Soi 18 (Soi Phichit) has lots cheap to mid-range dining options. It is one of the best streets in Sukhumvit for informal dining at value-for-money prices. Below we describe what you find as you walk down the street.
Tree in the Wall
The Pavillion Indian Restaurant
This restaurant gets mixed reviews. Some people love it, others are disappointed. The style of cooking is authentic Indian, with Chinese and Thai dishes on the menu which are rarely ordered. The clientele is largely ethnic Indians. Dinner for two will cost around 900 to 1,100 Thai Baht.
La Rueda Latin Club
Not a bar as such, but a Latin dance studio which also serves drinks. Learn to salsa and have a beer or glass of wine with your fellow class mates afterwards. Regular free classes held. Pop by and check the timetable.
Roy Thai Bar and Restaurant
Roy Thai Bar and Restaurant is an inexpensive ‘everyday’ restaurant serving Thai food and some International dishes. It is less popular than the Palm Bar or Lean on Tree Restaurant farther down the street.

Lean on Tree is a restaurant that gets great reviews on Trip Advisor. It is priced between cheap and mid-range and serves very tasty classic Thai dishes. Our recommended dish is chicken with cashew nuts. There is indoor and outdoor seating in the restaurant’s urban tropical garden.
