Spice Traders Dunedin Reviews
A Spicy Trade in Dunedin! Oct 21, 2009
Inside the Meridian Mall on the lowest level is the food court. During lunchtime you'll have to vie for a seat because it gets very busy with school kids on their breaks and hungry ladies needing a feed after a hard morning shopping.
If you enter the food court down the escalator turn left and you'll see the only Indian place in Dunedin worth buying from. It's called Spice Traders and this little place is an absolute gem. They sell a wide variety of different flavoured curries, and since Kiwi palates don't do hot food too well they also do each curry in mild, medium and hot. You can order to have there or take-away and I guarantee you'll walk away absolutely stuffed.
By far the best dish, and most popular of course, is the mild buttered chicken curry. Kiwi's LOVE buttered chicken. If you order it as a meal combo you get a plain naan bread, plus a bowl of the curry with a heap of rice and a small soft drink for $12.50 (Kiwi dollars). Trust me, it's more than enough food and in my opinion great value for money. If you don't finish it all, ask for a take away box to eat it later!
The staff are also really lovely and smile so much it's infectious! If you're looking for a nice hearty meal after trekking around Dunedin all day I recommend Spice Traders!
