The best Thai restaurants in Thonglor are: 

 

1. Bamee Kon Sae Lee

 

Bamee Kon Sae Lee is a local restaurant in Thonglor located close to the BTS Station that is specialized in a variety of noodles served with crispy pork, roasted duck and handmade dumplings.

If you love to eat duck, then Buay Pochana is the place for you to go. Located at the end of Sukhumvit Soi 55, this popular local eatery only offers duck dishes, including duck tongue and duck gizzard. Does that sound too adventurous? Don’t worry, we kept it simple during our visits. Our personal favourites are the Duck Stewed Noodles in Clay Pot (120 THB) and Duck Wonton (80 THB). Especially the duck in clay pot was impressively good with plenty of garlic and tasty, rich gravy.

4. Mae Varee

 

Mae Varee can measure itself with the best mango sticky rice shops in town and is a perfect place to devour one of Thailand’s most iconic desserts. Over the years, Mae Varee built up a reputation by serving constantly excellent quality mangos. The downside is that Mae Varee is pricy with a whopping 150 THB per portion. A much cheaper alternative is Je Meaw Sukhuvmit 38, which is a street food cart located at the front of Sukhumvit Soi 38. It offers the same quality mangos but is only open in the evening. You can find more information about these shops on the TopTravelFoods review page of Mae Varee and the TopTravelFoods review page of Je Meaw Sukhumvit 38. Both shops are listed in our article about the best mango sticky rice in Bangkok.
