10 Most Romantic Restaurants in Bangkok

Couples’ Restaurants in Bangkok

Romantic restaurants in Bangkok are found throughout the city, and come in various shapes and sizes – rooftop or water’s edge? Candle lit dining room or a meal under the stars? Of course, everyone’s idea of romance is different, so we have tried to include a variety of dining experiences. The thing that groups them together is that each of these restaurants is well-suited to a romantic meal in Bangkok with just you and your special someone.

We’ve included some secluded venues surrounded by rich gardens that feel a million miles away from the hustle of the city, along with some of the best rooftop vistas, and a couple of charming riverside restaurants right by the water’s edge. Even if you’re looking for something out of a movie scene – soft candlelight and a string quartet – we’ve got you covered with this list of Bangkok’s most romantic restaurants. If you plan to go to any of these restaurants for your  Valentine's dinner, book several days in advance! (See also 5 Great Restaurants for Valentine's day)

Mezzaluna Silom/Riverside - Super Expensive

This is a romantic restaurant that pulls out all the stops. It has a string quartet, diligent service, and some of the best views you will probably ever see! The sophisticated French cuisine is sublime, but you should be prepared to pay for such an exquisite experience. Located on the 65th floor of lebua at State Tower Hotel, you can see Bangkok spread out far below you while you enjoy a daily set menu of 4- or 7-courses only. Read More...

Sala Rim Naam Riverside - Expensive
Sala Rim Naam

Dining right by the water’s edge, Sala Rim Naam at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok combines all the elements needed to be one of the most romantic Thai dining experiences in Bangkok. The amazing location by the riverside, the legendary Mandarin Oriental service and, of course, the key ingredient of the Thai food make this restaurant one of our very favourites. If you dine inside, you can enjoy a live theatrical performance, but it’s the charming outdoor patio where the feeling of romance is best felt. The menu runs through traditional Thai dishes – we suggest taking the mini set of appetisers as you may find new Thai flavours beyond the classics for which Thailand is known. Read More...

Vertigo Sathorn - Super Expensive

Bangkok is certainly not short of rooftop bars (with more opening every season) but, for classic romance, we can’t look past the cute tables of Vertigo, on the 61st floor of The Banyan Tree Bangkok Hotel. The menu serves up western classics – from Caeser salad to steaks and ribs – but it’s the view that will have you thinking back on such a special meal under the Bangkok sky. It’s important to book early to get one of the best seats, along the side rail. This will give you a better view and more privacy. Read More...

Le Normandie Riverside - Super Expensive
Le Normandie

If you really want to impress your dinner date with something classic, we would suggest Le Normandie at Mandarin Oriental. Incredible French cuisine, river views and service fit for royalty – that sounds like a recipe for romance, right? Le Normandie Bangkok has been synonymous with high-end dining for over 40 years and keeps a strict dress code. In fact, it’s one of the only dining rooms in Bangkok where men must wear a blazer. Still, you can’t help but be impressed when walking into this grand restaurant, with crystal glassware and centrepiece chandelier. Read More...

J'Aime by John Michel Lorain Sathorn - Super Expensive
J'Aime by John Michel Lorain

J’aime Bangkok is perfect for couples who really enjoy new restaurant experiences. This fancy French restaurant was opened by 3-Michelin starred Chef John Michel Lorain and is now run by his daughter and her partner. The food is classic French in preparation and flavour, but there’s an Asian twist added in the delivery. For example, one of the most popular dishes at J’aime is a Gillardeau oyster, served with a cauliflower puree, a wrap of spinach, and pearls of oyster brine, citrus and bergamot. The restaurant is located in the beautiful surroundings of U Sathorn Hotel, overlooking a peaceful garden and the hotel swimming pool. It feels a million miles away from central Bangkok. It is a bit hard to find though, in the back streets of Sathorn. Read More...

The Gardens of Dinsor Palace Sukhumvit - Mid Range
The Gardens of Dinsor Palace

Dinner in a mansion previously owned by Thai royalty should impress even the most demanding of partners. There’s an aviary with a family of animals, including some fluffy white bunnies and a white peacock. The menu has some hearty western options, such as a rack of ribs with espresso barbeque sauce and thick potato wedges (450 baht for half a rack), but we definitely prefer the fancy Mediterranean-inspired dishes like butter fish with orange jus, raisins, eggplant and firm cherry tomatoes. With the vast majority of the menu under 500 baht for mains, prices are surprisingly low for such a special experience. Read More...

Chakrabongse Villas Riverside - Mid Range
Chakrabongse Villas

The ultra-exclusive and truly gorgeous Chakrabongse Villas is perched over the Chao Phraya River, set in a traditional Thai pavilion floating on its own private dock. Although you can get in the back door, the best way to come – especially if you’ve got a date – is by booking their private speedboat in advance. This takes you from the popular Central Sathorn Pier in front of Saphan Taksin BTS Station all the way to the impressive waterside entrance (for an extra charge of 1,500 baht). Offering a range of set menus only (including vegetarian and raw food options), with no a la carte, dinner at Chakrabongse Villas costs just over 1,000 baht. The menu here changes daily, but you can expect a line-up of all the Thai classics including tom yam goong, roasted duck with tamarind source, and massaman curry. Read More...

Sala Rattanakosin Riverside - Mid Range
Sala Rattanakosin

Sala Rattanakosin restaurant offers one of the most romantic views it’s possible to find in Bangkok. Located on the riverside directly opposite Wat Arun (The Temple of Dawn). You can choose to dine on the outdoor patio, but it’s more romantic in the 3rd floor restaurant with candlelight and full floor-to-ceiling windows. The menu is a combination of Thai and western dishes, all beautifully plated. After dinner, head up to the 5th floor rooftop bar for a few drinks while soaking up the view, just you and your love.

Ma Maison Ploenchit - Mid Range
Ma Maison

Ma Maison Restaurant is a modern venue that combines an elegant ambiance with traditional Thai fare. Situated on the sprawling lawns of the Nai Lert Park Heritage Home, this restaurant prides itself on its family recipes, passed down from generation to generation. Dinner here is certainly a secluded experience and, despite being just a couple of minutes away from Ploenchit BTS Skytrain Station, Ma Maison feels like an escape from the city thanks to the beautiful garden, keeping the traffic and general hustle far off in the background. Dishes cost around 300 baht for a main dish, so it offers excellent value. Popular dishes include red curry with shrimps and the classic pad Thai. Read More...

Red Sky

It has an impressive 360-degree panoramic vista from its 55th floor, very high level cuisine and a general air of sophistication.
