Well the title says it all. The worse Indian food I have had in Bangkok. I want to add this was their location located in little india. If your a tourist or even locals like us pass this one by.

Visited this restaurant at 4th Floor of Emporium Mall Sukhumvit Bangkok. Though there is limitation in selection but the food quality, cleanliness, the quantity and foood was good. Specially Nan and the Curries Made of Paneer were very good. The Chicken Tikka appeared to be very fresh and tender.

Simple food. Not too much spicy neither bland. The perfect blend of indian masalas which I think every hotel should follow. Also recevied many awards on the basis of its culinary. Little expensive as compared to near by dhabas in phau rat

If you happen to tire of the traditional flavors of thai cuisine and crave a different style of curry then Royal India is a nice change of pace. It's a easy walk from Yarowat road area of Chinatown and there a few little shops along the way to look for spices, fabric, and sweets. The restaurant is in a dark... More

We visited here whilst staying in Bangkok and can honestly say, don't bother. We LOVE Indian food so were excited to go and get some authentic dishes. The 'restaurant' is tucked down a soi and is really hidden away. We love stumbling upon places like this so were keen to get inside. Walking in, it really felt like we had... More

We had veg thali, and I can say by far it had the best subzi I have had. My husband and I have already decided to visit royal india whenever we visit Bangkok. Loved the food and service.

After 9 months travelling around the world, this was a real reminder of a tasty Indian curry British style. I went for the Thali option and had tasty mix of dishes. The samosas were a real highlight. We thought the quirky decor was great, the staff friendly, and pretty good value. As expected, there were lots of vegetarian options for... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown / Yaowarat
Better known as 'Yaowarat' among locals, Chinatown is Bangkok's bustling district that never sleeps. During the day, the main street and its small alleyways are filled with a vibrant mix of colours, scents and flavours coming from the roadside restaurants and all-day markets. The real action, however, happens after sunset. Surrounded by neon lights, Thais and tourists alike flock here around dinnertime to feast on some of the best street food in town. Escape the chaos by venturing a little further from the main road and discover hidden shrines, friendly locals and daily life in its purest form.
