The Essentials:

Go beyond Thailand’s well-known dishes on this tuktuk journey through old-Bangkok at places you’d never find on your own. This tour will show you where the locals eat while we discover centuries-old regional cuisines of Thailand across 5 authentic stops, away from the tourists in Chinatown.


All food and drinks at a selection of sit-down restaurants, street food vendors, a local market, and a hidden riverside bar at sunset. You’ll get much more than a full meal!

Group Size

Small groups of 2-12 people per tour.

Start Location

This tour starts at Hua Lamphong MRT Station. An email will be sent with meeting location details immediately after booking.

Reservations cancelled 24 hours or more before your tour start time are fully refundable.

Dietary Requirements

This tour is not recommended for vegetarians, vegans, or gluten-free individuals. We will do our best to accommodate requests, but substitutions will be very limited. Please let us know prior to your tour date as same day requests cannot be guaranteed.


This is a tuktuk tour, but we will make two stops where you will be on your feet for approx 30 minutes each. This includes walking through small alleys in an artistic residential area and through a local market.

What You'll Do:

Meeting Location

This tour starts at the Hua Lamphong Subway Station, conveniently located on Bangkok’s MRT line. An email will be sent with meeting location details and directions immediately after booking.

Tom Yum Wontons

Chinese immigrants have significantly influenced Thai cuisine for generations, and these traditions are still popular today. This dish blends flavorful tom yum ingredients like lemongrass, galangal, and kaffir lime with crispy fried wontons. Served alongside a bowl of tom yum noodles, this perfect marriage of cuisine is the perfect way to start!

Discover Alleyways and a Riverside Bar at Sunset

This traditional area of Bangkok is made up of a maze of alleys that can only be explored by foot. We’ll walk through this hip neighborhood, dotted with street art and centuries-old temples, and find our way to a stunning riverside oasis with craft beer, pagoda views, and sunset vibes.

Street Food at a Local Market

Stroll through one of Bangkok’s oldest markets for an authentic glimpse into local street food culture. Discover popular central and southern Thai dishes like fried plantains, handmade lemongrass sausage, seasonal fruits, and more! Then visit a beloved auntie for her charcoal grilled satay skewers marinated in coconut milk, turmeric, and aromatic spices, then dipped in her homemade peanut sauce. 

See the City by Tuktuk

Fly through the city’s alleys (known locally as soi’s) and the historic neighborhoods of Bangkok by tuktuk as we navigate our way past iconic landmarks and to hidden gems. Introduced to the city in the 1960’s, these vehicles have become a symbol of Thai culture.

Northeastern Thai Dishes

Isan cuisine is celebrated for its robust flavors combining spicy, sour, and umami. At this long-standing restaurant, we’ll try minced pork with aromatic herbs (Laab), fresh papaya salad (Som Tum), fragrant sticky rice, and meatballs fried with lime leaves for a perfect blend of these traditional flavors.


For nearly a half-century, this hole in the wall has been serving Persian-influenced recipes that have been passed down for generations. Their hand-tossed roti flatbreads are filled with either sweet or salty ingredients…and we’ll try both! This final stop is located near Khaosan Road; your guide will help you get a taxi back to your hotel after the tour.

Plus More Surprises!

How do you know where to eat in the world's street food capital?

Bangkok is the perfect city of contrasts. Street food stalls outside Michelin restaurants, stilted homes alongside flashy high rises, and a melting pot of culinary influences that have evolved through the ages. Yet most people come to Thailand and eat the same thing they get at home: Pad Thai and Green Curry. But there’s so much more to offer…

On this tour, you’ll taste your way through time and try Thailand’s regional cuisine that makes up the country’s culinary identity. From Chinese immigrants to Northern Thai ethnic groups, our goal is to introduce dishes that are new to you, at places you’d never think to visit. Hop in our tuktuks and explore traditional neighborhoods and local markets, plus a splash of today’s hipster scene as well.

Frequently Asked Questions:

This is not a tasting tour, you should come hungry and you will get more than a full meal of food. If you need more, just let your guide know and we’ll get more, but usually guests cannot finish everything and you’ll want to make sure you pace yourself. We also provide bottled water during the tour, plus a craft beer at a riverside bar.

While we welcome everyone (this is so much more than a food tour, after all), this tour will be best enjoyed by those who are ready and willing to eat everything. If you can’t, we require your understanding that options will be limited during the tour.

We visit small family-run eateries that often specialize in one type of food or regional cuisine. Further, fish sauce is an essential ingredient in Thai cuisine and replaces salt in almost every dish. Substitutions for special requests are limited at each stop, and guests with those requests will not be able to enjoy the same dishes as others. 

This tour is not recommended for anyone with severe allergies to common foods as we cannot guarantee the absence of those foods or that cross-contamination won’t occur.

You’ll have the opportunity to provide your dietary requirements during the booking process. Same day requests cannot be guaranteed.

While this is a tuktuk tour, there are a couple areas that we explore by foot. We’ll spend about 20 minutes exploring by foot in a traditional neighborhood dotted with street art and centuries-old temples to find our 2nd stop. We’ll also spend about 30 minutes on our feet at our 3rd stop while we explore a local bustling market and grab a bunch of food along the way. 

Our child pricing is valid for ages 4 through 15. Children ages 3 and under are free (and will need to sit on your lap in the tuktuk). 

The tour starts at 5pm at Hua Lamphong Subway Station, conveniently located on Bangkok’s MRT underground line. You’ll get the exact address, directions, and transportation details immediately after booking.

The tour ends at our last stop, which is near to Khaosan Road. There are plenty of opportunities for you to explore the area on your own after the tour, or your guide can assist you in getting a ride back to your hotel.

Our minimum is 2 and maximum is 12. There’s no flag to follow, or megaphone, or tacky uniforms. It’s small enough to be intimate, but big enough to get away with trying several dishes at each stop. Bottom line is, you’ll follow the guide through a super-local experience and make friends along the way.

Private tours can be arranged, by request, for an additional fee.

All of our tours are rain-or-shine, so we suggest you dress for the weather. If rain is possible, an umbrella, along with shoes that can get wet, is a good idea. In rare cases of extreme weather, your guide will cancel the tour and provide a full refund.

Yes we do! If you would like to book a private tour for you and/or your group, contact us and we’ll be happy to organize this for you. Please keep in mind that private tours do incur an additional fee since our availability is limited each day. 

Yes! You’ll get a promo code in your confirmation email that will give you a 10% discount on all future Lost Plate tours. It doesn’t matter if the tour is in the same city or a different city, we want to keep feeding you as long as you let us. Also, children ages 4 through 15 receive a discount on all tours (3 & under are free).

Bookings canceled 24 hours or more before your tour are fully refundable (100% refund). Bookings canceled within 24 hours notice are not refundable. If you would like to reschedule your tour with less than 24 hours notice, we will need to charge 50% of your total since we are unable to fill your spots at short notice.
