Traditional Indian food served in a humble setting makes Hello India a trustworthy pick.
February 20, 2014
Say hello to some of the best Indian food you've tasted at this little restaurant on Sandgate Road. Although the décor is rather modest, the food and prices will impress. The simple seating area and outside tables quickly fill up, especially on a weekend, and there is a constant stream of takeaway orders, a testament to the popularity of this humble restaurant.
Naan bread is a necessity at an Indian restaurant to ensure none of the tasty sauce gets wasted. Coeliacs and wheat intolerant food lovers rejoice as you have not been forgotten as makki rotti, made from corn flour, is a great naan substitute. Another favourite are vege samosas, Hello India's are packed full of potatoey goodness and enclosed in a crunchy shell.
If you are a stranger to lamb saag, do yourself a favour and select it as a main. The creamy spinach curry features tender pieces of lamb and is packed full of flavour. As a fan of creamy coconut curries the chicken peanut masala is hard to beat. For those who run hot, select the chilli curry consisting of capsicum, chillies and soya sauce. Keep your cool and top off a quality Indian feast with a rose lassi. It's refreshing and remarkably similar to a liquid turkish delight.
If you'd rather stay in the comfort of your trackie dacks than eat out, you're in luck as Hello India delivers to select northern suburbs such as Ascot, Wilston and Virginia. They also have an easy peasy ordering system online. After ordering through the website the restaurant will send through a confirmation SMS and you'll be able to get your hot little hands on a delicious dinner in no time at all.
Hello India may not have the most spectacular interior but they know how to run a restaurant. Consistently good food and service with a smile makes eating there (or in front of the TV with a mango curry) a delight.
