CentralWorld Food Court

Bangkok Shopping Malls Dining

Unlike the Central Food Hall to which it is annexed - a supermarket offering foods from every far-flung gastronomic corner - the 200-seat food court draws its inspiration from closer to home, serving a broad selection of pan-Asian foods at respectable prices. On the seventh floor of CentralWorld, its 19 stalls grill, steam, boil, fry and sear fresh ingredients for a steady stream of ravenous shoppers who make their way through the food court for the tasty, authentic fare on offer.

A modern interior with comfy, functional furnishings give this open-plan space an agreeable symmetry: row upon row of dining tables are neatly arranged across a wooden floor and a line of leather sofas by the floor-to-ceiling windows are suited to kicking back with friends in addition to just eating. The latter is best, giving you a classic Bangkok city view of Wat Pathumwanaram temple and Siam Paragon shopping mall rubbing up against each other in the distance.

Thai Flavours

A 10-strong rabble of open-kitchens to the right fits under a 'Thai flavour' banner. Expect everything from steaming bowls of 'guay-deow' (noodle soup) to traditional Thai curries, stewed pork legs to pan-fried noodles. There's also an a-la-carte kitchen that fuses Thai gastronomic traits - namely a sweat inducing kick - with international mainstays. Think spaghetti with tuna and hot basil. In the central food island you'll find spa foods, varied kinds of minced pork, satay snacks and, most enjoyably, a kitchen called Khunyai Thalab.

One of the unsung delights of the food court is being able to go eclectic, to indulge tummy temptations without prejudice or glances of disdain from the management. The motley mix allows you to do just that, with kitchens from Daikoku (Japanese), Winner House (Vietnamese), Old Malaya (Malaysian), Blue Light by Seefah (Chinese) and Taaj (Indian). Aside from tasting great, each dish is as elegantly presented as it is economically priced.

Sweet Temptations

If so inclined, round things off with something sweet. If not Bahn Moh's delightful sticky rice with sweet coconut and durian syrup (35 baht), then try a fruity fire extinguisher from Mrs Smoothie. A few slurps of Yo Yellow (peach, pineapple and yoghurt) or Mr Monkey (banana, strawberry and yoghurt) will ably sooth spice-seared mouths.

Central World food court is one of our absolute favourites because - in addition to the delicious food on offer - surfaces are clean, service ruthlessly efficient and a smart culinary credit card (a 1,000 baht license to gorge) politely removes any mention of money until departure. A classy addition to the city's food courts offerings.
