Sandwiched between Thonglor live music venue Studio Lam and Homeburg, Hoi – Chinese Izakaya can be accessed via a sort of hidden entrance in the alleyway. Once you find it, make your way upstairs to an industrial-style loft that takes on an izakaya vibe, decked out with black tables, gray splattered walls, and views of the street below.
Don’t expect giant portions here. The food is meant to be shared among small groups – almost tapas-like. Starters include fried golden needle mushrooms (THB98), Sichuan-style hot and sour soup (THB138), and the popular moutai “drunken” chicken (THB168) cooked in herbaceous broth.
Other filling options include prawns slathered with vibrant chili sauce (THB198), wok-fried tofu with black pepper sauce (THB118), and the fall-off-the-bone beef shank claypot rice (THB168) made with Thai-French beef. Pair these with their stir-fried green beans topped with crispy garlic and fresh chili (THB118).
Hoi Chinese Izakaya is in Soi Sukhumvit 51 and just a few minutes walk from BTS Thong Lo. It is open for dine-in and available for delivery via Lineman.
