Top Restaurants in Bangkok

Blue Elephant

Thai food served amid a colonial setting in a graceful mansion. Immaculate Thai cuisine is sprinkled with luxurious global ingredients – think foie gras on tamarind sauce. Trying the carefully selected Thai wines is a must.

This cute riverside restaurant dishes up inventive Thai seafood dishes to design-conscious locals who enjoy the funky decor on split-level wooden decks and the river breezes. Get a reservation and show up early – specialties like deep-fried catfish salad sell out fast.

Erawan Tea Room

This plush eatery in a highbrow mall serves select teas and superb, old-style Thai dishes that are hard to get elsewhere. Tony Chi's clever-cute design take on a traditional tearoom delivers the perfect backdrop for an affordable post-shopping-spree sitdown.

Tamarind Cafe

An oasis of urban glitz that offers fantastic vegetarian fare amid artsy surroundings. The meatless menu, a great selection of teas, a happy staff, and reasonable prices keep regulars and visitors happy.

The Dome

The epitome of stylish dining, this handful of venues delivers Mediterranean-based delicacies to discerning guests 63 stories above ground. Venture from hip Distil Bar to luxurious Breeze and back again, and try concentrating on the award-winning food instead of the mesmerizing views.
