Having lunch at the Colonial Bistro is like stepping into a different world away from the hustle of the Silom area. Bright white old colonial home turned into a restaurant, offering reasonable Thai lunch specials. Note: the portions are small, but delightful, and mostly spicy....More

Very good fusion of Thai and European cuisine. The service suffers a little because English among the staff is poor- so unless you speak Thai- make sure your translate app is working. No wifi even though they advertise that they have it.

The interior design is nice. The atmosphere is very cosy. I order fried Kway Teow with Karaage chicken. Such a good menu!

Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but
here you’ll find much more than international banks
and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the
small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find
yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much
slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you
can find in the town-house restaurants, office food
courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the

Dating back around 100 years during the reign of King Rama VI, a crystal-clear canal ran through Sathorn Road surrounded by shady tamarind trees. Colonial-style houses with Western culture's influence could be witnessed along both sides of the road. After years of disappearance, Colonial Bistro has returned to life offering home-made authentic Thai cooking, yet with the perfect blend of the Western taste, reminding us of the harmonious Colonial and Thai cultures in the old days.
