    Hey guys, can anyone recommend a restaurant in bangkok (not too expensive and with vegan/vegetarian options) that has an interesting or stylish interior?
    Café would be fine too


    thanks

    I always find the plain ones serve better food.

    If you want entertainment and good food try vietianne kitchen in sukhumvit. Good issan food and music. you can always order vego dishes.

    Hi Krabiman, we actually don't care so much about the food (we would only take a snack so we can stay there are bit), but really more about the interior design. We're really into that ;-)

    cabbages and condoms on sukhumvit soi 12 has a very interesting interior (i particularly like the outdoor courtyard section), a good selection of thai favorites including the veggie/vegan options you've mentioned, and is not too expensive. there is often live traditional thai music or some other cultural demonstration. definitely one of my BKK favorites and worth a look.

    " but really more about the interior design. We're really into that wink.gif"

    go to a temple then

    "cabbages and condoms on sukhumvit soi 12 "

    looks a nice place but full of farangs and pricey menu

    Crepes and Co was our favorite when we lived in Bangkok- a little place on Suckhumvit Soi 12, past Cabbages and Condoms. You should try roof top bars and restaurants too. On Soi Suchumvit 11 (Nana skytraine) my favourite, relatively inexpensive Nest bar (the food here is good too) http://www.bangkok.com/rooftop-bars.htm

    The sweetest thai restauraant in this - soi 11 again, ask anyone for Cheep Charlies bar ( an institution) follow the back street, past curry house, mexican , irish pub youll find small place made of wood. Enjoy))

    "why do always have to be such a jerk? "

    Thanks for the abuse but I was just being realistic.

    I offered up a suggestion too.

    "what's it to you?"

    I would ask the same question.

    The 5 star hotels have good restaurants with nice interior design. Not rocket science.

    Savory,

    I really liked the link you provided with the descriptions of restaurants in the lower Sukhumvit area. Some of those, like Bei Otto or Bourbon Street or Neil's Tavern have been around for ages. Those tend to be favorites for the expat set, but can be a great visit for folks who are just visiting the city too. That list went on and on. It underscores just what an amazing array of food venues Bangkok offers.

    Restaurants come and restaurants go. Two of my former favorites that don't seem to be around anymore were Bali on Soi Ruam Rudee and William Tell in the Sukhumvit early 20's. Both were small operations run out of former homes, and because of that had a lot of style and charm. Regards.

    For me I can't go past the Tapas Cafe. Fantastic traditional imported spanish hams tapas and great spanish wine. It's not cheap but after 3 or 4 weeks in S.E. Asia my wife and I absolutely love it. 1/25 Sukhumvit Soi 11, ph 02 651 2947
    cheers
