This is a good value Indian restaurant. First time we have tried it and were pleasantly surprised to enjoy very good masala dosa and samosa

Visited this place first time in 2010. Lot has changed since then, with things at steady decline. Things changed a bit with a management change - but now it seems to have gotten an attitude of money churning machine with no customer service concept. Have...told myself several time that I will never go back, but ended up visiting again. The hallmark was one of the staff putting my bag up on the chair on which the kid was sitting and got off for a moment and then came “Are you done?”, followed by the bill on the table and “can you pay now” to which my wife replied with “let me finish first”. If you need to turn tables fast enough so that you are practically pushing your customers out, might not seem like that now, but the time of decline shall come soon!More

There are a fair number of veg and non veg Indian restaurants around TST and TST East. We really like Woodlands at the Wing On Plaza on Mody Road. Opening around 11.30-3pm (lunch) and 6.30-11.30pm (dinner), they have a fair sized indoor seating area and...do take-away and delivery in the area as well. A lot of good vegetarian and jain friendly dishes at Woodlands. We really like their thali sets. You can choose from southern, northern or Woodlands Special thali served with rice and your choice of poori or chapathi. Sets are generous portion size, two thali for three people is enough. In short, all bowls taste natural and good. For two people we also like to add an order of samosa or vava pao. Starters are nicely prepared and flavourful as well. Service is polite, timely and they are helpful if you have questions about the dishes. Note, Woodlands is a vegetarian only place with a focus on Southern Indian dishes, perhaps best known for their their dosa. They have a sister restaurant called Hello India on Hankow Road in TST that offers veg and non-veg and focuses more on Northern Indian. That is a pretty good traditional curry house as well.More

The food: Ordered masala dosa, idli and rava masala dosa. They come with sambar (lentil curry), a red chutney and the white coconut chutney. The taste: The wrap/crepe part of the dosas was OK. The masala was a bit below average. The sambar was not...good. Both chutneys were terrible. The service: Fast enough to beat fast-food places. The manager was condescending but staff was polite, efficient. The hygiene: Sofas, chairs and plates, glasses were clean. The floor was disgustingly sticky.More

Stopped by The Woodlands recently for another round of tasty vegan-friendly Indian and was very happy with my lunch. This is one of the longest standing Indian restaurants in the city and a very good option for those looking for vegetarian, vegan, Jain dishes. They...are separate lunch and dinner opening times, you can reserve a table, walk-in, do take-away or delivery if preferred. On this occasion, I had samosa which are so good at Woodlands. The filling is thick, creamy with a nice level of spice. I also had the Paneer Makhani, a nice curry that was slightly sweet and tomato based savoury. The cottage cheese with slightly thick, just chewy enough, took on the makhani flavours very well. I also tried their Lemon Rice which was expectedly citrusy in flavour. This was an interesting alternative to more conventional rice and biryani orders. Finished my lunch with a nice cup of Madras style filter coffee which tasted just fine. Overall, this was a hearty and expectedly good lunch. Look forward to my next meal at The Woodlands.More

First time at this restaurant and eating such cusine. The staff was incredibly attentive and friendly; and the restaurant, although small didn't feel too overcrowded. It was busy, and for good reason - the food is delicious and you could taste the calmness and care...in the food preparation. I ordered the lentil donut (comes with two donuts and three dipping sauces that are substantial enough so you're not running out); mushroom soup that was nothing like anything I'd tasted - the spices were incredible and it was very filling; I'd also ordered the Ghee plain dosa which was the perfect consistency for me (not too thin like the paper dosa, which my husband ordered). The Dosa comes with the same dipping sauce, which in themselves are amazing. Next time I would stick with just one order of dosa or of the donut not both (the portions are substantial but not so big that a single person cant enjoy it on their own). Overall the experience was a dance party for my tastebuds and more. If you are looking for food that pleases the mind and soul as much as your stomach then I highly recommend you try the food here.More

The space is not large, but light and pleasant ... and superb, polite and pleasant service. I didn't see any set lunch per se, but the thali choices serve that purpose. We also had an extra plate of chili paneer -- wow that was good...and I wanted to lick the plate afterwords. I chose the puri option and was glad for that, as they were light and fresh, almost like an Indian croissant. Two dosa sizes are available, and the server gently pointed out the one we chose at first was "the big one" and probably too big for one person. She was quite right about that! Together with a sweet lassi, all this made for a very satisfying though not cheap lunch. As often happens in HK, the main course for lunch looks reasonably priced but the drinks are extra and add up, at HK$30+ each. Would I go back? Absolutely. The chili paneer on its own would have been enough for me -- and a lot cheaper at the end. We finished the meal happy and satisfied.More
