No Idea (what a silly name) is my favorite haunt for lunch in Bangkok. Billed as a "gastro pub" (another silly name - to me "gastro" means you have the runs), So where does this place fit as Bangkok is full of western restaurants?. At the lower end you have your typical British 'stodge" food joints which serve up the... More

We were personally welcomed by the owner, the staff and service were first class, and the cost was reasonable for the standard of the food served. My wife had a started of squid, which it must be said she found a little tough, I had lamb... More

Neither a restaurant, nor a pub. A confusing place. Nicely decorated place, but average food and service.Neither a restaurant nor a pub.

The place was well done out, which provided a nice ambience, however, the food for the price was very disappointing. I had the special at the time, which was duck on a bed of mashed potato, and the only thing which was nice was the sauce. The duck was as tough as the skin of an elephant, and the mashed... More

Was in town for a few meetings and decided to take the wife for a quick snack. We had 2 types of oysters. For the life of me i can't remember the larger ones but the smaller ones were Puget sound. Both kinds were amazing. Wait staff was really nice and very honestly friendly. We also had a plate of... More

Excellent food, attentive staff & welcoming owners. We stumbled across No Idea one night Bangkok, and it was by far the best restaurant we ate in.

We came here as a large group and let them know we were coming in advance so they could be prepared. The order was cocked up royally and my food never arrived despite the manager insisted it was sent up and intimating that i might have already ate the food to try and not pay.

Thank you for your review. Indeed, we were advised that 20 people would be coming on a Friday night and you would order snacks off the all day bar menu. 35 people turned up at 7.30pm. You ordered drinks and entrees. Guests then ordered from the main menu including dishes such as Harissa Chicken, Rib-Eye steaks, Pork Belly etc, all... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
