There’s a new place to get a taste of India in Brisbane. Those hungry for dishes such as dosa and idli can head to Sankalp, a world-famous Indian restaurant that recently opened in Aspley.
Here, diners can order authentic South Indian dishes including dosas or thin crepes that come with non-vegetarian flavours; idli or rice pancakes; and uthappa, a thicker version of dosa usually served with toppings.
The restaurant is the brainchild of Sunil Thakkar and Kandarp Makadia, who opened the city’s first Sankalp restaurant in Annerley in 2017. The two Sankalp restaurants in Brisbane are among the 150 Sankalp locations worldwide.
The restaurant, which occupies the space previously occupied by Fasta Pasta on Gympie Rd, looks very similar to its first location in Annerley. The 125-seat venue’s simple interiors, dominated by hues of red and touches of wood, keep the customers’ focus on the food.
They are proud to use traditional recipes for their curry bases, which are all made with gluten-free and dairy-free ingredients. They use tandoor, a special type of oven made of clay when cooking their naan. Naan is a bread made from maida, an Indian white flour that is similar to pastry flour.
Aside from their flavourful dosas, Sankalp’s paneer methi garlic, a curry made with 28 spices is a crowd favourite in their original location.
Sankalp offers takeaway and delivery services in addition to dine-in. For more information about Sankalp Aspley including trading hours and contactless delivery, visit their website or follow them on social media.
