The New Sangeet
I came here on a first date, which was incredible (I'm still dating the guy!) so I'm a but biased, but if the best way to one's heart is through one's stomach, then this place explains it!
When we arrived, I actually thought they were closed, as there was almost no one there and the lights were dimmed. A very warm waiter (manager? Not sure) greeted us, and lit the candle on our table and those next to us to set the atmosphere.
We ordered our food- samosas, chicken korma, lamb, tandoori chicken, and of course garlic, buttery naan bread, with lassis (sweet and mango) to start off with. The food was heavenly - spiced and spicy, bursting with authentic Indian flavours, NOT 'watered down' for the HK palate. Perfect!! About halfway through our meal, a live trio band began to play - the drums, vocal, and string sounds transported me to the Subcontinent...primal, soulful, and rich.
I have since then gone back about 5 times, and can honestly say that this is my favourite restaurant in Hong Kong.
I went to The New Sangeet with my family the other night and was thoroughly impressed! Not many people when we first arrived, but I know that Indians typically eat on the late side (it was full of Indian customers by the time we left, a very good sign!) We decided on the set menu for 5, and loved every bite! They were flexible with some of the dishes, and upgraded our naan for us. Lassi is included, as well as rice, appetizers, 4-5 dishes, and the naan. Very good value, and wonderful service! They are proud of their food (and for good reason!) and it shows.
