“My Go-To Spot For a Casual Bite in Bangkok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I never pass up the opportunity to hit the food court in MBK whenever I'm in Bangkok. The one on the 5th floor (called Fifth Avenue) is the best option here by far.

Tons of culinary options, clean environment, quick service, easy pay method (via card that they provide you upon entry).

This time around, I had the Shrimp in Green Curry (warning: spicy!) and the Prawn with Fried Rice (ok - from a different booth).

In my opinion, I think the quality of food is slightly better at Terminal 21 but MBK is better located.

“Good food and a place to rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Loved the easiness of this place. Grab a card on entry and hand it over for what you want to eat then pay on the pay out. The total of your food is on the card. Nice clean toilets and a great choice of food.

“Very expensive food that doesn't live up to the price.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My fiance and I stumbled into this foodie floor of MBK as hunger set in on out 8 hour shopping stop in Bangkok. Much has been said in previous reviews. Credit card style payment is a pain, the speed of food arriving was poor and the quality was OK. However, if you want choice this is great - there's everything from noodles to chicken to fish and chips.


BUT>>>> the prices were very expensive for Bangkok. My view is that the basement food hall in the Siam centre (literally across the road) is much better and cheaper.

“There are better place than this”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Personally, I think this place is a bit overpriced. There are better alternatives within MBK. If you don't mind walking, Siam Discovery and Siam Center is better alternative.

“Huge food variety with great taste and pricing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Nice little corner located at the 5th floor of MBK shopping center, if my memory do not fail me. Works like Marche where you collect card at the entrance and all your purchase are charged to the card and payment are maed before you exist the restaurant.

Good variety of choice, for Tom Yum Soup, to pasta and pizza, fried rice and noodle soup but all at good and affordable pricing. Great place to rest your feet and fill up your tummy after some tiring shopping and bargaining.
