If you like to try an original Thai cuisine,this Soei its a 'must' resto to visit. Located in a peace street, try to be patient when they are prepared your food.

Nothing good to share. I witnessed the owners talking smack to the customers that waited for hours for their food. I waited 2.5 hours for my food to start arriving and this place took 4 hours total of my time. INSANE! Also, you are not...More

The most horrible service ever. We waited 3 hours and only got 3 dishes (that came .5hour apart). Our little kids were starving and could only eat plain rice and some snack at the counter. After 3 hours, we asked to cancel the rest of...More

Be patient and don’t visit when hungry. Is it worth the wait, it all depends on your taste preference for Thai food. The flavours are what Thai say “rod jud” or if I could translate as intense not tasty or flavourful. Oh and most dishes...More

5th visit here and it never disappoint. Love the egg salad and mackerel curry. The flavours are on the heavy side and they have slightly tone down their spice levels compared to my 1st visit.

I was delighted to read some of the glowing reviews of this place, since I live about 1km away. I was really looking forward to eating here. Anyway, we went last week, and the food was ok, nothing special, though it took a long time...More

I was taken there by friends of the owner.. It is located in a soi near Samsen station. I was not aware of any special treatment: it was a regular occurrence. First impression: the food was exquisite, although presentation was very everyday. It looked like...More

I found this restaurant thanks to Mark Wiens of the website Migrationology. This restaurant is not easy to find in the new location and it's in the outskirts of Bangkok so you need a cab driver, but you will be rewarded with some of the...More

Home to at least a dozen hip coffee shops,
sophisticated boutiques and some seriously fine
restaurants, Ari is the newest epicentre of Bangkok
cool. Fleeing from the skyrocketing rents in Thonglor
