Bangkok Restaurants

A Rough Guide to some of the best
Eateries in the City

Basil Restaurant

A rough guide to some of the nicest Bangkok Restaurants where not only will you be served with top class Thai cuisine, but one of these eateries known as the Cabbages and Condoms restaurant, offers a most interesting alternative to dining. Bangkok also offers a wide choice of international restaurants.

I have to admit that this is going to be somewhat difficult for me as there are just so many good places to eat in Bangkok. I will guide you to some of the most popular ones, but not necessarily my favourite.

You simply have to go out there and try them for yourself. I'm sure that your tastes might differ from that of mine, so my suggestion is to try a variety of both the local and international restaurants and then choose your best. 

I once found a restaurant by accident (not the physical kind) outside the Joe Louis Theater besides the Suan Lum Night Bazaar on Rama IV Road near Lumphini Park. I enjoyed the food so much that I went back there three nights in a row. Unfortunately, the restaurant no longer exists due to new development.

Joe Louis Puppet Theater Restaurant was the name of the eatery and the beauty of this was that once you'd finished your meal, you could simply pop across the road to the Night Bazaar for a spot of shopping or visit the entertainment arena nearby where you could have a drink and listen to young local artists sing and perform on stage. I'm really going to miss this special place.

Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant

Bangkok Restaurants

Cabbages and Condoms is located at No. 6 Soi 12, Sukhumvit. Even for the pure novelty that the name suggests, this eatery could be one of your first choices as the cuisine here is top class. The host will personalise your meal to suit your individual taste.

The name of this restaurant is derived from the huge amount of cabbages grown and eaten by the Thai people, mostly in the northeastern province. Should you venture into this region, there is a good chance that you'll see vast cabbage patches all over the place.

But because cabbages are part of the local staple diet, you need not have to order this local delicacy at this restaurant.

If condoms were part of the impoverished Thai's daily use, then the associated health-related problems could also be improved considerably. Nevertheless, some of the profits from the restaurant go towards helping HIV awareness programs and other related charitable projects.

When leaving this Bangkok restaurant, there is a sign that says: 

Sorry, we have no mints. Please take a condom instead.

Since you are fully informed, please enjoy your meal and remember, the owner of the restaurant says that the food here is guaranteed not to make you pregnant.

Basil Restaurant is a Multi-award winning Thai restaurant with a reputation for some of the finest Thai cuisine. Should you be staying at the Sheraton Grande in Sukhumvit on your vacation, then you will not have to travel far. This restaurant is right here serving 5-star traditional and home-style dishes in a 5-star setting. Why not try their lavish buffet-style lunch on any Sunday. You can tuck into a wide variety of delicious Thai specialities.

The Celadon Restaurant is an exceptional eatery serving authentic Thai cuisine in a superb setting in an even more exotic water garden. Whether you decide to sit in the classically styled air-conditioned Salas or the open-aired terraces, you'll be surrounded by the tranquillity of its wonderful lotus pond. Try the a-la-carte menu which offers a fine selection of Thai food from around the country. One of the best restaurants in Bangkok.

The Blue Elephant Restaurant is a superb eatery set in a beautiful old French-styled colonial building located in the heart of Bangkok - opposite the Surasak BTS Sky Train Station. Not only do they serve excellent Royal Thai cuisine, they are also a well-equipped cooking school.

Should you enjoy the food here, you could also try your hand at preparing the same dishes once you return home. A good tip: Go straight to the a-la-carte menu. You'll find the Blue Elephant Restaurant at 233 South Sathorn Road Kwaen Yannawa, Khet Sathorn, Bangkok, Thailand.

The Thanying is a fine restaurant serving Royal Thai Cuisine at its best. This converted Thai pavilion is set well off the main roads and is the perfect setting for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Apart from the consistently excellent food and service, you also get to enjoy some superb surroundings.

The restaurant is a three-minute walk from the Surasak BTS Sky Train Station. (Same station as at the Blue Elephant restaurant). It's at number 10 Thanon Pramuan, on Pramuan Street, just off Silom Road between Silom 17 and 19 at Bangrak in Bangkok.

Supatra River House Restaurant is a lovely restaurant with a fantastic setting in a traditional Thai house overlooking the Chao Phraya River and close to the Temple of Dawn. Very easy to get there as you can make use of the restaurant's free shuttle boat. First, take the Bangkok Express Boat to the Maha Raj Pier at Maha Raj Road and then transfer onto the old wooden shuttle boat.

At this eatery, you will be able to order some excellent Thai cuisine on the riverbank terrace whilst watching the sunsets over the river. If you should be here on a Friday or Saturday night, then you can enjoy the music and dance that accompanies your meal.
