Turkey day is nearly here, and this year’s celebration is shaping up to be more robust than what took place in 2020 and 2021. With fewer tourists and a smaller expat community, pumpkin pie, stuffing and the like were harder to come by in the Thai capital during COVID times. It will be much easier to celebrate a Bangkok Thanksgiving in 2022.
Most of the city’s 5-star hotels will be doing something on November 24 and, as you would expect, these can be pricy. If you’d prefer a holiday meal that’s a bit more affordable, a few eateries have you covered.
Here are a few spots where you can eat some turkey, tinker with your fantasy football lineup before the games and celebrate a Bangkok Thanksgiving in 2022.
Places to enjoy a Bangkok Thanksgiving in 2022
Bourbon Street Bangkok
Bourbon Street is arguably the place to go for a proper Bangkok Thanksgiving in 2022. The buffet lineup is deeper than Georgia’s defense while the price of THB999 can’t be beat. The only downside is that no reservations are taken after 4pm which means you may be waiting awhile for a seat if you don’t get there early. It’s still worth it though.
57th Street at Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit
For one-night only, 57th Street at Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit will have some Thanksgiving favorites alongside their usual buffet fare. The food is good and having the other international cuisine is great if your Thai partner is confused by things like cranberry sauce. Early pricing is THB1590 without drinks or THB2590 for free flow.
VIU at The St. Regis Bangkok
This is another 5-star buffet serving turkey classics with all the trimmings alongside a full international spread. The THB2,800 per person price tag may seem steep, but those who have dined here say it is more than worth it.
This popular BBQ joint feels like America. And while the buffalo wings here are famous, they do a mean Thanksgiving dinner as well. A nice buffet spread of the usual offerings alongside some other items, such as crab cakes and char-grilled salmon, make it well worth the THB1100.
Sunrise Tacos delivers
Don’t feel like going out? Sunrise Tacos will bring a Thanksgiving feast to your door. You can order half or whole turkey packages that come with mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls and your choice of pie. Prices start at THB4,475 and can be dropped off ready to eat or chilled for you to heat up before mealtime.
