I've eaten with friends and colleagues in all these restaurants in (greater) Bangkok. I'm no food expert, but I do know what I like! Many of my older reviews were also published in Japanese on newsclip.be タイ発ニュース速報. Whether you're after Thai food, or craving a Mexican taco, Japanese buffet or fish & chips, you can find it all here. (2016: I'm adding my Tripadvisor reviews here)

* A friendly WARNING: restaurants close, change and move regularly, so before you go make sure to check *

Somtum Bangkok ★

Star full.svgStar full.svgStar full.svgStar full.svgStar empty.svg This great Thai-Isan (north-eastern) restaurant is located in a Thai-style house in a quiet street off Paholyothin Road. There are 2 wooden terraces surrounded by green outside, and inside you can enjoy the air-conditioned space on two levels decorated with Thai art.

The standard Isan fare like som tam (papaya salad), kay yaang (grilled chicken) and sticky rice is delicious, but the special mushroom dishes and ice cream desserts

Rosarin Restaurant and Bar

Star full.svgStar full.svgStar half.svgStar empty.svgStar empty.svg This cool and quiet restaurant annex coffee shop is part of the next-door Viengtai Hotel. It’s located just behind backpackers paradise Khao San, an oasis in the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

The air-conditioned space has French-style wrought furniture and the floor tiles I would expect somewhere on a terrace outside in Europe, and you’ll definitely feel like you’re not in Thailand.
