I was there with my girlfriend and hit this palce by chance as we stayed in a hotel nearby. we dropped in for the live music and the nice garden setting , which makes you feel comfortable and let you flee from the noisy Sukkumvit close to the Bar. All over a recomandation for some drinks anyway. We did not... More

Zanzibar has great outdoor seating...romantic...but the house band needs to work on their set. The male singer tries to sound like the singer from the cover songs and, frankly, it's extremely annoying and the sax player is not playing in the correct key, which is embarrassing for them and an ear wrecking experience for me. The group I was with... More

Passed this place numerous times over the years, so New Years eve, thought we will give it a try. Music sounded ok from the street but once seated inside it was far too loud. I would say at shouting level at our table which prevents having proper conversation. The ambiance of Zanzibar is quite pleasant but the food dished up... More

Staff was super friendly, even offered me some mosquito repellent. The whole feel of the restaurant is very nature-inspired. Music is awesome they're playing deep house. Food is basic but i only had smoked salmon and cream cheese with tea, so I dont really have much basis for a food review.

Excellent food, although a little on the expensive side for Sukhumvit, music was perfect - a Philippines band who just kept singing, a great night out

A good street side restaurant with a varied menu even if a little lacking in Thai cuisine. Service was attentive and efficient. Food was all OK

I stayed in a different hotel this time in Bangkok and after working in my hotel room, I decided for a short break and a little food. This outdoor/indoor venue is across from the hotel, so I popped in to check it out. Service is excellent, efficient but laid back, not sure how the staff seem so relaxed and yet... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
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.
