Good Thai food, a little bit expensive, but I think it's worth the price. And if you are SPG member you may be able to get discount.

This is our last night in Thailand. 5 wonderful weeks of traveling around the country on motorcycles. Wanted a great meal for our last night here. Was not disappointed. The complimentary appetizer of betel leaves with toasted coconut, peanuts, onions, etc was wonderful. The sauce was amazing. Also ordered tiger prawns and the satay as well. Again, delicious.

This was near our hotel so we could walk, and we made reservations for early 6:00 pm dinner. Extremely good food, and decent wine selection, including Thai wines, though we played it safe with a French white wine. The soft shell crab appetizer on the prix fix menu is incredible. The duck breast was delicious, and the dessert at the... More

We had dinner at the Basil restaurant inside the Sharaton hotel. And it proved to be one of the best restaurant experiences we had in Bangkok. The decor and style are tasteful, the service is downright perfect and the food is very good. I can recommend this to anyone who seeks a stylish dinner.

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.
