Great bite

Popped into the Chef Bar this evening after reading a few reviews on this site. I had a triple Angus beef-burger and a few fries. Very tasty, this is not just your ordinary burger joint, a selection of appetising burgers and pies and a good selection of beers/wines to suit most people. All served... read more

Aussi Chef-patron runs a tight ship. He has to because quality eateries don't come more compact than this center of burgher & beer excellence. Just 3 tiny tables but enormous pride and skill in the open-plan kitchen. Most people aren't aware that the humble burger can achieve this level of quality and sophistication. Quality fresh raw ingredients. Pricey but worth... More

This place is the true definition of a hidden gem. The quality can't be beaten anywhere and the hospitality shown by the owner/chef is unmatched. Astonishing how he can do so much and still make the visitation a personal experience. The ingredients are all home prepared and there is also a wide variety of beers. I can honestly say I... More

Our family comes here very often and we all love it! From their burgers to their meat pies and their wine and beer selections. The owner / chef is friendly and the place is cozy. My personal favorite is the waygu burger with a mushrooms cheese - definitely the best burger in the city.

I have been two times now at the Chef bar. The menu itself is not very big but there are recommendations every day and the different beef burgers are simply great. The meat is coming from a local butchery that imports meat from Australia. The tassie burger, wagyu burger or trio burger are simply excellent. The are coming with home... More

I discovered this place last year on a trip to BKK and enjoyed the, for my taste, excellent burgers. Came back several times and again the food pleased me very much, also "the chef" takes hist time for a short chat when the place is not too much crowded. I noticed this time that the whole place has been renovated.... More

Chef Roland, a genial Aussi, is stickler for attention to detail at this tiny hole-in-the-wall eatery between Sukhumvit's Soi 21 (Asoke) and Soi 23. His input and ethos combine to serve his devoted customers, well heeled Thais and expats alike, what must surely be the best, most imaginative burgers in town or, for that matter, anywhere else on planet earth....

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighborhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
