What we say: 3.5 stars

Just off Ari BTS station, Soi Ari is an excellent place to give Thai street food a shot.

Here you'll find a more relaxed setting than Chinatown or Silom.

Although tasty eats are found throughout the street, a stretch between sois 1 and 2 sees a tightly packed group of vendors hawking fresh fruit, fresh-squeezed tangerine juice, curries for take away and colourful trays of finger foods stretching into the horizon. Vendors can be found from early morning until late at night and the som tam, grilled chicken and roti vendors emerge at dusk.

Although great food can be scored here all week long, the area is especially happening on Saturdays and Sundays when Chatuchak market is in full swing just two stops further up the sky train track.

Apart from the street food, Ari has a burgeoning restaurant scene so if chairs, tables and air-con are your thing, you'll find those here too.

To get here, take exit 3 out of Ari station, walk straight towards Phahonyothin soi 7 and turn left.
