Always excellent Thai food. We have been going to Ban Chiang, easy walk from Silom Road, for more than 25 years. Still top!

Had a very nice evening at Ban Chiang restaurant a 5min walk from Lebua. Nice setting and very good food! Very big portions though that can easily be shared!

This is my first review below three stars. My friends and I went to Ban Chiang (which is near our hostel) for dinner after arriving in Bangkok from Hanoi. I ordered the Messeman curry (sorry about the spelling) and my friend ordered the fried chicken. My curry was good, the sauce was very tasty, but the chicken wasn't the best... More

This is the kind of restaurant people would always returned to, time after time, and for me, I have lost count of how many times since my first visit early 2000, the only thing I remember is the food is always honestly cooked, and happy each time. The restaurant is situated in the heart of center of Bangkok with the... More

My wife and I had a lovely, quiet lunch on New Year's Eve at this Bangkok hideaway. There is both indoor (A/C) and outdoor seating.

The food was excellent.... More

We got there a bit early. Easy to locate. Mostly foreigners on my date of visit. The atmosphere is cosy.

The shrimps in the Tom Yum soup were not fresh. Fried... More

This was recommended by the hotel concierge and it was a very good. We sat outside and in a very well setup area away from any main street so no traffic and people noise which was great. My wife is vegetarian and what was good was that menu even had a separate vegetarian option. They even managed to understand when... More

This place is bit of a search but it's worth it. The outdoor seating is nice but indoor is pretty cool as well. The dishes are great and good portions. Try the roast duck, I loved it!

Tucked behind a garden Ban Chiang serves absolutely fantastic sticky rice mango in a wonderfully laid back retro ambiance.
