A review of Rang Mahal, a legendary Indian restaurant that has been open for more than 20 years, is located on the 26th Floor of the Rembrandt Hotel Bangkok. For those planning on having a good Indian meal, read on for the strong/weak points, and recommended menu items of the restaurant.

Overview

อาหารอินเดีย

Strong Points

• Delicious food, intense but not too pungent, flavorful and very easy to eat.
• Nice view, good atmosphere.
• Parking available
• Good service provided by excellent service-minded staff.

Weak Points

• Prices are a bit higher than other Indian restaurants.
• Those who are unfamiliar with typical Indian service may not like it (but personally I liked it).

For anyone who wants to try out good Indian food, Rang Mahal will be among the first name that we would like to recommend as the food quality can be considered to be in the top tier.

The interior is decorated with elegant Mughal architecture, which can be combined perfectly with the stunning view of Bangkok on the 26th Floor of the Rembrandt Hotel Bangkok.

But most importantly, the restaurant features an Indian cuisine buffet, which when compared to the a-la-carte menu, is much more price friendly. Take a look at their menu and make your reservations here.

Other Menu Items

Listed below are a few of the food items that we tasted that day. Personally, I liked everything.

Papadum

Papadum

Free – Papadum, or Papad, an in-between meal snack. Crispy and salty, with a tinge of bitterness and spiciness.

Served with 3 types of sauces.
Mango, sweet and sour, salty
Mint, sour and salty, and refreshingly cool
Pickled vegetables, sweet and sour, salty, and spicy, leaves a tingling sensation on the taste buds.

Naan

Naan

110 baht – A large piece of thick chewy but soft dough. Goes very well with any type of curry. Absolutely delicious.

Tandoori Jheengha

990 baht – Fresh big tiger prawns, with a firm texture like just being brought in from the sea.

Salty, with a great mouth-watering aroma of Indian spices and from being freshly grilled. Very delicious.

Recommend to enjoy on its own without the need for any other complimentary dishes.

Mrugh “Dum” Biryani

550 baht – Baked Chicken Biryani in an Indian Clay Pot. The restaurant uses flour to seal the edge of the pot to help maximize the aroma.

The basmati rice and chicken were very tender, sweet and lightly salted, slightly spicy, and fragrant with spices. Especially the unique aroma of the saffron.

Recommend accompanying it with yogurt, which had a sour and greasy taste. Ensures a smoother taste.

Mrugh Tikka

Mrugh Tikka

520 baht – The chicken was very tender and was salted and spiced to perfection. Fragrant from being freshly grilled, charred, and spiced.

Gosht Beliram

Gosht Beliram

575 baht – Lamb curry. Spicy tender meat, absolutely satisfying. With a slight saltiness, greasiness, and rich in curry paste. No overwhelming lamb stench.

Goes very well with either naan or biryani. I like it very much.

Tikka Masala

Tikka Masala

490 baht – Tender chicken in thick curry paste. Sweet and creamy, with a milky aroma. Super creamy yogurt flavor.

Goes very well with naan or rice. Suitable for diners who’d like to learn about eating Indian cuisine.

Kulfi Falooda

Kulfi Falooda

250 baht – Typical Indian ice cream. Sweet, creamy, smooth, with a strong aroma of milk, pistachio, saffron, and possibly other spices. Adorned with ‘vark’ to make it look more luxurious.

FYI, vark are safe and edible pure silver sheets.

Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun

190 baht – Profusely sweet syrup, but the firm texture and milk’s creaminess of the balls helped to even out the taste.

For anyone who has ever tried Gulab Jamun from other Indian restaurants and feels that it is overwhelmingly sweet, we recommend that you try this out at the Rang Mahal Bangkok.
