Halal food at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok

If you do feel hungry when you're at the airport, not to worry as you can get halal food here. The halal food in Suvarnabhumi airport is available in two different areas:

1. Between Boarding Gate E and F:
It's definitely over-priced here.

Canadian Pizza (Halal) is also available here.

2. On Level One, next to gate 8.
This is a foodcourt called the Magic Food Point. The price of food sold here is very reasonable as it caters for the airport staff. You need to buy coupons when buying food here.

If you turn left once you enter the foodcourt, you'll see the coupon counter. Walk past the counter and you'll see a halal dessert counter.

At the end of the dessert counter, you'll see a signage leading you to a small alley where another halal food stall is. This stall serves briyani rice, roti and also murtabak.

Musolla is available on Level 3. Friday prayers are performed here, too.

Click on map to en
Raan Kwaytiaw Pla (Fish Noodle Shop)
This food shop is very special as it sells only fish based food including rice and noodles. It's located on Phattanakarn Soi 23. Get on the Phattanakarn Road and turn into Soi 53. The shop is on the left, about 200m from the main road. Look out for the yellow signage with the picture of star and moon on it, as everything is written in Thai. If you're coming from the airport, turn into Krungthep Kreeta Road as it's the same road at Phattanakarn Soi 53. In this case the shop is on your right.

I got this from a Muslim lady vendor two doors away from the fish shop. The sweet mango with glutinous rice is marvelous.
