of eating places can be basically divided as follows:

is full of restaurants -- restaurants of every style of
food: Thai, Chinese, Japanese, European, Indian, Arabian,
etc. To give you an idea, you can find more restaurants
in the following areas in Bangkok -- Yaowarat, Sukhumvit,
Silom, Phloenchit, Ratchadamri, Lang Suan, and Pin Klao.
Generally prices are reasonable.
Most middle and first- class hotels have at least one
restaurant that offers Thai, Chinese and European menus.

Plazas / Department Stores
A cheap and convenient place to eat is the food centre
in any department stores and shopping plazas.
There many standard Thai and Chinese dishes are offered
at the average price of 30-40 baht per dish. You
can also find leading franchise fast food shops in
these shopping centres.
The areas where many shopping plazas are located are
Siam Square, Phloenchit, Silom and Sukhumvit.
& Rice Shops / Noodle Shops
Curry & rice shops and noodle shops can be found
in every district in Bangkok, especially in business
areas. The food prices are quite cheap though only
limited choices are offered.
In Bangkok you can find sidewalk food stalls scattered
around on the pavements and in the lanes. Although
they are cheap places to eat, the hygienic conditions
of some of them may not be up to international standards
and thus may cause problems to your stomach.
