If you want a truly romantic Bangkok meal, forget about going to a restaurant with a river view, better to actually go out on the river itself and eat like a king! Supanniga Cruise, run by the Laorauvirodge family, who operate Supanniga Eating Room, a charming Thai eatery with traditional recipes (that now boasts two branches), along with the Michelin-starred New York Thai restaurant Somtum Der, now have a dinner cruise with the same knockout cuisine that has made the restaurants so famous, serving up fresh giant prawns, along with the Supanniga staple, moo chamuang, a thick pork stew made with flavourful chamuang leaves, a specialty of Trat on the Eastern seaboard. Other items included in the sumptuous six course feast include hor mok puu steamed crab in curry paste, and mangoes with sticky rice. Supanniga has also teamed up with Vesper, one of the city's best cocktail spots, for some outstanding signature drinks. You can choose a sunset cruise with cocktails or champagne served with savouries, which lasts an hour, or go for the six course meal and champagne dinner set, which goes for two hours. The venue is intimate, as the boat can only accommodate 40 guests, and it feels far more like a private dining experience out on the water than a large cruise. The combination of cuisine, locale, and presentation make this one of Bangkok's most romantic options.
- Romantic Dining: "Cocktail cruises start at 4:45pm, while dinner cruises start at 6:15. Give yourself enough time to get to the River City pier if coming to the latter, as there can be rush hour traffic. It's best to take the ferry from Saphan Taksin to access River City."
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: For sumptuous cuisine in Bangkok's romantic river spot, Supanniga Cruise is as amorous as it gets.
