Finding local restaurants near Jim Thompson House can be challenging as the museum is located around large shopping malls and many residential areas. You can grab some great food at the nearby shopping malls, at Thai restaurants such as Taling Pling and Baan Ice, but for the purpose of this article, only local restaurants will be listed. Many restaurants listed in this article are located either close to Ratchathewi BTS Station or at Banthat Road, meaning that you still need to grab a taxi for a short ride from Jim Thompson House to one of these amazing local restaurants. But I can guarantee you that the food will blow you away!
 

The best local restaurants near Jim Thompson House are:

 

1. Pe Aor


In my opinion, the best tom yum soup can be found at this restaurant, Pe Aor. The restaurant is located relatively close to Jim Thompson House Museum near Ratchatwei BTS Station, but as mentioned earlier, you still need to grab a taxi in order to get there. The restaurant itself is located in an alley where you can find all sorts of local eateries, but Pe Aor is by far the most popular one. One of the highly recommended dishes is the Lobster in Love (450 THB), which is a next-level tom yum soup with lobster. The basic version of this delicious soup starts from 60 THB. Other highly recommended dishes are Fried Noodles with Tom Yum Seafood (150 THB) and the Crab Spring Rolls (50 THB). Pe Aor is the best place to get tom yum near the Jim Thompson House. More in-depth information can be found in our article about Pe Aor and the best Tom Yum in Bangkok. General information, such as opening times, location, menu and TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Pe Aor.

Inter is a large restaurant located at close to Siam Square thanks to its fairly-priced and tasty Thai food. This two-story building is always packed with hungry locals as Inter is one of the few cheap eats in this area.

The following dishes are among the bestsellers: Roasted Duck in Coconut Milk Red Curry (110 THB), Green Curry with Chicken (100 THB) and Fried Pork Spareribs with Garlic and Pepper (120 THB).

3. Ar-Simp


Ar-Simp is another great restaurant near the Jim Thompson House and is listed in our article about the best Pad Thai in Bangkok. Similar to Pe Aor, Ar-Simp is located close to Ratchathewi BTS Station, north of Jim Thompson House. The restaurant is in business for decades and over the years, it developed the perfect recipe for their Pad Thai. The menu is split into two types of Pad Thai and we strongly recommend you trying the more spicy version. The signature Padthai Ar-Simp Song-Krueng (150 THB) is a large plate of Pad Thai and mixed seafood that you absolutely must order. Ar-Simp is the place to go for a delicious Pad Thai near Jim Thompson House.
