Ratchada Restaurants in Bangkok

Where and What to Eat in Ratchada

All along Ratchadapisek you can easily grab a bite from the street food stalls that serve office workers by day and crowds of revelers by night. There are also many established restaurants (such as the well-known Sombon Seafood) clustered around Huai Khwang MRT.

A couple feature in our Thailand Tatler Reviews section. Many hotels in the area offer some good restaurants too - both Thai and international. Fortune Town has a small food court on its ground floor, with local cuisines accompanying the likes of McDonald’s, KFC and Dairy Queen. So too, do Carrefour supermarket and Esplanade, although the latter features a few pleasant cafes.

Sangthong Restaurant

Sangthong (translated as Golden Light) is a local restaurant with an impressive pedigree – the original branch and corresponding family recipe has been serving delicious plates of crispy pork belly, Chinese red pork and roast duck for over 50 years. Read More...


All Restaurant in Ratchada

Anothai Restaurant

Anothai Restaurant

An Asian inspired nouveau-style restaurant, this eatery focuses on lighter fare, with a healthy menu offering both Asian and Western style dishes – mostly organic options. Tasty appetisers include spicy roasted eggplant and sesame dip. All salads are made with certified organic produce. Noodle dishes and pasta (lasagne and spaghetti) come in various well-chosen flavours, such as spinach and shitake lasagne. The health-inducing herbal teas are listed according to their powers - and the variety is daunting, and the display in the bakery section will want to make you carry half of it home.

Opening Hours: 11:30 - 21:30
Location: 967/17 Soi Rama 9 Hospital
MRT: Phra Ram 9
Tel: +66 (0)2 641 5366
Cuisine: Vegetarian

La Truffe

All of the imported ingredients and each of the delectable dishes at this chic French eatery are overseen by Chef Nicholas Reynard. The Provence-imported ingredients and inspired menu features established French delights which include tender and juicy frog's leg provencale, laced with garlic and butter, ratatouille, lobster served with green asparagus and tender quail meat.

The desserts are equally impressive with French almond pudding with passion fruit purée highly recommended. The restaurant is cosy, using muted tones that ensure a refined atmosphere. Before or after dinner the Circle Bar does a mean cocktail and has an extensive wine list.

Opening Hours: 11:00-14:00 and 18:00-01:00 (closed Saturday and Sunday)
Location: Maduzi Hotel, 9/1 Ratchadaphi sek Road
MRT: Thai Cultural Centre
Cuisine: French

Loong Foong

The extensive dim-sum menu attracts a loyal clientele at this upscale Chinese restaurant. Prawn mango rolls feature fresh spring rolls stuffed with fruit cubes and tiny seafood. Shredded abalone with mixed fruit salad presents this seafood as an appetiser and is a nice blend of tastes.

Sweet and sour pork is cooked in classic, familiar style with breaded chunks of meat in a tangy sauce amid red and green peppers, pineapple and onions. The menu is consistent in the sense that it’s all pretty delicious and dishes are generous in size.

Opening Hours: 11:30-14:30 – 18:00-22:00
Location: Swissotel Le Concorde, 204 Ratchadaphisek Road
MRT: Thai Cultural Centre
Tel: +66 (0) 2694 2222
Cuisine: Cantonese

Moom Muum

Combining cuisines from four colourful nations – Japan, India, Italy and Thailand, Moom Muum caters to a variety of culinary preferences. Described as a, ‘street dining room and bar’ the restaurant adopts a distinctly street vibe with black-washed walls layered with bold graffiti and a warehouse-style floor, finished off with white and leather furnishings.

Highlights from the four kitchens include a variety of freshly prepared sushi and thin-crust pizzas. If by chance you don’t want to eat but are keen to have a drink and take a break from shopping, the bar has a great beverage selection and the seating is pleasingly comfortable.

Opening Hours: 10:00-22:00
Location: Esplanade, 99 Rachadapisek Road
MRT: Thai Cultural Centre
Tel: +66 (0) 2660 9301-4
Cuisine: International

Rum Sai Restaurant

The definite highlight of this no-frills Thai-style restaurant is the all-you-can-eat 89 baht buffet. If you like some sort of interior concept with your food then Rum Sai should be avoided but for those who are happy for the food to take centre stage in the dining experience it comes highly recommended. Like many places in Thailand, the best food can often come from the worst-looking restaurants. This one, however, is at least clean and comfortable – perfect for a quick and easy feed. The food is great and you can also choose from a selection of live seafood. Drinks are not included in the price.

Opening Hours: 17:00-01:00
Location: Ratchdapisek, around Soi 17
MRT: Ratchadapisek
Cuisine: Thai

Sangthong Restaurant

Sangthong (translated as Golden Light) is a local restaurant with an impressive pedigree – the original branch and corresponding family recipe has been serving delicious plates of crispy pork belly, Chinese red pork and roast duck for over 50 years. There are many neighbourhood restaurants in Bangkok serving this Thai/Chinese fusion type of food, but Sangthong Restaurant Huay Kwang is surely unbeatable in terms of taste and cost. The restaurant is located around 1km away from Huai Kwang MRT Station, close to the Laos and Cambodian Embassies, so Sangthong Restaurant and its friendly, English-speaking owner offer tourists a great place to stop for some delicious Thai food and local, trustworthy advice. They are open from 09:00 until 19:00 and get busiest around lunch time when the place can be rather hectic. Read More...

Opening Hours: 09:00 – 19:00
MRT: Huai Kwang
Address: 468 Pracha Utit, Huai Kwang, Bangkok

Somboon Seafood

Having been in business since 1969, this successful seafood franchise (there are four scattered around Bangkok) serves up the freshest fish dishes in town. Set in ample space, the food is served at a fast pace, even during peak hours. Don’t expect the staff to be overly friendly and attentive though, they’ll deliver the food accordingly but we can’t dress this place up as being anything other than a great seafood restaurant with a tellingly loyal clientele.

A favourite with Japanese and Chinese diners, dishes to choose from include goong ob woonsen (prawns baked with glass noodles), yellow curry crab and hoy jor (deep-fried crab meat and pork balls). If by chance you don’t feel like seafood there is a small selection of Chinese and Thai dishes.

Opening Hours: 16:00-23:00
Location: 167/9-12 Huay-Kwang Intersection, Ratchadapisek Road
MRT: Huay Kwang
Tel: +66 (0) 2692 68503
Cuisine: Thai seafood

The Cup

Featuring what some claim to be Bangkok’s only hydroponic salad bar, The Cup offers a variety of salads from classic Caesar, Greek and tuna to a smoked duck breast salad with blackberry and port sauce that is essentially a meal in itself. The restaurant is a hit with Hi-So ladies and executive expats who favour its British-style roast meat dishes, with all the trimmings and lashings of gravy.

The fixed-price lunch menu consisting of soup or salad, a choice of two or three main courses and a dessert will set you back less than most hotel buffet lunches. The Cups’ desserts are prepared daily and are an undisputed hit with customers.

Opening Hours: 11:00-18:00, Monday-Saturday
Location: Lake Rachada Office Complex, 193/21-22 Ratchadapisek Road
MRT: Thai Cultural Centre
Tel: +66 (0) 264-0247-50
Cuisine: European
