Spicy Affair Indian Restaurant


Spicy Affair in Kenmore is an ambient, little Indian restaurant renowned for its flavoursome, authentic Indian cuisine.

Located on Moggill Road, Spicy Affair is arguably the best Indian restaurant on Brisbane's westside, winning over locals with its  delicious Indian fare, friendly service, and stunning decor featuring gorgeous Indian chandeliers, imported timber furniture, and bronzed walls with a waterfall backdrop behind the bar.

The mouth-watering menu boasts a unique blend of ethnic and progressive dishes prepared by Indian-born chef and owner Jixon Chirayil, who has more than 18 years experience cooking south and north Indian cuisine. Start with tasty appetisers such as hand-made samosas, onion bhajia, cauliflower pakoras, and melt-in-your-mouth chicken tikka (marinated in yoghurt and spices, cooked over charcoal in an authentic tandoori oven).
