Street food in Sukhumvit by Aimaimyi

Budget Eats
While not as much an institution as in Siam Square, the food courts found at the shopping malls mall and department stores are a good option if you're trying to survive Sukhumvit on budget and want air-conditioning. Just like in Siam Square, food courts come in many varieties from basic snacks to upscale dining. The shopping centres at Emporium Mall, Ploenchit Center and Robinson all have decent food courts. There are also the excellent street foods
some along the sois if you know where to go.

East Asian
For Japanese foods, go to "Little Japan" located near Sukhumvit Soi 33 and across the street at Sukhumvit Soi 24 with Phrom Phong BTS station straddling the two. There is also a smaller concentration of Japanese restaurants along Sukhumvit Soi 55 (Soi Thong Lo), notably the Nihonmura ("Japan Village") in Thong Lo Soi 13.
Korean restaurants can be found scattered throughout Sukhumvit but there is a particularly heavy concentration in "Korea Town", the informal name of Sukhumvit Plaza. There are about a dozen Korean restaurants on the ground floor of the complex. These are extremely authentic and you may have a little trouble ordering if not familiar with Korean food.

Middle Eastern & South Asian
A profusion of Middle Eastern (including Lebanese, Egyptian and Iranian) fare can be found at Sukhumvit Soi 3/1, also known by the locals as
"Soi Arab". Soi 3 and Soi 3/1 is a short walk from the Nana BTS Station and known as "Soi Arab" for its heavy concentration of Middle Eastern businesses in the area - in some spots you will see more signs in Arabic than in Thai! Thanks to a demanding clientele and strong competition, Middle Eastern food here deserves high recommendation. Most of the South Asian restaurants are either Indian or Pakistani establishment. Indian restaurants can be further categorised by region such as South Indian, North Indian and Gujarati. Spicy dishes include curries, korma, masala and tandoori.
