Bawarchi Indian Restaurant

With over 15 years in the game, Bawarchi Restaurant has won over locals, tourists as well as Bangkok’s substantial Indian community with their famous tandoori kebabs, delightful range of creamy curries and long list of tasty vegetarian offerings. The group of restaurateurs now own five other branches across Bangkok, although their flagship venue at the Intercontinental Hotel is where Bawarchi’s mini-Indian empire all started, and still remains our personal favourite. With plenty of colour, stylish furnishings, as well as a nightly live band playing classic sub-continental music, the result is a grand venue that oozes a distinctly royal Indian vibe.

Opening Hours: 11:00 - 00:00 daily
Address: Intercontinental Hotel (President Tower Arcade) B-level, 973 Ploenchit Road, Bangkok
Tel: +662 656 0102-3

La Cantina Bangkok is one of those restaurants that you could walk past a thousand times without taking a second glance, with its low-key exterior and unassuming sign. Yet those that do venture inside are in for a real treat. Tucked away down Sukhumvit Soi 16 near Asoke, the French-Italian born chef creates his entire menu from scratch: that’s everything from the handmade ravioli and fettuccine, right the way down to the chocolate sauce in their desserts.

Hours: 11:30-15:00, 17:30-22:30 (Closed Sunday) - Location: 25/4 Sukhumvit Soi 16 (opposite ‘Foodland’) - MRT: Sukhumvit - BTS: Asok - Tel: +66 (0)2-259 6669

Whale’s Belly - whose head chef recently won the title of Iron Chef Thailand on television - is a restaurant that exceeds expectations. The kitchen is under the supervision of a young, visionary chef who trained at some of the most prestigious restaurants in Bangkok. With an interest in molecular gastronomy, some of the techniques used are inspired by those used at the famed Spanish culinary school elBulli. Ingredients are imported to ensure that Whale’s Belly serves the finest quality produce available.

Opening Hours: Every day from 17.30-23.00
Address: 39 Boulevard tower, 2nd floor, Sukhumvit Soi 39 - Tel: +66 (0)2 1600 333 - (0) 87 441 9545
