Soul Food Mahanakorn started off with a pretty simple idea: to serve authentic regional Thai food – mostly the sort eaten on the street – in a comfortable setting. Since dreaming up this joint we’ve changed things a bit – we’re part cocktail bar and part Thai restaurant, with a solid wine list too. We like to think we play pretty good music. And because we care about our food and where it comes from, we source many of our ingredients from small farms in the northeast of Thailand. Our rice is organic and fair trade, our meats free-range, and our menu is seasonal with daily specials. But enough about all that. It’s supposed to be satisfying, fun and delicious. An eating and drinking experience with some soul. That’s the point.
Great Chinese restaurant has been around for more than 40 years and is always packed. With its big round tables and familiar Cantonese dishes, the shophouse offers a typical heavy-on-the-red Chinese vibe.
