Having lunch at the Colonial Bistro is like stepping into a different world away from the hustle of the Silom area. Bright white old colonial home turned into a restaurant, offering reasonable Thai lunch specials. Note: the portions are small, but delightful, and mostly spicy....More

Very good fusion of Thai and European cuisine. The service suffers a little because English among the staff is poor- so unless you speak Thai- make sure your translate app is working. No wifi even though they advertise that they have it.

This restaurant begs and gets the award of the worst restaurant I have been in over last 20 years across 25 odd countries - and I eat at restaurants on an average 2-3 times a week. When I went there for the first time, I...More

Beautiful Elegant Restaurant in the heart of Sathorn district. We found it by accident, thought it was a nice coffee shop until we went upstairs to the beautifully furnished dining area. Thai and Western food is good quality, professional friendly staff. A breath of fresh...More

The interior design is nice. The atmosphere is very cosy. I order fried Kway Teow with Karaage chicken. Such a good menu!

Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but
here you’ll find much more than international banks
and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the
small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find
yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much
slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you
can find in the town-house restaurants, office food
courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the

Description
Dating back around 100 years during the reign of King Rama VI, a crystal-clear canal ran through Sathorn Road surrounded by shady tamarind trees. Colonial-style houses with Western culture's influence could be witnessed along both sides of the road. After years of disappearance, Colonial Bistro has returned to life offering home-made authentic Thai cooking, yet with the perfect blend of the Western taste, reminding us of the harmonious Colonial and Thai cultures in the old days.
