The best reasonably priced pizzeria/restaurant in town. They have other entrees too but I chose their pizza and was not disappointed that I did. There is a wide selection of toppings from meats to vegetarians and the crust is just right and not the pre...More

Amazing how quickly a place deteriorates when the owner sells out. The new "manager" runs around very busy but with zero attention to customers. No "hello" no "did you enjoy your meal?" No personality. Meantime the place is a dump in need of renovation given...More

Without the benefit of reading any of the reviews here, I walked into this restaurant at 6.30pm on a weekday before returning to my hotel around the corner. The elderly Italian gentleman owner ushered me in, and made some recommendations. The menu seemed fairly extensive...More

Looking dowdy and worn out, this small Italian eatery is just cruising along, failing to offer its customers either value or food cooked with any flair or enthusiam. It's annoyingly pricey, with no redeeming features to justify a lamentable price-quality-ratio. Others have noted that the...More

I ate here a couple of times as the Soi was flooded so it was difficult to go anywhere. Food and service were good. Seems to be a bit pricey for Bangkok but it was not outrageous. Portions seemed a bit small to me.

We first chose this place after a long, hot day. It was simply very close to our hotel...no other reasoning. Boy, were we delightfully surprised! The food was incredible. I half expected to walk outside and be in Italy instead of Thailand. The owner was...More

The food was admittedly quite good. Only one house red by the (small) glass...and plonk headache stuff! Certainly overpriced versus competition but still acceptable. Seemed very overrated dumpy place . The owner was not there and as stated in many reviews there is lousy service...More

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
