Salil Experience

Staying at The Salil Hotel means you’re in Thonglor, one of Bangkok’s best neighborhoods for dining. From casual streetside cafés to swish restaurants, the area has everything that makes the city a food mecca.

With so much choice it can be difficult to decide, especially when you’re in the mood for something informal. Thonglor abounds with casual venues offering a wide range of cuisines, settings and seating choices. Here are a few of our favorites. All are nearby the hotel.

Mae Vare

Mae Varee

Open: 7am – 10pm | Phone: +66(0) 2392 4304

Little shop located right at the beginning of Thonglor Road (Sukhumvit Soi 55) Amazing juicy mango with crispy yellow mung beans on top of the sticky rice. Besides mango sticky rice, Mae Varee also sells whole mangoes, a couple of other fruits, snacks and dried fruit products.

Hoi-Tod Chaw-Lae Restaurant

Hoi-Tod Chaw-Lae Restaurant

Open: 9am – 9pm | Phone: +66(0) 8512 83996

This humble eatery actually does have indoor seating, but it still qualifies as street food. Famed for its pad thai and stir fried mussel and oyster creations, The pad thai and fried egg with seafood grills are about triple what you'd pay elsewhere in town, but in trendy Thong Lor, its actually a steal, especially given how tasty the offerings are. The or-ror oysters, eggs, and rice flour pancakes are a real standout. They still get the vote for being one of the best no frills food spots in Bangkok, and are a great option in pricey Thong Lor.

55 Pochana

The food is what keeps visitors in the door and the locals coming back. They serve a variety of Thai and Asian food dishes. Their signature meal is the Dok Kajon Pad Kai. It’s a favorite noodle dish. Another highly-rated dinner is their Bpet Krob Pad Kra Pao. Both of these dishes are a couple of the most-ordered meals here. Many people order several different dishes to sample a range of flavors.
