Heading out to Siam Paragon to snag some Christmas deals? Here’s 8 restaurants to check out while you are at it


What are the holidays for if not to stuff so much food into your mouth that your belt explodes? Although Thailand doesn’t go full-on Christmas with the gift-giving as the west, you will probably still find yourself in one of Bangkok’s mega-malls to take advantage of a deal or two, so why not grab a bite while you are there? Siam Paragon has revved up its dining options, and with Bangkok finally starting to feel like it is back to normal, here is what you can expect. 

Also, If you are a new visitor to Bangkok, don’t forget to register for your Tourist Card for extra discounts on food and more! You can sign up for one of those here. You can get between 5-30% off at participating restaurants and shops. Also, if you spend THB 800 you’ll get a THB 100 gift card from Dec 21, 2021, to Jan 22, 2022*.

Pronounced “Cee-degree,” Siam Paragon’s buzzing ground-floor cafe brings together celebrity chef Gaggan Anand, chef twins Thomas and Mathias Surhing, and Anupong “Pint” Kuttikul of sneaker house Carnival for a collaboration unlike any this city has seen. Together, they each bring a bit of what they do or love most to the table: good coffee, a Europe-spanning menu, and a fresh line of streetwear collection by Carnival that you can buy at the shop. 

Mozza by Cocotte

From the people behind Cocotte and Pesca, this Italian eatery serves the comfort crafted by Chef Samuele Alvisi, who cribbed the recipe for the delicious mangia fuoco pizza (burrata, nduja and ventricina sausage, chili, and garlic) from his grandmother. Chef Samuele used to be at London’s Michelin-starred Stefano Cavallini, but that does mean he’s afraid to dish out the crowd-pleasing pastas, salads and grilled dishes that you’ll find strewn across the menu—and we’re happy about that. Better yet? If you spend at least B1,500 at the restaurant you will get a free tiramisu worth B320—from now until Jan 14, 2022.

JUMBO Seafood

The Singaporean favorite finds a home at the glistening Siam Paragon mall, and as the name suggests it is a seafood paradise of sorts. There is a massive list of sea crabs, Alaskan king crabs, lobsters, rainbow lobsters and fish from across the world. To round things off, there are 12 different kinds of dipping sauces you can order with your food, like the brand’s signature child crab paste, sambai paste, honey pepper sauce and mocha paste to name a few. They also have dim-sum sets if you want to mix things up a bit. 

Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop

This Hong Kong import, which won a Michelin Bib Gourmand, brings over seven decades of congee and wonton noodle expertise to Bangkok’s fierce noodle battlefield. The wonton fillings here follow a strict 7:3 shrimp-pork ratio for that time-honored balance and succulent flavor that makes Hong Kong noodle shops so popular among Thai tourists. Congee is served piping hot and comes with a bunch of sides, like fish, pork, sliced beef, and meatballs. They practically brought the whole Hong Kong island over, too, with steaming barbecue, dim sum, and pastries.

Wang Jia Sha

Shanghai cuisine-specialist Wang Jia Sha started out in Hong Kong in 1945 and now has five branches across the island state. Here in Bangkok, the basket of five Shanghai-originated xiaolongbao steal the show thanks to a wrapping that’s super-thin and very well-cooked. Other dim sum items include pan-fried shrimp dumplings, pork wontons, fried pork baos and the cutely-presented persimmon-shaped custard lava buns. Another highlight is the dandan noodles (in a spicy, peanut paste-based soup) and crispy yet tender breaded Iberico pork chop—perfect eaten together.

If you have registered for a Tourist Card, you’ll get an extra 10% discount on the normal price of food (except on public holidays). 

Suki Masa

Operated by the team behind Sushi Masa, this restaurant specializes in crowd-pleasing sukiyaki and shabu, along with other Japanese dishes like sushi and gohan (rice topped with meat and raw egg). There’s also the A5 Wagyu beef set—if you really want melt-in-your-mouth texture. You can’t go wrong with the sukiyaki soup and highlight kurobuta pork set. The a la carte menu includes lots of good bites, too. 

If you have registered for a Tourist Card, you’ll get an extra 5% discount on the normal price of the bill. 

Tonchin Ramen

This popular global ramen brand already has branches in Japan, Shanghai, Taiwan, and New York, where it earned Bib Gourmand status from the Michelin guide in 2019. The name of the game here is Tokyo-style ramen (thing noodles, and a soy-seasoned chicken broth) at prices that won’t destroy your wallet come the holiday season. For newbies, try the Tokyo tonkatsu ramen, served with homemade noodles, tonkotsu broth, roasted pork belly, egg, bamboo shoot, and seaweed.


Who doesn’t like to round off a meal with a bit of ice cream? Quints comes to Siam Paragon by way of the United Kingdom, specializing in small-batch gelato with complex and varied flavors—with fun names like “Death by Chocolate”. If you are new, try the Chrysanthemum flavor, a blend of the aforementioned flower and cocoa. 

Sign up for your Tourist Card for extra discounts here. Youll get between 530% off at participating restaurants and shops. Also, you can earn a THB 100 credit when spending THB 800 at participating restaurants from Dec 21, 2021, to Jan 22, 2022*.
