From the owners of longtime favorite Pla Dib in Ari comes DibDib, similarly decorated with raw cement only with a DJ station that resembles an orange shipping container sat in the middle of the space. The menu contains some familiar dishes, but there are plenty new ones to try like salmon tartar with white asparagus (B300) and Langkawi bivalves with sake (B300).

You have to pick your time wisely to get a table at this popular teppanyaki and yakitori chain from Nagoya. That’s down to the welcoming vibe rolled out by the chefs (all from Japan) whose banter and showmanship light up the premises. Try the okonomiyaki (Japanese pizza, B270), while yakitori starts from B40 (B420 for 12 sticks) and sake from B200.

The name says it all. Kodang Talay gets the plum location right by the river where it serves seafood in the classic Thai-style. It’s easy to look past the simple decorations when you’re feasting on deep-fried seabass in fish sauce, au suan (pan-fried oyster with egg) and stir-fried Thai scallop with butter.
