Located near Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station Exit P1 at Wing On Plaza, Woodlands is one of the oldest authentic Indian vegetarian restaurants in the city operating since 1981. This classic eatery has been a favourite among the vegetarian community in Hong Kong, with third-generation patrons still dining there until today. The restaurant offers an extensive range of Indian cuisines – from variations of dosa (rice pancake, originating from South India) specials to a host of uttappam and thali set meals that come with an assortment of sauces to brighten the palate. Woodlands' chefs all hail from North and South India and have been working in the eatery for almost three decades providing utmost consistency with the menu.
Hong Kong offers an excellent range of cuisines with diverse cultural influences.
