Some of the best Indian food we've ever had! It was definitely nothing fancy but SO delicious and cheap. It's kind of hard to find (in an alley) but so worth it. We both got the variety meal with a bunch of different dishes. Plus AC which is rare (and important!) for restaurants in that area. Go here!!

The place is hard to find yet the food is good. They have a lot of options to choose from. The seating place is big comparatively to other places and its not so hot here.

Was really fancying some Indian food and stumbled across this place (I LOVE Indian food). Despite the restaurant itself looking very nice, the quality of the food was awful. I had a Korma which tasted nothing like any other Korma I've ever had. The chicken was fatty and stringy. The rice wasn't even Indian rice, it was Thai rice. I... More

Found this recommended in Lonely Planet - a nightmare to find - basically in an alleyway off a canal street running between Chakrapher and Charrapawet - a Sikh man showed us then we were fine Visited 2 days running Do not expect plush, stylish - it is an alleyway eatery BUT delicious

This is a pretty good hole-in-wall Indian place near Sean Fest in Thonburi. They also deliver on Food Panda. I love Indian food generally, and I am really happy with this place. I've tried about 10 different dishes and they are full of complex flavor. The nan bread is gigantic and freshly made (and less fluffy than the U.S.-Indian version)... More

The wait for the food after the order was around 30 minutes.. The menu is expensive and after 30 minutes of waiting , the food served to us was pathetic and below... More

The menu is good but the food was served cold and the portions were tiny. There are far better Indian restaurants in Bangkok than this so unless you are at Siam Paragon and absolutely must have an Indian then I would avoid this place. You also feel like you are sitting in an airport

Staying in Chinatown / Yaowarat

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During the day, the main street and its small alleyways are filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and all-day markets. The real action, however, happens after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
