As mentioned earlier, Chocolate Ville has a large restaurant with remarkable food choices. To make your dining experience more convenient, here are 3 things you need to know beforehand.
1. Dine at the Riverside
First of all, there is only one restaurant in Chocolate Ville. But on the bright side, you are free to choose where to eat your food. You can opt at the riverside, outdoor, or indoor area. If you want breath-taking scenery, I highly recommend that you take your dinner at the riverside.
2. Food Options
The restaurant offers a wide range of food options, from local dishes to international cuisines. There also seafood, pasta, and pizza available. Or you can try some western food like German Ham Hock and Australian tenderloin steak.
To help you plan your budget ahead of time, here’s a copy of the restaurant menu you can use as a reference.
3. Make a Reservation in Advance
If you plan to visit during the weekend, it’s advisable that you reserve a table in advance. According to my friend who visited the park during the weekend, the dining seats get filled up pretty fast, especially after 6 PM.
In our case, me and my wife went to the park on a weekday, so the place is not very crowded. There were plenty of tables available.
However, I opted to make a reservation at the riverside to guarantee us a seat for our dinner at 7 PM. Through this, I was able to secure our preferred seat during our visit.
To guide you, there are 2 effective ways to reserve a table. The staff at Chocolate Ville can speak decent English, so nothing to worry about.
Option1: Make a phone call
To make a reservation via phone, you can use this number +66 81 921 2016. I recommend that you call at least one day ahead. You can follow what we did for convenience purposes.
First of all, I used a Thailand tourist SIM card to reserve a seat at the riverside. You can book the prepaid SIM card here and collect it at the airport.
By purchasing the prepaid SIM card online, it will help you save nearly 50%. Plus, the SIM already comes with preloaded 100 baht and unlimited internet.
Option 2: Send them a message by Facebook messenger
Another option is to check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/chocolateville/. Then, you can send them a message via messenger and make a reservation. Here’s a sample template you can use.
Hi, I would like to make a reservation for our dinner at Chocolate Ville this coming 21 Jan 2021 at 7:00 PM. Please reserve a table at the riverside, non-smoking area for 2 persons. Thank you.
Chocolate Ville Map
To assist you in navigating around the area, don’t forget to have a copy of the Chocolate Ville map above. And if you take a taxi or Grab, you’ll be dropped off at the main entrance of the park, which is No. 37 from the map.
The Chocolate Ville is open daily, from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
For a more convenient trip to Chocolate Ville, I will share 3 important tips.
1. Make sure to arrive at the park around 5 PM or 6 PM
It’s best that you reach the place between 5 PM to 6 PM. This way, you still have enough time to stroll around and take photos around the park.
2. Spend at least 3 hours exploring the park
The park is quite big and has a lot of beautiful spots. Hence, it’s suggested that you spend at least 3 hours touring around. This time duration is enough to cover all the must-see and must-do activities in the park.
3. Recommended places to visit
Other than going to Chocolate Ville, there are also fun Bangkok markets that are worth exploring. First on the list is the scenic Asiatique the Riverfront. The second one is the ever-vibrant Train Night Market Ratchada.
These two markets are known for their amazing variety of delicious foods and shopping options. Plus, you’ll love the relaxing atmosphere on both sites. Without a doubt, these two marketplaces are definitely worth the visit during your Bangkok holiday.
How to Go to Chocolate Ville in Bangkok
The best way of getting to Chocolate Ville from downtown Bangkok is by taxi or Grab. If you depart from Pratunam, it will cost about 300 Baht. A one-way trip takes around 35 minutes and bring you directly to the park.
There is no BTS station or MRT station close by, so taxi or Grab are the best method to reach there.
