Good service and atmosphere, but the meal was disappointing, especially for the price. One can find superior food on the street.

My husband and I had Gaeng Hang Lay and Penang curries - both were excellent, as well Tom Yum soup (the latter was properly spicy, strange to hear previous reviewers mentioning blandness of dishes). Cocktails are good, match food very well and reasonably priced. We thought that the service was excellent and the restaurant's ambience was pleasant. Would have definitely... More

It's always tricky to follow Trip Advisor reviews when it comes to restaurants. The highest rated restaurants are not always the ones you should go to if you are interested in a wonderful meal. This is a good example. It a tourist trap. The food is bland, which is unacceptable in a city where even a modest street stall serves... More

I first tried this place two years ago try to make a stop here whenever I'm in Bangkok. True to their motto, their food is awesome and the drinks amazing (great beer selection for SE Asia). Its definitely upmarket for Thai food but well worth the price. On this last visit I had the crab noodle curry, served with all... More

My mom and I had dinner here our last night in Bangkok. We had the beef noodle soup (Koh Suei?), which was incredible, the lamb massaman curry, whichi was ok, and two delicious cocktails (Soul Punch - very sweet - and Lo So Mojito). The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. I recommend making reservations. Overall, we were... More

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The staff was incredibly friendly & professional, the food even better! Favorite dishes included the roasted eggplant and spare ribs, but honestly loved everything we tasted. We decided to try a few of their delicious cocktails, but were impressed by the large assortment of craft beers from the USA, particularly our home... More

Really nice menu and service, good selection of foreign beers too. A bit pricier than other food outlets.

Delish meal. I wish there were more of us to order more. Many of the favorite Thai dishes with a spin. We had the crab curry with fresh veggies and noodles. I loved the peanut sauce that came with the tiger prawn satay. I'll be going back for sure to try more. The whole meal (without drinks) was reasonable. Place... More

We eat here a few times per month, always have to make a reservation no matter what day of the week. Our daughter loves the samosas and everything else is delicious too. Try their signature cocktail - the Soulpunch. It's Thai food with a twist. It's well worth the effort to make your way to Thonglor.

Neighbourhood Profile
Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While great for a night out, the area is nothing short of interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix of savvy coffee shops, pop-up bars and loads of vintage stores, brought to you by hip locals with eyes for design.
