When Jashan opened its doors in Hong Kong in 2006 it raised the benchmark against which Indian restaurants in the city were judged. The food at Jashan, in Central, is innovative, upmarket and was recently voted the best Indian restaurant in Hong Kong – an endorsement indeed. Renovated in 2011, the restaurant is a chic, modern temple to all the best in Indian food; here is the best food on Hollywood Road and beyond.
Jashan, part of the Uppal Hospitality Group (UHG), was the first Indian restaurant in Hong Kong to appear in the Michelin guide, and the restaurant has only grown in stature since then. The kitchen team are rightly proud of their contemporary Indian food and seek to surprise diners with their innovative takes on classic favourites. For starters we recommend sharing amritsari paneer pakoda (cottage cheese fritters) and aloo tikki chana chat (pan-fried potatoes with chickpeas) with your date to get into the swing of things. When it comes to main courses, you might be well advised to ask for some help from Jashan’s knowledgeable wait staff who are more than pleased to guide diners through this labyrinthine menu. If all else fails, opt for the house specialty – Bombay tawa chicken – you won’t be disappointed. If you somehow still have some room, we recommend trying the gulab jamum (fried dumplings in a sugar reduction and rose water) that are both delicious and beautiful.
There can be no doubt about the scale of ambition in the kitchen and dining room at Hollywood Road’s star restaurant. The kitchen staff at Jashan in Central Hong Kong consistently deliver food worthy of the Michelin guide, but there’s plenty of front-of-house touches that assure diners that Jashan’s world class talents are not restricted to the plate. The dining room is a sumptuously upholstered space, in vivid vermillion and gold, tastefully designed to foster intimacy between diners. Of course, first and foremost Jashan is the home of great food, all accolades aside. Unusually for a restaurant of such serious ambition, there are plenty of promotions and offers here too. Aside from the much admired delivery menu (seriously, you can get this delivered) there’s a lunch and Sunday buffet to allow diners to sample some of everything from Jashan’s celebrated menu. Jashan is open daily.
great place and probably the best indian cuisine outside of india
great place. i go there almost everytime i am in hong kong
1/ Table service from Shanti was quick and cheerful. You are lucky to have such dedicated staff. 2/ Do you have a new cook? More MSG was used to prepare the food this time than previously. I knew it from the thirst that started an hour or two after leaving. The recipes are already tasty. Please use less MSG. 3/ I think your buffet +dosa and bread is good value
Great food - always welcoming and attentive. We eat here almost every time we come to Hong Kong and we always start with the delicious spinach fritter!
The waitress struggled to understand our order and one dish was missed and wasn't delivered. Food that was delivered was very good. Waitresses and the Restaurant manager were pleasant and courteous. Restaurant manager checked in on us a couple of times during our meal. It seemed to take a long time for the food to arrive at the table and the restaurant wasn't busy at the time, may be this is just our expectation after eating in so many Chinese restaurants where the food comes out very quickly. Overall a pleasant experience and I would return.
Great indian taste in center of hong kong. Enjoyed indian food at affordable price.Very good indian food. Good hospitality. Nice staff. Good taste. Spices are mild as compared to Indian taste. Enjoy a good cuisine. Little bit costly.Live music at dinner time. Vegetarian and non vegetarian options. Thanks for the services.
Unfortunately they were out of lamb so we could not get the dish we really wanted and the only other options were chicken or fish. The food we had was delicious but strange to not have lamb when there are multiple lamb dishes on the menu
It was my first visit to this restaurant for a Sunday brunch Buffet. I personally liked the following. 1) Online reservation 2) Food 3) Quality of service 4) Reasonable price for a buffet in Hong Kong Thanks
A great evening out with my family. Friendly staff made the evening a good laugh. Service and food were OK but more than anything the restaurant has a good atmosphere and is in a great location. I would definitely return again with my kids.
Restaurant was busy on Thursday lunchtime but the attractive young lady who served our table was diligent and helpful throughout our stay, helping us to store our many bags and bringing drinks, coffee and bread to table as soon as we asked for them.
