If u like meats, then I recommend the restaurant below.
That time my thai friends brought me to this place for dinner...great if u are a meat lover.
other than meats, also got seafood and veges for bbq...
price wise I think less than S$20 per pax...

King Kong Japanese Table BBQ (Eat-all-u-can until u puke...hehehe)
Address: Soi Lang Suan, Ploenchit Rd., Lumphini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330 Thailand
Phone number+66 (0) 2254 5177 (must reserve table coz always full, I heard from my Thai friends they will release table even if u are late for 10mins for your reservation...sleep.gif)

And yeah Somboon Seafood is another good choice :p

Just came back from 1 week work trip.

Since you staying in Yaowarat (chinatown), look for bird nest, shark fins and glass noodle crabs in those chinese restaurants (can't remember.

Go MBK for look look and platinum fashion mall (more for ladies clothing).

There is also rail service from airport to city. Not fast but cheaper than cab if you don't have much luggage.

Becareful of fake Somboon restaurant, especially when you take a cab. Some cabs might take you to the fake ones and you'll get carrot head by them.

My friend who's a fan of airplane models just came back from BKK and he took the train from airport to hotel.

His comments are :

1) No escalators up to train station, he and his wife gotta carry their stuff up.
2) The models are much ex than here, he often go to HKG to shop for these as it's cheaper.

Hehehe I think if u call on the actual day afternoon is ok, if u are going for dinner in the evening...
but to be safe maybe u can book 1 day in advance?
(Sorry I am not 100% sure coz I wasn't the one to do the reservation that time, I only in charge of going there and EAT EAT EAT)
Anyway it's not Japanese food as in Sashimi, Sushi hor..it's Table BBQ....over charcoal...not very smoky.... :P

Oh ya as Salmon had pointed out, do be careful of fake Somboon...
Check out the outlets (they have 5) on their website www.somboonseafood.com

I think it doesn't really matter where u stay, u can always go all over the place to eat coz taxi fares are cheap there :)
But most taxi drivers don't speak English, so it's better if u ask your hotel recept to write your destination in Thai on a piece of paper, and show to the cab driver...or some better hotels will actually speak to the driver to tell them where u wanna go...

If clubbing is your game, then go cheong at night at http://www.bangkok.c...tchadapisek.htm
I like Slim(R&B) & Flix(Electro/House) hehehe
