THE best laid plans often go pear shaped, as ours seemed to be heading on our designated lunch day.
The venue we had chosen happened to be shut, so with a pout and a foot stamp we boarded a bus to Morley.
But as life pans out it turns out we made a serendipitous discovery at Coventry Markets with an Indian restaurant called Spice Rootz.
Lunch specials are under $15 and there’s plenty to choose from. We decided to share a mild goat curry and rice for $14.90 and a vegetable thali for $13.90.
The curried goat melted in the mouth and tasted delicious. Each dish had its own uniquely flavoured curry sauce.
The vegetable thali consisted of paneer in machan masala, chana (chick pea) in masala and sabji (mix veg) in a miloni curry sauce.
This was super nice and more than ample. A very satisfying and tasty lunch. BYO doggy bag for leftovers as they don’t supply containers.
The decor has a black and white theme with Omo white tablecloths offset with comfortable modern black chairs, which altogether presented a very sophisticated dining experience.
Staff were attentive and friendly. We would go back and take our friends.
Shop 4, 243-253 Walter Rd., Morley (Coventry Market).
