We usually use public transport to get around Bangkok, including the BRT, which is a bus that has dedicated lanes. It’s great for exploring the less visited areas of Bangkok. We often get off at random stations to have a look around, which is how we discovered the Tree On 3 shopping mall, which has an excellent food court.
Tree On 3 is a small, renovated shopping mall on Rama 3 Road that’s conveniently located right next to Charoenrat BRT station (see Bangkok BRT guide for details). This mall has a range of restaurants, with a popular food court at the basement level.
The vegan food stall is easy to find, and the food always looks freshly cooked. There is usually a choice of 8 hot dishes that can be served with rice. They also have cooked to order noodles available.
The choice of dishes changes every day, so you won’t get bored with the food, even if you come here often.
The prices are typical for a food court, with one dish and rice costing 35 baht, two dishes costing 45 baht and three costing 50 baht. You get big portions as well.
On the first floor of the mall there is a MaxValu supermarket (see Bangkok Supermarket Guide) that has a small food court at the back of the store. This also has vegan food available, and they have a menu that’s available in both Thai and English. There is quite a large choice of cook to order food available.
This mall has one of Bangkok’s largest Starbucks, and there is also an Amazon Cafe outlet at basement level.
The mall is just across the road from Montien Hotel Bangkok, which is a great hotel that overlooks the Chao Phraya River.
