The Standard Grill
At The Standard Grill, classic American fare (they’re a sibling of the iconic New York namesake) meets fine dining flair. We recommend starting off with the wedge salad in its creamy blue cheese dressing. Next, you have three equally enticing entrées: crispy grilled sea bass, juicy lamb cutlets in tapenade jus, or a decadent wild boar ragout. Round off your meal with the black forest millefeuille.
Sala Rattanakosin Eatery and Bar
In addition to stunning Thai food, Sala Rattanakosin also offers a sweeping, unobstructed view of the riverside’s star attraction, Wat Arun. The crab salad with pomelo appetizer is a nice balance of savory and tangy. For the main, diners can go down the European route with the salmon confit with a citrus beurre blanc sauce, or if you’re in the mood for something different, try the fusion khao soi duck confit. The mango sticky rice dessert comes with an unexpected (yet delightful) pandan custard macaron.
The interior of Gaston resembles a rustic-chic Parisian-style bistro, and the menu similarly includes all the usual French bistro favorites. For an authentic French meal, begin with a hearty bowl of French onion soup before moving onto either the roasted chicken with ratatouille Provençal, or pork sausage “de Toulouse.” Finally, wrap it all up with one of two classic French desserts: profiteroles or a rich mousse au chocolat.
The Story House at The Siam
This is one of Bangkok’s most fun eateries, with each of the different rooms inside reflecting a different “personality.” Pair the homemade bread (served with seaweed butter) with the pork and duck rillettes, which come alongside a green onion waffle. Depending on whether you’re feeling more “surf” or “turf” for the main, opt between the black grouper main with smoked eggplant and red pepper jam, or the confit chicken leg. End your meal with a light lavender meringue. This is also one of the few restaurants to have non-meat options for vegetarians.
Dwelling 25 stories above Wireless Road, Char’s food is as stellar as the views. Diners can choose to start the meal with Japanese scallops and braised beef short ribs, or the CHAR signature Caesar salad with sous vide pork belly. Both mains are actually a sort of surf-and-turf—the sous vide chicken breast is served with shrimp and a creamy lobster sauce, while the wagyu beef tenderloin also has tempura shrimp as well as a sweet potato fondant. Dessert is a fun banana cream pie in a jar.
Meaning “sage” in Italian, Salvia is a homey traditional osteria with equally hearty Italian dishes on the menu. The polpettes are stuffed with a mix of ricotta and pecorino, followed by handmade ricotta-pumpkin tortellinis. For the main, there’s cod filet in a juicy tomato-garlic stew, or homemade artisanal Italian sausages with a side of mashed potato in pork jus. Round out your evening in Italy with a duo of classic olive oil cake and pine nut ice-cream.
The menu here is a master class in fusion cuisine, specifically Chef Akira Back’s signature blend of Korean-Japanese comfort food with international twists. The four-course menu begins with a Hokkaido scallop tiradito, followed by black cod and gochujang miso in a crispy lettuce wrap, then Wagyu beef cheeks with truffle braising jus. The Korean rice pudding dessert is served with a sweet and tangy makgeolli ice-cream.
Run by the same group as OJI at the Amanta Hotel, OJI Praditmanutham offers the same stellar omakase experience as its Sathon sibling. The fact that the OJI name regularly tops people’s lists of favorite omakase restaurants is a testament to the brand’s commitment to “cospa” (i.e. cost performance). After all, where else will you find an affordable 12-course omakase meal made with the freshest, high-quality ingredients? On the sushi side of things, you have ika, kuruma ebi, and anago, and that’s not mentioning the non-sushi items such as the bara mini don and the fluffy castella.
Err Rustic Urban Thai
Diners can expect locally-sourced top-quality ingredients and full-bodied Thai tastes in the various fermented, grilled, and stir-fried dishes. The starter and entrées are both served in a Thai home-style assortment platter. The menu includes crispy rice balls with salted mackerel, northern-style sticky rice and sausage, crispy batter-fried squid, and braised pork belly and ribs. And for dessert, a refreshing coconut ice-cream.
The New York-born chain has been delivering modern Japanese flavors with snazzy showmanship since 1964—and you can enjoy the show yourself right on Bangkok’s riverside. The crazy salmon roll starter features Benihana’s signature spicy mayonnaise. Pick between the Kurobata pork or hibachi chicken main (both come with the signature garlic fried rice), and take in the show as the chef prepares your meal at the teppanyaki table right in front of you. Dessert is a classic homemade matcha ice-cream with azuki bean and dango.
