First Review by JohnnySensible

Indian for a change - Edit

After several days of primarily Chinese Buddhist food, we took a break with something spicier.
The place is small, rundown and cozy.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Despite our love for Indian food we are not familiar with all of it and they were helpful trying to explain to us.
Food was good and well priced.

Would not recommend the tomato soup, but everything else was perfect.

Pros: location, vegan options, big selection

average food, but cheap and rather nice place - Edit

Lunch today. The plain dosa was good. Arguably better than at Saravana Bhavan or Sangeetha. But I was disappointed by the Thali, especially by the rice and the bread that were below average. So mixed feeling about the food. Price is lower than peers. I also quite like the room, typical of old small HK restaurants, sadly disappearing. I shall come back and try other South Indian dishes.

secret door to a slower pace - Edit

this restaurant is located on the first floor with access through a locked door. there is just a little sign next to the door outside. it took me a good 10 minutes to find with help! once inside you'll find an extensive menu to choose from. dinner sets are $79 hkd. simple atmosphere in a chilled environment. a mini harbour from the manic speed on the streets.

very good food - Edit

on our recent trip in July to HK, we had dinner at this place on two nights and let me say that the food quality exceeded our expectations.
We had Paneer butter masala, Dal makhani among others and both the preparations were too good.
One other plus is very fast and good service.

Pros: excellent food, good service

Cons: absence of tandoori items, cramped for space

Branto, Hong Kong - Edit

I've been here a couple of times now. It's a reasonably priced cheap and cheerful type place. I've had a vegan thali on both occasions and thoroughly enjoyed it. They also do a big choice of dosas and a large selection of Punjabi dishes.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Tasty food

Very good indian with fast service - Edit

Went there with an Indian friend. He said it was a very good Indian restaurant. I agree!
We took a masala dosa, a kind of long sheet rolled with some potato and herbs inside, and sev puri like a small snack/entrance a bit spicy.
Overal, seems clean, foods is really tasty, they have a set for around 75HKD. For one person cost = around 50-75HKD.
Totally recommend this place !
If you want vegan, you can ask the waiters for dishes with no cream or milk, still plenty of choice.

Pros: Really tasty, Wide variety of indian dishes, Quick service

Cons: Menu doesn't say if vegan or veggie

Great Indian Food - Edit

Cons: short opening times

Reliable Indian fare - Edit

The first time I discovered Branto, it was by chance, before I even knew about this website, and it was a fortunate discovery. It became my standby in Hong Kong.
I've always enjoyed my food there, although generally I choose their Dosa and Idly. I havent tried many of the Northern style curries there.
Everything I've tried there has been great, or at least good.
The place gets very busy which is generally a good sign in Hong Kong.

Pros: Food, Price

very good thali - Edit

Vegans, ask to the owner (not the waitress) what you can take. There are 3 thalis, the second is vegan, very good, big portion and cheap.

samden 10 Mar 2013 - At least today, the second Thali (Gujrati Thali) came as well whit curd. The two curries which where different to the Sout India Thali where a bit sweet. I could not find any other difference.

Will visit again! - Edit

It is not visually pretty, but don't let that stop you. I really love So. Indian for a change. It seems most places I visit are more No. Indian these days. So, I dropped in before dark and ate a wonderful dinner before racing down to the waterfront to see the "symphony of lights" on the Hong Kong harbourfront. Since I speak english only, the staff actually took some extra time to make sure I got what I wanted. They did their best to answer my questions. The place was super busy and everyone was still very polite to me. I found the food to be fresh and tasty.

Pros: fresh food, lots of choices, helpful staff

Cons: ambience lacking, busy busy

Good food with reasonable prices - Edit

Came here for dinner with a friend of mine. I've always loved Indian food and everything was very good. They should be pretty authentic too considering all the other customers appeared to be Indians. No English menu but they do have a folder of their dishes with pictures to help you with your selection. Would definitely come back again.

Pros: tasty, reasonably priced

Cons: could be too spicy
