Inside Erawan Tea Room: Bangkok’s classic, albeit touristy, spot for afternoon tea

Visitors to Bangkok frequently elect to go to the Erawan shrine and then round off the day with a visit to the Tea Room above it. The tearoom evinces a moderately contemporary vibe with decor elements that borrow from Asian and English influences. As the name suggests, the Erawan Tea Room is noted for serving high tea and for its delicious tea beverage options, including hot and iced varieties, that arrive at the table unsweetened, but with a simple sweetener at the side.

Although the Erawan is a favorite tourist destination, it is also frequented by many locals. It may be for that reason that there is fortunately no attempt to curb the dishes served to suit a non-Thai palate. There are many traditional dishes available, beyond the room’s signature teas, including soups, salads and entrees, many of them spicy. The tearoom is located next to the Grand Hyatt Erawan, and is accessible through a connected passage.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Erawan Tea Room is on the second floor of the Erawan Bangkok mall, just above the Erawan Shrine.
  • The Tea Room, despite being a favorite tourist destination, is also a favorite of locals, who come for the traditional high tea and the delicious meal options.
  • Besides iced and hot teas, the Erawan Tea Room serves a variety of traditional Thai dishes, with no obvious curbing of spice to suit non-Thai palates.

“They offer a variety of unusual iced teas — being a tea room and all — all of which arrive unsweetened with a small container of simple syrup.”
