Seoul is indeed a multicultural city, for the great delight of our taste pallet. There are many western restaurants all around Seoul from Itaewon to Hongdae. In this article, I will be sharing with you my favorite Indian food places in Seoul.
Agra is an Indian restaurant with various branches all around Seoul. It is sophisticated and offers some fusion food as well as authentic Indian dishes.
I personally like to have their Lunch set which consists of curry, rice, and Naan bread with a drink for the price of around 19,000KRW. They have various curry options, my favorite is the Butter chicken Murgh Makhani which is good if you want a start with Indian food tasting.
They also have fancier sets if you go to the one located in Jamsil’s Lotte mall.

My order: I decided to finally experiment with other types of curries so I took the vegetable one, my favorite the butter chicken, and the lamb vindaloo. They were all three rich in flavor and spices, I really enjoyed them. I am glad I gave it a try. The service is also very good in this place:
