Indian street food-inspired Chaat opens its doors at the Rosewood Hong Kong

Pav Bhaji, Chicken Tikka, Lamb Seekh Kebab… These are just a few of the mouth-watering, quintessentially Indian fare that can be had at the latest eatery to open in Rosewood Hong Kong – Chaat. 

Chaat interiors

Ably helmed by Chef de Cuisine Manav Tuli – an 18-year industry veteran whose career spans from India to London, and who latterly reopened Tamarind, one of London’s first Michelin-starred Indian restaurants – Chaat promises to bring the vibrant spices and heady flavours of much-loved Indian street foods directly to the table, albeit with an upscale twist and a dramatic flair.

The menu here features a variety of small plates such as Raj Kachori to whet guests’ appetites, before delving into hearty mains such as Palak Paneer  (slow-cooked buttery spinach with paneer) and Lamb Dum Biryani. A key draw at Chaat is its amalgam of Tandoor-inspired dishes. For the uninitiated, a Tandoor is a traditional Indian oven utilised in the cooking of various kebabs and tikkas without the need for any oil. It’s a method that imparts a unique smoky flavour to every morsel, and that’s exactly what you get in dishes such as Lobster Tikka and Black Pepper Chicken Tikka.

If that weren’t enough Chaat’s bag of tricks also includes an extensive beverage programme that encompasses not only Indian spirits and refreshing cocktails but also a vast selection of Portuguese and Indian wines. Add to that a dramatically upholstered interior and sweeping views across Victoria Harbour, and this may just be your next favourite eatery.
