A chilled out escape from the party scene

What we say: 4 stars

Tucked off a sub-soi of lively (or raucous when it gets late) Sukhumvit Soi 11, Suk 11 restaurant is a low-key place to lounge with a few drinks, free WiFi and some excellent eats.

Unlike many tourist-oriented restaurants, Suk 11 prepares a range of authentic Thai food that isn't watered down for Western tastes. Graze on small plates like northern Thai-style sausage, pomelo salad or fried chicken wrapped in pandan leaves, or order a filling curry, stir-fry or noodle dish off the restaurant's well put together menu that explains a thing or two about Thai food and provides transliterations of each dish's Thai name.

While not cheap (expect to pay between 120 and 250 for most dishes), the restaurant's food will probably have you coming back for more, and the open-air atmosphere with traditional Thai floor pillows, Tibetan prayer flags and the softly pumping sounds of Radiohead and Thievery Corporation seal the deal.

Suk 11 also offers a hostel that's popular with the earthy-crunchy backpacker set.

If coming by BTS use Nana exit #3.
