Tasty Bite was “the” number one rated restaurant in Port Moresby, although since the foodie scene has opened up, it may have dropped down the list.
Tasty Bite is diagonally across from Crowne Plaza which is great for those of us that work in Town or live close. They open for dinner at 5:30pm, and are generally very quick with takeaway orders, so I have rung them 321-2222/71114012, placed an order and picked up on the way home.
Tasty Bite is a small restaurant – but also has a separate upstairs area for groups. The following is the main area:
They have had a few issues with getting robbed, so normally have a few guards around the place and the door is generally locked. We tend to takeaway anyway, and have only had a sit down meal a couple of times.
Service is normally very quick, and they do plain chips (not on the menu) for fussy kids.
Currie’s can waver between being hot and bland, and on a good night it’s 10/10 – on a bad night it’s a 6/10 better than average. I love a good Vindaloo, and Tasty Bite always seems to get this right.
The only issue is that their takeaway containers sometimes leak so be careful on the way home :).
We always come back though, and prefer it over Tandorri which is down at Harbourside due to the fussy child that needs chips. And it’s reasonably priced; tonight’s meal of a Rogan Josh, Vindaloo and Boneless Butter Chicken, with 3 lots of Rice, 3 Naan and a container of Chips is just K160. That’s cheaper than the local Indian back home – and much nicer. The curries here are more Indian curry than Fiji Indian Curry like we get back in NZ, but still nothing like the real thing in India.
Tasty Bite also uses Go Food PNG for deliveries – a great service that we use often for various food outlets
Wow things are looking up in PNG. Might have to come back as a tourist.
