I promise to write about this for www.agoda.com friends. If you happen to stay in this hotel like I did, and it happen to rain heavily or you happen to feel very tired and don’t feel like moving your ass to anywhere, you should really check out the food at the coffee house below.

I was having a lunch meeting one of the days at the coffee house located at the same lobby of Bangkok City Hotel. Well, it is not a distinctively coffee house but when you approach the staff at the front office, they will get someone to come and take your orders. The menus are not new, and not many varieties, afterall this is a boutique hotel. Hence I ordered what I felt like eating. They have room service as well but I reckon it’s a lot nicer to lunch downstairs and watch tourists go by… 😉

Lobby Coffee House
Pineapple Fried Rice – Awesome
Fried Kale With Roasted Pork – Apparently a local favourite
Fried Red Chicken Curry – This is a really nice dish.

Rating: 5/5

Taste: Put it this way, my Thai counterparts even agreed that the food was good! Wonder who the chef is…. hmmm…

Portion: Average

Price: Very reasonable. Suitable for lunch meetings for local Thais.

RTE: If I’m nearby or staying at same hotel again, I definitely would!

Location: 268 Soi Petchburi 10-12 Petchburi Road, Ratchathewi, Bangkok, 10400, Thailand Tel: (66-2)  215-2929 (http://www.bangkokcityhotel.com/)




Stan, Nur and Dorcas bought me dinner recently which was meant for my farewell, but ended up I had to push back my flight to end of the month due to staffing problems.

So I suggested this place at Feast@East because I had hi-tea there before and the food selection was pretty decent. Check out the pics below:

This kebab has really good seasoning in the meat... and very very nice and succulent.
Cold starters selection! The salmon was very fresh!
Appetisers... dunno why the bak kua is there... leftovers from CNY? Hmmm...
Ice cream... the mango one is damn good... top right corner.
Chocolate fountain with loads of fruits for dipping!
Durian Puree and on the right is the durian cake... these 2 are favourites for many if you are a durian fan!
kueh! kueh! kueh! very nice selection of kueh, cakes, puddings, etc... the opera cake is damn good...
A segment for the young and old... melamine-free white rabbit milk candy and kiam sng tnee for the older folks... one whole row around the pillar
On the other side, we have the cooked food... This braised oxtail looks good but actually it's not... not tender enough... obviously the chef don't eat oxtail... hard like stone...
Local lksa, Penang laksa, and prawn soup... Remember to ask for small portion cos the chef will give you a large bowl!
I just love kitchen technology... imagine having this at home...
Oh yeah there's crayfish and pork ribs as well
Think next time I'll just hit the ice cream counter first...
Very nice ambience... great for catching up with friends...

Rating: 4.5/5 (Not everything is well done.)

Taste: I would say in general it’s very nice.

Portion: NA… buffet lah…

Price: $36+++ But if you have Accor Advantage Plus card, 4 pax free 1.

RTE: Not in the near future. Maybe for the hi-tea though.

Tips: Parking at the hotel is super expensive and no complimentary. Try to park at Roxy Square behind or around the hotel.
