It is no wonder that the world has fallen in love with Bangkok tourism: breathtaking landscapes; rich history; quirky pop culture and the best Thai cuisine.
When choosing the favorite places to eat best Thai food in Bangkok, you should consider Siam Paragon Food Hall Bangkok. It is divided into three different zones: Food Hall Food Court, Food Hall Gallery, and Food Hall Take Home. Food Hall Food Court is arranged in a crescent-like fashion with a sizeable aquarium standing in the middle.
Siam Paragon Food Court
Stationed under the main atriums at the front of the mall, the Food Hall offers an array of Thai and world-class dishes in the crescent-shaped food court and adjacent banks of stalls, along with the ubiquitous fast food brands and Thai franchises, all of which offer great options for groups with differing tastes.
The quality of the food court is exceedingly high and is one of the tips for travelers who do not like Bangkok street food. The first joint serves ‘Isaan’ (Northeastern Thai) food to the soundtrack of mortar and pestle colliding into one another, yielding a pleasant result: a mouth-watering ‘som tum’ (spicy papaya salad).
Further away from the Food Court is the Food Hall Gallery, a slightly more up-scale food venue with a chic setting and a cornucopia of culinary delights. The procedure here is just a tad different because, upon entering the venue, you will be given a card to be used like a credit card. Food Hall Gallery offers only the best of local and international cuisines all in one place.

Gourmet Hall is where you will find the more up-market establishments, which serve some of the best food in Bangkok. The restaurants here are merely taking the logistics out of finding a gourmet meal by bringing the food to the people.
Café Chilli are an excellent place to sample the famed dishes of the region, which is known for its powerful use of flavors. Servings are small and each has an individual taste due to the bold use of herbs and spices, so it’s best to order several dishes for the table to share so you can get the right blend of fiery spice, biting citrus and bitter herb flavors. This is exactly the kind of food that tourists come back to Thailand to find. It also boasts a shaded outdoor patio area – perfect for relaxing with a drink in hand.
Specialty roast duck restaurant originally from London, this is only the second branch worldwide and has remained true to its traditional Chinese-inspired menu with a variety of seafood, crispy pork belly and tofu dishes. The real draw card, however, is the dish on which the restaurant made its name: succulent roasted duck.
The signature dish can be ordered in two sizes: half duck for 600 baht or a whole duck for 1,100 baht. The duck sauce is rich, yet delicate, and the cooking method is tried and tested to deliver consistency. This is a classy restaurant with an international reputation and should be the first choice for duck lovers.
Crystal Jade Golden Palace
Crystal Jade offers an extensive selection of dim sum and other authentic Cantonese cuisine in modern, opulent surroundings. Each ‘little treat’ is fresh and full-flavored with enough options to make even the most skeptical dim-sum diners lifelong converts.
It is one of the only restaurants in Paragon with an entry passage, which can be fairly intimidating for browsers and the undecided, but once inside the layout is spacious with a contemporary Chinese feel. Other classic Cantonese delicacies are also popular here including abalone and fresh seafood.
After You Cake Shop
Located next to the Gourmet Supermarket, the restaurant serves a limited selection of savory food including fried breakfasts, pancakes with bacon and waffles with smoked sausage. The ice coffee looks as though they’ve been crafted into shape by a sculptor. You has maximized their floor space so tables leave scant room for elbows, but it all helps to create an atmosphere that is lively and exciting.
Take Away Counters
Nobody would be able to resist the Food Hall Take Home section. Highly recommended item is the ‘kanom kui chai’, steamed paper-thin dough stuffed with Chinese chive, bamboo shoot, and dried shrimps, eaten with tangy black sauce.
Favorite Thai desserts like ‘look choob’ (mung bean paste in miniature fruit shapes) and sticky rice with mango are beloved. Before you leave, do not forget to visit the promotional area, where food-related events are held regularly. Recently featured were the tastiest ‘pad thai’ (stir-fried noodle) you’ll ever taste, and grilled shellfish straight from Hokkaido, Japan.
