Modern Indian @Masala Theory

Masala Theory is a new modern Indian restaurant on Crown Street in Surry Hills. With a funky modern fit out to match, the interior is bright and vibrant with plently of colour. With a touch of Bollywood and some flourescent light. The restaurant puts forward a modern twist on classic Indian flavours. Vegetarian options are also available. 

We sampled much of the menu through the banquet, starting at $45. We were glad to see some classics being served including; naan, raita, pickle, goat curry, butter chicken and masala dosa is always a favourite.

There were also some interesting options including the bubble gum lassi which was nice enough, however next time I will go for my favourite, the mango lassi.

Other interesting dishes include the crispy tasty fried prawns, the wada pav which is a slider with a potato dumpling sauced with a garlic chilli  and mint chutney and the keema pav which is a slider with spiced lamb mince.

For dessert we had the deconstructed motichoor laddoo, a nice dessert to finish with, usually a deep fried dumpling simmered in sugar syrup. Thankfully this version was not too sweet.

Although friendly, service was a little slow, which is common with newly opened restaurants. As always with Indian food, plenty of flavour and keeping it interesting with a modern twist. This along with the funky fitout making and modern music making for a decent dining experience.

We thank Masala Theory for their hospitality and for inviting us to enjoy their modern interpretation on Indian cusine.
