Hemingway’s the Teak house housing the restaurant over 100 years old around 1910 alone is worth the visit. Easy to get to from across the street from the MRT & BTS station a 4 minute walks.

The Head Chef Kip Oxman is from the U.S. and the Manager Damian Mackay is from Australia. Great decoration of the restaurant with areas of rooms highlighted by Hemmingway’s travels. Spanish Garden, Key West Café, Marlin Boulevard, Habana Bar, Safari Sports Bar.
The drink menu is extensive; many of the Hemingway favorites in mixed drinks well worth exploring, as select brands not seen at many places even in Bangkok.

The food menu is interesting, I opted for the Ruben sandwich and the Cuban Midnight sandwich, and both unusual to find in Thailand had interesting sides of salad and relish. The Cuban meatballs were also an unusual find. I will look forward to trying many of the other creative Hemmingway’s favorites on future trips.

Located in Soi 14 just off the busy Sukhumvit shopping area and close to Asok BTS, it was surprisingly busy while still quiet bar and restaurant. The restaurant itself is located in a small and secluded courtyard.
The food was good and nicely presented.
The service excellent, with plenty of staff and we didn't have long to wait for meals and drinks.
There is an outside area which is shaded, and get's full pretty early evening, so we sat inside, which was fine. Cooler than sitting outside and serviced by cooling fans, which maintained a comfortable temperature.
Not at all expensive for Western food in Bangkok, and I'm sure to go back again.
Recommended.

Been there a few times. The place is great with a choice of seating areas: bar, terrace, inside restaurant or another upstairs terrace. Food is always good, tapas and pub food, prices reasonable and good service.

Thank Rob S

Slotted quietly 50m down the lane of Soi 14 directly underneath the Asoke BTS stop in the heart of Bangkok is a wonderful posh bar & restaurant of Hemingways. Soi 14 is almost a forgotten lane close to the Sheraton Grande Hotel and opposite Terminal 21. Clean & reasonable priced the bar offers a selection of snacks and full service meals inside aircon or outside under fans. It seats about 60 people ground floor and has an upper deck for another 40 people - perfect for group gathering or a private party. Beer on tap was unavailable the night I visited but at least the staff said that to each guest upon handing out the menu's - most unusual in Bangkok as you normally order something only to be told 10 min later its not available! WiFi is available but staff had to search around for the password. Despite its location close to the Asoke/Terminal 21 intersection its surprisingly quiet place with lots of greenery around to absorb the noise and usual Bangkok smells. Also a great family place absolutely clean and no "girlie bar" effects.

Sorry about the beer that night, we had an issue with the chiller that was fixed the next day. I took it out of service rather than serve warm beer. And I'm very happy to hear staff following direction and giving information the guests. We actually have over 300 physical seats located in 3 zone over 2 floors - It's an amazing old house and gardens. So glad to hear your like the venue and thank you very much helping spread the good word. Much appreciated.
