Bangkok Little India is not a tourist attraction. It is found in a hard to reach location and has little to offer tourists. No majestic Hindu temples or distinct Indian cultures to excite visitors. I guess, if in the area, it maybe worth checking out. But maybe not. The main attraction for Bangkok Little India is the busy Sampeng market a network of back alleys where locals peddle fabrics, textiles, gifts and accessories (Sampeng Blog here). If this is what interests you then Bangkok Little India is the place to be. Otherwise there is little else to do. Maybe call in at Gurdwara Siri Guru Singh Sabha (Sikh Temple)? Certainly not worth the trek across the city. Bangkok Little India (Pahurat) is found near Bangkok Chinatown on the main Phahurat Road (directions here).
Eating in Bangkok Little India
As expected you will find Indian food but not in abundance. Where blogs say best Indian food outside India this couldn’t be more wrong. In comparison to mamak restaurants of Malaysia and Indian Singaporean food – Bangkok little India is rubbish. For the best Indian food in Southeast Asia follow the British trade routes. Penang, Melaka, Singapore. For the best Indian food in Bangkok stick to the city centre. While food isn’t bad in Little India a trek from central Bangkok won’t be worthwhile. The best restaurant in Bangkok Little India is Royal India Restaurant (North Indian cuisine) which now has branches across the city. Also great Samosas from the samosa guy opposite.
