Getting tired of all the heavy sauce rich northern Indian cooking that seems to be the Bangkok subcontinent norm? Make your way over to this tucked away little southern Indian food haven on Sukhumvit. This hole in the wall dishes up excellent masala dosas (crepes stuffed with potatoes and vegetables) and sambhar iddly (rice cakes with lentils), both of which you can smother in coconut chutney and spicy dal which is served alongside. If you use a fork or spoon here you will be a minority, and if you don't the old lady who runs the place will beam lovingly at you and dish out another round of chutney. Recommended and soft on the pocket too.
392/23-24 Sukhumvit Soi 20/1
- Daily 10am-10pm
- Indian: "If you aren't familiar with southern Indian food, dosa and iddly are commonly eaten for breakfast, and only in places that specialize in preparing the proper batter to make the crepes. There is no set way to eat either, some folks dip their dosas in the condiments, others pour it all on top and mix everything together, but no utensils is the norm."
- Best for Indian Because: For Bangkok's best dosas and southern cooking, Shree Ganesh heads the list.
