You’ll smell Thousand Spices before you see it. The pungent aroma wafting down the street and a modest yet packed dining room signals you’ve hit pay dirt. The menu is crammed with everything that’s delightful about Indian food: thalis, dosas, curries, lassies and kulfi. Palak patta chaat is a satisfying mound of crisped spinach leaves smothered in chilli, tamarind and yoghurt sauces. A curry, flush with prawns, delivers a three-chilli spice kick. Save shaking the butter chicken addiction for another day - the rendition here finds a perfect balance of sweet and spice that shouldn’t be missed.
