Coming from the UK.. love a curry.

Just had a take away from here very nice curry but for nice Indian to have fatty, stringy, brown meat chicken pakoras is embarrassing! Chef please get some white meat and sort it out ASAP
Would come back for the curry

While Aladdin is not big on ambience/seating, their food tastes so good , they should be at least in the conversation for a Michelin star
They definitely serve one of the more authentic-tasting Indian food in Hong Kong- CHICKEN JALFREZI is pretty good. FISH Pakora is a nice starter (crunchy batter with soft meat inside), but sometimes it may take a bit longer to come. The LAMB KEBAB is excellent, and so tempting as it comes in a sizzling hot plate.
DAL MAKHANI (or butter lentil) is rich and awesome... after eating it, you feel satisfyingly FULL for hours... maybe for rest of the day!

And their NAAN breads are so soft, it’s like eating a CLOUD! (Not sure if that made sense!). I totally LOVE the GARLIC NAAN and ONION KULCHA (which is also a kind of naan).

As said before, there is nothing much in terms of ambience and some might consider the seating/tables a bit cramped ... but who cares when chomping down on such tasty fare.

At these prices, this food is almost like a steal.

We found this restaurant through a TripAdvisor search and so glad we did. Brilliant Indian food.

Cozy restaurant with seating for about 30 people. We had takeaway and it was delicious.

Just wish I had found this earlier in our trip.

Delicious Indian food at reasonable rates served here. Near to time square. Cozy atmosphere, the waiter speaks hindi. You could get roti, nan, garlic naan etc with chicken, lamb as well as veg here. Biriyani is also served here. Max cost 40 to 80 HKD per head.

Was in Hong Kong for a few days and had a craving for some authentic Pakistani food. Found this place and was pleasantly surprised.

It’s a nice small place opposite Times Square. No glitz or glamour but decent food.

Would recommend it if you want a good meal.
