Easy to find the restaurant along Charoen Krung Rd. Serving halal indian food at a reasonable price.
This restaurant looks local but it is, in fact, an amazing authentic Indian joint in Bangkok. It has been located on Bangkok's oldest road, Charoen Krung rd., for over 70 years. Everything I ordered was very flavourful, tasty and inexpensive. The staffs were friendly and...polite. They might not be able to speak English well, but there is English menu available. The restaurant is only 10-minute walk from BTS Saphan Taksin station and is opened daily from 6.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. "Special" mutton briyani is served only on Monday and Friday.More
Just really love this authentic Indian joint. Packed with flavour. No fuss. Fast and value for money. Top notch easy going one. Try the fish biryani. Awesome.
Easy to find location near intersection. Opens early but closes at 5pm. Mutton Biryani was satisfactory. Pricing is reasonable. Staff was very attentive and welcoming.
Wanted to try this place since it was featured on a Korean TV show. Everything we ordered was pretty good and cheap. The staff didn't speak English well but were all nice and had no problem ordering. Maybe we'll go again if we are in...the area.More
Admittedly, I am entirely unfamiliar with halal food and even less familiar with halal food in Thailand. I have, however, spent over 3 months in Thailand over 3 trips as well as extensive touring of Taipei and Tokyo and I can safely say this is...one of the worst meals I’ve had on all of my Asian travels. I am absolutely beside myself that these reviews are anything but mediocre. THIS IS NOT A 4-STAR RESTAURANT!!! It is not 4-stars for food, affordability, convenience, ambiance, nor experience. It doesn’t even register. I have had better food in Canadian food courts in rural Alberta. This might seem harsh, but this love-fest HAS TO STOP!!! The food was bland, it was tepid, you’re served tap water or something worse, and at the end, the old lady at the front tried to rip me off of my change like math is lost on a Westerner. This could be chalked up to an honest mistake, but honestly, I don’t feel it was. I had to call the bill back to show her that 500 BHT - 330 BHT does not equal 150 BHT and that I wanted the 20 BHT difference. If this was some kind of phenomenal meal like all these people claim it is, I would have let it slide. I hope someone can explain to me wtf is actually going on with these reviews. Do you all eat at Denny’s or worse for the majority of your meals? Have you actually TRIED a Thai curry or entree? Where did you develop your palates? I hate to be rude, but I feel like you all have duped me and likely many others. The food wasn’t affordable by Thai standards. It was bland and lacked any sense of body or depth. The fish curry felt diluted and without seasoning whatsoever. The byrani was dry and as unimpressive as the curry. I didn’t touch my iced latte as it was served with the same questionable ice as their boiled tap water, or at least that is what I assume it was. I HOPE it was at least boiled but it definitely didn’t come out of a purified system or a bottle. You can be optimistic and say the area is “awash with culture” but in reality, it is run down, old, and felt unsafe by most standards of touristed Bangkok. We were continually stopped by old men trying to direct us to shops they make commissions from or to provide us with bastardized directions for a place we didn’t even ask directions to. Don’t be fooled by the “luxury hotels” in the area. Skybar? Jesus, people. That hotel is a depressing dump and as run down as it’s surroundings. “But Jacob. Isn’t that where the Shangri La is located? How could it be bad?” I suspect this franchise might be the Shangri La’s first as there are so many cleaner and more modern hotels that cost far less. (See “Grand Centre Terminal 21”, for instance, or ANY hotel in and around the Asok station area). Why am I so negative? Because this city is FILLED with such amazing cuisine filled with flavours and bouquets of aromas that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else on this planet. Yet these reviews fooled me into thinking I was about to have a really adventurous and flavourful meal. It is a hole in the wall with little to offer but bland and tepid foods. If the best you can say is “it’s been here for 80 years”, perhaps you should have lunch at the Princess Hotel on Hastings Street on the Lower East Side of Vancouver. It is also awash with culture and I’m sure the grilled cheese and fries are some of the best in Canada...for a run down, flavourless dining experience in one of that city’s more unsavoury and dangerous areas. Can anyone back me up, here? This is one of the biggest disappointments in the history of my travels and that’s saying something given 8 months spent in Central and South America where even the beans and rice trump the flavour profiles of halal-Thai food. Do yourself a favour and eat a bowl of street pad thai if you want a cultural experience. This restaurant needs to be called out for what it is. A disappointing and deflating waste of a trip given the multitude of untouchable flavour profiles that can be found at the crappiest street vendor in Thailand. Sorry. But not sorry. Save yourselves.More
Popped by quickly for lunch and we were all satisfied. The mutton biryani was holy delicious especially. Beef satay was equally wonderful. Love this legendary.
We visited Muslim Restaurant during a food tour. This was actually a treat from our guide which wasn't originally on our scheduled places to stop. Of the three of us, I was the only non-meat eater which turned out to be awesome! I had my...very own roti with a lentil soup dish. Oh my goodness was it good. I had to share the roti because I wanted my family to taste just how perfectly cooked it was. The accompanying lentil dish was bursting with flavor. And I can't forget the okra. I am a southern girl, so I wasn't too fascinated with the okra when it was placed on our table. But after hearing my mom rave about it, I decided to try it. The okra turned out to be the best okra this southern girl has ever had!! When you arrive in Bangkok, you should definitely make this a place to go.More
Not a fancy place but very local. Thai style Halal food. Reasonably priced and friendly services. Not very far from Saphan Taksin train station.
Somewhat 20+ years back and this place, Muslim Restaurant, still keeps it authenticity. Class taste of curries. No over-sweetness. Every dishes are just authentic and classic. I just wish it will be here for many more years before modernisation takes over the place.
