Best Thai Restaurants in Bangkok

A few years back, dining in a fancy Thai restaurant that charges B300 for a bowl of kaeng som was crazy nonsense reserved for moneyed tourists. No sane Thai would willingly do that. A few years later, a new generation of chefs (many of them from abroad) brings their passion and dedication to Thai flavors and rare local ingredients to the fore, creating gourmet plates that prove that Thai cuisine can be worth the fancy prices. From the streets of Thonglor to upscale Sathorn neighborhood, here are our picks for the best Thai restaurants in Bangkok.

Lhong Tou

A group of friends, comprised of two interior designers and a food stylist, have ventured into a café business that highlights caffeinated brews with dim sum bites. Here, they recommend pairing a cup of tea or coffee with a number of fried dim sum such as fried custard lava buns and miniature barbeque pork buns. They also serve boiled rice with eight savory sides and condiments made from ingredients that have been carefully handpicked from noteworthy shops in Chinatown.
