Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Two friends, one American and one Thai decided that Bangkok needed real bagels. Not more donuts or rolls, but New York style bagels. A bagel that with every bite you get that New York chew we all love and search for while abroad. After a few months, the dream of bringing bagels to Bangkok came true. BKK Bagels are hand rolled, boiled and baked to perfection. The bagels are paired with uniquely flavored, handmade "schmears." Also available are deli-inspired, gourmet sandwiches made with bagels or fresh home made bread and deli meats that are cured and smoked in house.

“The closest you'll get to a NY bagel”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Do you know and miss the familiarity of fresh, authentic NY bagels? The BKK Bagel Bakery is the closest in Bangkok you will get to the real thing. While not the perfect bagel, what's on offer is good enough to satisfy an occasional craving. I've been going to BKK Bagel Bakery since it opened a couple years back and have noticed the volume of contents in the sandwiches has gotten proressively smaller so don't expect the traditional stacked NY sandwich you may be accustomed to. Overall the quality is good, delivery is prompt and food is tasty. Note you should be prepared to spend the equivalent of NY prices.

“Best in town for bagels”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

No one, arguably, outside of NYC makes a perfect bagel and one should hold low expectations of finding a New York bagel in Asia. BKK Bagel Bakery presents a suitable facsimile. This is not a chain and some deli items are in limited supply. It can be understaffed when it's busy so do not expect to be in and out the door in a few minutes if rushed for time. Several of the staff are fluent English speakers.

“Used to be a great bagel...”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

Went to have one of their lox bagels which used to be great, sadly it's changed. The topping didn't feel as fresh and a sloppy presentation, however what really was the turnoff was the staff. Two in all manners unhygienic persons taking care of my food was rather unpleasant, if I wouldn't be that hungry I would have left without eating it. On top of this they pan fried bacon I assume, in the room to the extent that my suit ended up smelling like fried pork for the rest of my days meetings. Not great.

“comfort food”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

this is about as close to nyc bagels as you are gonna get in bangkok. they offer a variety of bagels and cream cheeses as well as bagel sandwiches. will others rave about their lox bagel my go to is the everything bagel with dill and garlic cream cheese with an iced latte - perfect every time. maybe a little pricey but it's worth it, and i've tried the other bagel places...nothing compares to bkk bagel bakery. bts stop: chit lom. and the service has always been really good!
