Best Restaurants for Group Dining in Bangkok

When it comes to dining out with a large party, Bangkok offers a vast array of possibilities. You can opt for an amusing evening at the wacky Katron Flying Chicken, where waiters ride unicycles and catapult grilled chickens to your table, or perhaps head out to the other extreme, for a gastronomic molecular feast at Sra Bua. For a real Thai group night out, check out Tawandang, where there are live dance and music shows to accompany the huge plates of ribs, Thai dishes, and home brewed beer. There are also plenty of ethnic dining choices for large parties in town, whether it be Indian cuisine at elegant Rang Mahal, Japanese fusion at Zuma, or fine French at L'Appart. For great Thai food with plenty of space, try the hard to find traditional cooking at The Local, dine in style to traditional Thai dancers and total elegance at the Mandarin Oriental's Sala Rim Naam along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, or eat for a good cause at Cabbages and Condoms. For something really unique, bring the group over to Bangkok's longest feasting table, the 25 meter Long Table, which is suitable for 45 people, and serves up Thai fusion and signature drinks while offering up one of the best skyline views in town. There will be plenty of room and good cheer for all.
