The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

a good introduction to the locally available foods
Dec 2019
A nice manageable size food market. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if you're staying on this side of town it makes a good introduction to the locally available foods.

Everything we had was high quality and the atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming.

This area we discovered on our way from the airport. Staying in the Sukhumvit area you are surrounded by opulent hotels and shopping malls and it all feels very grand. However this area is in complete contrast. The area of food stalls was very busy Friday early evening with many local people enjoying the food in offer. Prices looked very cheap too!

A ghost of its former self

Was here about five years ago. There used to be dozens of street food venues on this street. New condo development pushed them out. Now there are about seven under cover. Don’t bother with this market. There are more food vendors on places like Soi 11.

Couldn't get a thing
Dec 2019
On the basis of so many reviews we decided to give this place a try. Even though we went there quite early on a weeknight, the place was already filled up. There were lots of tourists and no one seemed to be in a hurry to leave. We were expecting a larger selection but there were only about a dozen stalls when we visited.

After waiting around for a bit we decided to leave as the kids were hungry.

Based on our experience I couldn't honestly recommend this place. It felt like a locale past its prime and there are better options than this around.

The small and cramped carpark space does not do the vendors justice.

Just go there!!!!!!
Dec 2019 • Family
Family staying near Asok BTS. Caught BTS to Thong Lo (2 stops away) and at first thought nothing there at the bottom of the station. Then found the entrance and our food extravagant began. Really friendly food sellers and location. Find a table , go around choosing what you want and within 5 minutes you are eating some of the best food you will find. Forget any negative reviews from locals etc and so called food experts. Just go eat and be happy. Four of us with return BTS drinks starters mains and desserts all for £26!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sitting in Soi 38 Sukhumvit, exploring the street food. There use to be a street full of vendors, but the Government kicked them off the street, now there is 13 or 14 undercover in a hotel carpark, all have something special.
First up for me was a wonton soup with BBQ pork and crab meat, went down extremely quickly, 8 out 10. Now I having Pad Thai with shrimp, recommended by the woman as her fave, it just arrived, to be updated 😊 Pad Thai with shrimp, bean sprouts, tofu, green mango, shrimp, lime, noodles and some green veg that looks like spring onion but not. Loved it, different to any Pad Thai I've had before 8/10
A very cold long neck of Singha is 100 baht or A$5.

You have to try something local and here it is
Oct 2019
It is a real Bangkok experience apart from Or Tor Kor market.
It was a street of food previously. However, Thai government cut the street food so the hawkers get together and continue to work in a building's car park.
Same variety, same taste, must try

Small but some variety
Oct 2019 • Solo
This is a small food-only night market. There were about a dozen food sellers offering a bit of variety. Prices were average, but portions small. Had no problem getting a table, and the food was prepared quickly. It could be a bit tricky to find, as it's tucked into an alley - be sure to exit BTS on the south side of Sukhumvit and look for Soi 38. Good place for a rainy night, as the entire market is under a roof.

We went here for dinner when we arrived in Bamgkok. I was expecting more food stalls but there were just a few. Food was good and cheap.
