Three amazing places for dinner in Bangkok,Thailand.

1.Issaya Siamese Club.


Hosted in a classy Thai Villa that consists of an indoor dinning room and a beautiful outdoor terrace,this almost "hidden" restaurant must be your first choice when in Bangkok.Despite the fact that it is located away from the city's main restaurant areas,it gathers more and more people everyday and definitely gains their love.
Issaya Siamese Club is ranked -not by chance- among Asia's fifty Best Restaurants.It is an ambitious idea of three partners,the most famous of which is the popular and extraordinarily capable Chef Ian Kittichai.
Kittichai is an expert in Thai Cuisine,promotes fresh,high quality ingredients from the local market and combines international,dynamic cooking techniques.All these are reflected in the menu and form the number one reason for its success.


 MY EXPERIENCE: I just fell in love with the gracefully decorated indoor part of the restaurant (where my table was) and with the whole relaxed atmosphere.The outdoor part is also delicate,with a pretty garden,so comfortable and warm.
The food was,honestly,beyond any expectation.All dishes were very well cooked and absolutely tasty.Main courses were the highlights:Beef ribs,double cooked and woked with sweet chilli sauce and,indeed,the "Mussuman Gae"(Mussuman Curry Lamb),one of the Chef's signature dishes which fairly is the best option.
The menu also includes well prepared cocktails and a satisfying wine selection.The service is very attentive and the staff considerably helpful.


 Although it's a bit pricey,it is certainly worth the money.Issaya Siamese Club submits a great dining experience since it introduces Thai -one of the world's most exciting and creative cuisines- in a superb way.
TIP:Make sure that a taxi will drive you there,otherwise(by metro for example) you will probably get lost.

2.The Never Ending Summer.
 Located in a quiet residential area beside the Chao Phraya(River),this spot used to be an old warehouse which was renovated,remodeled and turned into a charming restaurant.Decorated in industrial style,with brick walls,inox light fittings,mainly black furniture and a big open kitchen,this place provides a really cool and comfy environment.All you need for a fabulous dinner.It is a bit hard to get there,but this restaurant is well worth a visit. The food is delightful.The Never Ending Summer offers original Thai Cuisine in a more trendy way.All ingredients are carefully sourced.All vegetables and herbs are local.


MY EXPERIENCE: All selected dishes were more than savory: A fresh chilli salad with shrimps,an extraordinary crab omelette,a terrific stir fried crab with curry,pepper and celery and a delicious Rib eye with Thai herbs.All perfectly cooked and very well presented.The nice food coupled with the decent selection of cocktails and wines and the pleasant service,make The Never Ending Summer a good bet for foodies and justify why this place was embraced by many people (local or not) since its opening in December 2013.




3.The Verandah @ Mandarin Oriental Bangkok.


 Being a part of the historic and pompous Mandarin Oriental the Verandah,as its name reveals, is a balcony right next to the Chao Phraya.It is a fine restaurant that offers all day dining in a cozy atmosphere and a wonderful landscape,especially at night.The menu is "international",as it includes dishes from both East and West.This restaurant which is marked by high quality food,innovative cooking methods and splendid scenery, must be a "not to be missed" spot when in the city.
MY EXPERIENCE: Having arrived in Bangkok late in the evening,i actually didn't have many choices for dinner.So,i checked out the late night options.I decided to give The Verandah a try and thankful i did!
Firstly,i was totally amazed.The location was magical.The Verandah is the appropriate place for a romantic dinner,overlooking the boats that peacefully sail along the river.Such an unforgettable moment!
I tried dishes from the Asian part of the menu.Specifically,Thai. Fried rice with a fried egg on top and different types of skewers accompanied with a strong chilli sauce.Simply, i couldn't ask for more.The food was full of flavor.I was reminded why i adore Thai Cuisine.As a wine lover,i was excited to see the great wine list.My first night in Bangkok couldn't be more awesome..
