It's Mirchi


Paddington’s authentic Indian restaurant It’s Mirchi exudes the charm of a time when rich and exquisite banquets were cooked for royalty.

Traditional décor surrounds the wooden dining tables and chairs with crisp white table cloths and golden cutlery, jewelled ornaments, ornately decorated elephants and brightly coloured sheets that hang elegantly from the ceiling.

The name, It’s Mirchi, honours the Mirchi (chilli) spice used throughout the ethnic culinary delights.

With an incredible array of dishes, each one showcasing its own unique balance of flavours, a three course meal gives diners the opportunity to fully experience the love of the chef, who cooks at It’s Mirchi the same way she does in her own home.

The owners play the perfect hosts, talking with regular customers on a first name basis as though they old friends. This level of intimacy makes any diner want to return in couples, double dates and for group celebrations to enjoy a humble dining experience.

Paired with a refreshing international beer or a local wine, the Chicken 65 is a great way to commence the ethnic food journey. This dish encompasses a variety of spices and has been inspired by traditional Indian cooking methods.

The vegetable samosas, which are commonly found at road-side vendors in India, are a delight with sizeable pieces of spiced vegetables and a delicious homemade date and tamarind chutney.

However seafood is the specialty of It’s Mirchi. The Prawns Moilee uses only the freshest seafood with ginger, garlic and coconut cream, to be accompanied by freshly made Indian breads such as roti or naan. Served in tradition dishes, the main meals are deceptively filling and perfect for sharing to explore the variety of flavours.

It's Mirchi also offers an extensive 'healthy menu' featuring a host of gluten free and vegan dishes, with a range of delicious gluten-free naan.

In a nutshell: It’s Mirchi is an authentic Indian dining spot which welcomes visitors with its humble service, rich décor and a tantalising food experience.

Need to know: It's Mirchi also does takeaway (and home delivery within a designated range of the restaurant).
