Forget everything you know about Indian food—greasy, heavy, and spicy—and let Indus show you how it really is. Serving authentic Mughlai style Indian cuisine since 2005, a refined Indian restaurant Indus is renowned as one of the finest Indian restaurants in town, thanks to its authentic Indian flavors with a fresh, light, and creative twist along with its stupendous yet responsive service, secluded location, and sophisticated ambience.
Occupying a 1960s art deco house on Sukhumvit 26, Indus’s interiors are lavishly adorned with opulent stone bricks and striking artifacts and art pieces, but also stylishly decorated with a new world elegance. The well-appointed dining area is completed with beautiful frescos of Indian nobles and tall glass windows overlooking a leafy, serene garden with outdoor seating. Guests can also choose to sit in an elegant bar lounge or opt for a private room.
Culinary Team of Professionals
The strong force at Indus is led by the restaurant’s general manager, Yash Pal Thakur and the creator of restaurant’s splendid dishes, chef Nitin Kumar. Together, they dominate the Indian food scene in Bangkok, making Indus one of the most favorite Indian restaurants among Indian communities, expat circles, and, of course, Thai people.
Indian Cuisine with Fresh Twist
Taking Indian food to a whole new level, the Chicken Chettinad is very well presented with a delicate layer of peppery spiced chicken, roomali roti, and cheese, together with beetroot puree adding color and flavor to the dish. This is followed by the Chicken Chaat, an innovative Indian starter of succulent pieces of chicken tossed in light mustard infused dressing, served on a fried cracker as a finger food.
Freshly-made in a traditional tandoor oven, the kebab menu here brings the delicious heat from India to your palate. Enchant your taste buds with the Indus Nawabi Raan, a definite highlight at Indus made with 7-hour slow cooked pulled leg of mutton or simply go for the classic items like the Indus Kebab-E-Malai (yogurt, cream, cheese, and mace, and cardamom marinated chicken) and the Chicken Tikka (mustard oil, Kashmiri chili, hung curd, fenugreek, and garam masala marinated chicken). The Shikampuri Kebab, meanwhile, spices up your appetite with mutton patties stuffed with Indian-spiced hung yogurt.
For those craving seafood, the Scallop Kalimirch brings some magic to your plate with peppercorn crusted tawa (Indian frying pan)-seared scallop served atop spiced tomato garlic sauce while the Tandoori Prawns is distinctively hot with fresh tiger prawn marinated in grain mustard, fenugreek leaves, and lime juice. There are also meatless kabab options for discerning vegetarians like the Tandoori Creamy Broccoli, a meat-free dish of tender pieces of roasted broccoli florets marinated with cardamom infused yogurt, cream, and cheese, and the Achari Paneer Tikka, an Indian staple of cottage cheese marinated in hung yogurt, yellow chili powder and pickle spices.
As is to be expected there are also scores of curry choices to choose from. Scrumptious but not heavily spiced, the Kashmiri Rogan Josh is tastefully served in a silver pot with extremely tender mutton simmered with an array of masterfully blended spices, giving a mild heat and aroma to the dish. The same goes for the Butter Chicken, a rich yet light curry of charcoal smoked chicken soaked in blissful tomato gravy with butter and cream. Another highlight is the Hyderabadi delicacy Bhagare Baingan, a whole eggplant bathed in a nutty and creamy peanut flavored puree, which makes a perfect pairing with the Murgh Dum Biryani, an aromatic basmati rice layered with spiced chicken, brown onion, and saffron.
There’s also tasty freshly baked breads, such as Plain Naan (leavened fluffy bread), Paratha (whole wheat layered bread), and Roomanli (ultra-thin flatbread), that go well on almost everything.
For desserts, try the classic Gulab Jamun, heavenly sweet balls of milk solids doused in a sugary syrup and garnished with almonds or opt for the Semiya Payasam, a traditional Indian dessert prepared with milk, roasted vermicelli, almonds, plums, and apricots and the Beetroot Halwa, a festive combo of grated beetroot, milk, ghee, and sugar, garnished with almonds to enhance flavor.
India in a Glass
The drink menu here is also extensive. The Basil Cucumber Twist is fresh and aromatic with a well-mix of gin, triple sec, and cranberry juice with cucumber and basil. Also, the Indus-style Mojito is surprisingly refreshing with a blend of rum, lemon, mint, and spiced masala syrup for an Indian touch. However, ladies might be attracted to the Lady Lying on Lemongrass, made with rum, peach, pineapple, basil, lemongrass, and lemon juice.
“Whether you are looking for a healthy and delicate food, a family-friendly dinner, or a romantic getaway, Indus is the place where you will surely impress the ones you love with high quality of food and service. We offer you the best possible experience every time you dine at Indus,” said Yash Pal Thakur, General Manager of Indus.
