Our first time in Indian by Nature. Recently moved in to the area and seeking good food. This place ticked the box. Great food and great service. The manager was walking around ensuring everyone was being served and looked after. The food was outstanding, really well balanced dishes!!! A must to go to!!!

For indians traveling to thailand, this is the place to remind you of your roots. The food is quite nice and spicy. Their paneer dishes would be among my top recommendations and based on the taste, it does appear freshly cooked. Manager is quite friendly, albeit a bit too talkative and the staff is quite helpful explaining to non-indian folk... More

We visited Indian By Nature recently a few days ago as a large group, we are all lovers of Indian Cuisine. The restaurant is well laid out and inviting, it wasn't too busy given that it was a Friday evening in a busy resort town. The staff were friendly but there seemed to be a lack of urgency, one of...

We ate at this restaurant on January 23, 2015. We both found the food to be very bland. The meat that was used in the dishes was as dry as beef jerky. The maître d' would not listen to the order we were trying to make and kept recommending other dishes. I can't imagine that his recommendations would have been... More

After reading reviews here on tripadvisor we were expecting something really nice. We dressed up for the occasion, hoping to have a cocktail upstairs first. What a disappointment. Upstairs was awful - 'Kandy' a dark dismal music bar, certainly not a cocktail lounge. We didn't stay for a drink, it seemed totally separate to the restaurant and we went back... More

Dear BevHowarth, You are correct in saying that Kandy is 'totally separate to the restaurant'. Kandy is it's own entity. Yes, it is a part of the Jack and Dave/IBN building, being situated on the second floor of the said building. It is managed by three partners and Indian By Nature has no authority in it's management. Nonetheless, I have... More

The highlight of our vacation is a revisit to this wonderful Indian restaurant. Fantastic food and service delivered by excellent staff all under the careful watchful eye of Satish the General Manager. He is outstanding and ensures the absolute best of service.

High standard, high quality food and polite service. As a fan of indian food, I would recommend this restaurant. The food was excellent. Only minus was that the waitresses didn't speak much english, some of them a bit green, but we managed and the overall impression was great.

Dear PaulaKpz, Thank you so much for appreciating our efforts in maintaining good quality of food and service. The biggest challenge of any restaurateur is the hiring and keeping of his/her floor staff, especially here in Thailand. Many do not speak English. Those who do have a command of the English language take up office jobs and will not wait... More
