The brainchild of former Aki’s head chef Vikram Arumugam, this unassuming eatery takes inner-west dwellers on a sojourn through the subtleness of India’s south. At Nithik's Kitchen, There’s flair and there are soft touches, with assured service to boot. An ethereal pancake houses sweet blue swimmer crab, while crisp dosa dares to be dipped in sambar coconut chutney. But it’s the chef’s quirky signature orange kulfi, blended with various other fruits, that will leave you speechless.
