Along Bukbu Beach in Pohang, South Korea, there are tons of things to see and eat. On a Sunday, we wanted to go grab some Indian food, but Namaskar was closed, so we headed to Sweet India. They don’t serve authentic Indian food, but more of a Korean fusion.
The restaurant has multiple floors and we dined on the second floor.
When you take a look at the menu, you know they are missing a lot of staple Indian food. I was looking for paneer and pakoras, but it was nowhere to be found. If you are looking for more authentic Indian food, definitely check out Namaskar in Pohang.
Complimentary Picked vegetables
Garlic Naan (2,500 won) comes with a huge piece and it looks like its more of a garlic oil on top rather than bits of garlic. Its still good, but it is quite oily when you rip into it.
Original Naan (2,000 won) was large as well. I preferred this over the garlic naan.
Lamb Curry (12,000 won) had a few chunks of lamb and tasted alright.
Mixed Vegetable Curry (8,500 won) was quite good but the size of the order was small.
Tandoori Chicken (18,000 won) has 4 pieces of chicken legs. The chicken was dry and it wasn’t anything special.
Chicken Tikka (12,000 won) comes with 7 pieces and it is spicy.
Bacon Cream Risotto (8,500 won) was my favourite dish of the evening. It was creamy and super cheesy. Good type of comfort food.
Seafood Tomato Spaghetti (8,500 won) was quite mediocre and some of the seafood could have been fresher.
The food here really doesn’t compare to authentic Indian food and is very mediocre. I probably wouldn’t come here again. The service was quite poor and the waitresses were not attentive at all. People wanted to get refills of water, order or get the bill but we would have to wait a while for a waitress to appear. The servers were mostly behind the counter on their phones. Not cool at all.
