Baan Khanitha, 36/1 Sukhumvit Soi 23 ( BTS Asoke ), +66 2 258 4181 +66 2 258 4181
Well known if mildly touristy restaurant in an old Thai house, the primary concession
to Western tastes being the lack of chili. On the expensive side with most mains
( esp. Seafood ) in the 200-400 Baht range, but the food is generally excellent and
the presentation spot-on. Best known for their pomelo salad and red curry with duck
kaeng daeng pet.
Cabbages and Condoms, 6 Sukhumvit Soi 12 ( between BTS Nana and BTS Asoke ). Run
by Thailand's Population and Community Development Association, the odd name referring
to the founder's belief that condoms should be as cheap as veggies; and no prizes
for guessing what you will get after dinner instead of an after-dinner mint. The
food is competent but toned down for the foreign palate. Mains 150-300 Baht.
Check Inn Garden, Sukhumvit. Previous reviews said this place was straight out of
a James Bond movie. However, it's closer to Rick's Cafe in Casablanca. Located on
Sukhumvit between Soi’s 5 and 7, Check Inn Garden ( no longer 99 ) is an oasis amidst
the chaos of the Nana area. Good Western and Thai menu, a friendly and attentive
staff, and terrific entertainment every night courtesy of three delightful Philippine
Food Centre Soi 5, ( BTS Nana ). Simple, well visited restaurant serving Thai and
Western food. Thai dishes are reasonably original, with little concession to the
Western taste. Rapid service. Main dishes around 100 Baht.
