About Basmati

Taking its name from the ancient Northern Indian and Pakistani grain that has been cultivated in the Indian subcontinent for centuries, Basmati offers up an authentic taste of India right in the heart of Hong Kong’s bustling Sheung Wan district. With dishes showcasing Indian cuisine that is unafraid to incorporate some modern flourishes to complement palates of modern customers, Basmati’s San Toi building premises, along Connaught Road Central, is often packed with diners. That said, Basmati has several meeting rooms and event spaces to accommodate private parties.

More about Basmati, Hong Kong

Basmati is a great place in Hong Kong’s busy Sheung Wan district to take in the taste of fine Indian cuisine. After all, this restaurant in the San Toi building down Connaught Road Central is named after the foundation of any good Indian and Pakistani meal – the fragrant basmati rice. This ancient staple grain is perhaps matched only by delicious tandoori-cooked naan breads, perfect as a starter or for mopping up that last little bit of warming curry. Perhaps the best way to experience basmati at Basmati, is to try one of their biryani dishes – a spiced all-in-one rice dish with fish, lamb, chicken, vegetables or mushrooms. The paneer biryani, with Indian cottage cheese, come highly recommended.

We should note that Basmati does an interesting line in fusion cuisine, too. Besides classics and contemporary reinventions of Indian and Pakistani dishes, Hong Kong diners will be pleased with Basmati’s range of Indo-Chinese and Nepalese cuisines. Try the Nepalese-style won tons known as momo, for instance, or the Manchurian vegetables. It’s all a sign that Basmati, down Connaught Road Central, knows about the history of culinary exchange between Indian cuisine and the traditions of Far East. Basmati’s popularity is such that they play perfect hosts to wedding and engagement parties at their premises in the San Toi building.
