Eating on sukhumvit

Thinking on staying at the park plaza on our next trip to Thailand and wanted some info on some good places to eat. Have eaten at cabbages and condoms before but wanted some other recommendations. Any help would be great.

I've tried Crepes & Co, 50m next Cabbages and Condoms; good crepes and restful atmosphere.

Govinda for italian vegetarian food.

Harmonique for thai food. Old atmosphere, hard to describe.

Mrs's Balbir, good indian food.

Siam Paragon Mall: at the basement there is a food court and many restaurants.

Hi ausiam

Cabbages & Condons?! Erk! Tell me, what did they serve? Not their namesake in a nice Thai sauce over rice I hope.

oops ausiam, Harmonique is not on Sukhumvit but by the river sorry. But still worth a visit IMO :p

For cheap thai food I went often to the small food court at Sukhumivt soi 7. It gathers a few stall but you'll find seafoods and thai foods. Not a romantic place but just for eating.

For quality Thai food at reasonable prices, the open air seafood court in Suk Soi 7 is very good, not just for seafood.

For a good choice of classic Thai street dishes, try the night market in Suk Soi 38.

Thonglor (aka Suk Soi 55) has all manner of eateries and food stands. Just start walking up the street from the BTS station and take your pick.

For sit-down dining, Thon Krueng on the corner of Thonglor Soi 13 offers all the Thai classics with flair and excellent quality (and not dumbed-down like Cabbages and Condoms). http://www.thonkrueng.com/wp/ To get up and down Thonglor, jump on the little red bus for 6 baht.

Generally, all over town, the S&P chain offers good Thai (and some western) food at reasonable prices in - usually - a mall atmosphere. The one on Suk Soi 26 (far down toward Rama IV, you'd need a taxi) even has live music in the evenings. The one in the top floor of Amarin Plaza next to BTS Station Chitlom is quite convenient if you've been shopping in the malls. There's also a good one at the top of Thonglor, and one right on the river with romantic nighttime views on Tha Maharaj pier.

Also at Chitlom, in the Pranunee building and visible from the Skywalk, is the renowned Amarin Food House, offering all the Thai and Chinese standards in excellent quality. They also have dim sum from 10:00 to 15:00. cheapeatsbangkok.com/html_eat/…amarin.html

We ate at P Kitchen on Suk soi 18 and also at a restaurant just over trhe Road from the Rembrandt called Tree ?? (sorry can't remember the rest of the name)Thai food in both of these places was fab and not too 'toned down' to meet European Palates. Thoroughly reccommend the Papaya Salad at P Kitchen.

I assume you meant restaurants and not street food...

Thong Lor is the trendy area of Bangkok right now with a lot of cafes and hangouts. Thong Lor is an area of Sukhumvit soi 55 and its sub-sois. It includes the beginning of sois 36 and 38 near the BTS station.

To get up Thonglor from the BTS station, grab the little 6 baht red bus which will be waiting as you walk onto Thonglor. Just get on and pay the 6 baht to the boy or girl when he or she comes around. Very informal. Just ring the button to get off.

*There's an excellent and not very expensive Thai seafood restaurant called Thon Krueng on soi 13 off of Suk soi 55. The address is 539 Thong Lor soi 13. Has even gained a reputation among locals who appreciate its delicious and inexpensive seafood displayed on ice outside. Cozy outdoor terrace, too. This place is in magazines.

Another choice on Thonglor is Buay Phochana between sois 12 and 14 which specializes in Chinese duck.

Further up soi 55, almost to the canal on the left hand side, at a corner is a fabulous Thai fish restaurant.

*On the other, south side of Suk, you've got soi 36. About 5-10 minutes walk down that soi there's Vientiane Kitchen, which is the premier venue in town for Lao and northeast Thai cuisine.

Just up from the intersection of Suk and Thong Lor, left hand side as you face north, there's a hole-in-the-wall eatery that has some of the best Thai omelet’s with seafood.
