Had a great dinner at this fun, trendy spot in Sukhumvit near SkyTrain stop at Thong Lo. Thai food with a contemporary twist - sea bass steamed in banana leaves, Thai "fried chicken", noodles with brisket - all very good. Good bar. The interior is modern and fairly western - it would easily fit in foody San Francisco or New... More

If you want to survive in Bangkok's thriving food industry then you must bring your A Game every day and keep it going as long as you're in business. I visited Soul Food for the first time in over a year and was surprised at the decline in the experience. It used to be a treat to eat at this... More

I was invited by a friend of me. It was my first time in this place. The place is nice and the food (we got many tapas) was great. The drinks menu is very good with a lot of wines an other options and the food is excelllent. Was good to go.

Ordered the chicken wings for starters and after a lengthy wait they came out under cooked and bloody inside, not a great start to our meal and not even an apology to us, maybe a drink on the house as a goodwill gesture would have been nice We ordered the krapow lamb and masaman (excuse spelling) which were very nice!...

With the proliferation of food blogs and the general trend to simpler food, there has been a departure, away from "royal" Thai food to home cooked, rustic, Thai and Soul Food is right on trend here. But apart from just being on trend, the food is also quite terrifically good. There wasn't a single dish, from the day's specials to... More

We visited Soul Food Mahanakorn on another friend's recommendation, and we were not disappointed - it was our favourite meal of the trip. One of our party was pescetarian, and we were pleased the there were lots of options for her to choose from. We ended up with two fish dishes which were delicious - the banana-leaf wrapped fish with... More

Excellent 2 floor Bar on Soi 55. Great place to start a Thong Lor bar crawl. Really nice atmosphere with a mixed crowd of all nationalities. The food isnt street food cheap of course but was absolutely beautiful!! Good cocktail and bourbon choice. A must stop place everytime we go BKK.

Eating Thai is difficult for someone with a fish allergy. Firstly you have to make sure that the wait staff know that you're serious which is not easy to do if you don't speak good Thai. At Soul Food the staff speak fabulous English and completely understood that the allergy was serious, and meant that food could not be marinated... More

We sat down to eat at 10:15pm on a Friday night having not booked. Lots of other places were already closed. The food was excellent - the beef gaenang curry esp - and the service was top notch. It's more expensive than some places (£5-8 per man course) but worth it if you want some delicious Thai food.

We found out about this place by lonely Planet. We weren't dissapointed! We forgot to book ahead of time and we were lucky that they had a table for 2 left. The staff were brilliant and the only thing better than the welcoming and decor was the food. Super yummy and worth a visit. You won't be disappointed! We left... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While great for a night out, the area is nothing short of interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix of savvy coffee shops, pop-up bars and loads of vintage stores, brought to you by hip locals with eyes for design.
