Stopped off here simply because the game my other half wanted to catch was on the big screen here. Pizza was good, staff were probably the least interested we have encountered on our whole trip.

Had a good tasting pepperoni pizza and two JD's and coke for 800 baht. Not the greatest place but was somewhere to stop when hot, hungry and thirsty so no complaints as service was also fast and friendly.

I didn't stay for very long so don't have to much to say. They have some good drinks offers on Carlsberg and Singha. Servers are zombies and are terrible at English. Good to pick up a quick drink or snack during the day.

A relaxing place to sit and have a cold drink. Food was good and had a combination of western and Thai food. It was a very quite the day that we were there and the staff didn't appear to have very good English. The waitress we had serving us outside was very friendly but when I went in to pay... More

The food is ok. A little bland and it could be better and not as pricey. Service is decent. I mainly use it as a place to get a beer and out of the heat.

Wouldn't say that the place was a disappointment, but was out cycling for tacos at Sunrise Tacos (BTW, it has moved from Sukhumvit 12) only to find a vacant lot. Opted for V8 Diner. Was told that it opens at 6am. Ok... just wait a few minutes. When ordering, the wait staff didn't seem to understand what i was ordering.... More

So you have been partying till late morning in Bangkok and now you wanna still have a sit down mid morning Snack.. The V8 Dinner is the place to go to .. I would definitely recommend this place no matter what your appetite for food or Drinks are.

Came here for dinner. Its not really a nightclub. More of a lounge where you can have some food and hubbly bubbly. Food is average. Tried the soup and sandwiches. Nice no major complaints. Slow music , live guitar playing.

Three years ago when I was a this place I thought it was great. But this time it was not as good as then (or as I remembered). The food was kind of bland and the outdoors was very poorly lit, and it was quite dark at most of the tables.

Thank 3jean

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
