Where to eat in Bangkok?

Restaurants in Bangkok

Visiting Thailand is about shopping, eating, visiting historical and getting a glimpse into a rich culture full of colour and flavours. If you have done your homework before your visit, you must have a list of a couple of nice restaurants to visit to taste authentic the dishes. I try to search for well-reviewed local eat-out and have come across really nice spots with great food. 

One of the new places I discovered on my last visit was Bann Kanitha (69 South Sathorn Road, Sathorn, Bangkok 10120) http://www.baan-khanitha.com/.

The restaurant is in spacious located on main Sathorn Road. I was staying at Centrepoint Wireless Road, which is very close to Lumphini Park. Sathorn Road starts from the end of Lumpini Park all the way to Chao Praya River. Other famous restaurants along the way are Blue Elephant, which is quite expensive even by Western standards are along the same road.

The menu at Baan Kanitha is traditional Thai with authentic ingredients obtained from their organic grown farms. The seating arrangement is great with brightly lit rooms. There is plenty of seating space and private dining areas for large parties. The presentation of food and quality of service is great. Don't forget to try the prawn dishes (Ayudhya Giant Prawn Phad Sauce Ma Kham) and lobster dishes. With three to four main dishes between a party of three, you are expected to pay around $US30 per head (not including drinks). The overall eating out experience was great.

 

Other restaurants in the same area are Vertigo Bar and Grill, Nahm restaurant at Cosmopolitan Hotel, Ban Yun on the 60th floor on Banyan Tree Hotel offering great Cantonese dishes including braised abalone and birds nest soup. 

Next day I looked for a nice eat out along Chao Praya river. The find was a was Khinlom Chomsaphan. It is a little hard to find if you are driving by yourself. We enjoyed the food so much that decided to go a day after. We went round and round the street but could not find the place. Finally had to give 100 bhat to a cab driver to navigate us to the restaurant. The name is also a bit difficult to remember. The taste of the food, however, and experience is unforgettable.

I tried some of the best curries, papaya salad and sea food dishes at these restaurants. Sitting perched on the edge of the river, this location commands a good view of the bridge. You can see boat and leisure cruises on the river all the way till midnight. Brightly lit buildings are visible on the other side of the river appealing to my curiosity. There is live music over the weekend and you can listen to great retro songs in Thai accent all through the night. The restaurants serve a vast array of fresh sea food dishes and drinks.

 Another spot much advertised on the local maps and free travel guides is Roti Mataba. The restaurants are quite small, if you are claustrophobic avoid it at all cost. However, you are daring sort and want to try new flavours at any cost, this is a place for you. The food is primarily indian in thai style. You can order biryani, small curries and curry puffs. The portion is small so is the price, so you can have as much as you want not worrying about the price. Walk upstairs to find a small air-conditioned sitting area to enjoy your meals. Downstairs is is a bit congested and not very spacious. This is a nice stopover if you are walking on foot to explore the area and want to stopover for a quick cheap meal. Driving here especially to try the food is not suggested.

I have been exploring South-East Asia for over twenty years and have visited some of the best destinations in the region. Through my blog, I want to share some interesting travel tips, my experience of driving across Asian destinations and some of the best places to explore in this region. I have undertaken hundreds of road trips, across Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. Most of the information in this blog comes through my own road trips and adventures in the exotic locations I have visited. 

I have, in the past followed in Anthony Bourdain's footsteps and visited most of the restaurants his team explored in their shows. Join in on my adventures and follow my trails on Instagram & Facebook Page.
