Central Food Mall

On the top floor of Central Department Store is an air-conditioned restaurant where you can purchase a multitude of different dishes. It is on the very top floor and there is an entrance near to the cinema and to the Kodak film shop.

The way to purchase your dishes may not be immediately obvious but it soon makes sense.

1) Purchase a credit card from the cashiers at the entrance - 500 Baht will be plenty.

2) When you purchase an item give the card to the cook and they will swipe it and debit money from the card.

3) When you leave simply return the card to the cashier and any money back will be returned to you.

There is a plethora of choices of Thai dishes for you to have and it is worth walking up and down to have a look at them. There are some Western dishes but I have never chosen one.

In the middle of the auditorium there are stands which have a very large selection of drinks for you to choose from; my favourite being the coconut ice - but be careful not to grip the plastic beakers too hard - they spill and make a mess.

Knifes and forks are available around the seating area - simply dip them in the hot water to clean them?

A convenient place to have something to eat but not to everybody's taste - in more ways than one!
