Everest Club Reviews
Nov 10, 2005
This restaurant is one of the many Indian restaurants which are located in Chunking Mansion in Kowloon. An old apartment block, Chunking Mansion contains a number of cheap guesthouses (like Mirador Mansion just up the road) but also a number of Indian restaurants. You can't miss them, nor fail to find the door to the one you want, since any of the large collection of touts standing on the street outside will be more than happy to show you the way! We were so harrangued by the touts as soon as we showed any interest that we nearly had to walk away just to keep our sanity!
Having got over the experience of the touts, and turned a blind eye to the crumbling and rather dirty nature of the stairwells through which we were led in order to reach the restaurant, we suddenly stepped into a fully furnished and appointed Indian restaurant. It was though we had been magically transported from one world into another much more familiar one, since the decor was no different from any Indian restaurant we might have stumbled on back home.
The menu was varied, and the four of us ordered a variety of dishes, all of which turned out to be very good indeed. This was one of the best curries that I had had in a very long time.
And the bill was very reasonable as well; between the four of us we spent under US$40, which included a beer each. This really seemed a bargain to us.
