Petunia Raj left India for Hong Kong in 1987 and now teaches English in a local secondary school. Although an excellent cook, she still enjoys a night out with her friends in the following Indian restaurants. Viceroy Restaurant, 2/F, Sun Hung Kai Centre, 30 Harbour Road, Wan Chai, tel: 2827 7777. 'This restaurant has a beautiful view of the harbour. It serves a good buffet lunch - the price is reasonable and they have friendly service. You feel comfortable and relaxed eating there.' Woodlands, Mirror Tower, 61 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, tel: 2369 3718. 'They serve authentic south Indian vegetarian food (above). I go quite often with my friends. I like the dosas (a crisp, filled pancake) and the set menu.' Gaylord Indian Restaurant, 1/F, Ashley Centre, 23 Ashley Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2376 1001. 'I usually have naan bread and tandoori chicken in this restaurant. It is difficult to make naan bread at home without a good oven, so it's something I always order when I visit an Indian restaurant.' Koh-i-Noor Indian Restaurant, 1/F, Peninsula Mansion, 16 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2369 0783. 'I also like the naan bread there and the prices are reasonable. Actually, I am not an adventurous person, so when I dine in an Indian restaurant I mainly order food that can't be made easily at home.' Ashoka Restaurant, 57 Wyndham Street, Central, tel: 2524 9623. 'The set meal there is good. I like the raita, an Indian salad, and the kulfi, an Indian ice-cream. The food is fairly priced as well.'
