The city of Hong Kong in Asia should ring a bell with most people. After all, we often see it being promoted in movies, magazines, and travel brochures. It is not hard to see why, though. One of the most densely populated regions in the world, Hong Kong is well-known for having a technologically-advanced society, a lively entertainment scene, and a thriving food hub. There are also popular tourist attractions, such as the iconic Victoria Harbor and Hong Kong Disneyland, which are great places to visit for families on holiday. Day trips to Macau and Lantau Island are also usually included on most traveler’s itineraries. Although Hong Kong may be well-known for dim sum and Cantonese delicacies, you might be surprised that there are other food options that are worth your while. Should you be craving for a taste of Mumbai, fret not for we have compiled a list of Indian restaurants in Hong Kong.

1. Indian Village

Still didn't decide where to have for dinner on Happy Friday?? Come to Indian Village and try our CHICKEN MAKHANI and enjoy a great night with friends!! BY MIRACLEGEND

Posted by Indian Village on Thursday, 3 April 2014

It’s easy to miss this restaurant as it is a small establishment located along Mosque Street. Do not expect much for decoration as the restaurant has only the basic necessities. The food, however, is another story. The menu is extensive and features a wide range of traditional Indian delicacies such as tikka masala, madras, and roti breads. Whether you are dining in or getting takeaway, be sure to order the fish tikka and the chicken makhani or butter chicken.

2. Jashan


This fancy Indian restaurant in the Soho area of Hong Kong has been around for decades, and for good reason, too. You can expect nothing less but quality food that has combined traditional and modern concepts. Try the restaurant’s signature Bombay Tawa Chicken, which is roasted chicken marinated with sweet paprika, turmeric, and sea salt served with chilled cucumber in a yoghurt dip. If you’re feeling very hungry, we recommend coming during lunch and indulging in over 20 dishes at their mega lunch buffet promotion.

3. Bombay Dreams


Bombay Dreams is another Indian gem on the Hong Kong food map that you should consider trying. We suggest making an advanced booking to avoid disappointment as the queue can get very long. Like all good Indian restaurants, their menu is so extensive that it could give you a headache from just trying to choose. Try the Paneer Curry, Chicken Tandoori and their samosas. If you would like some healthier options, you can even request for your meal to be gluten-free. Go for the lunch or brunch buffet if you’re feeling peckish.
