*sigh* I can’t express how much I loved Natraj Indian Cuisine Restaurant! So as early as now, I think you guys already know what ratings I’ll be providing for them.

Natraj Indian Cuisine

During our 5-day stay in Ho Chi Minh, we’ve always eaten our dinner in Natraj Indian Cuisine Restaurant. For some reason, Indian food to me is comforting; the way the different spices merry each other and the colors each dishes has is definitely both eye and mouthgasmic.

(Apologies as some of the photos here are blurred. We were too excited to eat and they were rushing me to finish my photo op)

Natraj Indian Cuisine

Our generous spread. Very humble and simple dish yet rich in flavor! Of course, Vietnamese iced coffee is our default drink. And ordering naan is a must!

indian butter chicken
Our favorite, Indian Butter Chicken! Don’t confuse this with Chicken Tikka Masala (which is also our favorite) because their sauce is very much different from each other. Murgh Makhani or Butter Chicken’s sauce is made with pureed juicy tomatoes, spices cooked in butter, and is finished off with fresh cream.

chicken biryani

This one’s Chicken Biryani. It’s an Indian mixed rice dish made out of basmati rice, garam masala spice, and chicken – to name a few.

lamb korma

Finally, our Indian food adventure is not complete if we’re not getting Lamb Korma. It seems that this version is from North India since it has a pale yellow color which is from the saffron used.

As far as customer service goes, I would give them a 2-thumbs up! Our hotel is just across their restaurant and they’re very kind to deliver our food in our hotel room (they don’t normally do that).

Overall, I highly recommend that you visit Natraj Indian Cuisine Restaurant if you’re visiting HCMC. They have several locations throughout the city and the price range for each food item is very affordable.
