Named after the owner’s last name Praengpakwan, “Suan Pak Wan” is a garden restaurant in Khlong Hok that hopes to inject the verdancy of its central garden into every section of its establishment. Cozily nestled among verdant trees, this is where you will hear laughter and have good conversations while enjoying delicious food and the aroma of coffee.
Do This: Apart from the good food and the relaxing atmosphere, there are many other attractions and activities that visitors of all ages can enjoy, from a playground for kids and photo spots for teenagers to a flower garden for nature lovers and older people. In addition, the restaurant is also opening a modest conference space with a capacity for 30 people, perfect for events and parties in the garden.
Feel This: Because the garden is green all year round, Suan Pak Wan is the perfect hideaway for those looking to escape the urban chaos and get some fresh air, just a 1-hour drive away from Bangkok.
Eat This: Suan Pak Wan’s food is reminiscent of a home-cooked meal, with the star being somtam poo plara (green papaya salad with pickled crabs and fermented fish). Their menu also features dishes they have created that are made with staple ingredients found in any pantry, such as namprik plakrapong (canned fish chili paste), as well as all-time favorites that everyone in the family can enjoy like and pad thai haw kai (pad thai wrapped in egg).
Drink This: Set apart from the restaurant, the café caters to customers who’d like to savor their beverages and desserts while enjoying the scenery outside. To beat the heat, try their refreshing cold beverages and frappés like Matcha Strawberry, Yusu Thai Tea, White Malt Macchiato Frappé, and Double Chocolate Brownie Frappé.
Use This: All translucent roofs in the outdoor area are all made of translucent, heat-cut Shinkolite acrylic sheets, which do not only lend themselves perfectly to the modern and airy design of the space but also allow visitors to fully enjoy the lush green garden outside, no matter whether you are sitting inside or out in the open, fulfilling both aesthetic and functional needs.
