Thanying Royal Cuisine Restaurant in Silom

One of the few restaurants serving real royal cuisine in Bangkok

So you heard of Royal Cuisine and are wondering where to find the real thing and not end up in a tourist trap? Or if this one meal is going to cost such royal sum you will have to eat plain rice for the rest of your holiday? If you're not careful it could! 

Fortunately, we know a small restaurant hidden in Silom area which serving exactly what you are looking for and it won't even cost you an arm and a leg: Thanying, a delightful restaurant owned by M.R. Sorut Visuddhi, son of Princess Sulabh. Royal cuisine doesn't mean overly complicated dishes, but requires using only the best fresh ingredients, an elegant presentation and everything cut so that a guest never has to use a knife, the fish should be absolutely boneless and many other details that help to make the distinction between food and cuisine.

Thankfully, this means that you will certainly recognise many of the dishes listed on the menu. However you shouldn't think 'Oh, I tried this recently' or 'I already know this dish'... try them again here and prepare to be surprised. Of course there are also some less known dishes inclduing our favourite: Nam Prik Mun Poo Kai Khem or Yum Tawai - (boiled vegetable salad with eggplants and bamboo shoots) but according to celebrity chef Mac Daeng, only one dish was really created in a royal kitchen, it's called 'Kao Chae' also known as 'Summer Rice'.

Kao Chae, a two hundred year old dish, is surprisingly simple and a very popular treat on the hottest days, consisting of rice in a jasmine and candle fragrance ice water served with an assortment of boiled and deep fried vegetables (yes, candle fumes are often used in sophisticated Thai dishes.. try it, you won't regret it!).

If you are not familiar with royal cuisine, pick one of the suggested menus at 660 baht, 790 baht or 990 baht per person, or select from a la carte. Our favourite dishes are 'Nam Prik Mun Poo Kai Khem', crab roe mixed with salted egg yolk,  Dip Poo Jha, some deep fried crab meat cakes, Yum Tawai, boiled vegetable salad with eggplants and bamboo shoots, then end with Kati Lod Chong Ice Cream - a delicious coconut ice cream with strange looking green noodles made from pandan leaves. 

Thanying is set in a charming classic house with a small shaded terrace on the side. The interior is elegant without being too sophisticated, with a lot of vintage wood furniture and chandeliers.

So what makes Thanying an authority in authentic Royal Cuisine? The Thanying kitchen is  supervised by Princess Sulabh's son, M.R. Sorut Visuddhi (M.R., Mom Rajawong, the fourth royal generation.). Princess was once the head cook in the Sukhothai Palace Kitchen for her sister Queen Rambhai Barni of King Rama the seventh. Not many restaurants in Bangkok can argue with this. So if you have to pick one peaceful place to experience such unique cuisine, it should be Thanying.
