Sukhumvit Area

For many travellers, the arterial Sukhumvit road is synonymous with


the vibrant nightlife of Bangkok. A number of odd and even numbered
Sois (streets) criss-cross along Sukhumvit, pregnant with glitzy malls,
restaurants and shops. The area comes alive in the evenings with
temporary stalls full of clothes, jewellery and bric-a-bracs emerging on
the sidewalks. The indispensable Sky Train rumbles above Sukhumvit
road, which extends into Pleonchit and Siam Square and will glide you
over the lively shopping hubs of the city.

Indian

a fine dining experience with


cuisine focused on Mughlai food
from North India. Dinner with live
ghazals and Bollywood music
performances are especially
popular.

Akbar

The 36 years old Akbar


Restaurant offers Indian,
Pakistani and Arabic cuisines
with plenty of options for
vegetarians. The location, just
off the Nana BTS Station, is an
added plus if you are looking for
a pit stop between shopping.

Himali Cha Cha & Son

Indian Hut

The elaborately carved wooden


door of the original Himali Cha
Cha ushers you into the award
winning 1979 establishment

the delicious North Indian fare,
Cha Chas lineage of cooking for
rich diplomats, including Lord
Mountbatten, is what brings many
food lovers here.

An amalgam of plush Indian-Thai


aesthetics and award winning
dishes from the North Indian
menu make Indian Hut a veritable
choice off the silver and silk
shopping area of Chareon Krung.
Try the palak kofta and paneer
kabab from the veg options.

Haveli

Dig in, with your hands!


When it comes to Indian
food, it is considered
proper etiquette to eat
with your hands. Of course your
hands should be washed and it is
traditionally suggested to use your
right hand. The left hand is not
used for eating; this is considered
offensive and unclean.

For authentic Indian flavours, visit

Haveli. While they are plenty of
options for non-vegetarians, the
veggies can order the time-tested
paneer, mixed vegetable and aloo
dishes.

Makhni are some of the top dishes
