A westerner, I went dinner with 2 others of Indian heritage. We were all gravely disappointed. Surly, disinterested and super slow service - on a quiet Monday night. Bland and cold food, I know it seems impossible given the menu descriptions and size of the restaurant. If your food is great, you can get away with poor service. If your... More

Unassuming place. Crowded and hot. But once the food arrives, all is forgiven. Possibly the best Daal I've ever had. The Palek Paneer is over the top delicious! This is my "Must Go" every time I'm in Kowloon from now on.

Tucked away behind an unmarked door, old stairwell hides a very basic Indian vegetarian restaurant. Don't be mislead, the food is lovely and comes out quickly. Fresh and tasty. Dosa is a favourite, Biryani is good, Gujrati Thali was nice.

If a restaurant has to bring diners the ambience of home then Branto does a perfect job. India may well have progressed but you while you make take the Indian out of India, you can't take India out of the Indian. Like most Indian lower to middle class homes, Branto is no Ritz. The inconspicuous door on Lock Street opens... More

I've been Branto's a few times and every time I have really enjoyed it. The menu contains a wide selection of very authentic cuisine and it reminds me of home cooked food (a massive compliment). I particularly like the talka dahl and the dosas are also excellent. Highly recommended for a great value Indian meal.

Branto is tucked away on the first floor of a building in TST but it worth hunting out. Don't expect 5 star surroundings, but if you like authentic , home cooked flavours this is somewhere you'll appreciate. The doshas were particularly good. Would definitely return and great value for money.

I have been here a couple of times for lunch and it is always super crowded, sometimes it take a few minutes before getting table. This restaurants offers a full range of vegetarian dishes both south and north indian, as well as street food. I would really recommend paneer burji and channa masala. The dosa is better made elsewhere so... More

The food was fabulous! The service was quick and responsive. I will definitely come back many times! The only down side I could find is the location. If I wasn't taken here by my wife who was taken by a friend, we never would have known about this little Indian jewel in Tsim Sha Tsui!

Having read many reviews of Branto, I was keen to have dinner there and it happened to be on the last day at Hong Kong. The restaurant is located pretty close to Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station and a person took us to the restaurant when we needed directions. The entrance to the restaurant was through a jail door, which...

After a fitting I asked for a restaurant recommendation -- Branto was their first suggestion -- and I must say, climbing the not-so-clean stairs to level one was not confidence building. I do not have a lot of knowledge about Indian food (too much chicken tikki masala in America) plus the server was shy and hesitant to make a recommendation... More
