The new face of Indian food on Sukhumvit 22


The upsurge in Indian visitors to Thailand is reflected in Sukhumvit Soi 22, where the number of Indian restaurants has increased from two to about 10 in the last two years. Indian Essence Art, which reopened in November 2018 after a major renovation, is riding that trend with its innovative mix of northern Indian classics — its main focus — alongside southern Indian dishes, Indo-Chinese appetisers, seafood, noodles, pizza, pasta, vegetarian options and even Greek salad.

“We offer a complete package and even dishes for children. We are presenting the new face of Indian food,” says managing director Mintu Kushwah, formerly a chef in five-star hotels. “All our staff are from hotel backgrounds and have been trained to a high standard.”

The restaurant has a modern ambiance with colourful art on one wall and the wide-ranging menu on boards on the other. Diners can see the chefs at work in an open kitchen behind the bar. A terrace offers al-fresco dining or just a relaxing space to enjoy drinks including wines, spirits and beers.

Naturally, first up, papadums (100 baht) complemented with the full range of dips one would expect, savoury and satisfying.

Although some Thais are reluctant to try Indian food because of its strong smell, my Thai dining partner was soon converted by the delicately spiced dishes from the tandoor clay oven.

The Tandoori Chicken (275 baht), Chicken Malai Tikka (280 baht), quirky Beetroot Kebab (260 baht) and Paneer Cheese Tikka (275 baht) were all hungrily devoured along with freshly baked breads from the tandoor — Garlic Naan (90 baht), Lacha Paratha wheat flour bread (80 baht) and mint-topped Padina Paratha (80 baht).

The ever-popular lamb Biryani (395 baht), served with cooling raita made with yoghurt and cucumber, was a delightful rice dish, while Chicken Tikka Masala (295 baht) was a curry that tickled the taste buds without being overpowering.

The dessert menu included the famous Gulab Jamun milk-based sweet (120 baht) but we were too full to venture there.

Indian Essence Art, which has a sister restaurant of the same name only 200 metres away on the main Sukhumvit Road, opens at 10am to serve breakfast, mainly for Indians staying nearby who cannot find dosas and other Indian treats in their hotels.

But Thais are increasingly being switched on to Indian cuisine. “We are getting more and more Thai customers,” says Mintu. “When they taste the quality of our food and can even see it being prepared, they really enjoy it.”
