• The V8 Diner – Bangkok’s only 1950’s American Diner

    We were hooking it along Sukhumvit and thought to pop into Sunrise Tacos for Mexican food. When we arrived we found a new American restaurant called the V8 Diner. The Sunrise Taco's parking lot had been replaced with tables and chairs for this new eater and inside seating is also available. I am told that half of the tables are for Sunrise and the other half is for the V8 Diner. I am also told the V8 and Sunrise are not affiliated. This struck me as odd as both employ staff from the Philippines and they are sharing eating space. But whatever, if Greg really does have both places wants to keep it mum, then that is his business!
    We got some Cheeseburgers, fries, Buffalo wings, a salad and some cokes and it was a pretty decent meal for under 600 baht. You can also dine inside and sh0ot some pool if you so desire. The staff is friendly enough, the service was pretty quick and you can get some quality people watching in on Sukumvit Road for free entertainment.

    V8Diner Location: Slightly set back from Sukhumvit Road you are sure to see the bright lights of the V8 Diner and the hot rod car suspended 5 meters in the air!

    By Taxi: Located between Times Square and Sukhumvit Soi 12.

    By Skytrain/BTS: BTS to Asoke station or the MRT to Sukhumvit station and crossing the overpass, West towards Nana. Walk past the Sheraton hotel, Times Square and you will arrive at V8 American Diner set back off Sukhumvit Road, just look for the rotating Hot Rod positioned 5m in the air!
