Behind the big beautiful doors you will find some beautiful interior finishes & a semi open kitchen, actually it's all rather wonderful. Unfortunately that's as good as it gets. We took a chance on this place based on the favourable reviews. Wish we hadn't.

There are very few highly ranked Indian restaurants on TA, & only one other ranked as highly as this one. This place on the whole, seems tired & unloved, even dirty. Promoted as fine dining Indian, we didn't see it. The food? Our tandoori chicken was dry & over cooked - possibly reheated? They are certainly gay friendly, but we... More

Very authentic Indian food! Very nicely served, carefully and attentively. Spice level was exactly as per requirement. Also very neatly located on the main road. Nothing noisy or crowded, nor over the top. Very peaceful and nicely arranged. The art work inside is really beautiful and tastefully picked. Only small improvements would be in order. When a visitor is really... More

If you're looking for a special place to eat this is it. Lovely restaurant lovely decor and ambience however we happened to wander in still in shorts and felt a bit underdressed as other diners had dressed for the occasion. We were treated very well by the staff which made us feel welcome. The service was excellent and the food... More

Great meal (we each orderd the set menu, my husband the meat one and I the vegetarian, both were excellent and much too much for us to eat alone!), wonderful service (attentive but not in your face), delish wine (good prices and great taste, rare in Pattaya), peaceful atmosphere (clean, quiet, mellow, perfect).

Could not fault this place if I tried. This is the best Indian food I have ever eaten and I love my Indian food. The service was also fantastic, the best service I have received in Thailand, if not the world. Would highly recommend to anybody. A fantastic restaurant and would love to see one open up in Australia.

We too wish that we could replicate Indian By Nature in some major cities of the world. More people could then enjoy our take on fine Indian cuisine.
