Indigo French Restaurant

A French Escapade in the middle of Silom

Open for more than a decade, Indigo is a French restaurant with a well established reputation for  great cooking, ranging from brasserie style to delicious home cooking. Serving well executed traditional recipes that will remind any French citizen of his homeland, Indigo undeniably shows its true roots. When it comes to fine dining, atmosphere, service and decor also play an important role and on all accounts, Indigo is faultless. With prompt, cordial and efficient service, going to Indigo feels a bit like going home.

Found on a discreet lane off Soi Convent street, this unexpected oasis of peace is a welcome escape from the heat and hectic buzz of Silom road. As the restaurant is in a colonial wooden house with a beautifully lit garden full of trees, your first mission is to decide if you prefer to dine al fresco or with air conditioning. On hot days it might preferable to move to the welcoming indoor dining room with its old fashioned bar, cosy lighting and traditional decor.

Both lunch and dinner menus offer an irresistible list of dishes usually found in French Brasseries and bistros, with a flavour of home cooking.

For lunch, Indigo is a good value if you feel like something a little more sophisticated than usual, also perfect for business with a menu at only 380 baht++. For that price you can pick one appetiser and one main course or one main course and one dessert. The portions are not too big, just right for a lunch and compared to other restaurants, the selection is quite large for a set. Everyone will find something to enjoy, including some Magret de canard au vin rouge, pan roasted sea bass with capers, salmon with raifort sauce, Sea scallops carpaccio with rocket salad or the typical French lunch 'hunger steak with caramelised shallots’, cooked to perfection. You can of course order anything from the dinner menu as well.

Dinner a la carte is more sophisticated and reservations are recommended. As a starter, people living in Bangkok often order some Fines de Claire oysters, a luxury not easily found in Thailand. Oysters are imported twice a week from the famous gastronomic market of Rungis near Paris, together with cheeses, cold cuts and all the irreplaceable ingredients without which French Cuisine would never taste authentic. The dinner menu is full of irresistible names, it would be so easy to get carried away and order more than common sense dictates… especially if you missed some really hard to find French specialties such as rabbit stew in white wine sauce or veal sweetbread in porcini mushroom cream sauce or for the true French connoisseur 'Steak tartare prepared at your table' (raw lean top round beef - 490 baht).

Indigo serves an excellent lamb chop with herbs and ratatouille (950 baht) and for the hungry couple, know that the ‘Cotes de boeuf pour deux’ (Bone prime rib for two 1,850 baht) is large enough to feed three people. You’ve been warned!  The chef at Indigo knows his meats and if you order it medium rare, you will get it medium rare.

Just as you can expect it from a French restaurant, the wine menu is very comprehensive with a long list of wines by the glass. Indigo is the perfect place for a tete a tete dinner or for a small group of friends who enjoy good food in a beautiful but casual setting. The restaurant can accommodate 150 guests, including a 50 seat room upstairs for special parties, but manages really well to keep the cosy atmosphere which is part of their success.
