Take some of Asia’s biggest malls, hundreds of street-side vendors and a dozen of posh hotels and you’ll have Siam - Bangkok’s commercial district that will make any shopper’s heart beat faster.

Yes they have a resturant and the food was some of the best we had on our trip. I really enjoyed the beautiful atmosphere too. Also iced coffee was the best I've ever had... I will always remeber it lol. Service is a touch slow and menu is touch expensive but I think worth it for sure.
