The first lounge on my lounge hopping itinerary was the EVA Air lounge. Given that I’m Taiwanese, I have fond memories of flying EVA to and from Taiwan when I was younger, but I haven’t flown them in 15 years.
The lounge is located near F1, so it’s very, very far from the Thai First Class Lounge and Spa. I’d say it was at least a mile, as it took me about 25 minutes to walk to the EVA lounge from the Thai First Class lounge.
The lounge is basically a large, spacious room with some good plane spotting opportunities as the windows provide a view onto the apron. The lounge was moderately busy as EVA has a number of flights out of BKK (including one that goes on to LHR), but there was plenty of seating.
The food options were actually pretty good for a business class lounge. There was Swensen’s ice cream, pizza, pad thai, and dim sum, and I thought the quality of food was quite good for what it was. Then again, I have weird food tastes, but I enjoyed everything that I tried, including the pizza with BBQ sauce. They also had Thai iced tea and Johnny Walker Black, which I did not mix but tried separately.
There’s nothing flashy or fancy about the EVA Air lounge, but I think it’s a solid choice, and if my flight were departing from a nearby gate, I’d definitely stop by. Of all of the business class lounges that I visited, I think the EVA Air lounge had the best food, as there was a good (although eclectic) mix of offerings and everything was reasonably tasty. I also enjoy watching planes, and this lounge was one of the better ones for that.
