The decor is as loud as the flavours at this 'neo-Indian' eatery on Crown Street. The interior is decked out with technicolour murals and Hindi street signs – there’s even your requisite bike-tacked-onto-the-wall, complete with pink neon rims. The food is best summed up as traditional flavours and ingredients presented with a novel twist, from mint and masala lamb sliders to a chai panna cotta. However, there’s little need for all the fusion-y obfuscation, because it’s the classic dishes at Masala Theory that taste best, like the salli boti, a fragrant goat curry of black cardamom, cinnamon, onion and tomato gravy, simply embellished with a hat of matchstick potatoes.
