Our History

Ali Thannithurakkal was an incorrigible Indian who was passionate about food, drinks and the performing arts with an enormous 13+ years of experience in the restaurant and service industry in India, Middle East and the United Kingdom.

Spice Merchant was the brainchild of Ali Thannithurakkal. Opened in December 2005, Spice Merchant is where all his favourite pastimes came together under one roof. This startlingly unusual restaurant quickly established a South Indian specialised Indian food service base with his expert guidance and leadership.

Ali Thannithurakkal concentrates on practices to provide guests with a fine dining experience and value by serving affordable cuisine with attentive service in a lively place. To this day its eclectic mix of drinks, food and service make it one of Malmesbury's 'must try' experiences!
