    Indian Hut

    After many people had recommended this Indian restaurant on Suriwong opposite the Manhora Hotel I decided to give it a try.
    Conclusion. It wasn't really worth the effort of finding it.

    It would appear that I am in the minority as when we entered the place was full to the rafters mainly with Indians. so i dont think that they wil be worrying about not having my custom.

    Restaurant looks nice- with an upmarket feel lots of white including tablecloths whcih is not so good for me with my table maners.
    Menu aside from its Jain specialities didn't look too different from any north indian restaurant.

    Dining with a Thai who had never before eaten Indian I was not too adventurous in my selections
    Padi chaat and samosa to start.
    Samosa were poor - too much dry pastry, although my guest enjoyed them. and the chaat was quite disappointing- far too much yoghurt for my liking almost souplike with potato pieces whcih were far to big.

    For the main course we had safrron rice - very nice. Why can i not get rice like this in a Thai restaurant where I almost always neeed a knife to cut it. Here each grain was independent of the other and he rice felt quite light.
    The Murgh Aloo tasted fine but could have been spicier but the sauce was very thick.
    We both enjoyed the Bhindi Masala but for me it was simply because it had been sometime since i had last eaten it.
    The potato stuffed paratha was very good. Actually they stuff parathas with manyb things at this restaurant- nice.

    Service was fine and friendly.
    No alcohol the bill was 800+ baht.

    Oh and before I forget the portions were large- too large if eating alone but they will give you a doggy bag if asked.

    Still looking for that great Indian restuarant at a resonable price

    You'll have to go to Singapore or Malaysia for that.

    That quote right there hit the nail on the head. For anything but the top notch Indian cuisine you need to be out of Thailand. There is little to no medium of even budget priced Indian food here. Where as in Penang, oh my goodness!

    We do have a sizeable Indian community but still it is not there.

    Have you ever eaten food in India? Pigswill.

    The only decent Indian food is found in civilised countries.

    I agree with that comment based on my limited experience there.
    I do keep falling into the trap here though.
    "perhaps this one will be ok" and then on leaving the establishment "never again"

    I also now find indian food a bit heavy for my tastes.
    I prefer the snack food.
    After 20 years living as the only farang in an extended indian family i do miss it once in a while

    Agreed! I had Deli belly for a fortnight after eating in a 5 star hotel in Deli.

    There are a some good ones in Phuket that I go to for take-aways.

    There's Mr. India in Chalong Plaza who does what I think is a very nice Chicken Tikka Masala or Chicken Madras (he calls it hot chicken curry, but it's what I think is a Madras). He gives big portions, but a bit pricey. He used to have a tailor's shop somewhere before the tsunami (Khao Lak, maybe) but lost everything.

    The other one is the Red Chilli on the road from Chalong to Rawai. He does a passable Madras and a Jalfrezi.

    There are some bad ones which I haven't named and I know there are lots of good ones elsewhere in Phuket, but haven't bothered to find them.

    Malaysian Auntie used to have really good, really cheap Indian food, but now that she has moved from Suk soi 8 to a place off Suriwongse that is very hard to find, it hardly seems worth the effort to get there and find the place.

    Why did you call aging one 'Pigswill', Marmite?

    I like the restaurants behind Baiyoke.
    They're not fancy but their food is good and cheap.

    I'm gonna disagree with the lot of ya.

    Good thick curry instead of the water type at the cheap places, you can ask for it spicy, and the best samosas in town.

    Different strokes i guess..................

    It'll cost you an arm and a leg though

    Funnily enough I walked past Indian Hut last week by mistake, I didn't know that was its location on a dreary polluted street between Silom and Siphraya pier

    The Rang Mahal in Rembrant hotel is great for a fancy night out in bkk.
    Food service music all first class.
    All the indian rest. in Patong are abysmal.

    Malaysia is the place to chow down on good cheap indian food!
    And swill good tasting beer.
