Hong Kong’s Tin Hau is filled with tong lau, the classic balconied buildings with apartments above and shopfronts below, touting dining rooms where cuisines from all over the world are served in generous, streetfood-stall portions. Palki Indian Restaurant is one such place, in the Fook Wah Mansion along Tsing Fung Street. It’s a locals’ favourite, with simple, authentic Indian dishes served promptly in a no-fuss dining space in this quaint corner of Hong Kong.
Hong Kong’s Palki Indian Restaurant has quite a local Tin Hau fan base, who head
to its premises on the ground floor of the Fook Wah Mansion along Tsing Fung
Street for the affordable Indian cuisine on offer. Palki’s tandoori chicken is highly
rated, always freshly cooked, and spiced to your liking. Doused in mint sauce, this is
a signature dish. Murgh madras with chicken and coconut is perfect for those who
like their curries creamy and complex, while the lamb knee curry is a
speciality, and mild enough for diners who can’t handle the heat. That said, Palki’s
classic Indian mango lassis tend to cure all ills associated with spicy dining!
Garlic naan rules the roost when it comes to Indian bread at Palki Indian Restaurant, whose premises can be found in a picturesque shophouse down Tsing Fung Street, in Hong Kong’s Tin Hau district. Fish tikka are another regular favourite, and diners love the fact that Palki Indian Restaurant goes easy on the ghee, making their curries much more similar to Indian cookery than most. Great value for money means that those who stumble across Palki tend to return, again and again.
