Top 5 Restaurants within walking distance of Nana

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am going on a whirldwind 3 days trip to BKK so im trying to be a good boy scout and come prepared :)

 

I was wondering if you guys could share your Top 5 restaurants around Nana? High low, anything goes, but I hope that you have a least one Thai place on your list, as I would like to eat as much local as possible (Thai food prices in Scandinavia are ridiculous and not very good food...)

 

cheers.

Cool thx. Any recommendations if i venture off with the BTS? I figure with the weather end of the month and traffic, walking and taxis will be tough so prefer something near the stations.

If you want quality upgraded Thai food, check out Soul Food Mahanakorn, a very short walk from the Thong Lor BTS. If alone, you can sit at the bar (they also do good drinks). If with a date, reservations advised. They're ladyboy friendly. I've brought dates there before. I've even seen a ladyboy employed as a server.

Should all of the above or whatever follows this post fail, or should you find yourself around Nana after hours and famished, you can always rely on getting some decent food at Took Lae Dee.

While not falling into the category of elegance as other places. it should not disappoint you.

 

Took Lae Dee means cheap and good in Thai, and its long food counter, which can be found inside any branch of Foodland supermarkets, has appeared in countless numbers of Thai movies and thus is well known throughout the country. The food is nothing over the top, but its regulars swear by it, and many visitors to Thailand end up spending days and hours there, lingering over the big breakfasts, including toast, eggs, bacon, ham, sausages, orange juice and tea or coffee. Think of that local cheap hangout diner back in the USA and you can see why Took Lae Dee is a success, not to mention that you can go shopping in the supermarket while you are there.

 

The branch in Soi 5 attracts the odd freelancer...so you never know what bargains you may get.

Absolutely!! I eat lunch at Soi 5 Foodland TLD almost daily when in BKK. Ditto said it all.

I have done that a few times and sure it is worth a try. Remember to order something also for the girls, they will love it and they will love you.

 

Another option is to take a girl out for dinner and let her order the food, I have eaten some delicious things this way that were not even on the menu

good idea that,might take Fiat or Cat out one night.

I don't rate Bangkok for Western or other foreign food at all, but there's surprisingly good Thai food around:

 

This place in soi 8 is famous for the fish curry and a short walk from nana:

 

Prai Raya

59 Soi Sukhumvit 8, Khwaeng Khlong Toei, Khet Khlong Toei, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110

02 253 5556

 

https://goo.gl/maps/3RAgG4mDHbH2

 

There's a load of good street food here and in the vicinity:

 

Nana Market

Sukhumvit Rd, Khwaeng Khlong Toei Nuea, Khet Watthana, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110

Really delicious Thai fine dining two bts stops nearby:

 

Sawasdee

06-07 อาคาร President Tower ชั้น G Phloen Chit Rd, Khwaeng Lumphini, Khet Pathum Wan, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330

02 656 0141

 

https://goo.gl/maps/ZLfGk2zwV272

 

The better of the mall food courts is in Embassy, LG floor called Eathai, it's setup like an open market with food from different parts of the country to help familiarise yourself with what Thai food comes from where in Thailand (though most Isaan dishes are actually from Laos) :

 

 

Eathai @ Central Embassy

1031 Phloen Chit Rd, Khwaeng Lumphini, Khet Pathum Wan, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330

02 160 5940

The best Thai food is not in the central city, but these are all tourist friendly places close to you.

How are the Mall food courts at Siam and Termimal 21.

 

Does anyone have a China Towb recommendation?

Plenty of choice for sure.

Siam would be my pick and the food offerings on centralworld look as good if not better.

I believe the food court at the top of terminal 21 is as cheap as chips.

Food hall up top or 2nd top ? floor of MBK is good & also cheap . Can use rabbit (bts) card there also & top it up if needed too . Edited by Boomerang

Terminal 21 higher floor from memory (cinema on very top) and use voucher system and refund what you don't need.

For all our complaints about exchange rates, Bangkok offers everything from street food upto

high end dining and everything in between.

We all have the option of cutting our cloths accordingly if necessary.

The top 2 sounds good.

I always forget about the market. I pass it and think "I will stop there to eat later" and forget.
