If you’re craving authentic Indian cuisine, you don’t need to jump on a plane and head for India – hop on a train and head for Little India instead!
In the late 1970s, Indian migrants flocked to the Western Sydney suburb of Harris Park, and now, over 40 years later, the district affectionately known as ‘Little India’ is a melting pot of culture and seriously good food.
According to the locals, one of the best eateries in the area is Chatkazz. Specialising in vegetarian street-food, and with a dedication to bringing Sydneysiders the best homegrown cuisine outside of India, Chatkazz has over 200 flavour-packed dishes on the menu, including rich chickpea stews, puffy flatbreads and mouth-watering samosas.
Just around the corner, Not Just Curries is another local pick with a commitment to replicating India’s home food. Like the name suggests, this restaurant is all about opening Australian eyes (and mouths!) to the wonderful and diverse flavours from all regions of India. On the menu, you’ll find dishes from cuisines that date back thousands of years like house favourites, Tawa Goat and the delicious Dheli-Style Butter Chicken.
Whether you’re hungering for authentic Indian street food, traditional favourites, or delectable dishes you’ve probably never heard of, Little India should definitely be at the top of your foodie bucket list.
