Indian Recommendations In Bangkok

Recommended Posts

Does Rang Mahal in Rembrandt Hotel serve Thali? Set meals with a small variety of dishes? (Whats the cost of those?)

Ya know, I love the food there but 195++ for plain white rice even if its basmati rice is ridiculous.

I'm quite sure thats what the menu Smokie posted says. Never noticed that before, but then I tend to go to the Sunday brunch buffet and didnt have to order rice. It's more expensive than the beer!

Lol

I agree that it is overpriced. Frankly one meal order is enough for two people anyway....that is how I order there.....with the exception of Sundays of course.

195++ for plain rice is more than just overpriced. I think it's a rip off!!

I think 895 Baht.....and its a lottery....sometimes very good indeed.....depends upon the dishes chosen that day. The lamb rogan josh is excellent....as is the kebab done to order.

My feeling is that the buffet is generally good value....but you takes your chances!

For that money you get a large platter of rice - probably enough for 4 people - so it's expensive, but not totally unreasonably.

I'd rather go for the buffet Sunday brunch

850 net.

The best I've had, and good value.

Appetizers of all sorts, my favorite is the potato chaat.

They also had fusion style pasta - SKIP THAT!!!

The kebabs in pita bread are not bad. But what you really want is the freshly made wraps - chicken or lamb cooked in spices and wrapped in the wrappy things :P

Curries - prawns are good. The lamb is absolutely mmmmm. Chicken is not bad. But if you go on the day they serve fish curry, I wouldn't touch that. Might appeal to some, but fish in Indian curry doesn't work for me

They also serve some South Indian dishes - sambal, idli and a couple other gravy and the thick yogurt.

Plus you can order hot rotis, including the dosa which is really yummy.

For dessert, they serve western and Indian. The western is ok I suppose, cakes and mousses, creame brulee and similar standard buffet dessert. However, I go for Indian food, so it's definitely Indian dessert. Three things come to mind, and I will list in order of yumminess

Ras Malai

Gulab jamun - ohhh so soft, nicely warm and makes me crave just thinking

But the best of the best, is the dry halwa. Mmmmmm. Mind you, not for the health conscious. It's cooked in a fair bit of oil and is quite sweet. But mmmmm. I take a small three spoons, but always have to go back for more

The buffet includes drinks - lassi, various fresh juices. And you can order tea, coffee etc at the end. I end mind on a masala chai. Perfect!

Ohhh oops Green, I got carried away :P my verdict - definitely worth going for the buffet even if you aren't a big eater. If you are planning to go to rangmahal, then buffet is the best value you get there. A la carte, if you order one curry, one roti and a drink... That's already close to 700 baht I suspect

Re the question about the Indian place below Nana BTS, I haven't tried them, but they're called Aryaa's Indian Restaurant.

The main restaurant is just a small single doorway entrance along the even-sois side of Suk Road, just below the Nana BTS station. Then they have a small shop upstairs inside the Nana BTS station on the Soi 8/11 side with a few seats and trays of food.

http://www.aryaas.net/

There's a lot of Indian places in that general area, including the main Mrs. Balbir's branch on the other side of Sukhumvit on Soi 11/1. There also a reasonable popular but hidden away Indian restaurant on a side soi just inside Soi 8 called called Namuskaar. No atmosphere, just food.

And there's also branches of Bawarchi on Suk Soi 4 and also Soi 11, and Bukhara's on Suk Road between Sois 5 and 7.

All the Indian places in Sukamvhit road suck! Quite expensive too. Also try around the Indian temple on silom road down the little sois.

Tamil Nadu, south indian in a little 3 story shop house, must be a mama-papa place - anyone else can vouch for it? Open 10-10pm
