Chana Masala Indian Restaurant, Hin Kong

We ordered a few times food at Chana Masala.

We ate the Dahl Palak (lentils spinach), the Chana Masala (chickpeas Indian spices), the Veg Kofta (vegetable balls with cashew nuts sauce), the Aloo Tikka (potatoes Indian spices), the Aloo Jeera (potatoes turmeric), and the Garlic Naan.

We absolutely loved the Chana Masala which was perfectly cooked, a bit spicy, and super tasty. We ate twice the Dahl Palak. The first time it was amazingly good and spicy but the second time it wasn’t spicy and too salty, too bad.

We both prefer the Aloo Jeera than the Aloo Tikka (Aloo Tikka = dry). Concerning the Veg Kofta, we both didn’t like the sauce which was too sweet for us, but the vegetable balls were really good. 

We both don’t like their naan, the texture is really chewing. They look more like a pancake/crepe than a bread.

🛵 Free Delivering.

Adrian loves their beef burgers. They are served with fries and a small salad. The French fries are handmade and perfectly cooked. They have a brie burger which is AMAZING 😋

I tried the vegetarian burger and the falafel wrap. I find that the patty and the falafels taste only like potatoes, the spices are definitely missing. I also ate the fish of the day with a basil sauce, fries, ratatouille, and salad. This meal was a real TREAT!
