Gentlemen, leave the ladies to browse and they will shop to their hearts delight, just arrange to meet them at a designated location in a couple of hours or for lunch to take the shopping bags before they embark on a second sortie.

With all that walking, fun and entertainment you will need to stop on a frequent basis during the day to refuel and take on supplies and ONESIAM offers a host of coffee stops, dining and afternoon tea opportunities. Check out Charna, inspired by Thai local house’s balcony on the 2nd floor, Siam Center, with healthy food of organic ingredients delivered from trusted farms under the concept of “feel good food”. Or the famous Taiwanese original bubble tea store “Coco Fresh Tea & Juice”. To eat there is every cuisine known to man, but we settled for Jamie’s Italian Restaurant on G Floor, Siam Discovery from world acclaimed British chef Jamie Oliver. The menu was varied and suited all palates and ages, the food was delicious and they had even adapted some of the dishes to appeal to local tastes. The table was full of signature dishes which included cured salmon, roasted shellfish, crab, avocado bruschetta with mayonnaise. Pizzas, kinds of pasta and grilled dishes of perfectly cooked fish and meat. The children had smoothies, the ladies talked through the spritzers and the men enjoyed a mix of imported beers and wine. A good time was had by all!
