Healthy Indian food is super nourishing. The thali is amazing and generous portions. Turmeric latte was really yummy too (made with coconut milk - they've thought of everything!) Very reasonable priced, especially considering the quality and thoughtful menu. Lovely staff.

The best Indian food I’ve ever eaten, served quickly and with a smile. I can’t recommend this place enough! Especially for someone with gluten/dairy allergies. Beautiful little restaurant run by a mother and daughter who are happy to talk you through the menu. Highly recommend!

Vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free ETON MESS cake to celebrate a very exciting announcement 🎉⠀
⠀
Remember when @chachasicecream was on Campbell Parade? ⠀
⠀
Well, Chachas is GOING BACK there!⠀
Our Hall Street Bondi Beach location will now be fully Nalinis with more seating, more drinks 🍷 ☕️ 🍵 more dessert 🧁 🍮 🍰 and exciting menu options 🙌⠀
⠀
Of course you can still get your @chachasicecream fix at Nalinis! We’ll still have a good range of flavors. ⠀
⠀
We felt combing the food and ice cream was doing both of them and injustice.
⠀
This way the space better suits the needs of a cafe/restaurant and if you needed more flavours because we can never have too many options, @chachasicecream will literally be a hop, skip and a jump away. ⠀
⠀
As a result our Bondi Beach location on Hall Street will be closed from Tuesday as we move things around and make the space cosy with more seating.⠀
⠀
We’ve curated an winter menu and we’re BEYOND EXCITED for you to try it - taking Ayurvedic, seasonal dining to a new level 😇⠀
Comforting ramen with an intensely flavoursome broth, light but so satisfying, packed with veggies and low on oil 🍜 ⠀
After having about 3 a day for a week, I became quite the ramen connoisseur 😆⠀
⠀
Inspired by the amazing vegan ramen I had at @tsrestaurant_jp I am so excited to add our Ayurvedic spin on this amazing Japanese classic⠀
⠀
From next week, our curry ramen will be available at all our outlets. Perfect for going into winter, our ramen will be ⠀
⠀
⭐️ Loaded with ginger, pepper and sesame which creates a beautiful warmth⠀
⭐️ More Veggies to noodle ratio⠀
⭐️ Intensely flavoursome and nourishing ⠀
⭐️ Saltiness in the miso encouraging the dry colon to stay moist liquefying Vata⠀
⠀
😇 Don’t worry, Moringa soup will make a comeback too 😇⠀ 📸@monkeyandmekitchenadventures
Have you been craving sweet tastes lately? ⠀ 🤔 What is the Ayurvedic perspective on sugar?⠀ Perfect bite sized, protein packed vegan cinnamon and ginger donuts sweetened with primarily bananas and rice malt 🍩⠀
⠀
Firstly, according to Ayurveda, nothing is "bad" necessarily. It is all about balance and eating according to YOUR body. ⠀ 🎋 Ayurvedic or Western philosophy - both don't prefer refined sugars for obvious reasons. ⠀
⠀
From an Ayurvedic perspective, refined sugars affect all 3 dosha.⠀
i) They're overstimulating and hence have an increasing effect on Vata ⠀
ii) They cause liquid retention and weight gain and dullness - increasing Kapha⠀
iii) They're harder to digest placing strain on the liver and pancreas and thus affect Pitta. ⠀
⠀
Autumn which is characterised by dryness, roughness, wind are very similar to Vata dosha characterestics and hence Autumn is considered Vata season. ⠀
⠀
🧁🍬 Sweet, sour an salty taste are recommend in the Vata season to provide the necessary grounding. ⠀
⠀
If you find yourself reaching out for sweets/sweet tastes, the following can help satisfy the need for grounding your body so desires 😇⠀
⠀
1) Favor oily, nourishing foods that are high in protein, high in fat, cooked with warming, stimulating spices and served hot, will keep you grounded through the vata season⠀
⠀
2) Breakfasts: Cooked breakfast grains like porridge with spices, congee (with ginger and turmeric) are perfect at this time of year (Should we introduce our porridge again? 😉)⠀
⠀
3) Lunch and Dinner:  Cooked vegetables with spices (see a theme here? ☺️), hearty grains, soups, and stews are grounding and moisturizing.⠀
⠀
4) In general, you’ll want to reduce your consumption of raw vegetables, cold foods, as well as the bitter, pungent, and astringent tastes 👎 (If you’re having raw food, ensure they’re accompanied with higher fats eg. salads with oily dressing to balance out the opposite quality)
The only thing we love as much as cooking is ....renovating ⛏🧱🛠 😂⠀
⠀
We did up our Bondi Junction space 3 times in 3 years 😆⠀
⠀
With winter drawing in close, over the next couple of weeks we will be renovating our Bondi Beach outlet to make it even more cosy and have more seating. ⠀
😇⠀
⠀
We will announce the exact dates the shop will be closed for renovations once we finalise the dates with our tradies. ⠀
⠀
⠀
More seating and more cosiness mean more menu options at Bondi Beach. 🍜🥟🍕🍔🍱⠀

👸 The Modern day Royal Degustation 👸⠀
⠀
Indian cuisine is so steeped in history with cultural influences from Portuguese, Mughals and the British. ⠀
⠀
Today’s Indian food is a real culmination of all these influences that it is hard to believe certain staples of today’s Indian cuisine aren’t actually originally Indian at all.⠀
⠀
When we were thinking of a theme of Mother’s Day, we thought what would the kings and queens of the past have with today’s dietary habits. ⠀
⠀
Consequently we made these dishes vegan, and refined sugar free while still maintaining the integrity of these recipes. ⠀
⠀
The result was a mouthwatering feast that is also really easy on the tummy with Ayurveda and nutritional eating being our overarching theme.⠀
⠀
This is what our 14 course Mother’s Day degustation looked like (minus the desserts)⠀
⠀
Swipe right to see our Mother’s Day menu. ⠀
⠀
It was sooo much fun (and work! 🤣🤣) putting this together 😇
Mum spent Mother’s Day cooking up a feast and feeding other mummas. ⠀
💓⠀
⠀
I read somewhere that “If you live and lead by example in such a way that when children think about love, integrity, kindness and truth your children will think about you” - couldn’t agree more! ⠀
⠀
Working together with mum has brought us closer in ways I would’ve never thought. As a mother I know she’s pretty exceptional but seeing her as a co-worker has deepened our relationship even more so as we get to see each other’s strengths, talents and fears. ⠀
👩‍👧⠀
⠀
It is even more inspiring to see mum take on new challenges at her age and transcend her fears surprising all of us.⠀
👊⠀
⠀
I’m the lucky girl that gets to spend this lifetime learning from her as we both march on forward fulfilling our respective dharmas  in life, spiritually speaking 😇⠀
⠀
Another super inspirational mummy is our staff member Sammy. Sammy’s 3yr old daughter is in Nepal as Sammy juggles being a student and working for us just so she can secure a good future for her daughter. (Swipe right —>)⠀
⠀
I can only imagine how homesick she would feel everyday especially on significant days seeing others spending time with their children. ⠀
😭⠀
⠀
We’re truly surrounded by a resilient bunch of women and their awe inspiring work ethic. ⠀
Truly, hats off mummas! 🙇‍♀️
