Ista- The Curry Place, Hong Kong

Ista is the curry place that I've been missing in Hong Kong, lately I have been having the most intense curry cravings (maybe it was all the delicious Indian food in Malaysia!) So when I researched for some highly recommended Indian restaurants, this was one of the top hits and I can see why.

Ista is situated in one of those odd warehouse/ industrial buildings in LKF, walking in the atmosphere is soothing, quiet but welcoming. We were kindly greeted by the manager and the staff and soon browsed for what to eat. The choices really caught our eye too, somehow Ista has that amazing balance of creating fusions of food that make you think you're dining at a Michelin restaurant but keeping to the authenic Indian flavour that everyone secretly loves.

As we debated on what to have, we were given great suggestions from the manager, he lovingly recommended dishes that were popular with his customers too. In the end we decided on quite a variety of choices. Firstly, we started with the crunchy poppadoms and chutneys. Then came the heart in eyes emoji kind of dish (also proving once again that pomegranates make any dish 100 times better), biting into the potatoes they were fluffy and aromatic, the flakes of gram flour noodles added to the amazing crunch.

For our mains, we settled on the fresh garlic naan bread and a Chicken Murgh (sadly I don't recall the name of this dish- I really need to start writing them down!) that was recommended by the manager, as he mentioned it was lightly spiced but the chicken was infused for many hours. The chicken was lovely and tender, with the spices adding the extra level of deliciousness, he even kindly gave us a complimentary bowl of rice to dip the rest of the sauce goodness in.

Although we were already fully stuffed from the feast of the meal, we got enabled to try one of Ista's desserts too and chose the rich Indian ice cream that was so creamy, it really was the icing on the cake of a great meal for us.

I noticed that Ista was also part of the Food Panda Group too, which means if you're a lucky enough person to work/ live in the delivery vicinity, you can order up some amazing food too- the what's for dinner question is sorted now! I would highly recommend Ista, amazing food and service, what else do you need really?
