Pay-what-you-want restaurant

Despite the fact that there are a number of Indian restaurants here in Thailand, a lot of Thais are hesitant to try the cuisine due to the amount of spice

Indian restaurant, Kukkad Nukkad, is changing the game with their pay-what-you-want service that aims to invite Thais to relish the intricate flavours of Indian cookery.

Kukkad Nukkad, a restaurant’s whose name translates to ‘chicken corner’ from Punjabi, is a home restaurant located around Ratchaphruek. The establishment characterises their dishes as Indian food suited for Thai palates. Although located in a secluded area, the restaurant is fully booked through March.

Their King Size Thali, which comes at the customer’s own price, is the answer why.

To have a try at this special dining service, make a reservation through their Facebook page. Better contact them ASAP though, as Kukkad Nukkad only accepts four pay-what-you-choose tables a day – two at lunch and two at dinner. It is also possible, however, to drop by the restaurant just for an a la carte meal at affordable prices.

The Indian meal you don’t want to miss
