The Gallery Cafe is very good. It's around the corner from the Royal Orchid Sheraton walking away from River City.

Also good is Tongue Thai. It's on an alley (Soi) off of the way to the Oriental Hotel from Charon Kreung (New Road). It's right behind OP shopping center.

degas,

From Sukhumvit soi 8 or 11 to Ban Chiang at Surasak road(Ban Chiang restaurant) will take around 1/2 hour +/- 20 minutes on a weekday at around 1830 by cab or around 10 - 15 minutes by BTS(Nana station to Surasak station).

Do you only want recommendations for restaurant that is in an old Thai house? Only Thai food?

Hanuman- I've got shocking news for you--There was noodle soup in Thailand before the Chinese "graced" the country with their presence. Better stop now for you wouldn't want to appear any more clueless (and ethnocentric) than you already are.

Hanuman, no, I'm game for other venues and other types of food. I am partial to garden settings and places with a view, but don't have to have it if the food is good.

Mango,

Why do you think the noodle dishes in Thailand are call "Kway Teoy" which is from the Chinese Teochew dialect?? Also did you know that the Thai people migrated from Southern China to where present day Thailand is.

Lastly - why do you think I'm clueless about my own country???

Hanuman-

I find you pretty clueless in general. You clearly lack a sufficient understanding on what the dynamics of migration really are. Save your breath for elementary matters, you won't lose face that way.

Mango,

You seem to have "issues" with everything Chinese and I just wanted to point out that Thailand, as well as a lot of countries in Asia, have been influenced or have adopted certain Chinese culture or food in this case. To call noodle dishes or "Kway Teow" as it is call in Thailand as being non-Chinese or of no Chinese influence is really uninformed information.

I don't really care about loosing face but I do care about the accuracy of the information people post regarding my country. I find that you don't offer any knowledgeable answer about anything but rather offer insults when question about what you post.

Fellas, let's stop this little food fight and get back on topic. There is room for both of you to contribute.

degas,

Sorry about that. Will ask around for a unique garden type restaurant with moderate prices.

Degas,

Here are some suggestion for a garden type restaurant or one with a good view while being moderately priced which I think you might like.

Fuzio - a nice outdoor rooftop garden restaurant especially in the cooler season. http://www.dininginthailand.com/fuzio.bkk.asp

Falabella is another nice Italian place although the main restaurant is indoor but the bar and live music stage are located outdoor or in the open air section facing the open grounds of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club. Very lively at night especially for the weekend so a reservation highly recommended.

I've also mentioned the "Secret Garden" in a previous post which has a nice garden dining area with good Thai/Chinese/Western food and the prices are very reasonable.

Enjoy!

Hi Degas - I don't get to eat at most of the restaurants mentioned here but several that I like are Seefah, Somboon Seafood and Bua.

Forgot about Bua and it used to be very, very popular in the eighties. Open air themed restaurant serving mostly Thai/Chinese food and now they have several branches some in a/c malls. Not sure if it's what you want but here's one of their advertisement: http://www.bangkoksite.com/Restaurant/BuaRes.htm

Indus last night was very good and if you want Indian food then this is one of the best and a great alternative to the Rang Mahal in the Rembrandt hotel. Nicely decorated both inside and outside in the garden and the prices are reasonable.

How do some of these places compare to Zannibar, Kinaree, Face, le delat indochine, Baan Khanitha (Soi 23), Kamthieng House, much less expensive?

Foodland Supermarket, on Sukhumvit Road, Soi 5, in store lunch counter. The world famous Took lae Dee restaurant. Both Asian and Western foods at good prices! Sit at the grill end and get a free cooking lesson. Better food than you might think! Daily food specials. Paying more for your meals doesn't mean it will be any better! You can grab a steak off the meat counter and they will cook it for you at the grill!

Happy eating.

DownunderJack- You again? Go back to your cave please.

Hanuman- For future reference please post highly accurate facts of how things are/were(and not just your notions) and I will spare you my verbal wrath.
