  • Dao Tai
    4.5 stars

    Highly recommended.

    508/26 Th Phran Nok, Thonburi
    T: (02) 412 2385

    Dao Tai specializes in southern Thai, which can mean a blistering tongue and sweat dripping from every surface. But here the dishes seem to be perfectly balanced — hot, yes, but also fragrant with fresh herbs and smoothed out with just the right amount of fat or sweetness. This is a curry shop, ... read more

    Rom Ngao Indo-Chin Restaurant
    4 stars

    Fantastic northern Vietnamese

    Charoen Nakhon Road (between soi 20 and soi 24), Thonburi, Bangkok
    T: (024) 385 921, (086) 514 0908

    Situated on non-touristy Charoen Nakhon Road but within walking distance from Krung Thonburi BTS, this no frills open-fronted restaurant claims to be the only place in Bangkok focusing on northern Vietnamese cuisine, and they do a great job of it too. Rom ngao is a Thai term that means "in the ... read more

    Ree Ree Khaosan Restaurant
    4 stars

    Great Thai food near Wat Arun

    Wang Doerm Road, Thonburi, Bangkok
    T: (084) 933 7222

    This small, bright and accessible air-con restaurant a short walk from Wat Arun is the perfect place to rejuvenate after a morning of sightseeing. It's named after a popular Thai children's game and has nothing to do with the notorious backpacker district across the river. An extensive menu can ... read more

    Be My Guest Bar
    4 stars

    Don't miss the chicken wings

    217 Charoennakron Plaza, Charoennakron Rd
    T: (02) 437 2653

    This is another laid-back riverside joint with some great views and a nice vibe. The kitchen turns out some excellent chicken wings (pik gai tawt) and fried air-dried pork (muu deet bing) with most plates costing around 100 baht. There are often specials on drinks, including towers of beers and ... read more

  • Zoom 4 Zoom 5
    4 stars

    Laid back spot for a drink

    Soi Wang Lang, Wang Lang Market, Siriraj
    T: (02) 226 1745

    This small pub on the second floor is a laid back place to have a drink and some excellent gap gleam — food served while drinking. It's actually a self-service place, with drinks and food ordered at a window, and the prices reflect it. Large bottles of beer are only 65 baht, and plates of food ... read more

  • Baan Luk Chup
    3.5 stars

    Almost too pretty to eat

    Arun Ammarin Rd (near Soi 39), Thonburi, Bangkok
    T: (02) 434 3834; (02) 433 8841; (02) 424 8606

    Pleasing to both the tongue and eye, luk chup are brightly coloured bite-size sweets that often resemble mini-fruits. The folks at Baan Luk Chup run a small luk chup factory where the sweets are handcrafted and then sold at an inviting air-con cafe around the corner. Luk chup are a distinctly ... read more

    Khlong San Pier Market
    3.5 stars

    Local munchings

    Khlong San Pier, Thonburi

    Continuing straight from Khlong San Pier is Khlong Plaza, a warren of stands selling trendy clothes, jeans, accessories, shoes, and everything you might need to look like a hipster. Prices are good, and you're bound to find some excellent (fake) products made by famous designers. Along the back ... read more

  • Streetfood: Wang Lang Market
    3.5 stars

    Great snacking spot

    Phran Nok Rd, near Wang Lang Pier, Thonburi

    Located at a busy cross-river and express boat ferry pier, and right next to a large hospital complex, the Wang Lang Market is a great opportunity to snack your way to satiety. Getting here is easy as both cross-river ferries and the Chao Phraya Express boats stop here. Come off the pier and ... read more
