Sawatdee Krap,


To add to ฝรั่งหมู่บ้านทาชมภู's suggestions, "kit dtang" (which means "think about money") is another way to ask for the bill (at least in the north).

Thanks Parisa,


Also, new words in this lesson such as, chái, and bàt, should have been added in the vocabulary.

Khǎaw-thôot which is listed there, was already introduced in Lesson 10 of Survival Phrases.

Hello Derrick,


Good question. " separate checks" in Thai is "yâaek-bin แยกบิล", from my experience some restaurant may not able to do it when you sit at the same table. Hope that’s help. Please let me know if you have any future questions. I will be glad to help. We wish you have a good progress in learning Thai.


Have a nice day.

How does one ask the waiter for separate checks (formal and informal) in Thai?

For the benefit of other students:


เช็คบิลด้วยค่ะ

chék bin dûuai

This is formal and generally is used in restaurants where the wait staff will present you with a physical, itemized check. At Sizzler Steak House in the Mall, you'll use chék bin dûuai.


เก็บตังค์ด้วยค่ะ

gèp dtang dûuai

This is informal and generally is used in restaurants where there are set prices and the wait staff will simply collect your money without giving you a bill. At the mom and pop's noodle shop, you'll use gèp dtang dûuai which literally means 'collect money.'


And my the way, you don't need dûuai. Shorten both to chék bin or gèp dtang like the Thais sitting next to you will do and you'll be speaking colloquial Thai. And of course, be polite and always use your khâ or khráp at the end of the request. ครับ! ?

I don't understand why you still lose time at the 15th lesson to explain that women say KHAP

and men KHRAP. If people didn't understand it at the 15th lesson, they never will.
