Highlights of Vertigo Rooftop
It’s worth getting to Vertigo when the restaurant opens at 6pm so you can catch a glimpse of Bangkok during dusk. The view is definitely the highlight of this restaurant, but the delicious food is not far behind. Vertigo and Moon Bar takes over the entirety of the rooftop at Banyan Tree Hotel and offers 360-degrees view of the Bangkok cityscape that includes leafy Lumpini Park and plenty of other skyscrapers around.
Viewing the sunset from here is a Bangkok must-do, and enjoying dinner at the sky-high restaurant makes the moment even more memorable. Although you’re dining on the roof, Banyan Tree has taken the 5-star fittings and service outdoors with silver service, flowing tablecloths and soft lighting.
Cocktails at Vertigo Rooftop
You can start the evening with Vertigo’s signature cocktails (from 350 baht each): Vertigo Sunset is a tropical mix of Malibu, pineapple, cranberry and lime served in a classic martini glass. For the ‘wow’ factor, try the Moon Romance, which is an enticing green muddle of melon vodka, crème de menthe, peach and lime. Served with a rose and on a bed of dry ice, it certainly makes heads turn. The unusual combination is also refreshing and surprisingly delicious.
There are also plenty of other cocktails, mocktails and an impressive wine list to pick from. If you’re lucky, the sun will be setting as you enjoy your drink. Be sure to wander down to Moon Bar at the opposite end of the restaurant, from here, you’ll get a fantastic view of the Chao Phraya River winding through the skyscrapers.
Dining highlights at Vertigo
For starters, try the fresh lobster spring rolls, generously stuffed with meat, mango, herbs and served with a fruity mango and cinnamon chutney. The tuna tartare is also great for sharing, carefully sliced and extremely flavourful, topped with chunky guacamole and served with lotus roots crisps adding crunchiness to the dish.
A popular main course, although perhaps not the most picturesque, is the barbequed baby back pork spare ribs, served with a tangy sauce and roasted baby tomatoes. The meat literally falls off the bone – and unlike most experiences with enjoying ribs, this isn’t at all messy. There’s also some extra sauce to pile on top of the very generous helping.
The sea bass, served on a bed of creamy dauphinoise potatoes and served with crunchy greens, is also popular, as is the tagine of duck, served with juicy oranges, figs and artichokes. The fruit really brings out the flavours of the pink duck and takes the edge off the delicious but fatty skin.
The desserts are too tempting to turn down; you can go traditional with mango sticky rice and coconut ice-cream or taste the best the pastry chefs have to offer with the tasty mango cheesecake, fresh fig tart or Thai tea crème brûlée. As the sky turns dark, the buildings and traffic sparkle below. Sitting on the roof of Bangkok is rather special and it isn’t surprising that long-term residents bring their guests here for an unforgettable evening.
