“Cool Place in a Hot Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I was recommended by an ex-pat who has lived in Bangkok for the last 15 years. On entering the well decorated but smallish restaurant, I had to ask if they were open, as it was completely void of life at 12:45 PM on Valentine's Day.

After a moment a man and woman emerged from the kitchen and proceeded to wait on me hand and foot. A wet face cloth to remove Bangkok's deposits on my skin, a cool glass of water to bring the temperature down.

The waiter, a very patient man, described each dish and then recommended alternates to suit my tastes. Bonus: go in when no one is there and you get an oral history and background on the dishes, the country of origin and which dishes are appropriate with others.

I spent one of the most interesting dining experiences that I can remember, thanks to a waiter who is also versed in several languages (Tibetan, Indian, Thai, English) and is generous with his local knowledge.

There are 4 locations in the greater Bangkok area, however, this one is located on Sukhumvit, between Soi 3 and 5.

Go there hungry!

“Great Indian Meal Nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Visited on recommendation of hotel concierge. Was not disappointed. Food was tasty without being too spicy.The manager was delightful and very helpful in making suggestions. We had soup three curry dishes beautiful Saffron rice pompodoms and onion nan bread which was delicious and and two beers. Although portions were not huge they were big enough for us. Have visited twice and will return on our next trip. Total bill was £33.

“Still the best Indian restaurant in Bangkok.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I've been coming here for more than 15 years and still come back each time in Bangkok . Chicken Tikka is unrivaled here and so are the rest of the dishes right to the masala chai.
