Not too far from the Mandarin Oriental and its shopping complex, we found this little restaurant in a small street. The food was amazing (good portions, very tasty), and the decoration of the place is very nice, too. The ambience is relaxed. The service was...More

Chose this purely on location to our hotel and previous reviews. Lived up very well. Small and with a typically bygone ambience. The menu is very extensive. Very hard to choose just a few things and you could easily eat here for days and not...More

Happily we found this restaurant; excellent food and excellent charm with staff. A paradise with jazz music and plenty of things to look on, both pictures from old Bangkok and lots of old traditional things. Here we also find out that they have a cooking...More

I daresay one can find better value if one has time to search, but for its area (adjacent to super expensive hotels), Tongue Thai is quite reasonable (food only; did not try the infamous beer). We ate early, were the only party in the restaurant,...More

We ate here twice during our stay in Bangkok and the food on both occasions was excellent. It is located in a tucked way location near the Oriental hotel. The restaurant was very quiet, but I assume this was due to it being the low...More

Returning yet again, we were not disappointed with our chosen meals and service. As requested, the dishes were served “Thai spicy” and very tasty. Since our last visit in November 2011, the restaurant has now started to run a Thai cooking school upstairs at the...More

We (4 adults and 1 three year old) were looking for something close to our hotel and went to Tongue Thai after reading the comments on Tripadvisor. The waiter was a real darling, very kind and patiently explaining the dishes. We went for banana flower...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop
