Visited here at 2am after a good night out. It was still fairly busy. Open 24 hours and located within the Foodland supermarket it's relatively close to Sukhumvit Road, 5 mins walk from the Asok BTS station. Nicely air conditioned, plenty of places at tables and seats at the long counter. Mix of Thai and Western dishes available, all cooked... More

You can't claim to have visited Bangkok (especially the Sukhumvit locale) if you haven't positioned yourself at its U-shaped counter in a very busy and popular supermarket on Soi 5. The menu offers reliably cooked Thai dishes at keen prices plus an odd assortment of western dishes that can be disappoint. There is one notable exception: oxtail soup, not on... More

If you want attentive service & nice ambience, stay away. But If you are looking for great tasting Thai, semi-Chinese & modified western food at a budget price, you will love this place. Portions are pretty good size too. Everything is cooked to the order at the open kitchen line. It's clean, though service level fluctuates when it is packed... More

Great place for budget food. It's very clean and everything cooked fresh. Open 24 hours. Even the coffee is fresh ground espresso, cheaper and better than Starbucks. No need to take a risk eating the plethora of dirty BKK street food. Highly recommend for the budget conscious adventurer. Your gut will thank you for this safer food choice.

I always come here to eat as its better than most restaurants in the vicinity, cheap cheerful and always cooked well. The fact that its in a supermarket is a plus as if its busy you can shop first. Quick food with a nice easy to read menu, the staff are friendly and easy to talk too.

Relatively wide variety of Thai and Western food at low price but very clean and good quality served to you like you are in McDonalds. They cook it for you in front of your eyes under an air-conditioned atmosphere and they taste authentic. From Thai Cousin specially Green Curry with Chicken to their American Breakfast under $90 bath are exceptional... More

If you're in the Arab area of Soi 5, and kebabs are not on your radar, but a Thai green curry instead, try this stand up eatery. For a budget below Thb 100 per person, you can expect a good wholesome Thai meal cooked in their open kitchen.

A very interesting restaurant experience with a full menu of typical Western and Thai dishes. It reminds me of 1950s-60s restaurants in the US with quick, full service dining 24-hours a day. Staff is always friendly and helpful, food is always fresh and pretty low-priced (portions are Asian and not Western, however). Free flowing iced water always a treat. Full... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
