    Indian restaurant BKK

    I want to introduce my bird to the delights of traditional English food so was wondering if anyone can suggest a good Indian restaurant, ideally away from whoreville.

    Cheers in advance

    I guess most Indian (Paki) restaurants are in or near to farang areas, or whoresville if you see it that way.

    I also read somewhere that there are more Indian restaurants in the UK than in India, but most of them are also in farang areas.

    most indian restaurants in bangkok are even filthier and more of a health hazard for the unaccustomed than the ones in india. the food being prepared by men rather than women.

    those that like indian food recommend the restaurants in the pahurat area of bangkok, that's where the indian businesses and markets are to be found.

    Unless it's in a 5 star hotel, she won't like it.
    She will think the restaurant is dirty.
    The staff are dirty.
    The food is dirty.
    And you, for taking there are dirty by association.

    Used to be a really good one years ago behind Nana Plaza, but that's in one of the OP's No-Fly zones.

    Honestly can't understand the whore restriction. Really limiting.

    Have to say, it is an up hill struggle getting a Thai lass to enjoy indian food. It can be done on rare occassions, but definately a struggle.

    They are not normally keen on the smell of the food to start, and the oily "ghee" component in particular.

    If she is not already open minded and tried a few foreign cuisines, OP will have a very sad time...

    Despite the rjadhamma the bhuddhism the average Thai lady hi-s or paddy plucked thinks our brothers of the sub-continent be they beeming Bengalis,Immaculte Indians oh goodness gracious me or for your good self perfect pukka Pakistani chaps in jodphurs owners of floating Palaces and and theKoh-i;Noor they wall be filthy wogs too her.

    You cannot have your kek and eat in these parts.

    Most Indian cuicsine 90@ is veggie and can be had at the disgucting temple side restos or Madras Lodge Silom (hairy chepo backpackers)
    Chicken Peeka Masala was invented in Uk .I worled for a year at an Indian Uni and its uneard of .

    Most stuff I like is Portuguese Goan chef inspred Vindaloo ( Vinho d'alho= wine and garlic used to disguise the rotten shipboard provender of old mutton,that was just the nurses)

    Plau Pinang gave use Curry Kapitan

    My advice take her somewhere French <italian better with white tableclothes and flunkeys if you keep off the wine no dearer than a shitty curry served by people she will disparage.

    Barolo and and prawn Pizza ay Alfredos just ask for the legopener carafe as favoured by Giovanni di Condomi


    The backpacker ghetto behind Wat ChanaSonghkran has a few flash packer cuury house where suc on a Shisha she'll be so amazed looking at the Trustafarians in rags dreadlocks having done Nepal on 3 rupees a day she wont notice the Cat Korma on a bed of old Okra and busladyfingers

    Or Splash out 300 baht a head La Primavera,Italian ,wine by glass Herbert Austrian owner keeps it spotless and Tahi staff knw what sorbets pastas (sweet for yur lady).

    Once she's sleeping ou off time for a Kebab or a sheetlifting Vindaloo with me at Nana

    It' best value at a tenner $15 .If you wanna push bpat and the 5 wines champagne cocktails worth half of the $200 Lunch ONly Menu Degustation at La Normandie I'll be there too!

    I know that there is a good Indian restaurant in Soi 11 but not sure if it is the same one as Davis has recommended. It's not very far from Cheap Charlie's bar and on the other side of the road. It isn't cheap but the food is good. Generally, the food in the lower numbered sois of Sukhumwit is expensive and/or rubbish, I'm afraid.

    Nor me. Funnily enough the wife was footing the bill. Amused us both at the time.

    There are two good ones on Soi 11, but Mrs. Balbir's I thought was better. I can't remember the name of the other one.

    For no problems at all but at a very high price take her to Rang Mahal in the Rembrandt Hotel on Sukumvit 18. Nice high floor location, very hoity toity, but damn good northern Indian food. The do a brunch on Sundays. If she does not like the food, with the atmosphere, parking, then give up and do Isaan.

    My wife looks forward to our occasional gastronomic foray into Saudi Pattaya. I haven't reached Indian with her in LoS, but she took to it in London.

    Ha, I was sat next to my mate in Ubon airport when he asked me this exact question to give someone advice via instant message. I suggested Rang Mahal at the Rembrandt. He may have suggested Indus. I'm guessing that was you. What did you go for?
