Restaurants in Bangkok

Whether you’re chowing down on a tasty street vendor meal, enjoying a snack of fresh fruit, or sitting down to a five-star meal, Bangkok restaurants offer a wide variety of Thai food as well as international fare. For an upscale Thai experience, try Bo.lan. Two former chefs from London’s Michelin-starred Nahm operate this restaurant, and they treat the food like a craft artfully layering flavor. Bo.lan, which means “ancient,” is one of the best restaurants in Bangkok.

For traditional, Thai cooking at a family-run restaurant go to Khua Kling & Pak Sod. This restaurant serves up specialties of Southern Thailand: be prepared for the heat. The best dishes are known for their spice. The chef at Nahm is Australian, but don’t let that fool you. His cuisine is far from bland, or westernized. Cuisine at Nahm was inspired by ancient Thai cookbooks. Chef and author David Thompson is serving multi-course dinners and has resuscitated old dishes. There are also many Bangkok restaurants that serve American, French, Italian, Japanese and Malaysian food. Check out some of the diners and pubs that cater to out-of-town guests.
