I’ve been going to Joseph Bistro every week since discovering this Indian restaurant specialising in Goan cuisine. It’s a nice change from the richer and stronger flavoured North Indian fare.
In my opinion, owner-chef Joseph makes the BEST butter chicken curry - a symphony of flavours with the tanginess of tomatoes, mintiness of fennel seeds, fragrance of green cardamon and other freshly ground spices in a light gravy. This is one dish I never order at other Indian restaurants as it’s always too heavy. Love the chicken tikka, mixed lentil curry, fish jaw curry, mushroom-nut-cheese-fig starter and fig kulfi too.
Joseph has worked in 5-star hotels (Four Seasons etc) in Dubai, Maldives and Garden Hotel in Taipei before setting up his own restaurant last November. He has an excellent palate and his freshly ground masalas are amazing! Here is where you can taste kokum (from the mangosteen family) which is often used in Goan cuisine.
This is very high quality and exquisite Indian food in a bistro setting. They serve Thai rice though and basmati rice is used in the chicken biryani (advance order required). Plain nann available only. Those who like tasty Indian food without the risk of heart burn/indigestion would love Joseph Bistro.
