Great Indian in Kensington Market!
I went to Waterfalls Restaurant for dinner a few nights ago and I can't stop thinking about how good the food was. It's simple, casual, well priced and the service was great. Their menu is large, especially since they present themselves as a tapas restaurant.
We started with the apps platter with samosas: light pastry and tasty veg filling, onion bajias, pakoras and it was all fresh, nicely presented, not oily at all which is hard to find, and the sauces were tasty and well balanced. I then had the two curry plate with lamb kurma and fish kerala.
The lamb was tender and so flavourful, the coconut curry sauce thick, rich but not too heavy, and again, not oily. The fish curry had a lovely tamarind flavoured sauce. Served with perfectly cooked basmatic rice, a little pot of mango pickle and another pot of raita, with papadums. I tasted my friends shrimp curry and i'll be going back for that soon. We shared an order of saag paneer, and although I found it a bit too creamy, the cheese was top quality and a lovely texture. The naan was some of the best naan I've had in the city, light, tender and delish.
I love the way they presented the food, all on one big plate but the curries were each in a little bowl, filled to the top. Portion sizes were generous and I had a second meal from my leftovers. We sat on the little patio, enjoyed watching the people go by while we ate our yummy curry, and drank a Mills St pint each and the bill came to around $85.00 incl tax and tip.
My friend has been there 4 times now and each time she raves so I'll be joining her again soon for more well made, great quality food. It's been a while since I've enjoyed a meal as much in Little India and while Lahore is around the corner, I'll be heading to Kensington instead.
