Mrs. Balbir's, Fine Indian Cuisine in Bangkok

When in Bangkok, you have to go to the right place when you are craving certain things.  When you're craving Japanese, go to Sukhumvit.  When you're craving Chinese, go to Yaowaraj.  When you're craving Pad Thai, go to Sanam Luang.  When you are thirsty, go to Thonglor.  When you're craving Indian food, go to Silom or Nana.  
Thus, this chapter landed us at the heart of Nana via the speedy and reliable sky train as we scrambled in search for East Indian perfection. Although Indian food isn't as popular or main stream among Thai locals, there are tons of authentic Indian restaurants in Bangkok metropolitan area and the competition is fierce. Mrs. Balbir's Fine Indian Cuisine is located at the beginning of Sukhumvit 11/1, not too far from Nana train station. The restaurant is spacious and elegantly decorated.  It looks new, clean, and, rich - marbled floor, chandeliers, a beautiful traditional wooden swing hung by chains as focal point. To my surprise, we were the only table the entire time.  Mind you, we did arrive way passed lunch rush on a weekday.
