A hidden gem tucked in an alley in Thonglor! The chef is a culinary genius with amazing tasting menu! One of the best meals I have had in the world. Ther is an extensive menu, a great bar and staff. We look forward to each and every visit during our visits to Bangkok

We ordered a lot of starters and the fish as the main. It was creative and nicely presented. Taste-wise it was ok but we found that all dishes were quite greasy. Service was nice but we were a bit disapointed with the decoration/atmosphere. Overall it was a bit overpriced.

Surface restaurant was not an easy place to find since it's hidden behind parking lot on Soi Thong lor 11 in Sukhumvit 55. Key in "Surface" in google map will leaded you to the place. The place was transformed from the old house to the nice and cozy restaurant and offered both indoor with air conditioners and outdoor with fan.... More

The menu and the food are not bad but nothing crazy at the same time. Nothing justify the price anyway this is wayyyy to expensive for what it is. Too bad the place is kind unusual and fun. Portion are quite small as well overall with the multitude of restaurant in bangkok this one is quickly forgotten.

There are both indoor and outdoor seats. Not packed with customers. Enjoyable food but not top of the class. Friendly atmosphere that can be hanging out for late night with friends.

Decent place to go for some modern day food and drinks with some funky tunes. The DJ was spinning some cool tracks and getting into the music which gets the crowd going. Service was good. Food good but some serving sizes a bit small. The venue is a bit hard to find as tucked into the end of a street.

My husband and a work colleague tried Surface for the first time two weeks while traveling in Thailand. The staff and Resturant were only outdone by the fantastic food and cocktails. Food was unique and not something I have discovered in Bangkok in the eight years I have been travelling there. I travel to Bangkok every year and Surface will... More

Went on a Saturday afternoon -- venue did have quite a few tables that were busy. And the pizza we had was good. The brunch dishes were disappointing, however. Each egg dish looked like the other egg dishes (not very attractive) and the pancakes were just ho-hum. All at prices that were about the same as some competing venues that... More

I've been to Surface on numerous occasions and what draws me back is the laid-back atmosphere and some of the yummy dishes I keep going back for more. The tenderloin risotto is really good, as well as the spinach salad. Those are some of my favorites. Oh and their portobello burger. Also heard the lamb burger is really good, but... More

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.
