Housed in a converted Brunswick warehouse space, Bhang specialises in regional Indian street food, incorporating lighter cooking styles from the southern regions with lots of coconut, red chilli, seafood and pork.
As well as serving up delicious meals all round, the restaurant's latest offering is a series of super affordable dinners. Called Thali Nights, they kicked off in March and will return every four to six weeks.
Each dinner is influenced by a different region in India, showcasing the different flavours and varieties on offer throughout the south Asian nation. Diners will eat their way through generous vegetarian and meat thali platters filled with street snacks and bites, dahl, curries, salads, pickles, pulao, pappas, puris, raitas, chutneys and Indian sweets, all for only $30.
For the uninitiated — and if the above description didn't give it away — thali platters are Indian meals made up of lots of small dishes, so it's basically a dream option for the indecisive. There'll be drinks on offer, though they're not included in the price. Understandably, bookings are essential.
