The lounge’s restaurant serves food from NIPPON-TEI, a long-established Japanese restaurant with six branches Thailand, including one popular establishment in Bangkok.

The selection of food is also now much more extensive than before, and after a meal you can sit down to work at one of the new workstations or relax with a drink in one of the comfortable chairs – both of which offer an adjacent power socket and USB port for convenient charging of devices. There is also a new smoking area.
