A trendy community village in Ploenchit

Velaa Sindhorn Village is a trendy and luxurious community village on Langsuan Road in Bangkok. Velaa is part of the set of luxury hotels and condominiums recently built in this part of Bangkok, just next to the well known Lumpini Park. Ploenchit is becoming increasingly posh and what was rather the rundown part of this neighbourhood has become the most exclusive part of it. Velaa Sindhorn Village mostly focuses on a wide range of upmarket and excellent restaurants. Velaa means ‘Time’ in the Thai language, which explains why the last ‘a’ of the name is not an accent but a letter aligned like the moving number of a mechanical clock.

The place is so popular that at least three restaurants require booking in advance: Vaso Spanish Tapas, Rongsi Potchana Thai Restaurant and Petit Plats French Restaurant.


The Restaurants


Rongsi Potchana

Rongsi Potchana is without a doubt our favourite restaurant in Velaa. The food is excellent, the atmosphere lively, the service is fast and always friendly and efficient, and the price is good considering how expensive everything is in this village. For those in the know, Rongsi is part of a group of successful Thai restaurants, including Kub Kao Kap Pla. The restaurant has a garden area where pets are welcome.

Vaso Spanish Tapas Bar

Vaso is a very upmarket popular restaurant where customers sit around two central counters in two adjacent rooms to enjoy excellent tapas. Despite the high prices, the restaurant is always full, and reservations are required. There is only one separate table of four if you prefer (we do). Note that you will be seated at the counter, and your neighbour will be seated very close to you, which is not always to everyone’s taste.

The high price and fun decoration make it a popular Instagrammers playground people come as much to enjoy the food that takes tons of selfies, which can be a little surprising sometimes.

Teppen Yakiniku & Sushi

Teppen is a very popular Japanese yakiniku restaurant with a vast choice of dishes, including sushi, but the main reason people go there is always the ever-popular grill place in the middle of your table where you grill your meat, veggies or seafood. It brings the yakiniku atmosphere to Bangkok, and you could think you are in Japan, especially when the team great incoming customers with a loud ‘Irashaimase!’ (welcome!). It’s fun, tastes good and is reasonably priced; a good place to share with friends. It’s quite popular so consider booking to avoid waiting for a table.

Hoppe Coffee House

Hoppe Coffee House at Velaa Sindhorn Village

Hoppe looks like a coffee shop but is a small restaurant serving a mix of Western and Thai food. The food is good and well priced, and we order takeaway several times a week. There are only a few tables inside and three outside.

Cuisine: Western and Thai
Address: Unit B 108, Velaa Sindhorn Village, 87 Langsuan Rd, Bangkok 10330

Shabu Baru

Shabu Baru is the latest restaurant in the village, serving the ever-popular shabu in individual pots placed around a central counter instead of the usual central cooking pot shared by up to 4 guests. The place is beautiful, but the price is rather high, especially for meat, to compete with other shabu around town.

El Gaucho Langsuan

El Gaucho at Velaa Sindhorn Village

El Gaucho is well known in Bangkok for the main restaurant in Sukhumvit, next to Terminal 21 Shopping Mall. This new branch has only one vast room, but because of the high price. The choice of cuts is immense and maybe a bit intimidating at first, so if you are not familiar, don’t start with the most expensive meats; it can build up very fast. Side dishes are also surprisingly expensive.
