What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

You can pretty much find anything here if you are willing to travel into the city or pay higher prices. Western food tends to be expensive here (read typical American prices which are much higher than buying Thai food). Out here in the suburbs we've got a Mexican restaurant, several Italian, your basic fast food (McDonalds and Burger King), sushi, Indian, and a few Western sandwich shops/delis. Downtown you can find options for any cusine. - Aug 2019


Food panda is an app to download. Tons of restaurants listed. Also, ChefXP is another food delivery service and sometimes more reliable than Food Panda. - Jun 2018


Everything and anything you could possibly imagine. Excellent food scene, home delivery through Food Panda. High-end, casual dining, street food...it's all here in Bangkok. - Apr 2017


Bangkok pretty much has everything, and FoodPanda delivers all over the city. Malls galore with food options galore. Street food is ubiquitous but the usual caveats apply--be careful about those. - Nov 2016


Everything you can think of except Taco Bell, and they all deliver. - Aug 2015


All major U.S. fast food chains are available, however, why would you want to eat that when you could eat delicious Thai food for about half the cost. Cost for meal at McDonald's is comparable, if not slightly cheaper than the U.S. - Aug 2014


Lots of decent restaurants everywhere and lots of fast food (vendors on every open space on the street). American fast food is also available in any of the many malls and elsewhere. Costs range from US$1 to US$10/person. - May 2014


All kinds and all ranges of price. Indian food and Korean food are expensive and not as good as in Northern Virginia. Street food is maybe the most overrated thing about Bangkok. Once you start noticing the rats, lack of running water near the carts--people washing street cart dishes in filthy park ponds, lack of refrigeration, and car exhaust piling onto the Bangkok street food, you kind of wonder why everyone isn't dropping dead from eating it. - Oct 2013


All of them. And most of them deliver! - Jul 2013


Loads of them -- every price and every type. A fantastic street meal will cost around $2, and a New Year's Eve Lobster dinner will cost $200. - Jun 2013


Whatever you want. - Jul 2012


Everything! You can eat Thai food for under $2, but expect to pay US prices when you want a US fine dining experience. - Oct 2011


Fast food is widely available. MacDonald's, KFC, and Burger King are all found here. Thailand has a huge food culture. Decent restaurants from every area of the world are available, but, when in Rome, eat Thai food. - Aug 2011


Everything you have in the US you have here. McD's, Starbucks, KFC, Baskin Robbins, Burger King, Cinnabon, etc... - Jul 2011


Tons. (McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, Subway, 7-11 everywhere). They'll deliver it to your door, usually hot, though I'll choose Thai over that any day! - Feb 2011


American fast food like Subway, McDonald's, KFC, and Burger King are easily available and even deliver by motorbike. Lots of Middle Eastern, Indian, Italian, French, a few Mexican restaurants, and of course Thai. Many fancy restaurants in hotels which offer big buffets and extensive menus. - May 2010


Food is amazing here. You have Food-To-Go. This is an amazing book that allows you to order takeout from many restaurants at once (very family friendly). Street food is good and normally won't make you sick. Restaurants are excellent and cheap. Food is a major plus to living here. - Apr 2010


lots of american fast food available--mcdonalds, pizza hut, kfc, dunkin donuts, burger king.cheaper than in america, but expensive compared to thai foods - Jan 2010


When it comes to American "fast food", the Thais have learned to embrace both KFC and McDonald's, which are conveniently located on every second street corner, along with Starbucks. Pretty much all of the fast food outlets that are in the States, can be found here. BUT....there's always an exception right? No Taco Bell-drats! But, on the plus side, all of the fast food chains deliver, in 30 minutes or less. You can't beat that :)- As for restaurants (non-fast-food) - Bangkok has it all. Want Sushi at 2 a.m.? No problem. Have a hankering for a "bloom'n onion"? There's an Outback Steak House. And then of course there's all of that terrific Thai food at every turn. Whatever your palate is craving, be it borsch or enchiladas, it's all here at your finger tips. - Jul 2009


Almost everything, cheaper than the States. - Apr 2009


Every single one. - Feb 2009
