SINCE opening 15 years ago Bawarchi Indian restaurant has earned a reputation for serving some of the tastiest curries and tandoori specials in town. Visit any of its five branches in Bangkok and you’re sure to enjoy a fulfilling feast – tikkas, kebabs, masalas, aloos, mutters and more – all made with the finest herbs and spices imported from Bawarchi’s own spice factory in Delhi.
While Bawarchi’s regular menu focuses on the traditional Mughlai cuisine of North West India, it also includes a good selection of famous regional dishes like Rogan josh and Tikka masala, plus a range of unique Thai-Indian fusion creations such as Mango chicken curry (B475++).
With all meat marinated overnight for maximum taste, the restaurant’s tandoori dishes never fail to impress. Especially the Tandoori lamb chops (B550++), whose tender meat delights with every herb-infused bite, and the Murgh malai kebab (B350++), chicken marinated with Indian herbs and cheese, which is rich, creamy, succulent and delicious.
Curries run the full gamut from spicy to buttery with vegetarian, lamb, chicken and seafood options all on offer. Popular choices include the Butter chicken (B400++), Lamb rogan josh (B490++), and Saag paneer (B375++). The restaurant’s signature Khas murg (B450++) is also worth a try.
All food is served swiftly and efficiently and always arrives at the table piping hot. You can team your selections with one of the many rice and Indian bread options on offer, and wash it all down with teas, lassis, beers, or a fine international wine (start at B1,200 per bottle; B350 per glass).
