Excellent service, friendly and great food!

Me and my Mom randomly picked this bar due to the 'free drink with your meal' advertisement, it stood out from the surrounding restaurants.

If you like the company of elder white gay men in a setting with loud pop music, mediocre food and very expensive beer then this is the place for you. Note how few local Thai men , gay or otherwise, hang out here these days.

Eaten here many times and never disappointed. The food is always good, the atmosphere is always buzzing. Definately worth a visit while in Bangkok.

Telephone Bar is probably the best known gay bar in BKK, but it is now tired (like most of the farang patrons and all the bar staff. Having said that it is still the place to go to people view and have a drink, but watch out for the money boys and those smoking strange substances. I rate it as... More

Ate our first dinner in Thailand here, and had a few drinks as well. The server was alright, but nothing special. The menu includes photographs of some of the food so you can pick out what you'd like without being too risky. We ate fairly early, and there were several other tables of westerners having dinner. Everybody was friendly and... More

Everyone talks to everyone,... More

A bar in need of a makeover like all those in the area...but staff are polite and cheerful...service is good and the beer is cold...Mel's are quite well prepared...and for the few dollars they cost,great clue...even suitable for straight purples to visit...not a flappy queenly scene...you can sit out front to enjoy the passing trade, but we prefer the dimmer...

Its a fun place if you are a member of the LGBT community or if you are a friend. Fun way to eat dinner outside on the sidewalk, with crowd watching and checking out who's new! A very welcoming place for LGBT.

A real happening place for many years and good crowds in the middle of the famous Simon area. We always have a food time there and the prices are very reasonable and they have good happy hours. We going there for years and we will be back.
