dinner. This is no hangover on a Sunday hit-up (which I indulge in more often than I'd like to admit), this is something to be planned, fasted for and savoured!
The restaurant is located in a beautiful old building on Kensington Road therefore the place has an old-school heritage feel. The decor is simple and classy with linen table cloths and dim lighting. As soon as you stroll through the doors of this 'Indian Food Heaven', the pungent aroma of Indian Spices hits you in the face like you're Kevin Foley on the streets of Adelaide.
On the menu - curries and korma and masala, OH MY! Dorothy, I don't think we are in Bland-sis anymore. These dishes pack plenty of KAPOW! And why not give them all a try? I indulged in a meal, or should I say feast, called 'The Spice Kitchen Thali'. Winner, winner chicken dinner, this was something to write home about! A tray comes out with a bunch of little pots of different curries so you get to try a whole variety. What an experience!
AND if you snagged the 'Split the Bill' voucher yesterday in the Advertiser (or willing to do some bin diving today) Spice Kitchen is a participating restaurant so you can get one of your meals half price. Get amoungst it my followers!
