Shopping Centre
“La Villa at Ari is one of Bangkok’s Best Mini Malls and Restaurant Areas. One of young-adult and office worker favorite places to stop off to grocery shop and to eat is La Villa at Ari – one of Bangkok’s trendy shopping and restaurant areas. La Villa is a three-storey open air shopping center has become the area’s most popular places to be because of its incredible location right next to Ari BTS sky train station. Check out Fuji, my favorite Japanese chain restaurant. La Villa has a big one, which is wonderful as there is rarely a wait, service is good and the food is delicious. Also, don’t miss eating at Greyhound Cafe, with its fusion food, or at Ka Nom (Thai for ‘dessert’), which not only sells the best Thai custards and pastries, but also has amazing sausage rolls, Chinese deep fried pancakes and a good green curry. On the second floor, you will find a couple of grill-it-yourself restaurants, which are superb, an American-style pizza place and, of course, ‘After You’, with desserts that rival anything made in Paris.”
