Besides shopping, the mall has a wide range of dining outlets that include local food and international cuisine housed in fancy restaurants and posh food courts such as Food Loft located on the top level offers a variety of freshly prepared gourmet dishes. This place is made up of kitchen “islands”, each with a different type of food available – there’s Thai, Italian, Vietnamese, Chinese and more. Thai food is still my favourite. You get a card with a barcode on it which gives you a 1000 baht credit-Just hand over the card every time you order something and pay as you leave, that’s simple. Personal service is important here and you will be served by helpful and friendly staff compared to other places.
