This is the best. We ordered 7 dishes and all 7 got the thumbs up frm all 4 guests! A bit out of the place as it is not located near any shopping mall. But the travel was worth it, definitely! Service was good and...More

If you are looking to have good SOMTUM (papaya salad) look no further as this is the best place to go. But, please go early as the traffic jam is massive if coming from town area such as Kempinski Bangkok.

We had asked our hotel concierge ( Eastin Grand Hotel) for a recommendation for dinner nearby and were told there were quite a few restaurants in the area. There being no specific one named we decided to walk around and see what was available. We...More

Modern Thai with many locals. Predominantly a menu of various salads. Very different from traditional restaurant with ladies using mortar and pestle to combine dressings for salads at the front counter in front of customers. We stayed away from salad being careful with what we...More

A good place to eat but did not find anything that special. Staffs were nice but could not speak English.

The best somtum I have ever eaten. The higher-than-average prices are justified by the clean and welcoming environment and authentic flavours. Chewing on some mint provided on the side is a good way to relieve the heat!

This busy place sells just about everything you see in roadside stalls, and then some. It gets very crowded with local office workers at lunch time, but we've never waited more than 10 minutes or so for a table. Very little English spoken, but the...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
