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 *

Andaman (อันดามัน)

Star full.svgStar full.svgStar half.svgStar empty.svgStar empty.svg Earlier this week when I went to pick up my new visa at the Immigration Bureau in Chaengwattana I found this restaurant tucked away in a faraway corner at the ground floor.

Their slogan is "Big tastes from a Big Ocean", so the place is no doubt called after the Andaman sea that borders Thailand in the West, a famous fishery area. The place is quite spacious; tables and chairs are made of wood, but being set inside a big building not too pleasant. While I was there

The few times I've passed by the place has never been empty, and it seems especially popular with Japanese customers who not only eat

Sazae Sushi Bar

Never having been upstairs, I can only vouch for the authentic atmosphere downstairs with booths for 4 and seating at the bar where the TV entertains with Japanese programs at low volume.

Rows and rows with bottles of sake and other Japanese alcoholic drinks show that quite a few regular customers have their own bottles here. Various beers

Aryaa's Indian Restaurant **** [CLOSED]

Attracted by their small outlet at Nana BTS station, we visited this vegetarian restaurant in lower Sukhumvit. The entrance is downstairs, but the restaurant itself is on the second floor.

The place is decorated with shiny wooden furniture with colourful accents on the walls, artsy lamps and modern Indian artworks. The Indian background videos are played at low volume and don't disturb. We noticed Indian as well as foreign customers, and quite a few were eating the Indian way
