Gaylord, Hong Kong’s most distinguished Indian dining establishment honours a momentous milestone, celebrating its 50th anniversary. With a newly renovated space located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Gaylord’s limited-edition tasting menu showcases a variety of authentic yet elevated Indian classics, put together by India’s favourite Master Chef.
Five decades in the industry
Gaylord Indian Restaurant has been an iconic establishment for over five decades. Founded in 1972 by Mr O.P. Seth, it quickly gained popularity for serving authentic and traditional Indian cuisine. It has since become a staple of the local and international dining scene and has been recognized by the Michelin Guide.
One of the reasons behind Gaylord’s success has been its innovative approach to Indian cuisine. In the 1980s, the restaurant introduced a buffet lunch that allowed Chinese diners to appreciate the rich flavours of Indian cuisine breaking the misconception that it is always overly spicy. Gaylord was also the first restaurant to build an open kitchen and host live music featuring Indian performers, creating a unique and immersive dining experience.
Today, Gaylord continues to offer a wide variety of mouth-watering Indian delicacies, including tandoori chicken, succulent prawns in coriander and cream sauce, and tender lamb cooked with cashew nut and poppy seed paste. Its exotic interiors and elegant ambiance make it the perfect place for a real Indian experience in Hong Kong.
To celebrate 50 years of success, Gaylord invites you for an exclusive eight-course menu created by world-renowned celebrity chef, Sanjeev Kapoor. Gaylord’s tasting menu is priced at HK$358 per person for the vegetarian tasting menu and HK$448 per person for the non-vegetarian one, with a wine pairing option for an additional HK$188. Guests can expect to indulge in a wide variety of Gaylord’s signature dishes along with Chef Kapoor’s elevated regional delicacies, each carefully crafted with the freshest ingredients and spices to ensure an unforgettable dining experience. Besides Gaylord’s 1972-classic Vegetable Samosa, guests can enjoy traditional dishes such as Chili Pineapple Sambal & Poppadum, Goan-style Prawn, and Chef Kapoor’s signature dish Shaam Savera. The aromatic flavours and exquisite presentation of each dish will leave you craving more.
