Where should I go for good Indian food in the Sukhimvit area of Bangkok?

Reader’s E-mail:

I am staying on the Sukhumvit Road. Can you suggest a good Indian restaurant nearby?

Reply from Thailand Info

We recommend Akbar Restaurant at 1/4 on Soi 3 at the bottom end of the Sukumvit Road, it is the road opposite Sukhumvit Soi 2 which leads with the Nana entertainment plaza.

Long Running Indian Restaurant

This is one of the longest running Indian restaurants in the Sukhumvit area and the food is great, Most of the clientele are Indian or Pakistani ex-pats and visiting business men, which I feel is testament to the quality of the food. The very friendly owner tells me that they have an Indian chef in the kitchen.

Great Menu and Great Service

The restaurant is nicely decorated and service is quick and efficient. The menu is extensive and is suited to the Western palate as the dishes aren’t quite as salty as they are sometimes in Indian. As well as the authentic Indian dishes they also have dishes like Vindaloo, Korma and Madras which are familiar to people from the UK.

Not Expensive

Expect to pay around 250 THB for a curry, and 80 baht for a naan bread. Starters are around 150 THB a plate. Beer is around 120 THB a big bottle. For a full and very satisfying meal with drinks it is about 500 THB a head.

Location of Akbar Restaurant

Akbar is located on the far side of Soi 3 if you are coming from the Nana BTS station about 50 metres off the Sukhumvit Road.
