My husband and I feel like visiting "Basil", because we can not forget the taste of Yam Som O by Basil. We think this Yam Som O is number one! This time we invited our valuable guest there, and she liked it very much, too. When we order, we can tell the staff the degree of spicy. And if we... More

We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant, where my 2 dining companions and I picked one of the regional cuisines and shared the dishes. Fantastic food and service.

All of the dishes we ordered were excellent in taste and exemplary in presentation. Only exception would be the Mango and sticky rice, which should rather stay a street food dish. Service was friendly. Setting of the restaurant was pleasant. Rather expensive, however not over the top for the quality offered. Overall it was a great dinner.

From a very tiring day, I never thought I will be able to regain a spark. This creme brulee is a must try; perfectly crafted and designed; balanced and well placed coconut taste in a brulee.

Beautiful dinner, had soft shell crab and spicy tuna tartar for starter, wagyu beef red curry as main course and sticky rice with mango for desert. Attentive service, nice Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. Not cheap, but a great place for a Western couple to enjoy Thai cuisine.

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.
