Restaurants in Old City
Bangkok’s Old City is one of the most attractive neighbourhoods in Bangkok, as many of the buildings have been preserved as they were a hundred years ago. There are restaurants in old shophouses.
Everywhere you go, from the fancy shopping malls downtown, to the grungy streets of Chinatown, to the vast semi-outdoor markets—even in the hyper-touristy areas around the gorgeous wats and palaces in the old city—you’ll find hawkers offering fresh-cooked meals, sometimes eaten straight out of hand, sometimes while perched on little plastic seats around a makeshift picnic table. From street food to high end restaurants, and from Thai food to international, Bangkok is a paradise for any food lover.
Seven Spoons is a destination restaurant promises to tickle your senses in a warm, minimalist gastrobar on the edge of Chinatown. It offers a modern cuisine menu, including Mediterranean influenced dishes and pasta, lovingly made from locally produced and organic ingredients wherever possible.
Brand new Sheepshank Public House is a beacon of modern cuisine on historic, bohemian Phra Arthit Road. Cool minimalist, industrial design in a former boat repai shop, the restaurant features a long and spectacular view of the river and Rama 8 bridge.
Possibly the most famous phad thai joint in the country. The signature version, 'pad thai song-kreung' consists of shrimp roe, prawns, fried egg, fresh crabmeat, ground cuttlefish and sliced mango – very delicious. Beside phad thai, Thip Samai is also known for its freshly squeezed orange juice and ice smoothies with pieces of sliced coconut.
