Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : November 19th 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, November 20, 2008 37 DINING Alive www.innerwestweekly.com.au Thousand ways to spice life The malai kebab (above) and paneer tikka (above left) are deliciously authentic Indian fare at Thousand Spices. Pictures: PHIL BLATCH NAME: Thousand Spices WHERE: 23 The Crescent, Homebush. Phone 9746 1144 OPEN: Every day for dinner, closed Sunday lunch PROFILE: Zilka Grogan LOOKS can be deceiving. Thousand Spices is a little Indian eatery opposite Homebush railway station that, on first impression, seems like your local takeaway. Beyond its casual decor, this humble restaurant has one promise for patrons: authentic Indian food at affordable prices. The restaurant opened in 2004 and was so successful in its original location that a second, more formal, restaurant opened doors in Crows Nest. Owner and chef Amit Behal said despite the current economic uncertainities, the restaurant did not pass costs to customers. His secret to success. ''We offer real Indian food, no Westernisation,'' Mr Behal said. ''It's just as you would get back in Delhi or Bombay.'' Prices range from $4 to $9 for entrees and $8.90 to $15 for main courses. We were served the restaurant's two more popular dishes -- paneer tikka (cottage cheese marinated with yoghurt and spices for $8); and malai kebab (tender chicken pieces spiced with green cardamom for $8.90). Banquet menus are available from $25 for vegetarians and $27.50 for meat lovers. Thousand Spices opens seven days for dinner and six days for lunch, closing only on Sunday lunchtime. Catering is also available for functions. 1 George St, NORTH STRATHFIELD 9746 8746 www.ilcuore.com.au Set menus Drink packages Fully Licenced Ample parking MONDAY TO FRIDAY LUNCH FROM 12PM MONDAY TO SATURDAY DINNER FROM 6PM SUNDAY FUNCTIONS WELCOME Traditional Italian Cuisine with a BOOK YOUR CHRISTMAS FUNCTION NOW! 2291622K IWW
