Bangkok: Platinum Mall

Are there any particularly good lunch option(s) in or near Platinum Mall? I'll be staying near the National Stadium BTS and plan to take the canal boat over to Platinum so anything by the canal stops works too.

  1. Across the pedestrian bridge, from Pantip Plaza, there is a small shop called "Pantip Khao Mun Kai". Khao mun kai is the Thai version of Hianese chicken rice, a little spicier sauce, less ginger. The place also can make pad see ewe and ladna.

    It's the shop with the Pepsi stuff in this photo / map.

    1. If you can handle lan khao gaeng, "steam tray" style, Pantip Plaza's 2nd floor food court has some tasty offerings, including one of the city's better green curries. There is also a spot that sell khao soy, a Chiangmai speciality.

        I'm planning a visit to Pantip Plaza. Is there a particular vendor to look out for that green curry or is there just one steam table place and your rec is to get the green curry there?

          There is just a spot that serves different entrees with rice. The last time I was there, it was, pretty much, the center attraction. I will have to offer this disclaimer; I haven't been for some time.

      2. Perfect, thanks for the recommendations!
