Excellent value @Baht1,200/person for "all you can eat" buffet served fine dining style. We made the reservation online two weeks ago thinking the restaurant might be full on Mother's Day. To our surprise, it was a quiet day. Only 4-5 tables including ours. Quiet environment, nice background music & attentive service. Every dish we ordered was good & beautifully presented.... More

Recently went to Whale's Belly (again) and had an outstanding dining experience. Nice environment, very good service and of course outstanding food and drinks. We had the set menu dinner with wine pairings and every course was a flavour treat! I think it was our 3rd or 4th visit. Highly recommended!

After reading so many positive reviews of this restaurant I thought it would be a great treat for my Wife's birthday and invited her and a friend along. I should have realized something amiss when we entered the restaurant at 8pm on a Wednesday evening and we were the only diners in the entire restaurant. No other customers were there... More

I went to this resturant last year and I am very impressed in the lobster cabonara. The cabonara at Whale's Belly is one of the most deliciuos cabonara i have eaten. The time passed for a year but I still remember the taste of cabonara. 👍🏻👍🏻

Recently moved into the area so trying to get a feel for the local restaurants - this was recommended by a Thai friend but sadly didn't meet expectations. Not really sure what this restaurant is trying to accomplish as its theme - service was good. F&B average.

I read a lot of good reviews about this restaurant. it is good food but I would not say it is worth the price. I would recommend going during lunch and getting the set menu, which is more affordable than dinner. The staff offer great service; is nice architecture. However, there are other places in Bangkok which have better food... More

Had my birthday dinner here with my husband last night. All the dishes were delicious especially cold tuna capellini and tuna tartar and also the charcoal bread. Mocktail was very good. Very elegant ambience and very impressive service. Would definite come here again and highly recommend this place to everyone!

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
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.
