Small private functions can also be held on the second floor. Prayer room is available, too. It opens from 10.00am to 10.00pm, Saturday to Thursday; closes on Friday.


Tomyam kung: hot and sour shrimp soup.
If you like the tomyam soup, you can purchase the homemade tomyam paste at THB80 per tub.

Phat phak ruam: stir fried mixed vegetable

Phat kaprao pla muek: stir fried squid with sweet basil leaves

Hi Lynn, I've always been a fan of Thai food, and I must say that the food at Usman are simply marvellous! Thank you for having this blog. It's quite interesting and very helpful. Keep up the good work! ;-)

Hana, the fastest way is by Taxi which costs about THB300. Since you're taking it from the airport you'll be charged extra THB50. Mind you that you have to bear the toll fees, too. The first one costs THB25 while the second one is THB45. All together about THB420.

Another option is to take the Airport Express which costs THB150 per person but I'm not sure if it goes to Baiyoke Sky. I know that it goes on Sukhumvit Road. But boarding a bus takes a little longer time.

Thanks Totenlots. I enjoy Thai food very much,too. I can never get tired of it esp. tomyam kung...he,he,he

hi lynn,

i must say that i totally love your blog! stumbled upon this post while i was trying to recall the name of a halal thai restaurant that i went to when i was in bangkok last year. i remember it's in Nana area, at an alley behind the main road. the owner is an african muslim, the workers are local thais. the food is amazing. best tomyam i ever tasted! the place looks a lot like Usman Restaurant, but i don't think they are the same. if you happen to know the place, will you please let me know? salam & hugs from malaysia!

p.s. i'll link your blog to mine ya?

Hi Dieya,
Yeah, I know that little restaurant. I used to go there a lot when I first got here. Not sure of the name but it's between Al-Hussain Rest. and Petra Rest. on Sukhumvit Soi 3/1.

Sure, you can link my blog to yours.

Fyi the Airport train is not in operation yet. Anyway the station is quite far from Silom Village Inn. You can take the Airport Express bus (Silom Line) on the first floor. It costs THB150 only per person.
Inform the driver that you are going to Silom Village Inn. The nearest masjid is at Silom Soi 20. There's another one at Silom Soi 13. During day time, there're Muslim ladies selling food just next to the masjid.

Ya betul. Makanan di Usman memang sangat sedap. Sangat berbaloi. Saya dah 20 kali datang, masih tak jemu. Mereka memasak ni, dari hati yg ikhlas untuk memberi tempat, kita yang muslim ni makan makanan halal masakan Thai di kota Bangkok ni.

Memang halal. Tanpa ragu.
