The number of Indian restaurants in Wan Chai has just increased by one! The newest addition being UTSAV, which has opened up on Amoy Street between Johnston Road and Queen’s Road East (see full address and contact details above). Amoy street in Wan Chai is already stuffed with good restaurants – but we’re not complaining.
Utsav has a wide variety of Indian dishes (see menu below) with a very ‘home-cooked’ feel to it. The restaurant’s ambience is very modest – attracting the Wan Chai lunch crowd.
The set lunch is a go-to option with lamb, chicken, fish or vegetable curry variations. It comes with a chapati/roti, rice, salad and the day’s special vegetarian dish. The lamb set being a favourite – with tender pieces of lamb – not bad for a lunch!
The Indian Chinese dishes are a must try, specially the Chilli Chicken and MoMo’s (Nepalese dumplings with pork/chicken or vegetable).
Chilli Chicken (spice level 3.5/5)
Chicken MoMo’s (MoMo’s spice level 2/5. Sauce spice level 4/5)
Vegetarian Noodles/Chow Mein (spice level 2/5)
If you’re a fan of Indian snack/street food, you should definitely try Utsav when you’re in Wan Chai. The Pav Bhaji (potato curry with Indian style buns) uses burger buns instead of the usual pav’s, but the bhaji more than makes up for it. Check out the menu above for more appetizers/snacks.

Utsav does good Biryani! The portion size is good for 2 to share along with a snack/appetizer. The Lamb Biryani is highly recommended!
Lamb Biryani (spice level 3.5/5). The lamb pieces are in there – trust us!
Utsav is run by a family originally from Delhi- the food capital (and also the proper capital) of India. This sort of guarantees that you can’t go wrong with the taste! It’s good value for money and great for people working in and around Wan Chai for a quick and inexpensive meal – be it lunch or dinner.
We went to the restaurant three times, and each time the food was better than the last time.
