    Masala Art

    ...6th floor, Siam Icon. One thing we noticed immediately is that the kitchen is behind a large window: we saw all of our order being prepared. In one go, we ordered veggie biryani, roasted eggplant mash, bindi and garlic nan. The order took 20-25 minutes...a good sign that yesterday's goop wouldn't be reheated (I'm looking at you, Mrs. Balbir). The meal was worth the wait: smoky goodness from the eggplant, crisp okra in tomato sauce, tasty biryani and the fresh nan pulled from the tandoori oven. All excellent, fresh, and flavorful. Imo, the best Indian cuisine I've had in Bangkok. Our next visit in the very near future will include tandoori specialties, cucumber yogurt, and different veggie dishes. Surprisingly (for the location), the checkbin (including one Heineken) wasn't too bad.

    I have general damage idea from Menu link. If it is good, damage is inconsequential.
    Only in town a couple of days but will try to get to Masala Art.
    Must hookup with a couple old friends. Both in restaurant biz so will get a good feed.

    looks interesting, what's the damage. Probably around 1500 THB from your previous budget

    it looks really clean and nice, though I like to eat that kind of food in a dirty and open air Indian restaurant, it feels more authentic

    if you were not such a dumb cnut you would add it up from the menu link that Norts provided

    if you could not be bothered to do that , then you are doubling down on your image as an oxygen thief

    good review as usual, icon is a bit far for me usually but the dearth of decent indian food may push me. Have you tried kebab and curries on Sukhumwit 31 Tomcat, its a bit different but can get a good discount with the eatigo app

    good point, that naan was a bit below par, don't think I would touched it. Better Naan on Soi 3 and sitting outside with the dirty sweating locals is quite the experience. They have the best curry there!!!

    but if you are gay and sport a Pierre Cardin shirt, I can see how a nice Indian place might be a better fit.

    Yeah I guess,
    homecooked ones only maybe

    does get some great reviews that place I see, although to me a nan should be full, of family size, a little burned and crispy on the ends with a great big runny chicken balti gagging to be dipped in and de juiced.
