Indian restaurants in Thailand – listed below.
If you are wondering what to eat in Thailand, then you have come to the right place. Bangkok has several Indian restaurants that serve food like in any restaurant back in India, try a Dosa, a Thali and some non vegetarian delights from India like Tandoori chicken. Chiangmai the second most important city in Thailand also offers a few Indian restaurants. Typically, Indian food in Thailand is more expensive than average Thai food. Expect to pay between 200 to 500 Thai bahts about INR 400-1000 for a meal. Compare that to awesome Thai food from THB30 (INR60) – THB300(INR600) on an average. Vegetarian Indians have a few options too. Check the city wise listings of Indian restaurants in Thailand.

UK style Indian cuisine in Bangkok?!!
The Balti restaurants that dish up some Indian delights like chicken Tikka masala and other less spiced suited to UK palate is what you can expect at some of the Indian restaurants in Bangkok. You will most certainly get the garlic naan and other curries. I have eaten at quite a few Bangkok Indian restaurants and I can say that many don’t come close to what you get back in India. Considering the fact that some ingredients are hard to source in Thailand, They still do a good job. Indian restaurants in Pattaya seem to be doing better. I’m yet to have a nice Gulab Jamun, Rabdi Jalebi here although they are available in some places I have listed below. The best way would be to call them and check, if these restaurants are Indian owned they should be able to speak some English or Hindi. I have found it Wow! Bangkok has a Mithai ki Dukan (sweet shop) in The Royal India restaurants, they sell many Indian sweets at reasonable prices. So next time you go to Bangkok You know where to get Gajar ka Halwa for just 300 bahts a kg made from pure Desi Ghee.

Where can you get good Indian food in Bangkok?
In Bangkok you can try the rainbow restaurant (they speak Hindi) opposite the Chanasongkram police station Khao san road, expect average dhaba style naan and curries. Certainly a good place to get chicken Tikka masala, daal fry and good roti/naan. There are many restaurants serving Indian food around the Nana area. As an Indian I would rate Indian food in Bangkok at best to be about average. I haven’t found a decent biryani in Bangkok yet . The pricier Rangmahal restaurant in the Rembrandt hotel would be a nice option if you are not pinching pennies. Indian restaurants in Bangkok are usually run by Punjabi people or serve the North Indian cuisine, There are a few Tamil restaurants but not much else, I have not found any Hyderabadi style Biryani and chai.
Royal India restaurant by far is one of the best mid-range to very affordable standard Indian restaurants. They have everything you can get in Delhi or Mumbai’s North Indian restaurants. Certainly worth a visit. This Indian restaurant in the “little India” of Bangkok won’t burn a hole in your wallet. Royal India has some differences in prices among its branches, the most affordable one certainly is the Pahurat branch where you can also get a nice Thali which is not available at Rambuttri branch. The Emporium branch in the Emporium food mall is pricier and trendier too. Check the tabs below to spot the differences.

Himali chacha (chacha means uncle in Hindi).
Address: Sukhumvit Soi 31,Bangkok, Thailand
Phone: 022596677, 022596900

Review: Very interesting menu with a wide variety of choice and good price range. Himali chacha certainly has all the regulars that the English know like Naan, Tandoori chicken, Dal, Papads and Parathas. What stands out is their Gurda Kapura which is an Indian chicken gizzard curry usually eaten at a breakfast in Hyderabad and Mumbai. Another interesting item in the Himali chacha menu is the Crab Kofta curry and Mutton Chutney walla. They have Bheja masala (brain masala – usually goat brains), liver masala, Bengali fish curry and Goan Vindaloo. The most expensive dish is an appetizer Prawn Tandoori at 350 bahts and the least expensive one is the Papadum or papad at 15 bahts. Overall definitely worth a visit and the cuisine spans from Punjabi, Mughlai, Bengali to southern non-veg delights and mulligatawny soup. I would say this could be one of the best Indian restaurants in Bangkok.

They claim to be the best North Indian restaurant in Bangkok. If you are Indian then you would certainly know. Indians from the UK or those who are used to the UK style Indian cuisine might find this place very interesting. They also serve the Kofta curry – Cannonball Kofta what we call Malai Kofta in India.

Indian host (aapka dost!)
Address:30 Soi Sukhumvit 22, Klongtoey Bangkok 10110 open 11:30am to 11:30pm Phone: 022601115-6
This amazing Indian restaurant is in Sukhumvit Soi 22. This restaurant serves excellent Mutton Kabuli Raan, In India mutton means goat meat. Raan is the leg/thigh of a goat, the succulent soft and delicious Mutton kabuli Raan is sought after all over India. This fine Indian restaurant in Bangkok offers mutton kabuli raan, Bhatti da chicken, Peshawari barrah kebabs along with other north Indian dishes like the naans and the tikkas. Their Thali is well priced at 199 bahts. I would highly recommend eating here. Indians love Rasmalai and Gajjar ka halwa they are both available here at Indian host they call themselves aapka dost. Nice tag line if you understand Hindi.
Pattaya boasts of quite a few Indian restaurants that can rival the Indian restaurants in Bangkok. Most Indians on a tour package would probably get an Indian lunch or dinner buffet. There are many near Jomtien area. Roti sells for 25 bahts a piece just to give you an idea.
The prices are like in Bangkok or higher. Expect to pay 300 to 1000 bahts a meal.
