“Delicious Thai food at very low prices!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Me and my bf were staying at Lebua state tower hotel and decided that we needed to try some authentic thai food preferably at a cheap price as we had blown at lot of our money in Lebua's Mezzaluna restaurant the night before!

We found that East meets West was very near where we were staying so we headed on down. It was only about a 5 mins walk, but it could be easily missed as it's down a side street/square (which I'm assuming at some point was or is going to be a busy area - there's an unused water fountain at the front)

We got there around 8pm on a saturday and were very surprised to see the place empty. It is also quite a small restaurant (I was expecting an upstairs, but it's just a few tables inside and a few outside), but we sat down inside regardless and the service was very good.

The people who served us were very friendly and understanding and went out of their way to make sure they got the food right. I have a weird food requirement where I don't eat vegetables, but wanted to try the Pad Thai, and they accommodated me, no problem!

The food came out quickly and was very tasty and authentic, we would've happily gone back again if we stayed in Bangkok longer. Me and my bf both agreed that it was the best Thai food we had on our whole trip, and the best part was that it was so cheap! We ordered Pad Thai, Chicken Green Curry with rice, soft drink and Singha beer and it only came to about 540 baht!

Highly recommend this place and don't be put off by the location and size, the food is excellent!

“When you are here, eat Tom Yum Kung! - Picrumb”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Shrimp / Fish / Seafood in spicy soup with lemon grass and herbs.

A bit far way from the station and you may have to walk long way but the taste of the food here exceeds all that. Just taste Tom Yum Kung soup in East Meets West. You will be surprized how deep the soup can be.

“Friendly staff”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Good food served by friendly team. Location is not very attractive and somewhat noisy if seated on the terrace.

“Good food tucked away in a side street”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

We spent our last day in bangkok walking around the silom area. We felt like some authentic thai before leaving and found this restaurant in a quiet side street next to a turkish restaurant! We had really good food and enjoyed our final thai meal and it was a very reasonable price which made it taste even better. We were on our way to the sky bar in the state tower when we found it so it's down that end of silom road. (We decided against going to the sky bar as we didn't feel like paying 15usd for a drink just to see the view!)

“So helpful and delicious food”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Hidden down a little alley off Silom Rd, the lovely staff at this little restaurant were very helpful to us (although the boys on the next table didn't seem as content). The food was delicious and well priced for the area and the staff were helpful in guiding our selection of Thai food. The Red curry and massaman curry were both well flavoured and cooked to our liking. Doesn't look much from the outside but thoroughly recommended. Wish we'd found it earlier in our stay!
