Fragrance of India is the newest food stall to open in the 8 Street Food Mall in the heart of Surfers Paradise, opening in June 2018. Fragrance of India is not just your average cheap food stall, this place serves up delicious authentic Indian cuisine and street food, using good quality, fresh ingredients. All of the curries at Fragrance of India are gluten free and msg free and all of the food is certified Halal. There are also some Vegan and Dairy free options available.
I went in for lunch and choose the choice of 2 curries with rice and a papadam for $12.95. I choose my favourite Indian curry, the Chicken Tikka Masala and the lovely lady behind the counter recommended I also try the Chicken Madras curry.
The Chicken Tikka Masala was excellent, one of the best Tikka Masalas I have eaten in a while. The Chicken Madras was also fantastic with a real spicy bite to it!
