Poolside on the 8th floor of the 5 Star Pathumwan Princess Hotel in Bangkok is Loop Italian Restaurant Terrace and Bar. The Pathumwan Princess hotel is conveniently connected to MBK shopping center, one of Bangkok's most popular shopping destinations and the BTS skytrain. When all that shopping works up your appetite be sure to head straight to Loop Italian for a light noon-time repast or an wonderful Italian dinner poolside on the terrace.
Loop Italian Restaurant Terrace and Bar at the Pathumwan Princess Hotel Bangkok features delicious rustic Italian creations from Chef du Cuisine Roberto. All ingredients are imported from Italy ensuring the best quality and taste. Loop is a wonderful spot to enjoy lunch on the shaded terrace while exploring Chef Roberto's gastronomic gifts from his native Italy.
There are only a handful of restaurants in Bangkok where one can enjoy dining alfresco at lunch time and fewer still where you can enjoy homestyle Italian cuisine at the same time. Situated next to the Pathumwan Princess' olympic size swimming pool, Loop's covered terrace enjoys cool breezes and fresh air perfect to enjoy a ice-cold beer or chilled glass of wine.
"Loop’s enticing menu, absolutely authentic, unmistakably modern yet romantically rustic, also pairs perfectly with an inspirational Italian and international wine list for the all-round Italian experience."

The Thaifoodies team took the advice of Chef Roberto and tried some of his personal favorites.
We started out with an incredible Salmon Tartare stuffed with capers and served with a sweet balsamic sauce. The salmon was SO VERY FRESH, this dish is perfect as a nice light start to your meal - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !
Loop's Signature dish is subtle combination of prawn, calamari, and scallops in a light tomato and olive oil sauce with homemade pasta. Baked in pizza dough to lock in the fantastic flavors. WE LOVED this dish - a MUST TRY!
Next up is of course pizza. A lovely Italian Milano salami pizza on scrumptions homemade dough. This pizza is so yummy, the smell of the fresh baked slightly chewy dough is heavenly. This creation is very well balanced and not too heavy on the stomach. ANOTHER personal favorite of the thaifoodies team.
Our last main was a tender Grilled Australian beef served with creamy mashed potatoes and a medley of summer vegetables with smoked cheese. Thebeef was tender and melted in our mouths. The summer Veggies and cheese was a wonderful surprise and so scrumptious!
We finished our meal with two light but very satisfying desserts. A citrus Tiramisu and a rustic green apple cake with vanilla gelato. A perfect ending to a fantastic lunch.
Loop Italian Restaurant Terrace and Bar is reasonably priced with dishes ranging between 200 - 900 baht, a great value for Italian Cuisine in a 5-Star hotel. Loop offers a good selection of wines to accompany your meal either by the glass or by bottle. Prices range from about 300 baht per glass to 1,500 per bottle - reasonable prices for Bangkok.
The thaifoodies team recommends Loop Italian Restaurant Terrace and bar especially if you are seeking a nice outdoor dining experience safe from the sun and heat of Bangkok. Service is friendly, fast and always with that amazing Thai smile. Head on over to Loop Restaurant and see for yourself...You'll thank us!
A big thank you to Chef Roberto and the entire Pathumwan Princess and Loop team for making us feel so very welcome.
