Chatkazz has been one of its first kind of a restaurant in Australia serves freshly made,live Indian Street Food such as DOSAs, Drinks like Nimbu Soda etc.
The menu may be based on the no-frills street food that co-owner Dharmesh Rangparia recalls from his childhood, but inside this busy eatery, he’s taken a more polished approach to fast food where the only thing that is quick is the service. Using skills he learned from his accomplished chef father, Dharmesh gave up his accounting job and with the help of two former classmates, opened up a small cafe. While there was no real restaurant experience between them, he proved adept in the kitchen, even taking a run at MasterChef India while he was there getting some formal culinary training. Now, three years on, that little 15-seat takeaway shop has turned into a 125-seat restaurant that serves refined version of foods such as the masala pav, a sort of tomato and onion-based gravy stuffed inside a bread roll. But here, the Chatkazz version is served on a plate with the gravy ladled on top of the bread. So posh.
Walking through the narrow streets, with 'larris' on either sides... the smell of garma garam 'Gathiya and Jalebi'... the rattle of 'Pav-bhaji' wala's tava... the sight of garam Bhajiya... the packets of mouth watering Pani Puri... the Farsan shop where each item tempts you... starting from Khaman dhokla to Samosa to Khandvi... Simply irresistible! We missed all of these and many more such experiences, but not any longer! This is the reason Chatkazz was created.
