Hong Kong is home to many Indian restaurants, but genuine Mughali restaurants are quite a lot harder to find. Rang Mahal on Queen’s Road in Central Hong Kong is one such rare beast. Serving traditional Mughali dishes in comfortable, retro surrounding with a cordial, helpful and knowledgeable service team that its reputation is built on, Rang Mahal has plenty to offer to even Hong Kong’s most jaded curry-fans.
Good prices for quality of food offered. Cozy environment and well sign posted. Lots of options and suited for many dietry requirements e.g. vegan and vegetarian
The difference between general Indian food and Mughlai cuisine is fairly subtle. The Mughal Empire was strongly influenced by Central Asia, and the food typically draws on Persian favourites so expect rather more kofta and kebabs that you would get at a standard curry place at Rang Mahal on Queen’s Road in Central Hong Kong. With dishes created specifically for the Maharajas, Nawabs and the elite of India’s north, at Rang Mahal you’ll find exotic dishes unique to the Mughlai cannon.
Rang Mahal on Queen’s Road in Central Hong Kong has plenty to offer in terms of a la carte options for the city’s curry-heads. However, if you’re in the mood to try something new, the bumper buffet lunch served every day between 11:30am-3pm is a great place to start. The buffet lunch includes 20 dishes to choose from and is a great starting point for diners new to Mughlai cuisine. Alternatively, Rang Mahal has a generous delivery service for those days when cooking is simply too much effort. But your best bet is to head to the restaurant in person and see what it’s all about in person.
