Gaylord: the oldest Indian restaurant in Hong Kong

January 12th 2017

By Delphine
The real one, the most authentic, the most typical. Recommended by Michelin Guide, this one is the oldest Indian restaurant in Hong Kong (this year it will celebrate its 45th anniversary, unbelievable in Hong Kong!). No surprise the dishes and atmosphere feel and smell 200% Indian. Tablecloths, plates, chairs, lamps, everything is so traditional.  
At lunch time, the buffet offers a wide selection of curries, masala, tandooris, vegetarian and not vegetarian recipes, salads, samosas, desserts. It changes every day.
A la carte, here is a tip: don’t forget the words “less spicy” or your palate might be on fire a bit faster than expected. Usually the chef knows that and perfectly adapts the recipes for us, the western ones. My neighbors are all Indian or Pakistanis and don’t seem to have the same level of tolerance vs. peppers and spices. Once this is said and agreed, it is just really good. Nothing else to add. Just very good.
Flavors, perfumes…you travel to Delhi just by smelling and tasting.
Order and share several small portions, this is the best way to enjoy the place. Prices are very reasonable, you can please yourself and don’t feel guilty.
Ready for a curry tonight?
