The Top 10 Streets for Food in Bangkok – A foodie's dream come true

Bangkok is ranked as the best city for food lovers by Lonely Planet because of the incredible variety of food it has to offers. Here are 10 of the best streets to visit and what to try out.


Yaowarat road

China town or Yaowarat in Thai is well known all throughout Bangkok for offering some of the best dining options. Yaowarat road which runs through the centre of Chinatown and parallels to Charoen Krung road offer some interesting dishes like suckling pork and bird's nest soup. Pahurat which is known as Bangkok's' Little India is also a short distance and offers a variety of Indian food.


Victory Monument

Victory Monument is a large roundabout and one of Bangkok's main transportation hubs that load and unload several buses daily hence is an ideal location to visit for street food. The famous boat noodle alley which lies on the northeast side of the Victory Monument houses a wide variety of restaurants where you can taste this area's delicacy.


Ratchawat Market/ Sriyan Market

These are 2 of Bangkok's oldest and most traditional markets located in Dusit District down Nakhon Chaisi road. While Ratchawat Market which you encounter first offers a good selection of Fried curry shark, Kobe beef noodles and roast duck Sriyan Market is known for its fresh wet market, curry restaurants and noodle restaurants.


Talat Phlu

Located close to the train track coming from Wang Wian Yai Talat Phlu is an area blessed with many talented street food vendors who decorate their shops proudly with awards, plaques and newspaper clippings praising their culinary skills. Talat Phlu is well known for its sticky rice and durian amongst the regular dishes which are commonly served by street food vendors.



Located near the Victory Monument transportation hub, Rangnam is popular amongst expats and locals. Massage parlours, funky bars, fine dining restaurants and popular 4 star hotels in Bangkok surround this street food paradise that offers Thai seafood, rib noodles and if you're in luck Thailand's renown dancing shrimp.


Sukhumvit 38

Sukhumvit 38 or Suk 38 is an affordable street food street hub located near Adelphi Suites in the middle of Bangkok's upscale district Thong Lo. It offers street food options to the people who prefer open-air dining over air-conditioned fine dining. Though Sukhumvit 38 doesn't offer the best street food in Bangkok it is frequented by tourists and expats due to convenience factor and friendly attitude of the vendors that make them feel right at home.

All the regular Thai street food cuisine like sticky rice (Khao neow), rice with basil, port and a fried egg (pao moo kai dao) and pad Thai make it a great place for an introduction on what to expect from Thai street food.


Tha Pra Chan

Located near the Chao Phraya river and Democracy Monument Tha Pra Chan offers a great choice of food carts and restaurants to choose from where Kanom buang, a well-known traditional Thai Snack can be found easily.


Wang Lang Market

On the other side of the Chao Phraya river from Tha Pra Chan is Wang Lang Marker, a snack lovers paradise. From Gilled bananas to fried fish, pork, chicken and a variety of Thai desserts the choices are endless!


Petchaburi Soi 5

Phetchaburi Soi 5 which is located in between the Siam and Victory Monument consists of many takeaway restaurants that cater to people coming home from work. There are still, however, a few places that let you enjoy a sit-down meal after a long day's work. Delicacies that can be found here include fruit stall, snacks of all sorts and noodle vendors.


Soi Ari

Soi Ari, also known as Phahon Yothin Soi 7 although located in what is considered "main Bangkok" still holds on to its suburban neighbourhood feeling. Lined with fancy sit down restaurants and street food carts Soi Ari is another must-see location for food lovers.
