Thai Airways Business Class Lounge Bangkok Airport -Royal Orchid Prestige Lounge Food and Nutrition Review (breakfast)

After getting off a 13 hour flight to Thailand from Finland, I was delighted to see a Thai Airways Business Class Lounge right opposite the gate for my connecting flight to Melbourne. The Royal Orchid Prestige Lounge was directly opposite D4 which suited me as I was very tired and while I could have visited a few other lounges in the airport, if you know Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok you know just how spread out it is. So that morning a shower and a review of the food was all I had time for which was perfect before my next flight – so let’s see what The Royal Prestige Lounge was like.

I was flying business class and am not a Star Alliance frequent flyer, so I was in the main section of the lounge. There was a first class section off to the left of the main desk (Royal Orchid Prestige Lounge) which I did not have access to – so this review of the lounge is in the business class section (Royal Silk).

What’s Healthy?

  • Fantastic to see a range of colourful, fresh salad vegetables on offer so early in the morning. There was also a range of cut up fresh fruit. Choosing a number of different colours for your plate is perfect for providing a range of antioxidants and vitamins – perfect for boosting your nutrient content while travelling.

  • An omelet station offering freshly cooked eggs – this was a nice surprise. I have not seen one of these before in a buffet style airport lounge. Nothing worse than getting powdered eggs on a buffet. It was also nice to see the range of flavourings that you could add to your eggs such as ginger, and spring onions. There were also fried eggs available on the buffet.

  • Not only were there a range of fresh salad vegetables available but also cooked vegetables too. Look at these amazing looking tomatoes! A few spoonfuls of these on a plate for breakfast yes please. I always try and have tomato for breakfast – source of vitamin C and the fabulous carotenoid lycopene. Cooked tomato is a richer source of lycopene and so I like to include both raw and cooked tomato regularly in my eating patterns.

Not so great. Caution.

  • The sandwiches were all made from white bread without much filling. The varieties were vegetables (one to left), chicken (in the middle), and ham and cheese (on the right). There was also a range of sweet cakes and slices available.

  • A range of pastries were also available, including chicken pastries and croissants. There were also dumplings, BBQ chicken buns and taro buns. A lot of the time these are made from low fibre carbohydrates and are high in energy. If you like to eat these then just choose 1 type and boost the nutrients by adding cooked or fresh vegetables.

  • Corn flakes and chocolate flakes were the cereals on offer the morning I visited the lounge. These are quite processed cereals and usually low in fibre.

Last word from travel food and nutrition review for Thai Airways Business Class Lounge Bangkok Airport

Plenty of variety of foods in this Thai Airways Business Class Lounge – the Royal Orchid Prestige Lounge – at Bangkok Airport. I was happy to see that it was possible to make a nutritious breakfast from both hot and cold foods. While this was good, there were a number of less nutritious foods in the lounge and so it can be tempting to eat less well.
