Indian Delight Restaurant Phnom Penh

Wednesday, December 18, 2013


(Update September 2015: This restaurant has been shut down by the owners). Looking for a decent Indian restaurant at the riverfront in Phnom Penh, I was delighted to have come across this aptly named Indian restaurant - The Indian Delight (Located at #115 Eo, Opposite Bopha Titanic, Preah Sisowath Street, Phone: 023-724 885). This restaurant has everything that one can expect from an Indian restaurant - vegetarian and non-vegetarian snacks, curries, tandoori food, Indian style sea food, traditional Indian drinks such as Lassi, Indian Set Meals (called Thali), Indian Tea (Chai), etc. In addition, The Indian Delight has a small Western Menu and a small Nepali Menu, and the not to be missed a rather huge bar menu of Wines, cocktails, whiskey, beer, fruit juices, milk shakes, soft drinks, and what not. The bar menu of this restaurant deserves a special mention because it is so comprehensive. House wines - Frontera Chardonnay and Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile can be had by the glass at 2.50 USD each. The menu has a long list of wines from South Africa, Australia, Italy, and France priced between 15 and 25 USD per bottle. Most beers and whiskeys cost between 1 USD & 2.50 USD and cocktails cost around 3.00 USD. Equally special is their Lassi menu (whisked and watered flavoured yoghurt) that has several flavours like banana and mango priced between 1 and 2 USD. Read about Indian Food menu below...

Indian Set Meals (Thali) are perhaps the best option for someone sampling Indian food for the first time or for someone who is a solo customer. Thali served at The Indian Delight comes in three variants - Vegetable (4.50 USD), Chicken (5.00 USD), and Mutton (7.00 USD). A vegetable Thali includes a vegetable curry, spinach curry, curried lentils, rice, Naan (Indian bread) and a dessert. Chicken and mutton Thali have everything from the vegetable Thali plus a chicken or mutton curry. Thali in this restaurant looks even better balue than what is served at Chi Cha Restaurant a few hundred yards away. Vegetable curries in The Indian Delight cost between 3.00 and 4.50 USD, chicken and mutton curries between 4.50 and 6.50 USD, sea food curries between 4.00 and 5.00 USD, and Indian breads (roti, naan, etc.) cost between 0.60 and 2.50 USD. Nepali style vegetable & meat curries, and snacks, etc. cost between 3.00 and 5.00 USD. The Mango Lassi that I tried (1.50 USD) was superb (see picture below). Kudos to the owners of The Indian Delight for providing a fine Indian food establishment at the most convenient location and charging such delightfully low prices.
