Chautari Restaurant, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
I am no expert when it comes to Indian food, I know what I like and don’t like but wouldn’t be able to say if it’s the ‘best’ I have eaten! I was catching up with the lovely N and Z in Hong Kong. We have dined at some wonderful places in Hong Kong but thought we’d do something simpler this time round.
Chautari can be found in Hong Kong cooked food market in Sheung Wan. It is the same place where ABC Kitchen is – a favourite of ours. There were so many choices, Chinese, Thai but considering I haven’t had any Indian food in Hong Kong, thought we would give it ago.
A special set dinner for HKD 115 (AUD14) was on offer – appetizers (samosa, chicken tikka and pappadam) and a choice of main course and either naan or rice. Z and I thought this was an awesome deal and ordered the special set dinner for 3.
The appetizers, the vegetables samosa was good, not too heavy or oily or sickly.
The pappadam which was served with homemade mint sauce was crispy and deliciously yummy.
The chicken tikka – relatively large serve was tender and succulent.
For the mains, we opt for each of the curry – seafood curry, succulent fish pieces in creamy curry sauce. I think a hint of chili would be nice but it was good.
The chicken curry which I thoroughly enjoyed.
And lamb curry didn’t have that lamb-y taste was surprisingly delightful.
All eaten with fluffy roti was excellent.
Servings were definitely generous, and it was good – better than I had anticipated. Unfortunately, we didn’t finish it all and N took it home for lunch the next day. They do have a la carte, different types of curries, vegetables, satay stick (which I thought was odd) but overall it was good – didn’t feel sick or bloated, I find some Indian cuisine can make me feel extremely bloated.
If I wanted an Indian fix, I know where to go and it is quite reasonable, price wise.
The company of course was excellent, it’s always lovely to catch up with both N and Z.
