FEATURE OF THE MONTH - JANUARY 2019

RESTAURANTS TO IMPRESS

RESTAURANTS TO IMPRESS

All Bangkok residents know how it is when an out-of-town friend arrives and wants to be taken to a local restaurant – not a Thai restaurant, but a Western restaurant that has a sense of occasion about it, and which is very much part of Bangkok’s now famous dining-out scene.

This month we visited five of the restaurants that we feel would keep any visitor happy, and provide a good evening out in the most enjoyable setting.

Akira Back arrived on the scene just over a year ago, and is one of the most inventive of the new restaurants, both in terms of decor and food – and that location on the 37thfloor of the Marriott Marquis is irresistible.

Blunos, named after its eccentrically moustached owner, arrived in Bangkok around the same time and also offers a very distinctive menu, again with views of the city.

The House on Sathorn has an inventive menu and is located in the house that was built by Mr. Sathorn himself, a lovely old place next to the BTS Chong Nonsi station.

La Scala is probably Bangkok’s priciest Italian restaurant, but the quality of the food and the creativity of the kitchen, keeping one foot in tradition while exploring new boundaries, make it worth every baht.

And then there is Artur. What can you say about Artur, one of the great characters of Bangkok’s restaurant scene, and his restaurant, which offers outstanding food at incredibly reasonable prices.

Your visitors will love these – we promise.
