I discovered Abhi's Indian Restaurant in the Entertainment Book and after searching for reviews online, found out that it is a rather popular place. It is the sister restaurant to Aki's Indian Restaurant in Woolloomooloo which proudly boasts one SMH chef's hat on its website. No chef's hat for the North Strathfield setup but the reviews prompted me to make a booking instead of just dropping by.
The garlic naan was fresh and good to mop up the curry sauce.
I picked the vegetable pilau for us to share and I was glad - the veggies add more flavour and colour to the meal.
The seafood moily reminded me of the laksa that I like to get for lunch from Happy Chef. The coconut soup tasted exactly the same! My friend hardly ate any of this dish and I was forced to do clean up duty on it - I felt like it would have been a shame to waste given how long we had waited for the meal!
I probably wouldn't come back. The food was nice but quite average and not standout enough for a return visit. It is on the pricier side but definitely seemed popular with the locals.
