If you are vegetarian, Bangkok is probably the best city in the world. Veggie food of almost every cuisine is available. A google search will give you a listing. Or simply walk down Sukhumvit...

Thai food is overall just about the best food of all. Somtam or Papayasalad is so very refreshing and just a MUST to eat when in Bangkok. Either go for the real thing Isaarn style with fermented fish (palaa) and crabs or then for beginners rather the thai version with peanuts and no palaa and dried shrimps to replace the crab

Thai Food that I love most is Pad Thai. But Tom Kha Kai and Tom Yam Gong is really spicy and juice and aroy maak. You can search in every street around sukhumvit and suanlum. Oh don't forget to drink small coconut...have a nice trip.
