A tryst with the Orient

Benjarong, located in Ulsoor, offers authentic Thai dishes. The varied items here contain something for all — from simple dishes with local produce, piquant seasonings to authentic curries with the right balance of spices and flavours and delicious seafood. 

Known for its eclectic menu, the dishes comprise a range of soups, stir-fries and curries and some of the specials are soft shell crab, ‘goong tod samunpai’, ‘tom yum’ prawn soup and ‘pla rad prik’.

The restaurant is currently hosting the ‘Lanna Food Festival’. ‘The Ancient Tales of Lanna’, which means a million rice fields, is symbolic of the rich agricultural history of the Thai region and depicts the rain-fed rice fields.

The festival is indigenous to the Lanna kingdom and is characterised by its flavours and influences. The dishes are made using local ingredients and the menu for the festival comprises appetisers, soups, salads, main courses and desserts.

‘Aep goong’, ‘gai yang som tam’ and ‘som tam fa-rang’ are some of the specials along with traditional dishes like ‘kaeng hang lay’ and ‘goong normai farang pahd namprik noom’. 

Traditional desserts like ‘khanin delight’ and ‘khao niew lum yai’ and bubbly mocktails are also available. Benjarong is located at 12/1, Ulsoor Road and is open from 12 pm to 3 pm for lunch and 7 pm onwards for dinner. The festival is on till February 8.
