Bangkok Restaurants and Dining

(Bangkok, Thailand)

Waterfront dining next to the Chao Phraya RiverWithout doubt, Bangkok is home to the biggest selection of restaurants in the whole of Thailand. When dining out in Bangkok, you will never be more than a short walk from a restaurant, coffee shop or food cart, each of which has its own merits.

For many, the delicious Thai cuisine is hard to beat, with spicy soups, noodle dishes, fragrant jasmine rice, aromatic red and green curries, and specialities from both northern and southern Thailand. Ingredients often used within Thai restaurants in Bangkok include ginger, chillies, coconut milk, fresh turmeric, lemongrass and lime juice.

Those who prefer something less exotic will be pleased to find many European-style eateries and other dining venues. These include restaurants specialising in Chinese, Japanese, French, Indian, Italian and Mexican cuisines, amongst others.
