Eating out: * Michelin Indian Cuisine, Golden Peacock
Where to get the best Indian food in Macau? Look no further – Golden Peacock in Venetian is a one Michelin starred restaurant with all the regional Indian dishes cooked to perfection. Service is fantastic, I’ve gone with friends with egg, gluten, diary allergies and our server actually knew every single ingredient that went into the dishes and made recommendations based on dietary requirements.
Impressive considering how extensive Indian cuisine is and plenty of spices and ingredients that go into making them.Didn’t get too many photos because there restaurant is dark and too many shadows.
I can however recommend what to order:
Butter chicken a must, all the vegetarian dishes are great – we love the palek paneer cheese and spinach and another one with peas too and the okra dish which looks like the Indian equivalent of a ratatouille. Lamb briyani and the tandoori grill chicken on skewers (photo above).
Lots of Indian restaurants serve freshly made naan, roti and prata, but here they also have Kulcha, a specialty from Amritsar, West India by the Pakistan border. I have been and can attest to the kulcha here.
Exactly like the original – well with the army of fantastic Indian chefs in the kitchen you can hardly go wrong!
With plenty of food to go around, we usually order 3-4 dishes and a basket of mixed roti, naan, prata and kulcha, our bill comes up to about 200-250MOP each and we always have leftovers, so order without greed and your bill should come up to less.
With wine, you’d probably add another 100MOP each to your list. We usually bring our own white, corkage is 400MOP, but as the husband is so picky about what he is drinking, he prefers to bring his own. A Dr Loosen white is about 400MOP, so for the cost of corkage, you get to to drink your own nice bottle.
I’ve also tried the buffet here and it is pretty good – great options and currently there is a promotion on buffets at The Venetian so have a look.
If you’re like me and always lost in the casino maze, head towards the Cotai arena direction (follow the signs), you should pass the Irish pub and café deco and you’re on the right path to Golden Peacock.
