Bangkok late-night food spots

If you’re someone who stays up late, you’ll know that one of the biggest struggles for night owls is when the late-night food cravings hit – be it for snacks or full-on main courses.

But don’t worry – Bangkok is a city that never sleeps, and Bangkok supper spots come aplenty. These places are sure won’t let you go to bed with an empty stomach. Here are 14 Bangkok late-night food spots that will quell your nighttime hunger pangs. Some shops are even open 24hrs!

1. Somyoth (สมยศ ข้าวต้มรอบดึก) — Late-night khao tom perfect for preventing a hangover

Khao tom (ข้าวต้ม) is Thailand’s answer to drunkenness-related issues. The rice soup dish is very similar to congee, but where you can still see individual grains of rice. It’s long been a light dish perfect for breakfast or a late-night snack, making it perfect for preventing the post-party next-day hangover. 

Somyoth (สมยศ) is the quintessential Thai open-air restaurant serving affordable, but unbelievably delicious dishes. If its mark of excellence is not obvious by the constant crowds despite the late hours, then Bib Gourmand might do it for you. It’s a classic Bangkok supper spot you’d wanna try.

Just head on down, get some rice soup and a main to go with it and you’re set.

If chicken rice is where your heart is at, then Go Ang Pratunam Chicken Rice is your go-to place. The restaurant has also been recognised by the Michelin Bib Gourmand in 2018 and 2019, so you know this late-night meal is going to be delish.

Inspired by the award-winning manga-turned-television drama of the same name, Shinya Shokudo (深夜食堂) is a small, unassuming izakaya tucked in between two shophouses. Much like its namesake, the small eatery is open into the late hours of the night.

The cosy shop feels like it’s been plucked out of a small alley in Japan, but maybe not as clean. The food, however, is exactly what you’d want from a place like this. It serves the classic Japanese dishes you’d find from a Japanese restaurant in Thailand with delicious meat skewers and a side of alcohol. 

The vibes are perfect for a late-night hangout with friends. Whether or not you and your friends end up like the eccentric customers of the eponymous manga is entirely up to you.

If coffee doesn’t keep your engine running late into the night, then perhaps a strong kick of spice will. Sabsudjai (แซ่บสุดใจ) literally means “as spicy as your heart desires” and is the name of a late-night Isaan eatery in Thong Lo.

But did you know that a lot of Japanese people also stay in the Isaan region because a lot of their factories are stationed there? That’s why you know that Sabsudjai has to be delivering some real authentic Isaan spice. 

Either way, you can’t go wrong here with their unreasonably reasonable prices for the upscale district or their authentically spicy Isaan taste.
