Bamee Slow

Arguably the best egg noodles in Bangkok, Bamee Slow has built up a large cult following amongst the locals. Its been nicknamed Bamee Slow by the locals because the queue is infamously long and you can expect to wait up to an hour to get your amazing bowl of noodles. We can assure you its worth the wait! They only open at 8pm and are open well into the night, meaning it’s the perfect supper spot after drinks and clubbing.
