I have finally got around to writing a review about this place. For the most part I can only echo what others have said, its a truly wonderful place. I know Bangkok well, have lived there and been coming back for more than 25 years so I have seen a lot of changes because over this period the city has changed so fast. This place is totally off the tourist trail and for me that is part of its appeal, the Skytrain is 5 minutes walk away so you can hit anywhere in town so easily. You know its nice to walk out of your place into a quiet street and not have to face the Bangkok bustle of tourist vendors in your face every minute. And the benefits from that are also you can get to eat real Thai food at local prices, turn left on the main road ,walk for 3 minutes and you'll hit a restaurant called Sa Wat Dee, you'll probably be the only Westerners there, you won't regret it, this is Thai food cooked for Thai's, and no that doesn't mean it has to be spicy but if you really don't like anything hot just tell them "mai pet" (not spicy). My wife is Thai and she rates the Tom Yum soup as about as good as it gets, Good music there too from live bands. There are so many good restaurants buried in the side streets around here, this thread can start you off:
By the way, if you want lunch, once again turn left on the main road and walk up towards Saphan Kwai Skytrain stationj, the side-streets to your left will be thronged with office workers eating some excellent street food, give it a try. The vendors won't have any English...this is non tourist country ! Just point and you'll make out. Believe me, if you want to be in Bangkok and not part of the crowd then head to Bangkok Patio..
By the way, if I haven't spend so much time talking about Bangkok Patio itself its simply that there was nothing I could add to what others have said, the place and the people are just simply lovely !!
Really can't reccomend Bangko Patio high enough...up to you what you are seeking ...a tourist ghetto like Sukhumvit or a slice of Thai life.
