With the festive season in full swing many people interested in hosting parties are looking for something different and exciting. In an era where trends have shorter shelf lives than torrid romances a band of brothers is setting fire to Terrey Hills with their innovative indoor and semi outdoor approach. Urban Tadka has a number of accolades under their belt including IABCA award for Indian Restaurant of the Year 2014 and Savour Australia’s best Indian restaurant in Australia for 2013. The brain child of Dimpy and Mandeep, Urban Tadka puts a really good spin on some of the drinks and dishes we love to eat. Their food is truly spicy and by that I don’t mean hot.
The spice factor in Indian food has always been associated and misconstrued to be the chilli factor. In fact nothing could be farther from the culinary truth. The dishes are aromatic and delicious. The magical combination of spices used to enhance the natural flavours of the top quality ingredients used comes through like gentle wafts of a sea breeze that delights you by the beach. It doesn’t break away from the beautiful ambience but only enhances how you savour the pleasure of being there. But Urabn Tadka is more than food and drink. It is a hospitality experience. The outdoor entertainment marquee set up next to the restaurant can host over 150 people. It’s the perfect combination of outdoor space used for entertainment with access to indoor seating and dining areas that help when you want to sit and grab a bite, put your feet to rest after some dancing or just sit and have a conversation with friends. With Bollywood theme parties becoming more popular this venue is built to sing, dance, cater and host an unforgettable party. And if you don’t believe me then just have a look at the pictures! The event featured was the McCarroll’s
Automotive Group’s year end celebration. McCarroll’s is a family owned and operated business that has been serving customers since opening their first Ford dealership in Cooma in 1978. In the 35 years since then, they have developed a reputation for building strong relationships with customers, delivering excellent performance for their manufacturers and playing an active role in the local community. This year the group’s founder and owner Phil McCarroll clearly had Bollywood on his mind especially because he cites the Indian community being an important part of his client base. Phil, his son Steve and extended McCarroll family, which includes their staff, all carry the philosophy to “treat every customer as you would a guest in your own home”. This time around Dimpy, Mandeep and Inder (the new partner at U.T.) treated the McCarroll family to a wonderful night of Bollywood-esque celebration at Urban Tadka in Terrey Hills
