Very bad service! They cheat you when you pay - keep away! If you choose to go anyway - only pay the exact amount - they dont pay back the correct amount and they make a scene if you complain!

Don’t go, especially alone. They change your bill from 2000thb to 4000thb. There’s loads of girls working there, and they are constantly whining you to buy them drinks. And all the time somebody takes your bill, and they add there whatever they like. Suddenly, it...More

With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls
lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll
rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While
the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of
entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys)
where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for
a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and
soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's
