Not sure why everybody is praising this place, it is just bland cheap food. Maybe if you haven't eaten in a week sure I can see how someone would be saying that its the best they ever had. Otherwise, this place is just about the same as any other food court in Thailand, no need to make a special trip for it. Prices are reasonable and cheap but lets not get carried away. a hot dog at 7-11 is also cheap!
for those that want to check it out, take the BTS to national stadium. The BTS exit directly connects to the MBK building. Goto the 6th floor (don't be fooled by the food court on the 5th floor, that one is average also)
Favorite Dish: none in particular.
After a great and CHEAP foot massage, it was great to find out that there was a halal stall in the MBK foodcourt.
Initially, went to the wrong eating place (there are many food places in MBK)but went down to the ground floor to ask the information counter. She told us the floor and we found it in a jiffy.
Favorite Dish: The rice and curry was nice. I tried the chicken soup too. It was ok. But the food was cheap.
Was a bit adventurous, so tried the glutinous rice with mango. It was superb. But couldn't finish the large portion.
While you're shopping at MBK don't forget to go all the way up to the 6th floor. Waiting up here for you is the food court. What a great place to eat!
Once we figured out the coupon system there was no stopping us. The minimum amount to buy as you enter the food court is 100baht, this in turn gets exchanged for whatever food you fancy. Great idea as the food handlers don't need to touch money.
We wandered around looking very much out of place (no other westerners to be seen), not sure what half of the food was! But that didn't stop us from enjoying a wonderful meal! In fact we liked it so much we went back on another day to try some more.
We thought everything so cheap, no complaints from us.
Don't forget to cash in your coupons on your way out if you didn't spend them all.
Loads of different food available at the food court. If u think the food court food don't suit u, there are loads of restuarants available too!
Everything starts from 25 baht onwards (for a bowl of soup!)
Favorite Dish: Love their pork noodle soup with chillis!
Really busy cafe where you can choose a huge variety of regional and international food from many different counters. No frills, nothing fancy but good food served cheap and fast.
Before you start, you need to locate the coupon booth where you buy coupons for your food - you don't pay for the meals at the counters. I guess this increases the hygeine and reduces the waiting time.
100 bhat (about $3) will provide you with a vast amount of food, but if you don't spend all your coupons you can swap them back to cash - just make sure you do it the same day as they are only valid for the day of purchase.
Once you have your vouchers, have a good look at all the different counters to see what is available - lots of local food, plus Indian, italian, salads etc. Simply hand over vouchers to the value of the food you want, and take your dish.
Favorite Dish: The fried chicken was great - very tender, juicy, succulent and fresh. It was served with rice, a little salad and a bowl of broth. The counters also have a range of sauces and condiments if you want to spice things up a bit.
Once you have your meal, next move is to find a free table - no always easy!
This is a great choice if you are in a hurry, but don't want any of that golden arches rubbish - healthy, fast and incredibly cheap.
Up on the 6th floor of the MBK shopping centre is the Food Court. As is common in most foodcourts in Bangkok this works on the voucher system. You buy vouchers at one of the voucher outlets up to whatevere value you want, and given the prices here you won't need to spend that much. You then use these vouchers to pay for the food and drink at one of the many sellers, then you redeem what vouchers you have left at the end at the special counter for voucher redemption.
The choice of food is massive including noodles, rice, Chinese, soups and many others (including other Thai foods). We usually have a noodle soup with beef or chicken which you can make as spicey as you like. Delicious.
If you take beef, you are in for a treat.
The beef soup was so tasty and the beef slices are so tender.
where can you find such a dish and how much is it? MBK Food Court for 40THB.
Bangkok is famous for birdsnet soup.
For this trip, i did not head down to chinatown.
Found the birdsnest soup at MBK food court and selling only for 50THB a bowl. You may have it either hot or cold.
Birdsnest soup is known to be a beauty supplement. but i dont think just a bowl will help;p
I didnt know i will get such great response when i asked where can i get sharksfin soup and birdsnest soup.
If you wish to save the sharks then go for fish maw soup. anyway its the soup that is nice and the sharks fin by itself is tasteless.
If you would like to go for high quality sharksfin soup, head for Siam Square area. There are a few restaurants for u to choose from.
The famous one is Scala. Price of sharksfin soup really depends on the quality of the fin.
Cheap sharksfin soup of 150THB can be found at MBK Food Court. Chatuchak Market sells double the price at 300THB.
Lot of variety of excellent food at MBK Food Court at Level 6. Be sure to purchase your cupon at the counter. Unused cupon can be refunded at the refund counter.
I love the Pad Thai (35THB), Fish maw Soup (80THB), Birds Nest Soup (50THB), Papaya Salad (40THB), Beef Soup (40THB).
All the food are excellent. Cheap and good.
