One of the most gay-popular restaurants in Silom, with a prime location next to the BTS skytrain exit and just a couple of minutes’ walk from the main gay bars and clubs.

Wine Connection at Silom Complex serves an extensive menu of Thai and Western food (including steaks, pastas) plus a large selection of wine. The outdoor patio seats are great for people-watching.

Busy during peak times, so expect a short wait, particularly if you want an indoor, air-conditioned table.
