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.

  • Khao Mok Gai Convent
    4 stars

    Excellent khao mok gai

    Soi Convent (in front of Bua Restaurant), Bangkok

    Muslim-Thai biryani rice with chicken, or khao mok gai, is a fairly common street dish that’s especially popular in Southern Thailand. One of the finest versions we’ve come across in Bangkok is served by one of the many street carts found on food-heavy Soi Convent, just off Silom and around the ... 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. Chennai Kitchen and A-Ma Kitchen are two of our favourite no-frills eateries serving strictly meat-free southern Indian and Chinese-Thai fare, but poke around and you’ll find a lot ... read more

  • Baan Bai Plu (BP Vegetarian Restaurant)
    4 stars

    Completely satisfying

    Soi Suan Plu 8, Sathorn Rd
    T: (080) 080 7255

    Real vegetarian food in Bangkok can be hard to find. Lurking behind every plate of Chinese kale or mound of vegetable fried rice are vegetarian-eating’s ninja assassins: fish sauce and oyster sauce (and sometimes, inexplicably in a “vegetarian” dish, fried slices of pork belly), which makes ... read more

  • Wong's Place
    4 stars

    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

    Baan Somtum on Soi Si Wiang in Sathorn produces 22 varieties of som tam along with a host of other Isaan soups and salads in a modern atmosphere.

  • Tawandang German Brewery
    3.5 stars

    A brewery only as Thailand could imagine it

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

    Despite the drunken-backpacker Khao San Road cliche, real beer can be hard to find in Bangkok. There are a few places worth checking out, including House of Beers and BeerVault, but brewpubs aren’t common. Enter one of our favourite beginnings to an evening: Tawandang German Brewery. ... read more
