I’ve visited Stockholm almost more often than India, since it is so near-by – just behind one sea. And when in Stockholm, I often wish to eat in an Indian restaurant. But good Indian restaurants are hard to find and access outside India. Still, years of hard work and searching have paid their prize and I’m finally able to tell, not only one, but two good Indian restaurants from Stockholm.
First comes a restaurant named East India, almost in the center of Stockholm –
Restaurant EAST INDIA, Stockholm
All their dishes were served beautifully decorated, which of course shows in the prize list as well, but after tasting their Palak Paneer and Naan bread, one didn’t mind paying, since the experience was almost a five star taste wise.
Bhindi Masala and Shahi Paneer were also looking nice, tasting average well.
Would I go to Stockholm and restaurant East India again? Yes, and preferably to the terrace on a warm and sunny day.
Another good Indian restaurant in Stockholm is Holy Cow. It was number one in Tripadvisor’s Indian restaurants in Stockholm last year, so I thought, lets give it a try. By now, autumn 2018, it has dropped till 4th best Indian restaurant in Stockholm, according to Tripadvisor.
Restaurant HOLY COW SÖDER, Stockholm
Holy Cow Söder was difficult to reach, since it was located in Ringvaegen, which was not in the centre of Stockholm, but required a long walk from the centre instead.
Tourist, of course, does not mind, since one gets to see the city.
The interior of restaurant Holy Cow Söder was modest but clean. Summer heat was beaten by open windows to the terrace, which also allowed the cigarette smoke come inside the restaurant from the terrace. Vegetarian lunch in the restaurant was tasting average well.
Would I go to Stockholm and restaurant Holy Cow Söder again? Yes, for a lunch, but only if I’m nearby.
