This is the first lounge I visited after arriving from my flight from Mumbai.
There is one important thing to clarify. Concourse C has two Thai Royal Silk Lounges. This is the lounge next to gate C1 and the first of the lounges. We will visit the C lounge next to gate C2 next.
In short, though, this lounge has the same layout and design as the Concourse E lounge, so don’t expect anything different besides the food because we are in breakfast hours right now.
At the entrance, you are greeted by an agent who scans your boarding pass. Here they also distribute a receipt where it had a unique username and password for accessing the wifi.
Once you enter the lounge, you’ll walk into an area of seats with tables. These seats did not have power ports near them. The lounge was fairly empty when I first arrived, but got gradually more full as I spent more time in there.
To the left there are bathrooms and showers should you wish to use either.
Down that same walkway, there was also a single phone booth.
Looking back in the seating area at the seats closer to the window, there were some power ports on the floor.
If you go closer to the window and look left, there are more seats along the wall and some office cubicles which came of great use to me.
This is what one of the seats along the window looked like and there apparently was no power port.
This was my office cubicle and it was of great use to me to be able to have a computer where I could transfer stuff to an external hard drive I had since I had no laptop. So that was the office cubicles.
Now let’s check out the foodstuff which is just to the right once entering the lounge.
There was a fridge with a good amount of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
And then there was some hard alcohol and water bottles with glasses available for use.
Now to the food: there were some chilled options.
Then there were some dim sum options in a heated oven.
There was also some sausages and bacon which appeared to have a lot more fat than proper meat.
There was also a large set up with coffee machines and tea with a large variety of tea bags.
here was also a dessert table away from the main food area which had some good options.
And some juices.
Honestly, I did not find any of the food appetizing. The best thing there was probably the tapioca pudding. I did not even touch the cold sandwiches and I tried some of the hot foods and they were not that good. So a letdown from TG on that aspect.
Now on the other side of the food, there were more seats. Some of these had power ports on the floor though nothin too much.
There also seemed to be some private rooms for reserve.
So overall, count me unimpressed…..again. This lounge definitely had more modern and redone seating, but like all the other TG lounges, the food is the same mediocre stuff, power ports are a hit or miss, and the overall feel isn’t very maintained. I think if TG redid their aging lounges around the world, that would tremendously improve the experience. Now onto the Concourse C lounge near gate C2. Stay tuned for the rest! Cheers!
