Looking for a new food hangout that will make you smile? Kailash Parbat in TST creates amazingly tasty Indian street food that you're bound to fall in love with
You know that we love to try cuisine from all over the globe, including Mexican restaurants, French fine dining and the best dim sum in Hong Kong (of course!) So when Kailash Parbat asked us to come and sample their GIGANTIC Indian street food menu, we just couldn’t say no.
Why you’re going to love Kailash Parbat
The story of this restaurant goes back to the 1940s, when the Mulchandani brothers began their culinary journey on the streets of Mumbai. Fast-forward to present day, and this global chain is still a family business with branches in Canada, Australia, Singapore, USA, India and now Hong Kong.
Inside the restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui, the interior is bright and modern, the perfect surroundings for the colourful and indulgent feast that was to come.
What should I eat?
In short, everything we tried was bang on, largely because every single thing is handmade in the kitchen onsite.
We started with the famed fennel lassi, so delicious and the perfect accompaniment to every dish, including our starters, pani puri, sev puri and Bombay vada pav. The Pani Puri with spiced mashed potato and sprouted lentils was exceptionally fresh and served with a wonderful herbed minty water and tamarind sauce, while the Sev Puri featured delicious flat fried pooris with onion and oh-so-many sauces, including chili chutney, garlic relish and sweet and sour sauces – delicious.
Surprisingly, the Bombay Vada Pav, a kind of Indian burger, was one of our favourites. Don’t be fooled by the plain white bun that the potato patty is sandwiched between, with the addition of chutneys and chilis, we were in absolute heaven; street food at its absolute best.
Already full but pushing through, we continued on to mains that again blew our minds. From the fragrant and warm Chole Baturas that blended chick pea masala, to the wonderful Paneer Lababdar – clay oven cooked cottage cheese in chatpata tomato masala – you could taste that at Kailash Parbat, they craft food with love.
The restaurant also caters to local tastebuds by crafting some wonderful dishes with a basis in Chinese cuisine. We were particularly fond of the Schezwan Hakka Noodles that saw crispy noodles tossed with Sichuan sauce and served up in a very Instagrammable bike – too cute!
For dessert we tried two deliciously decadent offerings. The Falooda Kulfi is like a very sweet Indian ice cream sundae float, and I couldn’t stop eating it despite being totally full. The malai kulfi is topped with rabdi, falooda sev and rose syrup, and when all mixed together, it creates a party in your mouth that you won’t want to leave.
And as a huge gulab jamun fan, I couldn’t pass up the chance to try the Jamun e Jannat, gulab jamun served on a base of condensed milk with dried fruits. SO GOOD!
Kailash Parbat is the perfect pit-stop for vegetarians, vegans and meat-eaters alike, as all the food is just so delicious. We can’t wait to go back, but next time we’ll wear stretchier pants.
