“cheap and tasy food court”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

pier 21 inside terminal 21 (asoke bts) must rank as the best value restaurant in Bangkok, although not the biggest selection of vendors, there is a reasonable selection of Thai and Asian dishes at prices from 25 baht up per dish, typical dishes re in the 25-40 baht range,everything is tasty and good examples of tasty simple food.
The fruit shakes and smoothies are incredible value as around 25-30 baht less than half the price of many food courts.
Don't get there too late as many popular dishes start running out in the late afternoon ; early evening.

“Cheap, delicious”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The food here is gorgeous. There is a huge variety of dishes, drinks and desserts. You simply go to the desk and get a swipe card. Dishes ranged in price from 35 - 50 baht. You choose what you want, watch it be made in front of you then find a seat and eat! Bargain prices, good sized portions and a clean and tidy environment.

“Great Introduction to Street Food”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Street food is essential to life in Bangkok. Most apartments do not have cooking facilities, so people eat at street (really storefront) restaurants. For the uninitiated, Pier 21 is a perfect introduction to the street food experience.

“Great food value in a mall”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

among the different food courts in bangkok, this one ranks way up there. It is cheap (compared to the one at MBK), taste good, clean surroundings, and very accessible. Design is also fantastic, so typical of the whole terminal 21 mall. Sure, those food stalls at the streets may be priced better, but for a few baht difference, hygiene difference is no contest when comparing those at the streets to this food court.

“Probably cheapest place to eat in Bangkok. ”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

Stayed in Bangkok with my fiance for a week and on day 3 overheard someone talking about pier 21. It is on the 5th floor of the terminal 21 mall(on skytrain at Station Asok) you just go get a card at the front or back kiosk and fill it with a much money as you want then you visit any of the food stalls and buy very cheap food in a clean environment. They have all the classic Thai dishes. Dishes are a bit on the small side but on the other hand for 60-70 baht you get to try 2 different dishes versus a single dish if you were to buy street food. We kept coming back for super for the next 3 days after discovering it. They also have great fruit smoothies for cheaper than anywhere we've seen in Bangkok. My fiance loved the papaya and mango salad. Just see where the lines are longer and you'll know what's best!
