Try Thai Castle in Carmel at 126th and Rangeline. Above average.

Yes, Bubs is worth the trip from anywhere around Indianapolis especially on a day with nice weather. Muldoon's is down the street too and has a good pork tenderloin but not much else but a nice patio to eat on. The butcher and fish shop on Main is Joe's Butcher Shop and it is more than decent, it's wonderful. Their fish is very, very good, make sure you ask someone about special orders on fish. I got real steamer clams this summer at a good price, i had to rinse them as they were a touch sandy, but they were delicious. Mudbugs Cajun is there too. Good stuff, family owned and you can tell they care about the ingredients more than most do.

Muldoon's tenderloin is good if not a bit salty, the rest of their food is average to below average. It does not seem like they care about quality ingredients. Bub's is very good and while you have to have their burger, their Mahi sandwich steals the show. Bazbaux in Carmel now with their famous pizza. Charleston's is very consistant, and if you have kids (i have grandkids) clearly the best kids meal in town, $3.89 for a half pound burger, fries, and sundae...the sundae has a hot cookie on the bottom with vanilla ice cream and choc syrup and I eat what they don't. Thai Castle is new at 126th and Rangeline, it's not world class but much better than average. Mangia! at 116th and Rangeline is consistent and nice, I like to eat in the bar for lunch now and then. Being meatcrazy I wish for a good steakhouse. Ruth's Chris is great but expensive and not local, Glass Chimney is high end and fine. Don't recommend the new Bistro de Paris, but willing to give it a second try. Their service and food quality were suspect at best , how I wish it were different, we need something good up north. The Meridian is new in the old Dodds Townhouse and it's good. Really love Amalfi at Greenbriar/86th &Ditch for maybe the best Italian in indy. When it's all said in done though, your best bet in Carmel might be buying your own meat and cooking at home. There is a very good butcher shop on main street next to Muldoon's called Joe's Butcher Shop. I've had their meats and fish and both are excellent and the service has been good too if not a bit overkill.
