For a mean meaty meal with a modern twist

Our favourite place to eat

A true carnivore’s dream, Smith offers ‘nose to tail’ dining in inventive dishes which make the most of the whole beast from tongue to trotter. Go for fresh, organic meat with a difference in a laid-back yet sophisticated urban warehouse setting. Calf’s tongue, anyone?

Sukhumvit Road North Klongton, Wattana Bangkok 10110

Tel: +66 2261 0515

True Thai the local way

2. Ruen Mallika

True Thai the local way

Premium Thai cuisine doesn’t come much better than Ruen Mallika, set around a serene Thai garden tucked away from the bustle of the outside Sukhumvit Road. Enjoy the freshest green curries and coconut soups in the city made with spices grown on the property and served in traditional ceramic bowls by staff in traditional northern Thai dress. Unwind to the scent of jasmine surrounded by bamboo furnishings and exotic plants.

Steamy noodle soups at Nang-Leong Market

3. Nang-Leong

Steamy noodle soups at Nang-Leong Market

A distinctive Chinese shrine sits in the main trading hall of Nang-Leong Market, surrounded by rows of brightly coloured stalls selling coconut sweets, as row upon row of street traders work in a haze of steam cooking up delicious and cheap noodle dishes, local soups and hot curries. It is ideal for an atmospheric weekday lunch, perhaps followed by a visit to Bangkok’s oldest wooden cinema nestled in the background.

India meets Italy in Bangkok

4. Gaggan

India meets Italy in Bangkok

‘Contemporary’ may be too mild a word to describe the cutting-edge Indian cuisine of Gaggan, an unusual, luxurious and memorable dining experience. Tuck into mouth-watering Indian kedgeree, truffle soup and cleverly blended Italian and Indian flavours in a choice of settings including the white-washed colonial building, the sun-drenched gardens or the elegant library.

68/1 Soi Langsuan Ploenchit Road, Lumpini   Tel: +66 2 652 1700

Go west in style

5. Eat Me

Go west in style

If you find yourself craving western flavours amongst the spice and heat of Bangkok, look no further than Eat Me. Whether you’re after simple nachos, indulgent oysters, or a hearty Australian wagyu steak tartare, this clean-cut monochrome eaterie has it all. What’s more, all this can be washed down with top class vintages from the likes of Margaret River and Napa Valley too.
