9marys, Perth

Have walked past this restaurant for a couple of times and love the modern, spacious feel to it. Lots of glass, Andy warhol-inspired prints etc. When I found out it was in fact an Indian restaurant, was floored. But then, who said Indian restaurants had to look a certain way? Anyway, we were on our way to watch a comedy show at a nearby theatre and decided to pop in for a quick dinner.

Started off with the Tandoori Tasting Plate ($34.00) which has a variety of lamb seekh kebab, chicken tikka, tandoori salmon, king prawns and tandoori paneer. I liked the kebab mostly coz it was tasty and retained the juices well. The chicken was a bit dry but otherwise pretty decent.

Garlic naan ($4.50). A bit oily, but fluffy and very good accompaniment to the dishes.

We had Saag Gosht ($25.50), which is lamb with spinach and also Fish Vindaloo. Tastewise I would say it’s rather authentic but portions were quite measly given the prices charged (but then, they’re in downtown Perth!). Also, I feel that the spiciness level for the Vindaloo has been toned down to suit the locals’ tastedbuds.

Overall, food was quite good and service, even if efficient was a tad cold in my opinion. But forum reviews seem to suggest that the set lunch is value for money so maybe that’s worth checking out.
