While those looking for authentic cheap Indian street eats in Bangkok head for Pahurat, near Chinatown, often referred to as Little India, or else to the heavily Indian populated area of the Pratunam Market, where there are hundreds of Indian restaurants, there are actually far more interesting and delectable options, almost rivalling Italian or French cuisine in the City of Angels. Gaggan, often tagged as "molecular masala," won the Best Restaurant in Asia Award in 2015, 2016, and 2017, and is listed as the 7th Best Restaurant in the World for 2017. Other elegant and truly high end Indian choices include the stylish Indus, Maya, the opulent Rang Mahal in the Rembrandt Hotel, and much faved Bawarchi, with its mix of fusion and traditional dishes. Also joining the list is The Great Kebab Factory, where they do some 450 different types of kebabs, and Charcoal, a unique Indian experience pairing signature cocktails with northern Indian staples all under the concept of "fun dining." For something a bit more down to earth and traditional, try Royal india, or Indian Hut, which despite its Pizza Hut similar appearance, actually is a fine dining Indian spot that has been pleasing the customers for years. For home cooking style or southern Indian treats like masala dosas or sambhar iddly, make sure to pay a visit to Shree Ganesh. The range of curries, dal, traditional sweets, and more is pretty amazing in Bangkok, and it's hard to select just one place for a meal.
