Delhi inspired delights: Indian Roots
A light and fluffy naan bread dipped in a saucy curry is a favourite meal for many, and no surprise considering Indian cuisine is loved for being flavourful, warming and delicious.
The dream of husband-and-wife duo Kiah and Ron, Indian Roots celebrates authentic Indian cuisine, just as they remember from their life in India. After struggling to find an Indian restaurant in Christchurch that matched the flavours of food they loved, Ron and Kiah left their full-time jobs to start their very own restaurant.
The light and open space is vibrant and welcoming, filled with fragrant smells of freshly ground spices coming from the kitchen.
The menu will spoil you for choice, but much-loved favourites include the Mutton Seekh Masala – Mother-in-law’s go-to flame cooked seekh kebab finished in onion gravy, as well as the Chicken Changezi – an Old Delhi special dish with tangy flavours. Available for dining in or takeaway, enjoy authentic Indian food in the friendly restaurant or tucked up on the couch for a quiet night in.
For those with dietary requirements, there is no missing out here. All the curries are gluten-free, and there is a range of delicious vegan, vegetarian, and dairy-free options too. A keto offering is also in the works and will be available soon.
