About Indus:

Indus has consistently maintained its high standards and dedication to  serving authentic Mughalai Style Indian cuisine since 2005. The restaurant, set in a 1960s Art Deco house, comprises an elegant dining room, a capacious bar, a tropical garden with alfresco seating, and private dining room.  Although very popular with expatriates, Indus is credited for initiating (and converting) many Thai diners to being fans of Indian cuisine.

The interior walls are dotted with an impressive art collection, while doorways are fitted with antique Rajasthani frames to create an ambiance of elegance. Dim lighting, lounge music, and an all around view of the well-manicured garden set the tone for fine dining experience.

Chef Jimmy, who has been with the restaurant since the day it opened, leads the team at Indus together with General Manager Yash Pal. Jimmy received his training from Chef Sonya Sapru, author of “Zaika,” a best-selling recipe book comprising her family’s 6 generations of recipes.  Recently Indus welcomed Sous Chef Pratab Singh, formerly at Bukhara at the ITC Mauraya in New Delhi, one of the most highly reputed tandoori style restaurants in the world.

The consistency, powerful yet delicate flavors, and dedication to quality have kept diners coming back time and again. The cuisine is served in traditional Indian copper and brassware as well as on classical Thai celadon dining plates.

Emphasis is placed on sourcing high quality local ingredients grown in sustainable conditions – with as many as possible being organic and with a low carbon footprint. This includes growing some of the ingredients on a farm owned by the restaurant, and visits to farms that they procure from. The Indian spices are imported whole (vs. powdered) and kept in temperature controlled conditions, then ground by hand on a daily basis to retain freshness and a dedication to tradition.
