Have you been to Masala Theory lately?

Masala Theory Overview

Traditional Indian, with a funky, new twist is turning Masala Theory on Crown Street in Surry Hills into a hipster food haven. Newly open, Masala hits the spot for a leisurely alfresco lunch, or drop in for dinner and take a seat at a mosaic tiled table beneath a neon bicycle and eclectic artwork, depicting Indian maidens on skateboards. Bollywood meets old school curry in a creative menu packed with punchy flavours and innovative presentation, starting with the Three Sisters Chaat of crispy fried spinach, beans, chickpeas, yoghurt, date tamarind and mint chutney. Share a plate of village fish curry in coconut milk broth with lemongrass and kaffir lime, accompanied by basmati rice, garlic naan and butter roti, before a cool finish of creamy kulfi ice cream, flavoured with betel nut leaves.

Masala Theory Menu Sample

Chef’s special goat curry with black cardamom, cinnamon, onion and tomato gravy and matchstick potatoes.
