The Phahurat Little India area is found next to Chinatown in the Old City area of Bangkok. The area is great for cheap eating, cheap shopping and for observing Indian cultures in urban Bangkok. The popular Sampeng market sits next to the main Phahurat Road.
Phahurat Little India is the only place to be for cheap and authentic Indian cuisine. The recommended Phahurat restaurant is the award winning Royal India Restaurant which serves some of Bangkok’s best North Indian cuisine. If this restaurant was found elsewhere in a central Bangkok location the prices would be 3 times what they are in Phahurat.
