10 Best Restaurants to Enjoy in the Sathorn Area in Bangkok, Thailand


Sathorn Road is home to some of Bangkok's best dining. Here, you can literally dine in the stars, enjoying upscale food at some of the rooftop restaurants such as Saffron in the Banyan Tree, or gushing over fine haute gastronomy at the chic Park Society in the Sofitel So, where you can enjoy foie gras and fine seafood while overlooking Lumpini Park. Some of Asia's most noted dining is also found here, like Nahm, Michelin chef David Thompson's award winning restaurant, and the only Thai restaurant in the world to make the prestigious Restaurant Magazine's "Top 50 Restaurants in the World" list. Also here is the traditional Thai stalwart Supanniga Eating Room, with the same outstanding authentic hard to find Thai cuisine as its same name branch in Thonglor. Elegant Italian is also represented here, and Il Bolognese makes some of Bangkok's most outstanding pasta and pizzas in an elegant setting. For something far less expensive but just as tasty, Baan Som Tam serves up mouth watering Isaan northeastern Thai cooking for a pittance and the crowds packing it each night attest to just how great the food is. Distances on Sathorn Road are not far apart, and BTS Skytrain and MRT subway stations make the area well connected, so you can plan on spending a lot of time dining here with this handy guide.
