10 Best Romantic Dining Spots to Try in Bangkok



Bangkok is truly a city for romantic dining. The choices of cuisine, views, and fine food are endless, and you are assured of having a memorable night out with some of these superb spots. For lovely dining along the Chao Phraya River, the Mandarin Oriental's Le Normandie (classy French) provides charming river views to go with your meal, as does the hidden away Steve Cafe, set in a classic old Thai house looking out at the Rama VIII Bridge. But the best experience has to be actually sitting on the river itself, enjoying fine food with the waves literally lapping right up to your cocktail on the superb Supanniga Cruise.
