Siam Centre Bangkok food court offers a huge choice of restaurants in a nice air conditioned environment. Next door to Siam Paragon and opposite MBK, you can spend days eating and shopping here. The choice of restaurants in Bangkok is amazing, everything from spectacular rooftop venues to the best street food in the world.

Siam Center Bangkok was built in 1973 and was one of Bangkok’s first shopping malls. It has undergone renovation several times, including after a fire in 1995. In January 11, 2013, Siam Center established the new phase and re-branding itself as Siam Center The Ideaopolis.


 

 

Food Republic Siam Center Bangkok

Siam Center Bangkok food court – or Food Republic, to use its proper name – is a welcome addition to Bangkok’s already plentiful supply. This stylish, gun-metal grey collection of food and beverage stalls has one of the best spreads of world cuisine of any in the capital and a modern décor that blurs the line between food court and restaurant. It’s cool, clean and bustling with a varied clientèle of locals and tourists.

So many attractive food options

Like most of the Bangkok shopping malls the food choices are endless.

A side benefit apart from all the shops is being able to escape the Bangkok heat.

Hong Kong Roast

Hong Kong Roast duck is one of my favourite meals, that’s the beauty of Bangkok every cuisine in the world is available. Earlier this year I visited seven super cities all famous for food and I can honestly say Bangkok is as good as any of them.

Mr Jones Orphanage is a very unusual name for a restaurant, it gets good reviews on TripAdvisor.

Singapore is amazing for food

 

Lisbon! What a great city for fabulous food.

My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets. I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington. Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand. What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :) I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit. Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. ???? Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia. Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
