Good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and Mughalai cuisine fit for royalty

Where better to celebrate Diwali than Indus? Since opening in 2006, the restaurant has grown into Bangkok’s premier venue for Mughlai cuisine; dishing up northern Indian and Pakistani classics in a sleek 1960s house and garden. The restaurant has built its reputation on tandooris and unctuous curries, a 10-course tasting menu, hyper-vigilant service and a shisha bar.

This month, in honor of Diwali—the ancient festival of triumph, joy and lights—Indus has designed and unveiled an exclusive all-you-can-eat holiday extravaganza. But plan accordingly: it runs only two days (Oct 26-27) and is limited to lunch (11.30am - 2.30pm). B950 ++ includes sparkling wine.
