The afternoon tea at Lobby Salon, The Sukhothai Bangkok, is widely known as the ‘Chocolate Buffet‘. Don’t misunderstand that the afternoon tea at Lobby Salon serves only chocolate cakes and trays after trays of chocolate sweets. It is an afternoon tea buffet elegantly set in Lobby Salon, featuring not only chocolates and sweets but also scrumptious savouries. You may now wonder why it’s called the ‘Chocolate Buffet‘. Let Gourmet Bangkok unveil the legendary Chocolate Buffet at Lobby Salon to you all.
Why is it called the ‘Chocolate Buffet’?
The Chocolate Buffet at Lobby Salon is the only place in Bangkok that serves made-to-order liquid hot chocolates from the imported raw chocolates carefully selected by their experienced Executive Pastry Chef Laurent Ganguillet. These raw chocolates are from different regions of the world, carrying a great difference in terms of aroma, taste and cocoa intensity. Diners, with the help of Executive Pastry Chef Laurent, can try the raw chocolates and mix their preferred flavours to make a unique hot chocolate drink for themselves to enjoy. Selected raw chocolates will be gently melted over a low flame, a hot chocolate drink will be served with choices of whipped cream, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and/or cracked pepper on top.
The ambience of the chocolate buffet?
Lobby Salon is located on the ground floor of the hotel. Its elegant decor provides a perfect venue for a relaxing afternoon. What I especially like about the Chocolate Buffet at Lobby Salon is the sound of hammered dulcimer, which is being played by a lady in a traditional Thai costume throughout the buffet. The comforting sound of the hammered dulcimer quiets my soul and literally leads me into a comfortable afternoon. What is more chillaxing than sipping your favourite tea with delectable small bites of savouries and sweets?

The sweets and savouries are set in two separate seating areas. Premium tea and coffee are included in the Chocolate Buffet. We would recommend you to start with some savouries before indulging in the luxurious sweets and the must-try chocolate trolley for your unique hot chocolate drink.
Savouries feature Thai delicacies, Japanese sushi and premium western sandwiches.
Sweets feature the renowned chocolate pieces by The Sukhothai Hotel, cakes and scones.

Definitely! 25 Degrees is one of the best burger joints in Bangkok! The best one in Sathorn and Silom areas.
