Inspired by her passion for cooking and with a discerning palate for good food, Lalitha Rajan quit her high-flying executive corporate job and founded Tadka Boom! - bringing well-loved family recipes from her kitchen to the rest of Melbourne. 

Joined by her son, Ashwin Rajan, the duo present a unique menu that is a natural extension of Mama Rajan's cooking style - fresh and healthy, driven by the bold flavours of traditional Indian spices, fused with the modern Australian love of gourmet.

We are new age Indian – with an emphasis on using only the freshest produce and highest quality ingredients. Mirroring the diversity of our beautiful homeland, we offer a little something for everyone. All made fresh - daily - with a Mama's love.

We invite you to come and share our journey, and see how Tadka Boom! is redefining modern Indian cuisine.
