This restaurant looks sparkling with floor to ceiling glass on two sides facing the street, so it's easy to see that the interior is nicely done in what I guess is Indian decor. However, with no customers on a Saturday evening, we were a little skeptical. But, we decided to try it. We wished we had walked on. Seating is comfortable, but with a wobbly table. The menu had only the names of the dishes with no explanation, so you would have to already know what composed the dishes to know what you were ordering. Or, I guess you could have your waiter explain each of the 200 items on the menu. How much trouble could it be to write a one line description below each dish name? We ordered vegetarian pakora, and it was more like vegetable tempura but with corn meal coating, and a little greasy. Then came the chicken kadai, a small dish of chicken pieces with a chunky vegetable sauce. We ordered butter naan, which was a little thick and doughy. We ate everything, so it wasn't terrible; it just wasn't that great. I can see why they don't have many customers.

We had food in different Indian restaurants in Bangkok . Most of them are good but found this hotel as Best among all.
Say it for décor, quality of food & behavior of waiters etc. We were surprised to taste authentic Indian cuisine here.
We found the food quality as better than many restaurants in India.

This place was on the same road as our hotel and we walked past several times, each time thinking it looked nice.

On our final night we decided to pop in. I'm glad we did. Although a lot of the dishes are not immediately recognisable from an English-Indian restaurant, the waiter was happy to make suggestions. Interestingly, the one dish I didn't really want to order was the Tikka Massala, as everybody always seems to go with this as a safe option. However, the waiter recommended it and it was DELICIOUS. My partner had a vegetarian paneer dish, which was also very good.

Price-wise, it was decent for Bangkok: for two curries, two naans, a rice and a couple of drinks it came to 1130 Bht, including the VAT and 10% service charge.

Certainly recommended.

Every time we headed for Sukhumvit Road we passed this Indian restaurant, the trouble was, it never seemed to have many customers. We decided to give it a try and are so glad that we did. The menu is not very extensive and there is no pretentious descriptions of each dish so beloved by Indian restaurants. The waiters are more than willing and helpful when explaining each dish. The meal we had was quite delicious. Half way through our dinner, a party of about twenty middle aged Indians came in for dinner and this for me, was the clincher of how good this restaurant actually is.
