We went to another restaurant but couldn't get in so went here instead. Unfortunately it was very late at night and he was just closing up, but gave us a great recommendation for another restaurant to try. Gutted we missed your food! But next time we are in Bangkok we will definitely be visiting!

I stumbled upon Chef Bar and have to say that it is just great all around. If you're craving an amazing burger or meat pie, don't walk, sprint there. Roland takes great pride in his food, and it really shows.

After reading about Chef bar since it rocketed to noteriety.. I finally made the journey and was so pleased I did. What Chef Roland has achieved with such a small intimate space is worthy of the great feedback other reviewers have shared. I only intended to sample a small number of dishes but stayed for about 2 hours. During that... More

Really awesome burgers. The burgers and fries are prepared in-house and upon ordering. So sit, relax, and enjoy.

Never fails to deliver. I should go more often! This remains the best burger in BKK and although it might be slightly on the pricey side it's great quality ingredients and very generous size more than compensate.

This was our 5th visit. We always try & fit a night out in chef bar when we visit bkk. After eating Thai food (which we love) during most of our stay, it's such a nice change to come to chef bar for an truly good meat fest. The quality of the meat used here is superb. Everything is cooked... More

A small quaint joint for one of the juiciest burgers in town. Everything is made from scratch, including the ketchup! Care and attention to the freshest ingredients is what makes this a true gem amidst all the restaurants that sources processed meat.

Not the best hamburger and very expensive for what you get. The place is very small and not relevant for more than two people

We first tried this place a couple of years ago. We finally returned to Bangkok this year and made a point of coming to Chef Bar at least twice during our month in Thailand (back and forth from Bangkok a couple times). We were not disappointed. There were some new specials to be had, and I was almost tempted to... More

I do not think that I will ever be able to eat another hamburger without comparing it to this one at Chef Bar. Tucked off a busy road, this small, wonderful place and its owner/head chef Roland, will transport you to another universe. The Waygu beef and goat cheese, atop a phenomenal bun, accompanied by truly wonderful chips and local... 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.
