We went to Soei on our last night (of 2 weeks) in Thailand. So definitely can conclude it was the best Thai food we had. We had seven dishes and all of then tasted differently with every dish having it’s own unique flavour. Be it...More

Soei has been one of my favorite Thai restaurants for many years. It's a unique restaurant, formerly along the railroad tracks, but now tucked into a neighborhood. Dishes are in general on the strong tasting side - spicy, sour, herbaceous. Some of my favorite dishes...More

If you like to try an original Thai cuisine,this Soei its a 'must' resto to visit. Located in a peace street, try to be patient when they are prepared your food.

Be patient and don’t visit when hungry. Is it worth the wait, it all depends on your taste preference for Thai food. The flavours are what Thai say “rod jud” or if I could translate as intense not tasty or flavourful. Oh and most dishes...More

Home to at least a dozen hip coffee shops,
sophisticated boutiques and some seriously fine
restaurants, Ari is the newest epicentre of Bangkok
cool. Fleeing from the skyrocketing rents in Thonglor
and Ekamai, many young urbanites made Ari their new
