For lunch: the remarkable plate was...a simple mixed Satay ! Chicken, shrimp, pork, perfect side salad and peanut sauce. Classy service, the breeze from the river mellowed the heat. Good mixed drinks. All just perfect

Great location in a great hotel but I remember it as it was fifty years ago when the garden was full of birds and monkeys roomed the grounds. It is a shame they added that new tower but then the hotel is still lovely.

The location is perfect, the service, wine list and the food delicious. We suggest the Mandarin fish. Prepare the pocket because the investment will be compatible with the place.

I have lunch here every trip and it is a tranquil oasis. The setting, with wonderful views of the river, is lovely and service excellent. With plenty of choice on the menu this is well worth a trip. Unfortunately now, unless you are resident, you cannot hire a long tailed boat trip around the klongs from here. Otherwise I love... More

My partner and I choose to be seated outside right next to the river, even though it was a bit warm and humid but the breeze did cool us down. We and other party (4) were the only groups outside.

We had booked a table at Riverside Terrace for their Saturday evening BBQ - we did not get a table at riverside, but perhaps not so important after all... started with a couple of drinks, had a pleasant introduction to the buffet and after enjoying our drinks, and selected snacks we chose a nice sparkling wine to go,with the many...

We visited the International Buffet for dinner and had a most pleasant few hours by the side of the river. Staff were hugely attentive without being over-obtrusive and they even had a jacket stand to hang my jacket upon at the table. The buffet itself is wide, varied, in fact totally huge with pretty much everything you could want in... More

One of the nicest ways to have dinner in Bangkok is at the scenic riverside. Don't let the buffet style scare you off. The set-up of the food and the tables is in a way that you are not bothered by guests walking from their table to the buffet and back. The atmosphere is informal and also elegant; people dress...

After eleven years I was back in Bangkok and we dined twice on the Riverside terrace. Although we stayed at the Shangri La hotel this time, it always feels like coming home at the Oriental hotel. For sure we will stay here the next time. There is no other place in Bangkok! We enjoyed the atmosphere, kind service of staff... More

A night at the river

Enjoying an idyllic setting on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, The Riverside Terrace offers guests alfresco dining with a beautiful view.

A delicious international buffet is accompanied by a live band every night. Alongside Indian tandoori ovens, an open fire rotisserie and a large sushi counter, we also serve a choice of Lebanese mezze, Japanese Teppanyaki, fresh bread, fresh seafood and mouth-watering barbecued meats. Our famous dessert station boasts a variety of delicious puddings as well as decadent offerings from our flambe table.

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
