We’ve tried and tasted our way through Bangkok to bring you the best that the city has to offer so you have one less thing to worry about during your vacation to Bangkok! Our Bangkok Golden Escorts can take you in the best restaurants around the city


No trip to Bangkok is complete without eating Thailand’s national dish – Pad Thai. A combination of egg noodles, prawns, spring onions, peanuts and chilli will take you to foodie heaven! Pad Thai is everywhere in Bangkok and can be picked up easily at every market. However, if you’re looking for something more from your Pad Thai choice, head to THIP SAMAI – the Bangkok restaurant where Pad Thai was born. During World War II, a lady called Mrs Samat Baisamut opened up her first restaurant called “Pad Thai Pratu-Phi” in Western Bangkok. Her Pad Thai was so good, it even had the Prime Minister’s backing as he recommended it to state visitors when they arrived. However, people in the area grew jealous of her success forcing her to move and open up her new restaurant, now called ‘THIP SAMAI’ in 1966. Prices here are competitive and you’ll be getting a taste of Thai history thrown in too!
Address: Thip Samai is at 313 Maha Chai Road, Samran Rat, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok 10200.


Bangkok is famous for its extravagant all-you-can-eat seafood buffets with a range of different price tags. However, if you’re looking for excellent quality and reasonable prices, SOFITEL BANGKOK SUKHUMVIT HOTEL hosts the finest, authentic Seafood Night Market Buffet with the best selection of international and local seafood specialities at their in-house restaurant Voila! Every Friday and Saturday night. The feast includes Alaskan king crab, fresh oysters, thai mussels and live stations where they offer fresh sushi and sashimi and other dishes made to order. The highlight of this gormet buffet would be the baked Canadian Blue Lobster, seasoned with garlic and chilli butter, which is served to each person. Can it get any better?! Oh yes, it can.

Address: Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, 189 Sukhumvit Road Soi 13-15, Klongtoey Nua, Wattana,10110 Bangkok.

Siam Wisdom has an extensive menu of exotic Thai dishes with mouth-watering flavours inspired by years of Thai culinary wisdom.

Address: 66 Khwaeng Khlong Tan Nuea, Khet Watthana, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand.


Som Taam roughly translates to Papaya Salad and is another classic, delicious Thai dish that is a must-try during your visit to Bangkok that can be found on almost every street corner! However, a restaurant called BANN SOMTUM which literally means ‘House of Papaya Salad’ comes highly recommended as one of the best Som Taam dishes in the city. They have a wide range of variations of Papaya Salad from original, to seafood, to deep fried! Som Taam dishes range from 60-90 baht which is incredibly cheap! But be warned. This dish may look innocent and light but not only is it exploding with an array of flavours, but it packs some heat! So be careful when ordering Som Taam and if you don’t like spicy food, ask for your dish to be ‘mai pet’ – not spicy! However, this restaurant serves a ton of other traditional Thai dishes so make sure you come hungry!
Address: Sathorn Square, 9 1 soi, Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand.


So you’ve just finished up your traditional Thai meal and looking for that something sweet to complete the whole Thai dining experience. The most popular dessert in Bangkok, which Thai people go crazy over – and we don’t blame them because you will too! – is Mango Sticky Rice. It’s a combination of sweet locally grown Mango with pudding rice and condensed milk. It may sound too much for your western belly to take, but I guarantee as soon as you have a spoonful, you will be running back for more! You will see many street vendors selling the sweet goodness and is perfect for a dessert or even an afternoon snack. However, during April to May it may be a little bit harder to find as it is outside of the mango season. Luckily, there is a chain of permanent mango dessert stores located in many of Bangkok mega malls called YENLY YOURS. They have shops in all the major shopping malls such as Central, Siam Center and Terminal 21 and boasts air conditioning which can be a welcome relief from the smouldering heat. Where ever you choose to go for your breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will be sure to find amazing, delicious, authentic restaurants everywhere in all areas of bustling Bangkok. So don’t be afraid to get stuck in, try the local delicacies, sit amongst the locals and treat yourself to the best high-quality food this humongous city has to offer!
