We've been there for a dinner tasting menu experience and I have to say that is the best experience of a creative Thai restaurant we ever had. Maybe not a type of cuisine for everyone but definitely a MUST visit if you like the creative food. They play very well with a wide range of unusual Thai ingredients creating harmonious... More

lovely ambiance and a great variety in their set menu. First sample in chef's kitchen is a nice touch to the ambiance and friendliness of staff. The set menu was brand new and featured a variety of meat and fish dishes. The manager was very attentive. I have seen reviews regarding charge for the water. I agree it seems excessive... More

My fiancé and I made a reservation at Bo.Lan for our one night in Bangkok; we were not disappointed. The welcoming drink and snacks were light and fun, and the full tasting menu we chose was delicious. In fact, it was far more food than either of us could eat, but we enjoyed sampling everything. We also appreciated the brief... More

An excellent night. Considering short notice the degustation 7 course menu was awesome. Plus, a matching vegan degustation. Service could not be faulted. Every detail was attended to. From the first course with the Chef in the kitchen all the way through to the desert, including a vegan variety. Happy days all around.

This restaurant I tried as I saw the documentary of Andrew Zimmern while he was in BKK ( I hope I didn't mix this up now with Anthony Bourdain). And I have to admit it didn't disappoint at all. It is a very interesting menu and you should try all the dishes you wouldn't find elsewhere. The kitchen team does... More

Overall I think it was a very nice, unique experience but I definitely wasn't blown away. I guess what happens when places are so hyped-up is that expectations are perhaps unrealistically high. I thought the venue was nice, but certainly not that different from other restaurants situated in Thai houses. I'd say the food is good, if you're looking for... More

First you experience a very warm welcome from the owner in a very pleasant environment....then you are served a series of overall disappointing dishes with very little substance by unexperienced staff .....after that you end up being heavingly overcharged......we thought it a real scam.

I took my friend from oversea to experience Thai food in fine-dining style here and I really like how the restaurant invited us to have the first course in the kitchen, which I had never done in any fine-dining restaurant. The food was very good with high quality of ingredients. However, when comparing to the price I pay, I expected... More

Staying in Thong Lor & Ekamai

Neighborhood Profile
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.
