In the centre of Riccarton, Christchurch, Southern Spice delivers a burst of Indian flavour to the local dining scene, inviting guests to experience a variety of rich spices.

Walk into Southern Spice, and you’ll be greeted by an atmosphere that’s as welcoming as the meals it offers. Its decor, featuring bright colours and traditional Indian touches, provides a cosy yet unique setting ideal for meals with mates or a duo spice adventure. The aroma of spices fills the air, ensuring an authentic experience for everyone.

Start your meal with appetisers that prepare you for the spicy symphony ahead. The crispy fried vegetable samosa, filled with a robust mix of potatoes and veggies, is a first-rate choice, as is the delicately spiced onion bhaji, a crispy mix of sliced onions in chickpea batter. For duos, the mixed platter for two is a substantial spread, including samosas, mixed pakoras, and the crowd-pleasing chicken tikka. The vegetarian appetiser platter, featuring a variety of samosas, pakoras, and pappadum, along with raita, mint chutney, and tamarind sauce, is sure to please any vegetarian.

After the spices from your starter have tingled your taste buds, consider a traditional Indian beverage to wash it all down. While the drinks menu is designed to complement the spicy dishes, the welcoming staff are on hand to help you pick your ideal match, ensuring your visit to Southern Spice is both memorable and complete.
