Bawarchi hits the top of Indian food lovers

egtmedia59Bawarchi means “Chef” my old Indian friend, Mr. Mohan Gunti, Regional Director of Incapital, told me, when we were dining in style at the highly-praised Bawarchi Indian Restaurant at the basement of the President Tower Arcade of the Intercontinental Hotel in Bangkok.

At the end of September, we had met at Asoke Station to have lunch after not having seen each other for years and descended at Chitlom Station to enter the chosen restaurant nearby. EGT_Artical Banner A 250x250

Mohan was on his way from Phnom Penh in Cambodia to his native India for a visit and enjoys having Indian food, where ever he goes. As a real “Hindu” he cannot eat beef, while Indian Moslems cannot eat pork, so in most Indian restaurants chicken or mutton dishes are the most preferable choices together with vegetables, cheese, fish or other sea food specialties.

The Bawarchi is a kind of boutique restaurant and features a Mogul interior design creating a comfortable atmosphere for a nice get-together. As my daughter was joining for lunch, we were three altogether and got an introduction to the Indian cooking traditions by Assistant General Manager, Miss Satrajit Rakshit, who had joined the Bawarchi since two months.

After ordering the recommended “mango lassi” for drink, we started with a dish of “chicken tikka” eaten as a remarkable appetizer with its mouthwatering aroma of spices, herbs and rich sauces. Especially a selection of “chutneys” is for lovers of sweet taste. Also, we ordered the obligate “naan” bread, which is best to eat with a mild mutton curry dish, or if you like seafood, please order “tandoori king prawns” as a signature dish.

As on today’s special menu was mentioned “Hyderabad Biryani” – a delicious rice dish – we tried it together with some yoghurt and struggled along to the very end. We were all ascertained to come again on some other day to find out more sections of the menu such as barbecue chicken or even the spicy Bawarchi chicken curry to try at your own risk. Desserts should not to be missed!

Interesting to note is that there are three other Bawarchi Indian Restaurants in Bangkok, namely at Sukhumvit Soi 4, then Alif Laila at Sukhumvit Soi 3, as well as Bawarchi Sukhumvit at the Ambassador Hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 11. A fifth restaurant is coming up soon. Moreover, Bawarchi Indian Restaurants will likely expand into Myanmar in the future, all proof that Bawarchi hits the top of Indian food lovers.
