The claim to offer the best curry in town is a big claim for a gastronomic paradise like Hong Kong, but Haveli Authentic Indian does a great job in living up to the boast, with a menu that reads like an encyclopedia of South Asian cookery served up in premises that are as brilliantly atmospheric as they are brilliantly close to Tin Hau MTR. Find Haveli along Tsing Fung Street, close to the corner with King’s Road, and indulge in Indian cuisine fit for royalty.
Haveli Authentic Indian’s menu is as colourful as Bollywood, and just as productive, pumping out a la carte dishes that take in cuisines from across the length and breadth of the Indian subcontinent. There’s also a dazzling array of special deals and set meals that keep locals near Tin Hau and Causeway Bay familiar faces, and Hong Kong foodies in search of the best South Asian food making their way to the restaurant’s Tsing Fung premises on a daily basis.
One of the best ways to dive into Haveli Authentic Indian’s incredibly extensive selection is to opt for one of their buffet deals: the Royal Luncheon Buffet is an affordable way to stuff your face with all you can eat and drink on an Indian tip: curries, naan breads saturated with garlic and plenty of chilled mango lassis to keep your head from exploding with spice embolisms. Alternatively, go for the more choosy yet still five-course Haveli set lunch special, choosing from vegetarian, chicken, lamb or biryani for your main course, plus soup, salad, appetiser of the day, and rice or naan. The best way to get to Hong Kong’s Haveli is to make your way to Tin Hau and then the Tsing Fung Street flyover.
