Authentic South Indian Food has two food vans which can be brought to your place for your next event.  Our food can be served to you in the traditional Indian way on steel thali plates and using biodegradable environmental friendly cutlery. Being a green business, we are keen on reducing our ecological footprint, all the while giving an authentic indian experience. We have eftpos available as well which accepts all major cards.

Since our cuisine is south Indian, we have experts in tasty and healthy vegan food. The most popular being the south Indian staple – Masala Dosa. All our condiments are homemade by John, whether it is the coconut chutney to go with the Dosa or the sweet and fiery Date pickle that goes well with the gluten free Biriyani.

Our range of homemade pickles are an exquisite addition to a gift hamper as they go very well with a variety of cheese. You can buy a bottle of these pickles from one of our stalls or by calling/emailing us directly.

Red or yellow lime pickle- tangy and fiery made with the organic limes in our garden.

Date pickle- sweet and hot

We also can make other pickles including meat or fish according to order.
