Emporium Mall Food Hall: Disappointing new Food Hall at Emporium Mall
Happily used the old food hall on a daily basis but the newly opened (Nov 2014) food hall disappoints. Firstly, prices are noticeably higher and then they slap on a 4.5% service charge at the checkout. Secondly, the open plan dining room has a high level of background noise which is made worse by a disco type sound system blasting out music I don't really want to hear over lunch. Thirdly, the nice view over Benjasiri Park and the cityscape has gone. Bye bye food hall - I'd rather walk out onto Soi Sukhumvit and eat better for half your prices..
Worth The Extra Price For Some Good Food
Popular with the Japanese and hi-so Thais, Emporium Food Court is at the higher end of Bangkok food court prices. The food court is rather tucked away on the 5th floor, but like all good things the search is worth it as the food is excellent. For you Vancouverites reading this there is a White Spot tucked away behind the Japanese restaurants.

THE EMPORIUM FOOD COURT
822 Sukhumvit Rd - Take the sky train to Phrom Phong
For first timers, go straight to the sixth floor, but upon arrival don’t mistake the restaurants for the food court.
The restaurants are expensive and lousy, walk past them to the food court which you should be able to see, or just follow the signs.
Like the MBK, the Emporium Food Court operates on the bought-value card system. Go to the cashier’s and buy a card for say 400 baht and see if you can do something that I’ve never been able to do – score a table overlooking one of the few green areas in Bangkok, Benjasiri Park, built for the Queen’s 60th birthday in 1992.
All of the usual offerings are here, that you will find in the previously mentioned food courts.
After leaving the cashier’s window turn left and the second stall on the right does one of the best Son Tams in Thailand.
A young guy there who told me his name was Phillip, probably because he thought I wouldn’t be able to pronounce his Thai name, works from 2 pm onwards, and he is the man to do you Son Tam.
Just stand there and tell him how much Papaya to add, the right amount of chili and lime juice and he will crush the living daylights out of the ingredients and present you with a Son Tam that you will remember forever.
The other stall is the second last one on the left past the Son Tam stall. The young lady here does the best oyster omelette, however, don’t expect to get this exquisite delight after 7 pm as she seems to almost regularly run out of the little delicious molluscs on a daily basis.
Once again, upon leaving, just present your card to the cashier, and any unused amount on the card will be refunded.
