airplane – italian restaurant

situated on langsuan between soi 1 and 2, was once quite popular, especially among the social set that call themselves “trendy”, now it’s more of a quiet ordinary restaurant.

i revisted it again last night for a late dinner, their kitchen closes at 11pm. honestly what made me consider going was because while driving down langsuan i saw that they had outside seating. one of my favourite things about soi langsuan itself is that i get a sense of being away from all the hustle and bustle of bangkok. sure there’s random cars and tuktuks and motorcycles zipping past by you every now and then… but it works.

airplane itself was great, the food is standard italian, not spectacular but tasty in its own right (try the four seasons pizza, caprese salad [great dressing]), the service is good and the atmosphere itself was just right. it’s nothing fancy, honestly i didn’t even go inside to check out the decor or anything, just sat outside. tables outside are standard white table cloth, and very comfortable white leather(esque?) chairs. sofa-like seating also available at one or two tables.

a chance to sit outside with some friends enjoying food, drinking and smoking right in the middle of bangkok without excessively sweating comes by so rarely now. makes airplane a plus in my book.

    Strangly enough, Air Plane (not, as you say “airplane” have a big spot on Chic Channel (oh just dont ask how I know) and it looks very nice outside. The inside looks very, um, yellow.

    You mean to say the interior of every airplane isn’t yellow? Blasphemy!

    The place is called Air Plane – note the space. Not Airplane or Aeroplane. The owner probably thinks it’s a really cool play on words, or something.

    I do not believe we can expect “excessively sweaty” Teazor to understand the differences between Airplane, Aeroplane, Air Plane, air plane, airplane and aeroplane.
