I've eaten with friends and colleagues in all these restaurants in (greater) Bangkok. I'm no food expert, but I do know what I like! Many of my older reviews were also published in Japanese on newsclip.be タイ発ニュース速報. Whether you're after Thai food, or craving a Mexican taco, Japanese buffet or fish & chips, you can find it all here. (2016: I'm adding my Tripadvisor reviews here)

* A friendly WARNING: restaurants close, change and move regularly, so before you go make sure to check *

Jang Won Korean Restaurant

Star full.svgStar full.svgStar full.svgStar half.svgStar empty.svg Sukhumvit Plaza is Bangkok's Korea-town.

The food is international, although most of the food is of Arab and Greek
