Authentic thai food, original taste in small street next to “The Commons”. Even if it doesn’t look after a typical local restaurant - a great place to come. Try Salt fried chicken with lemongrass👍

We have been to Khao Jao many times and it never ever disappoints. This is not the normal place you would expect in Thong Lor; it is family run, incredible value and you can bring your own booze with no corkage charge - although I...More

Can't complain. This place offers good food for a super reasonable price in the middle of Thong Lor. Common Thai food, yeah, but tasty with a beer in your hand.

The dishes we got here were very good indeed. It's off the main road so you can sit inside or outside with some relative peace and quiet and the staff were happy to respond to any requests. Going back tonight!

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
