The Delhi 6 restaurant on Childers St is so new it’s just a hole in the ground on Google Maps.
The most striking thing when one walks in are the garish fibre optic lit chandeliers.
Random suggested I should try it out in yesterday’s review and tempted me with visions of a goat curry.
Sadly arriving at 12ish I was informed that the goat curry takes longer to cook and is generally not available until 2.
While disappointing this did suggest they were making them fresh and also that there was some care for quality control.
Lunch comes in the “Vegetarian Combo” and “Non-Vegetarian Combo” varieties for $9.90.
The combo is a naan bread, rice, and a curry from a short list.
They have quite nice couches to sit on and it took about five minutes from walking in the door to walking out.
My chicken vindaloo was pretty good, excellent even. it had two large hunks of chicken with connective tissue, and by the time I was done my nose was running and I was sweating profusely.
Which is exactly what one wants from a vindaloo.
Having said that the heat wasn’t over-powering, I was able to taste the rich flavours.
For the faint hearted they do ask just how hot you want the curry and I asked for “quite hot” which is apparently an acceptable unit.
Definitely worth a go.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
