This well-known chain of Thai restaurants already had branches in Europe and the Middle East before opening a venue in Bangkok. You might know the Blue Elephant for being one of Bangkok’s most famous cooking schools, where during the day you can learn the secrets of the spectacular dishes you savor during the evening. Set within a gorgeous colonial home, the food featured on the menu is reminiscent of ‘Royal Thai Cuisine’ sealing the restaurant a place on the ‘must-eat list’ for Thai culinary enthusiasts.
Classic dishes we recommend include the larb salmon – a spicy tartare with fresh Thai herbs that complement the fish very well. To carry on that refreshing feeling, choose wing bean and pomelo salad or rock lobster with green apple. Read More...

It is very easy to overdo things in Bangkok, a city with of a thousand and one temptations. This is especially true when it comes to the food; sometimes you need to give your body as well as your taste buds a treat, and there is no better place to do this than at glow at the Metropolitan hotel. The concept may sound a little too preachy to some, advocating organic and raw dishes, but one glance at the menu and any apprehension is put to rest. There are no wimpy salads on this menu, with highlights including grilled wagyu steak with olive and thyme tapenade and vegetables cooked in fragrant spicy tomato & turmeric sauce with chickpeas and quinoa.

Issaya Siamese Club is a charming Thai restaurant so well hidden on a small street near Rama IV Road, even with a map it's not easy to find.

Well known for its seafood, Just One is a particular pleasure to dine at due to its outdoor setting in a courtyard, complete with a man-made lake and water cascading down its walls. The food here is incredibly reasonably priced. Dishes average from 80 to 100 baht each and, true to Thai form, rice is served in the shape of a teddy bear.
We recommend getting a whole fish with chili sauce (seabass or king fish, known in Europe as dorada) and really huge river prawns, grilled with their own Just One sauce.
One of the great things about this restaurant is that guests have more than ample space in which to dine with friends and not be distracted by noise from other tables. In fact you almost feel as though you have the restaurant to yourself, although getting hold of a waiter can be something of a chore. Cocktails for just 100 baht are a good way to begin and end the evening.

Park Society is a bar, but you can order a small selection of tapas, starting at 1,100 baht. No happy hours here, but the first glass of wine starts at 290 baht, which is a lot cheaper than Vertigo at Banyan Tree or the Sky Bar at Lebua. Music is good, not intrusive, and it is just so fascinating to watch the city lights appearing as the natural light dims. The view from the Hi-So terrace located above the Park Society is probably even nicer, but it will cost you a additional 500 baht per person to enjoy the privacy of alcoves, perfect for small parties with friends.

The Sukhothai takes afternoon tea to a new level with a three-and-a-half hour buffet every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 14:00 to 17:30. The focus is on chocolate, but there is a great variety of sweets and savouries on offer, as well as pots and pots of tea. It would be wise to skip lunch if you are planning a trip, as after this experience you’ll have eaten enough that you won’t want dinner either. The Sukhothai hotel is located on South Sathorn Road, around ten minutes’ walk from Lumpini MRT. Afternoon tea is served in the lobby of the hotel – a cosy green room separated from reception by a series of arches with a view of Sukhothai’s calming water feature, and you are welcomed in to a soothing sound of the khim, a traditional Southeast Asian instrument. It’s always busy so be sure to book ahead, the chocoholic crowd are a keen bunch.

Tenyuu Grand on Sathorn
Tenyuu Grand is an upmarket Japanese restaurant set in a beautiful old house with a large manicured garden, a feature rather unusual in Bangkok. The room inside is less surprising but but what makes Tenyuu Grand special is the quality of the imported meats and fishes. Try some Matsutaka beef but check the price first, it's more expensive than Kobe Beef. The choice of Japanese dishes is impressive, as well as the bill.
