Back to the Mandarin Oriental, this time for a birthday dinner. The location, ambiance, food and service are always second-to-none. The evening starts with a boat trip from the hotel site across the Chao Phraya river to the restaurant site on the opposite bank. A table next to the river provides a wonderful setting to relax, watch the boats go... More

We were staying at the Peninsula so used the hotel boats to hop along the river to this restaurant. A lovely way to arrive for dinner! We had a lovely cocktail and a bottle of wine with our meal (extensive drinks lists). We're used to ordering Thai food in London by having a variety of dishes to share. Fortunately we... More

From my last review on second visit food was worse than the 1st visit but this time on my third visit the food was just like Thai food in one of those 'not so good' Thai restaurant oversea if you know what I mean. This time we could not be bothered about the tasting set anymore since our experience on... More

The best part of the thai restaurant at the mandarin is the boat ride across the river. The live shows are touristy but nice. Take a table outside if weather permits. The chicken wings were outstanding, tofu rolls were good. I would avoid the fish cakes and the spring rolls. The mince chicken with chillies and hot basil was average... More

This may be of concern to some as a little touristy but we found the balance between the meal and the entertsinment about right. Its a good romantic night for a couple starting with the boat ride across to the restaurant and wr had a good table near the stage. None of the tables face the stage so you do... More

make sure you are seated outside to experience the smells, heat and life on a living river where nothing really changed since the Oriental opened 140 years ago

Everything was perfect....except for that one little thing. Getting there is an experience in itself as you are take the ferry across from the hotel to the restaurant - how cool is that😀 They struggled a bit with my reservation but we got to the table eventually. Word of advice, insist on the full wine list (the main menu shows... More

This fancy Thai dining experience is perfect for a romantic evening out. I highly recommend first going to the Mandarin Oriential Hotel and taking their special riverboat across to the Sala Rim Naam. It's a magical place, the banyan trees festively decorated with tiny white lights and tropical walks with reflecting pools. Some of the best Thai food I have... More

I invited 2 friends to Sala Rim Naam for dinner and cultural performance this evening. My expectation of this supposedly a vanguard of Thai foods fell far short. I was disappointed with the foods. For a restaurant that is affiliated with a cooking school and great hotel, the Thai foods served are below par. The tom yam koong was bland... More

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.
