This is a little out of order, but anyways….to the Thai lounge. So basically after spending 6 hours in the SilverKris Lounge in terminal 3, I actually headed to the SilverKris Lounge in T2, but for some reason had this lounge before in the lineup of reviews. The Thai lounge actually only opened about an hour and a half before our flight was to board, so it made sense to visit this lounge last. This lounge is located on the upper floor along the walk between the C and D gates in T1. Next to the Thai lounges on this floor are also the British Airways First and Business Lounge and the Qantas First and Business Lounge, which I may or may not have time to visit on the way back.
Upon walking in, there was an agent to check my boarding pass and let me through to the lounge. After getting boarding pass checked, this is what you see turning right. First thing I noted, the furniture was all worn and dates for sure.
Below is a magazine rack to the right with some seats to the left.
There were convenient international power ports and USB ports on the floor near the seats in the picture above.
If you walk forward and turn right, you reach the food area and this high top seating area with power ports there as well.
We’ll get to the food soon.
Through the lounge there was more seats and a good variety. There were couple seats, individual seats, couches, and private areas which we’ll look at as well. Note on the floor below the power ports are there as well.
Below are the “private” seats I was talking about. Typically these seat 4, but I alone occupied one of those areas. But spacing was not an issue because the only passengers in this lounge seemed to be the premium cabin passengers from my flight.
There was a divider and behind that there was more pair seats, quad seats, and a planter.
Here is what one of those private seating areas look like. And again, note the power ports and USB ports at the end of the seats on the floor alone the wall.
Now to the food.
Here is a coffee machine.
Then there were some teas.
Then there were instant noodles which I honestly never want to see in a lounge.
There were some beverages in the fridge.
There was a set up of some alcoholic beverages and juices.
And some condiments to go with the drinks
And a box of ice cubes.
Then there were some banana muffins.
And some wrapped sandwiches
Then there was a Thai layered sweet. It was very very good and I think I might’ve had 3-4 of them.
Then there were some hot foods
The chicken, satay, fish, and croissant dishes were quite nice and I went for seconds.
There were sauces to go along with the hot foods and I had the tartar sauce with the fish and it was quite nice.
And then some more hot foods.
There was a steamer with Jasmine rice.
And some traditional Thai curries.
And here’s the food that I took over and over again.
Some other things to note:
- This lounge had WiFi and it was pretty fast for basic functions like emails, surfing the web, and clash of clans :).
- This lounge does not have dedicated restrooms separate from the rest of the terminal like other lounges do.
So overall, I have a mixed review of this lounge. Let’s start with the good aspects. The warm food was actually quite nice and enjoyable, there were power ports available at every seat, and the lounge felt fairly private due to the fact that it was only being used by the premium cabin passengers on my flight.
Now, to the areas of improvement: the lounge’s furniture was quite old and worn, the quality of some of the foods were cheap, and there were no dedicated bathrooms for this lounge.
All in all, a decent enough lounge, though it could do with some improvements. It wasn’t repelling for an outstation lounge.
