Must-Eat Restaurants in Bangkok - Tastes you've never experienced before!

Definitely one of the most interesting cities in Southeast Asia, Bangkok hosts an amazing blend of culture, shopping, nightlife, food and entertainment. Here is a list of the best restaurants you should visit when you're in Bangkok.


Raan Jay Fai

Jay Fai might be a familiar name as she gained international fame for becoming the first street food vendor to be awarded a Michelin star. This, however, made her quiet stall into a very busy one. Serving some absolutely delicious food, the wait times can be quite staggering taking up to 4 or 5 hours. Martha Stewart once referred to her as the best cook in all of Thailand. The crab omelette is Jay Fai's signature dish and one that while pricey at THB 1,000 is absolutely worth it. As big as a burrito, it is stuffed full of sweet and rich crab meat that's deep fried and then served with a side of tangy sweet chilli sauce. It's an experience unlike any other and is definitely worth the wait. You literally need not wait, however, as you can call them up or email them for a reservation.


Nhong Rim Klong

Nhong Rim Klong isn't a restaurant but a street food stall located next to a canal. The setting might not be picturesque, but the food is absolutely divine. The kitchen where the cooks prepare the food is on top of a bridge, but the tables are by the canal. Nhong Rim Klong is incredibly popular and as such will require you to endure a wait. If dining in is not an option, you can always get some takeout. Since they close up at about 4:30 p.m. it's best to go during the off hours so that you avoid the lunchtime rush. When you're looking for accommodation with a conference room in Bangkok, you'll have plenty of excellent suites to choose from, like Emporium Suites by Chatrium for instance. Nhong Rim Klong's most popular dish is its pad kee mao crab which is a stir-fry of big crab chunks with eggplant, chilli, sweet basil, ginger and onions. Another succulent dish to try here is the goong tod gratiem which is made of jumbo shrimp that's fried in garlic.


Wattana Panich

Located so close to Nhong Rim Klong, Wattana Panich is a short walk away and is famous for their Thai beef noodles. You shouldn't miss the place as you'll see a massive cauldron bubbling with beef stew right at the front of the shop. Wattana Panich's famous beef can be consumed with noodles or served on the side with some rice. Tender, delicious and aromatic, the dishes here are a treat for your senses. Wattana Panich is open daily from 6 in the morning to 7 in the evening and is quite affordable, with their beef costing around TBH 100 per serving. If you're more of a goat person, they also serve a delicious goat dish called kuay teow pae which might even be tender than the beef.
