House of India, Bermuda $, Indian Cuisine
House of India is the only genuine Indian restaurant with Indian chefs in the island. Located at the northern edge of Hamilton city, about 10-minute walk from the town center, House of India is a small but busy restaurant. The dining room is decorated with Indian paintings and woodcarvings.
Ashok Uppal started the restaurant in 1995 along with his wife. Since then it has only continued to gain popularity and often termed as the best Indian restaurant in Bermuda.
The restaurant specializes in slow cooked and often spicy northern India cuisine. We have many favorites here. We would usually start with vegetable samosas (small deep-fried turnovers), or chicken tikka. There are wide varieties of vegetarian, beef, lamb and chicken items, prepared to whatever degree of spiciness you want.
They can customize the dishes for you and prepare it with low, medium or high spices as you desire.
One of our top favorite food at House of India Bermuda is the Tandoori Chicken - chicken simmered with yogurt and little Indian spices slowly roasted in tandoor (clay oven), tastes absolutely delicious. This probably is the least spicy food in this restaurant.
Other favorite dishes include the lamb maas (lamb simmered in an array of spices) and beef rogan josh (Indian curry with a variety of spices, yogurt and tomatoes).

If you like spicy food, you can try chicken chetinad. The nans (a flat doughy bread) is freshly made in tandoor. Another great dish that you can try here is the Byriani which is rice prepared with several different spices, meat (or vegetables) and served with yogurt raita. You can get chicken, beef, lamb, baby shrimps and veg Byrianis. Lassi (sweetened yogurt) served in a glass, particularly the one with mango flavor, are delicious and refreshing.
