I was at the Clay Pit and wasn't all that impressed. Any recommendations?

I've lived in Austin since early August and have had a horrible time finding good Thai, Chinese or Indian food. I would LOVE suggestions as well!

For Thai I would suggest Madam Mams. I think there are multiple locations in Austin. My fiance swears its the best Thai he's had.

We aren't Indian food experts, but we like the Bombay Bistro (bombay-bistro.com). Our Indian friends like it, too. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing.

Hope that helps!

Chinese - din ho or asia market (183/spicewood springs), T&S seafood for dim sum

Indian Food - there are actually a lot because of the indian population, mostly north austin. Bombay Bistro, sarovar, madras pavilion and we go to star of india a lot,but it isnt that good

Thai - I agree that the thai food isnt that good. But I will periodically go to thai spice on 360 because they have an all you can eat springroll buffet. Most of the thai food ive eaten was in thailand and you just cant beat 75 cent street vendor pad thai. Ka prow has a really high rating on google, but I havent been there.

Default Best Indian food

Best Indian food in Austin-

Bombay Bistro- great buffet for lunch and dinner is pretty good too. Good service doesn't hurt either.

For all those vegetarians out there, Madras Pavillion is your best bet. Their veggie buffet is the best. No frills, yet not very cheap.

These two are always tops on my list.

Other recos:

- Chola's in Round rock
- Rangoli on I-35

But they don't come close to Bombay Bistro (Arboretum, right next to HEB) or Madras Pavillon (on Burnet and 183)

Swad is probably the best Indian. It is vegetarian.

Din Ho used to be the best but it's been uneven lately. Try Asia Cafe and the spicy cumin beef. Very authentic according to my former chinese employees.

Quality Thai isn't to be found in Austin. Thai Kitchen on William Cannon is ok.

Default Try Bombay Grill

Bombay Grill for Indian food near Westlake area. I've yet to find a good Thai restaurant in Austin.
