Eat and meet

Sathorn Road

While Sathorn is certainly a major Bangkok thoroughfare, it's hardly on the tourist radar for most. Nevertheless there are a number of bars and restaurants though many will stretch the average travellers budget.

    4.5 stars

    Fantastic food

    The Metropolitan Hotel, 27 Sathon Tai Rd
    T: (02) 625 3333

    David Thompson is the saviour of Thai cuisine/destroying Thai cuisine. It all depends on who you are talking to. Traditionalists argue that non-Thais could never understand enough about Thailand to be an excellent Thai cook, while modernists consider that since Thai chefs have been able to master ... read more

    Vegetarian food on Pan Road
    4 stars

    Dig in, it's delicious

    Pan Road, Bangkok

    Fronted by the awe-inspiring Sri Maha Mariamman Hindu temple off Silom Road, Pan Road is a bastion of vegetarianism.

    4 stars

    A brewery only as Thailand could imagine it

    462/61 Rama 3 Rd
    T: (02) 678 1114 ‎

    Tawandang is a brewery only as Thailand could imagine it. Bit copper pots? Check. Towers of beer? Check. Beer drinking contests on stage? You know it. Thai pop acts? At jet-engine volume. It's actually really fun. The beer is pretty good too- if you've just arrived in Asia you probably aren't ... read more

    Bangkok's best dive

    27/3 Soi Sribamphen, Rama 4 Rd
    T: (081) 901 0235

    Wong’s Place is a dive. It's small, its interior could only be described as eclectic-lazy and half of the time you have to get your own beer out of the coolers and open it before paying. But it's one of the best dive bars in all of Southeast Asia. ... read more
