Our first meal in Thailand before we commenced digging into Thai and Italian cuisines. The spicy-gingery chilled buttermilk was effective in recuperating from the sweltering heat. The mixed kebab platter was nice and succulent with quite a few varieties. Kadhai chicken and yellow Dal tadka were up to the mark. Service was efficient. To top it off, the curd/yogurt was... More

We had a great meal- excellent tastes and freshness. Definitely recommend for the richness of the food. However we were greeted with a cocroach which was less than pleasant....but between us, which urban-settiny restaurant is actually cocroach-free?? So it was ok. In addition to food we ordered 2 lassis that were not on the menu. They were delicious. ...but once... More

The staff at Tantra were lovely and welcoming. The food was delicious. We had Onion Bhajis, saffron rice, the chickpeas (which were delicious), naan and chicken korma to share. Everything was perfectly cooked and we had a great meal for about 300 Baht per person!! Highly recommend :)

Had medium spicy dishes. That was hot! But if you like spicy food and a little knee pain from sitting on the floor, this is a nice experience (you can sit at tables as well). Remember to order several courses to share and rice and vegetables are side orders. Naan bread is a MUST. A nice break from the thai... More

Nothing fed our appetites other than the food at Tantra during our stay at Phuket. Accurate order Was served well in time every time. The taste of the food is second to none. The thought of it still tantalize my taste buds 👍

We were visiting Patong with family and Tantra became our regular hangout spot. The food is great although a bit pricey. Some of the items from the menu that we loved were Goa style masala prawns, tarka daal, chicken kadai and garlic prawns. Will definitely recommend for as good Indian food as it gets in Thailand.

Tantra is a superb Indian restaurant, right on Patong Beach. There are two separate dining areas, the traditional table & chairs, and also an area with cushions on the floor. Went for the former, which was very comfortable, after making the decision to give the cushions a swerve. The food was absolutely superb, I could still be sat there now... More

Yet another Indian restaurant and yet another place to fleece. The food tasted ok but what was most disappointing was their refusal to accept credit cards for less than 1000 bahts and forcing us to buy bottled water. Isn't serving water a mandatory thing? I am not sure so asking!!! And the biryani which we ordered had "human hair" in... More

This restaurant has a quite nice decoration. Interesting : it is split in two parts. One of them is equiped with low tables and sofas, in oriental way. There are big tv screens who show Bollywood programs. The food is nothing interesting. ( too much taste kills the taste) But if you choose classic meals like tandoori chicken, or masala... More

Located bang on the Patong beach, this small restaurant offers awesome Indian food and drinks. You have got the table and chairs and you have the arabian type seats as well with pillows and cushions. I was in Patong for 3 days and I had dinner here all 3 days. The hosts are very much hospitable, the food was delicious.... More
