Hello, everyone I am Chifumi Maeda, a Japanese female president living in Bangkok.
Thank you, guys, for visiting this
“True comments from Japanese female presidents living in Thailand” blog.
In the middle of Sathorn Area, there exist a very magnificent garden and waterfall
Today, I want to take you to a very fashionable café with garden here
in heart of Thailand, the Baan Suan Sathorn,.
Since the COVID pandemic hit us all over the word,
schools had to shut down and office workers had to Work From Home and most likely as the result
roads are seeing not much of traffic jams as it used to be.
My home is on Yanakart Rd. And I have to go on highway to get to Sukhumvit 42 Rd.
where my office is but as I don’t need to get on highway anymore
and use normal road as they are smoothly running.
I was passing road in front of this place,
where I am going to talk about today every day,
the Baan Suan Sathorn but I didn’t bother finding out what the place was for.
But one time my 6th sense told me that may be it was a restaurant,
I’ve decided to go in to the place to check it out what the place really is.
I parked my car at the large parking space from whatever the place may be and went inside…
Oh My God!
There was a view of garden well taken care of and the lake had Japanese Koi Carps swimming here
and there and although it was an artificial garden grass,
they have a waterfall in the middle of Sathorn. It was a café. Very fashionable café it was.
This place is located somewhere in between Sathorn Rd., Rama 4 Rd, and Rama 3 Rd.
in a residential area between the valleys of buildings nearby the highway
where you would never come if you weren’t living in the neighborhood.
If you didn’t know what stands in that neighborhood you will not have thought of coming anywhere near and even
if knew the existence of this hidden paradise like garden and searched
how to get there by Google Map, the roads around are so tricky that getting there will be a task.
If someone who knew the place took you there after the sundown,
there are only residential houses and apartment buildings
that you may not be feeling at ease as it is so dark roads that you have to walk to make it there.
The place looks like someone’s residence that has been renovated.
As you can see here, the ceiling is so high and is a relaxing space.
And the windows are with stained glasses.
Just come and take a seat here.
The beautiful view from the window looking at the waterfall far away will mesmerize you for sure.
And it is very unlikely that any customer here will complain for air conditioning being too cold.
It was lunch-time when I visited there and had “Baan Suan Sathorn Pizza” for lunch.
It is quite large pizza and the price is 350 baht.
For a restaurant of this type, the price I must say is very reasonable.
They serve Thai as well as Western foods and both come in quite a volume.
Foods they serve are not salty at all and is flavored with a gentle taste.
As this place is a café, coffee is a must order item.
They prepare coffee in a syphon coffee maker
or what you call an vacuum coffee maker in English.
(↓I take video, but I speak in Japanese… Sorry…)
The place is open from 8:30 in the morning so if you want to have a relaxing start for your weekend or holiday,
I would recommend starting the day here.
In the dry season, it would be nice, I think, to sit at the terrace with a glass of wine and enjoy the garden view.
The pandemic is preventing us from going away on a trip
therefore it could be very nice to visit this place to feel away from home feeling.
