Flavors at The Landmark – Indo Thai Restaurant, Kiti

($$) Kitiou 26, Kiti. Mon-Fri 17:00 to 23:00. Sat 12:30 to 23:30, Sun 12:30 to 23:00

It began many years ago as a typical Cypriot grill house – until a forward-thinking Indian businessman joined the team. At first, an additional page at the back of the grill-house menu offered a smattering of Indian dishes. Then the word spread that an ‘Indian restaurant’ had opened in Kiti. Such was the demand that The Landmark now has revamped itself as an Indo Thai restaurant offering a wide range of Asian dishes. The ambience and background music are now alluring Indian rather than Cypriot. With chefs from India and Thailand, the food is authentically Asian. And oh, one can still order traditional Cypriot dishes – even English-style fish and chips. But why not experiment with exotic dishes such as Dal Makhani, Thai Yellow Curry, Bombay Chaat, or Thai Seafood salad with lemongrass?

Lemongrass Pan-Asian Restaurant

Protaras Road, next to the Sunrise Beach Hotel. Mon-Sun 17:00 to 23:00

The outdoor terrace is relaxing, and the smell of Asian foods being prepared by chefs in the open show kitchen is intoxicating. The Lemongrass Pan-Asian Restaurant offers a smorgasbord of gastronomic delights, including dishes from Vietnam, Korea, the Philippines, China, Japan, and Thailand. How about starting with Philippines-style dumplings and following them with Korean beef curry? No? How about Kung Pao chicken then? Pad Thai or spicy salmon maki? The menu is so vast and varied that diners keep coming back for more.
