I’m a foodie through and through (and a proud one at that), however I have to admit, sometimes, nothing beats a great takeaway – especially when it’s been a long day of traveling or exploring, especially a city as big as Bangkok at that.
If you happen to be staying in the Sukhumvit area – yes, there is so much food at every corner especially here, but it can become pretty overwhelming/time-consuming/tiring – we’ve found our choice of favourite cafes, restaurants, speciality coffee houses and street food spots that are now available on food apps in Bangkok such as Foodpanda and GrabFood.
Whether you’re in the mood for Korean or Japanese, something fresh or something local, this will have you covered.
Note: GrabFood services will only operate from 4am to 9pm for Bangkok and nearby areas to comply with government regulations.
Disclaimer: Operational hours of each restaurant may change anytime due to the current pandemic. Please call the operators to confirm before ordering.
2. All the delicious dimsum you could imagine — Hong Bao
SO, who doesn’t like dimsum?! (I’ve yet to meet anyone who actually doesn’t, even if trying it for the first time.)
Although this Chinese restaurant serves main course dishes (try their Peking Duck either served roasted (the classic way!) or Szechuan style done in a spicy chili stir-fry style), they are known for their epic dimsum.
Customers rave about the Salapao Lava Baos here, with the perfect amount of creaminess, as well as Shumai (steamed shrimp and/or pork dumplings).
P.s. They also do a week-day traditional Chinese high-tea (but obvs not for ordering in 😉).
Price:From 117 Baht / approx. USD $3.88 Address: ชั้น 5, Central Embassy, 1031 Phloen Chit Rd, Pathum Wan, Pathum Wan District, Bangkok 10330, Thailand (Coordinates here) Order in from: Foodpanda and GrabFood Delivery hours: Daily from 11am to 7pm Contact: +66 2 160 5679
3. The ultimate veggie brunch cafe — Veganerie Concept
Let’s be real, sometimes after a few days (or weeks) of instant/fast food, all you just want is a home-cooked meal! And the best news is, IT’S ALL VEGAN BASED (for all the vegans and vegetarians reading this).
Here, you’ll find a mix of both Thai and western foods; think Baked Pizza Roti (crispy & tender baked roti topped with homemade tomato sauce, mushrooms, vegan sausage, vegan cheese sauce and cashew nut parmesan).
Feeling something sweet? They do divine Butterscotch Hotcakes made with almond flour, topped with peanut butter, cookie crumble, soy caramel and coconut whipped cream!
Price:From 195 Baht / approx. USD $6.47 Address: 35 2 Sukhumvit Rd, Khlong Tan, Khlong Toei, Bangkok 10110, Thailand (Coordinates here) Order in from:Foodpanda and GrabFood Delivery hours: Daily from 9am to 7.30pm Contact: +66 2 258 8489
Want something light and fresh for breakfast? If you’re like me (or vegan), I’m not a fan of eggs – or noodles – for breakfast, so this is an ideal option in my personal opinion 😉
Their Acai bowls are super yummy filled with goji seeds, coconut shreds, chia seeds and more! They have a nice variety to choose from that all look so delicious, it may be quite difficult to make up your mind!
We also have to mention the drinks… French Vanilla Latte or Lychee Roselle Flaneur Blend tea anyone? Yes, please.
Price:From 100 Baht / approx. USD $3.32 Address: 693, 695 Sukhumvit Rd, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand (Coordinates here) Order in from: Foodpanda and GrabFood Contact: +66 92 987 4905 Delivery hours: Daily from 10am to 7pm
7. The original takeaway delivery — Pizza Artisana
Okay, so logically speaking we just had to include a pizza option – I feel like pizza was probably the start of the delivery service revolution, and to be honest for some reason ordering takeaway pizza is always a yummy option!
The pizzas here are made in an oven, with a perfectly thin (but not too much so), crispy base, and simplistic toppings – the true Italian way.
Price:From 320 Baht / approx. USD $10.61 Address: 394 On Nut 10 Alley, Khwaeng Suan Luang, Suan Luang, Bangkok 10250, Thailand (Coordinates here) Order in from: Foodpanda and GrabFood Delivery hours: Tue-Sun from 12pm to 8:30pm (Closed Mondays) Contact: +66 91 784 6165
8. A great choice if you’re a big group and you’re all after something different — B Story Cafe
Now we know that actually visiting this gorgeous garden cafe is always a pleasure, with all it’s stunning greenery hanging from the walls and ceilings, but if you are craving one of their mouth-watering dishes you’ll be delighted to know you can order it online!
1. Korean-style fried chicken wings 2. Grilled salmon served with asparagus and tomatoes 3. Pizza Mexican Quesadilla 4. Macaroni with cheddar cheese and fried bacon 5. Fruit salad with fried shrimp perfect for every occasion!
The best thing about B-story Café: “Thai and Western food menu with its wide range of selections.”

9. My kind of brunch meal — GRAM Pancakes
Well, with a name like this, our first thoughts are ‘trendy food’. And although you may not be stepping into the actual cafe itself, their desserts are just so tres hipster / on trend.
From Premium To Go (handheld) pancakes to classic pancakes, they’re great when you feel like snacking on something sweet. And when your food arrives, you may just end up snapping away anyhow – it’s just that pretty!
Price:From 75 Baht / approx. USD $2.29 Address: 257/7 Thong Lo 13, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand (Coordinates here) Order in from: Foodpanda and GrabFood Delivery hours: Daily from 9am to 8.30pm
10. Because nothing beats Korean fried chicken! — Overseoul
Tired of Thai? Opt for some absolutely mouth-watering Korean street food!
They’ve got all our usual favourites, from Korean Fried Chicken to Tteok-Bokki served with Ramyeon noodles… Try their Hot Steamed Pork Belly, or their Roasted Chicken with salt and sesame oil!
Another super traditional (and cute) dish to try is their School Lunch Box (based on what moms make their kids for school, served in a container and you usually shake all the ingredients inside together before eating).
Price:From 140 Baht / approx. USD $4.64 Address: 1029/12, 3rd fl Phahonyothin Rd, Samsen Nai, Phaya Thai, Bangkok 10400, Thailand (Coordinates here) Order in from: GrabFood Contact: +66 86 414 6974 Delivery hours: Daily from 9am to 8pm
13. A spot that takes their coffee seriously — Roots Coffee Roaster
Nothing starts a day like a great coffee. Recently when traveling, I stayed in a place with not a lot of restaurants/cafes around me, so I resorted to Grab Food to try to get my morning fix but was sadly disappointed in the lack of great coffee shops available. So this is awesome!
If you’re on the hunt for flavour, or maybe you consider yourself a true coffee connoisseur… You simply have to give this speciality coffee powerhouse a try.
Intrigued with trying something different? Their signature thing is their infused coffee in all different fruity & floral assortments.
