Nightlife in Bangkok is awesome! There are so many good restaurants in Bangkok that it’s hard to shortlist just a few out of them. Somehow, we’ve managed to find great restaurants in Bangkok (I’m not going to go for the good ones but only Great!)

Top of my list are:

Nang Gin Kui Bangkok Private Dining (river view)

If you are looking to meet new people, this might be the best place to have dinner with complete normal people (hahaha) in Bangkok. Not only the food is great but the full view of the Chaophraya river and the temples around it is superb.

Although a little expensive, the terrific views and the appetizing food with 15 course will definitely make you come back to this place.

In the Mood For Love Sushi Bar Ekkamai soi 1

Food: Japanese, Diners and Sushi Bar

Address: Ekkamai Soi 1, Bangkok, Thailand

Right opposite soi 10 Ekkamai. This restaurants probably makes the best sushi in Bangkok. The drinks are a little expensive. A bottle of wine costs around 1800 baht and food for two would probably cost around 2000 baht as well. It also has some really good music and the crowd is all high-so Thais. 

You can make it out from the cars parked outside the restaurant. While writing it I’m really getting hungry by the thought of having “Sushi”. By the way, they can make nice veggie Sushi as well.


Seven Spoon – A Hidden Gem


Food: International

Address: 211/8 Chakkrapatipong Road, Bangkok, 10110, Thailand

The restaurant is located a little far from the city but it’s worth a hassle. They’ve Mediterranean dishes, awesome mock-tails and great staff who can recommend delicious dishes for you.
Reasonably priced as compared to other restaurants in the city probably because of its location. (So don’t miss the opportunity).


Papa’s Kitchen


Food: Western (America, British)

Address: Soi 30, Pattanakan, Suan Luang, Bangkok, Thailand

They’re planning to expand the restaurant to fit the demand of more people. They recently have launched their new menu which has some awesome burgers. Like the one below “The Awesome 220g Australian Beef Pattie”.

Baked filler of snapper with lemon pepper butter. It’s a healthy dish (Can’t imagine that healthy dishes could taste like this). Well, at Papa’s Kitchen it does taste delicious…oops super delicious.


Shoshana – Israeli restaurant in Khaosan Road


via unknown
Pita dip is fresh and delicious. They have some real nice drinks, I prefer the mint one but they’ve other soft drinks too. These guys make top notch falafals, hummus and garlic sauce.
Quite hard to find, the only tip is that it’s close to Starbucks in Khaosan Road.

Zuma Restaurant at St. Regis Hotel


Food: Japanese

Address: St. Regis Hotel, Bangkok

Click here for the map



Zuma restaurant is a top class Japanese restaurant with a wide range of dishes to offer. Enjoy eating outdoor or indoor – that’s no issue over here. You can have sushi at the counter or at the terrace in the open air.

They’ve skillfully chosen the names of the dishes to make it more interesting for people to understand and judge what might be the dish. Some exclusive dishes are in beef, pork, seafood.

Note: The best way is to go with family and friends so that you get to eat lot of dishes.

Seafood Paradise – Somboon Restaurant (Suriwong Road)


Food: Seafood Thai style

Address: Suriwong Road, Bangkok, Thailand.

somboon-restaurant-top-restaurant-bangkokIf you’re craving for seafood then there’s no better place than Somboon restaurant in Suriwong. Somboon restaurants is a franchise and is found in 5 places in Bangkok. Try going to a place which is less touristy (be a local).
They’re famous for their crab curry, you could see people lining up before the restaurant opens. Try the fish Maw soup – It’s just amazing. The restaurant is quite expensive for Bangkok standard though but it’s good to try some seafood here.


Indian Restaurant in Nana Soi 3/1 (Al-Hussain)


Food: Middle-eastern, Indian

Address: Click to see the map here

I have been in Bangkok for 6 years and whenever, I plan to eat food outside – There’s a huge chance that I’ll end up there. They’ve a huge menu and these guys make some really good beef korma (way better than Birmingham as well).

They also have the finest cottage cheese I’ve ever tried in my life. It’s soft and the Nan Bread or the Tandoori Roti (God!!! I am hungry now) just melts in your mouth.

I’ve never tried seafood here so I can’t tell much about it but my friends have told me some really nice things about it.

Som Ter Der (Saladaeng Road)


Food: Thai (Noth-east Isaan food)

Address: 5/5 Sala Daeng Road | Silom, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

Click here for the map

Authentic Isaan food (north-east Thailand) served in this “not so fancy” restaurant. The owners and the chef takes their work seriously to make sure that the food has a real connection to north-east – a completely different experience of having food here.

You got to order Som Tum (papaya salad) if you here along with sticky rice. Also, try the spicy chicken wings soup. If you don’t know what to order go with their recommendations as it worked for me well first time I went there.

Note: Let them know if you want mid spicy food.
