Sorry to be so dramatic… but I think you need to know. If by any chance you came across my post recently about Suraj Indian Cuisine in Mt Lawley, and thought it looked like the kind of place you want to try out, then you’d better do it soon.
According to Roger, Suraj will be closing down in a little over a week. Making way for a new restaurant development that will span the shop next door as well as the current Suraj premises.
All I have to say that it’s a great shame that a place serving food as simple and honest as this is closing down. If you haven’t yet been in, then do yourself a favour. Put aside any preconceived notions about food, service, and ambience, and taste the love for yourself.
Last time I spoke to him, Roger did say that there is a possibility he will open up somewhere else, but the general consensus was that if he couldn’t find another shop to rent in a decent area for a reasonable price, then that would be the end of it.
My other suggestion of just coming round to Rogers place whenever I have a hankering for chicken korma, chickpea curry, and a decent poori, didn’t really get the response I was looking for.
Get in now before it’s gone.

Matt, I hope this isn’t a sign of the demise of plastic tablecloth restaurants in Mount Lawley, because the variety is one of the things I love about the suburb. You can go to one restaurant and enjoy an $11 curry on your plastic tablecloth, go to the restaurant next door and have $40 crayfish on linen. Long live the plastic tablecloth!
On another note, thanks for the use of the phrase “do yourself a favour”. It makes me feel like I’m watching Countdown. I hope you’re on less drugs than Molly Meldrum was when he used to say it.
Good thing the plastic tableclothes are there too, or I’d be scrubbing curry sauce out of linen for weeks… And yes, lets hope the diversity sticks around in Mt Lawley. If only to give lazy food bloggers less to complain about :)
I’m glad you appreciate the “do yourself a favours”… I’m often stuck with how to end a post succinctly, and then Blondie comes on the radio and it all falls in to place :)
Sad that another great eating place is to vanish – I wonder of he’s considered a move to the outer (Northern) suburbs.
Butler would be a good start. . .
