It's getting more and more difficult to find cheap, no-frills restaurants in Bangkok, so it's reassuring there are still a few places like Suda where you can fill up on classic Thai dishes such as tom yam kung (spicy soup with shrimps) and gai pat med mamuan (chicken fried with cashew nuts). It's not exactly gourmet food, there's no emphasis on presentation, and diners eat on plastic chairs in an open-sided space (no air-con), but at least prices are reasonable and service is friendly. It's very popular with local office workers and tourists looking for a cheap meal, and the convenient location is just a few steps from Asok BTS.
