Sirocco at the State Tower
Bangkok restaurant reviews
Bangkok restaurant reviews, I guess I’m allowed to call myself a Bon Vivant given my obsession with eating out at good restaurants. Lets start with the most spectacular restaurant in the whole city. The view from the Sky bar at Sirocco is amazing, the restaurant is very popular with the trendy Bangkok crowd, the food is good but the price is ridiculously high.
Sirocco on the 64th floor.
Sirocco is one of the world’s great Sky bars.
Seafood salad at Sirocco
As you would expect the food at Sirocco is excellent.
Centre-Point hotel from Sirocco.
A very good hotel near the river and the Sky train.
Magnificent sunset at Sirocco.
I’m sure Bangkok has more sky bars than any city in the world.
Breeze on the 53rd floor.
Here is a tip if you want to save some money, have a couple of pre dinner drinks at the Sky bar on the 64th floor then go down to Breeze on the 53rd floor and dine there, much better value.
Spectacular lights at Breeze.
Far less expensive than Sirocco.

The 5 star Shangri-La hotel on the river has several restaurants to choose from. I found the best value was their incredible buffet featuring Sushi, Alaskan crab, shrimp, Dim Sum, soups, B-B-Q & a terrific selection of deserts. Free flow wine & beer was included for 2,250 Baht or $90 AUD.
There was a nice surprise when I paid the bill, received a 15% discount for using my Platinum Visa card. So the price came down to $65. Considering I had 5 glasses of wine from Chile, it was super deal.
Seafood at the Shangri-La
If you want a great buffet in Bangkok look no further.
The Shangri-La has a dinner cruise leaving at 7.30 every night.
Vintage at Silom
What a great find this was, I was strolling around the back streets of Silom and stumbled across this very nice Italian restaurant with super friendly staff.

Fettuccine with scallops & rock lobster at Vintage
Very good food at Vintage.
Vintage at Silom
You will find the Vintage at 19 Silom Soi 21
Basilico Pizzeria in Soi 33
At the other side of the city in Sukhumvit Soi 33 is another very good Italian restaurant Basilico Pizzeria. Good atmosphere and excellent pizzas. Have a pre dinner drink at “The Office” a very good sports bar just around the corner at Sukhumvit Soi 33, Wattana.
Bangkok restaurant reviews
For over 10 years I have been going to the Bus Stop in Sukhumvit Soi 4 Nana to have their Oxtail stew. I spent 3 days in Bangkok last week and managed to have it twice for lunch even though the price has almost doubled in 4 years, it is still only 350 Baht or $10 AUD.
I introduced Pothole & he is also hooked.
Here is my friend John Martin AKA Pothole at the Bus stop Sukhumvit Soi 4 Nana.
I had an unhappy experience at the Bust Stop in Soi 4 Nana in Bangkok 2 weeks ago. For many years I have been ordering the oxtail stew which is fantastic, lunch on the Thursday was excellent, then I returned for dinner on Friday night and they only served 2 pieces of oxtail instead of the normal 3. I complained as the price of B350 remained the same, well the chef was quite rude and unhelpful and refused to make it right, so I paid for my wine and left. After around 16 years of enjoying this great dish I guess it is time for a break, just saying………
Bus Stop Soi 4 Nana
Don’t expect too much at the Bus Stop, it’s a good value bar with excellent low priced food, and the Oxtail is to die for.
Hanrahans Irish pub
Right next door to the Bus Stop is Hanrahans Irish pub & sports bar. Good pub food and lots of screens showing all the popular sports.
Quintessential English breakfast.
Breakfast 180 Baht or $6 AUD.
Monsoon restaurant in Soi 8 Nana, great food.
A couple of streets away from the Bus Stop is a terrific restaurant in Soi 8, Monsoon.
Calzone at Monsoon in Bangkok restaurants reviews
Bill Austin from England likes Monsoon.
Beef & Oyster sauce at Monsoon.
Prior to the beef I had a very good pumpkin soup, my friend had an Australian steak which was magnificent.
Great prawn dish at Monsoon
One of my favourite Bangkok restaurants.
Terrific new restaurant.
Terrific new Bangkok restaurant, the Pirate Chambre at Chidlom. Hard to find but worth the effort. The fabulous lamb shank was only B480.
Enjoying a red wine at Pirate Chambre
Put this excellent restaurant on your bucket list.
Lobsters, New England Clam Chowder and a good selection of oysters (Kumamoto, Calm Cove, Royal, etc…) and fresh home-made pasta. Lots of choices at this popular establishment. The lobster roll is Crab & Claw’s signature dish, however it will set you back around B1000.
Always good value at Gulliver’s in Sukhumvit Soi 5, excellent bar to watch your favorite sports. Food is consistently good & terrific atmosphere for a sports bar as is the one in Beach Rd Pattaya.
Bangkok from the Moon bar at Vertigo
Vertigo and Moon Bar at the Banyan Tree Hotel located at 21/100 Sathon Tai, Thung Maha Mek, Sathon, Bangkok 10500. Another breath-taking view of the Bangkok skyline. Sit back and enjoy the Bangkok city view.
A great variety of food here.
