Lily Fu’s: Pan-Asian bistro opens in Soi Sukhumvit 11

Soi Sukhumvit 11 recently welcomed a stylish new hang with some high-end Asian bites – and it’s open late.

By the brains behind some of Bangkok’s greatest hits like Quince, Sing Sing Theater, Oskar Bistro, and Gigi; Lily Fu’s recently opened inside the Mercure Hotel to serve Asian-inspired fusion bites. 

Stepping into Lily Fu’s, diners cannot miss the photogenic walls decorated with abacuses and retro candy boxes. The kitchen comes up with classic Chinese and Southeast Asian dishes made with inventive flair. For a starter, the must try is poached “larb style” sea bass (THB240) or heartier chow mein (THB170).

On the dim sum menu, Lily’s Purse (THB160) is a three-flavor dumpling of shrimp, black truffle, and spinach; for the purist, grab ha gao (THB125) and shoo mai (THB125). 

The bao, numbered one through six, run the gamut — Hong Kong, Hainan, Indonesia — but we highly recommend Bao #5 (THB250), Vietnamese-style beef with onion, ginger, and a “Sriracha-Hoisin” dark bean chili sauce on a fluffy white bao. 

Coming with a party of proper carnivores? The absolute must-try is the tomahawk (THB260/100g) of grilled Australian black angus with three sides. For dessert, there’s a chocolate tart (THB250) with chocolate chili ganache, sour cream cheese, and salted caramel, but for something a little less sweet and more creative there’s Lily’s Mango Sticky Rice (THB250), featuring mango, sticky rice berry, and coconut cream with a mango sorbet.

Expect classic but creative cocktails like Thai negroni (THB280) sticks out as a favorite, mixing Saneha gin with Campari, Chinese five spice, and 1757 rosso; the refreshingly tart Chaophraya (THB260) is Phraya rum, agave, lime, chili, and ginger. But there are also delightfully simple drinks to be had, like the Coconut Mojito (THB230) and the Mekhong Ice Coffee (THB240). Bottles of red wine start at THB1,180, or THB200 per glass.

Lily Fu’s is located on the lobby level of the Mercure Hotel in Soi Sukhumvit 11, which is reachable from BTS Nana. It’s open 8am until midnight every day.
