Ari is already known as a cool neighbourhood in Bangkok where you’ll see loads of photogenic cafes and eateries to drop by. Last year, we got the newly opened Gump’s Ari that settled down in the hood, and this year we’ve got one more!

What you can do here:

Besides the cute setting that’ll make you feel like you could be in Tokyo, you can expect to dine at authentic Thai diners serving regional cuisine, buffet restaurants, and at a beach-themed cafe.

1. Tropi Hoola

Tropi Hoola was a member of Gump’s Ari. Now, this tropical-themed cafe has upsized itself and added in many more interesting menu items at their new branch. 

When here, try their Basic Maple Croissant (฿159) and wash it all down with its signature Yakult Slurpee (฿99), a refreshing drink that comes with a creamy fruity scent.

Harn by Gao Cafe Nimman is a humble northern Thai restaurant, where you can get good snaps from every nook of the house. Here, start off with a grilled bread set that is best for brunch.

Next up, you can try their recommended authentic northern cuisine, which you can check out in-store. Because the restaurant is still very new in the community, you can expect loads more menu items to be coming soon.

3. Kobe King

If you’re into cafe hopping and meat dishes at the same time, you shouldn’t miss Kobe King, a Japanese BBQ restaurant.

All eaters can enjoy high-quality meat that surprisingly comes at pocket-friendly prices. Other meat choices like chicken and seafood items are also available as well.

Note that all visitors need to pay ฿50 for the admission fees.

Now that we cannot go to Japan anytime soon, dropping by and spending time at Ari Doi Street is another nice idea in the meantime.
