Supanniga Eating Room (Sathorn)
Thonglor's best Thai food moves to Sathorn.
One of Bangkok's favorite Thai restaurants has built its reputation on delicate traditional plates bursting with strong, authentic flavors. The casual decor plays with the vivid yellow of Supanniga flowers, while other references to Eastern Thai culture abound. Don't miss the pu jah (blended crabmeat and pork, seasoned with pepper and steamed inside crab shell), panang nuea lai (beef chunk in red curry) and moo cha muang (stewed pork with herbs and cha muang leaves).
The buzz: The buzzing Sathorn Soi 10-12 neighborhood just got the quality, contemporary Thai restaurant it’s been longing for. Three years after first opening on Thonglor, Supanniga has not only kept up its solid reputation for delicate Thai food, but also held strong on its mission to expand nostalgic Thai flavors to more palates.
The decor: The new space goes for a more modern look than the original branch while still playing on the vivid yellow if supanniga flowers. The design team from Onion studio takes inspiration from Isaan silkweaving culture with a decorative wall installation built up using colorful spools of thread, while tabletops are patterned like loom beaters. On the second floor sits an open balcony that also serves as an exhibition space to show the fabric work of Ease Embroidery design studio. The third floor feels more like an attic, with extra seating, high ceilings and large windows for plenty of natural light.
