When only the best will do.

Here are our top neighborhood picks based on BK's annual Top Tables guide to Bangkok’s 100 best restaurants. Discover more awesome Phloen Chit tips here.

 

Artur Steak

 

(Steak) After running some very successful hotel restaurants, Artur Kluczewski packed up all his secrets and opened up his own place. The result is a steakhouse that offers tableside carving, high-end beef and hearty sides, but with a personal touch hotels can’t compete with. The meat, too, often outdoes them, thanks to Artur’s unerring eye in selecting only the best produce.

G/F, Bliston Suwan Park Residence, 9 Soi Tonson, Phloen Chit Rd. 02-658-6288, 081-172-7189. Open daily 11:30am-2pm, 6-10pm

 

Baan 

 

(Thai) Chef Thitid Tassanakajohn (of the one Michelin-star Le Du) retreats from the modernist culinary techniques he learned in New York in favor of homey, everyday Thai meals. Co-run by his younger brother Chaisiri, Baan dishes out unpretentious meals which prove chic, high-quality dining can be delivered at pocket-friendly prices—and in a strikingly modern yet inviting space.

139/5 Wireless Rd., 02-655-8995. Open Wed-Mon 11:30am-2:30pm, 5:30-10:30pm

Exclusively for Citi credit card members Get a complimentary Pra Kung valued THB 350 when spending THB 1,500 or more /sales slip (limit 1 dish /card / table /sales slip) Today – 30 Sep 19

 

 

Elements 

 

(International) The Okura Prestige Bangkok’s executive chef Alva Roa worked in tandem with the two Michelin-star Ciel Bleu restaurant at the Okura Amsterdam to reinvent the restaurant’s menu last year while holding on to its France-meets-Japan approach to fine dining. Produce from Satsuma beef to Hokkaido scallop get treated with a delicate finesse that really shows off the produce.

25/F, The Okura Prestige, 57 Wireless Rd., 02-687-9000. Open Tue-Sat 6-10:30pm

Gianni Ristorante

 

(Italian) Italian fine dining in Bangkok would not be where it is today without Gianni Favro. The longtime chef has delighted local rainmakers and power movers for the past 20 years with Mediterranean-inflected dishes, educating diners on the nuances of Dover sole, burrata and handmade pasta along the way. The refined setting echoes the restaurant’s reputation.

34/1 Soi Tonson, Phloen Chit Rd., 02-252-1619, 02-652-2922. Open daily 11:30am-2pm, 6-10pm

 

Lenzi Tuscan Kitchen 

 

(Italian) Dark wood and starched tablecloths project an upscale Italian moodiness, but the tone is lightened by the charismatic chef Francesco Lenzi, who works the room offering recommendations and doling out the occasional sample. Cured meats and cheeses from Lenzi’s own family farm in Tuscany star alongside creative pasta dishes and wood-fired meats.

Ruamrudee Soi 2, Wireless Rd., 02-001-0116. Open daily 11:45am-2pm, 6-10:30pm

Exclusively for Citi credit card members Get a complimentary tiramisu for 2 persons valued THB 280 when spending via Citi credit card (limit 1 dish /card /table /sales slip) Today – 29 Feb 20

 

 

New York Steakhouse 

 

(Steak) Onion soup: check. Caesar salad: check. USA prime steak: check, check and check. NY Steakhouse is both old school and superbly satisfying, from the giant headrests on your wingback dining chair to the mirror polish on the tableside salad-mixing bowl. Head chef Kevin B Thomson takes serious pride in maintaining welcoming and flawless standards.

2/F, JW Marriott, 4 Sukhumvit Soi 2, 02-656-7700 ext. 4240. Open daily 6-11pm

Pizza Massilia 

 

(Italian) Italian chef Luca Appino (La Bottega di Luca) takes an Italy-meets-France approach to pizzas. Pumped out of two massive ovens from Italy, the pizzas here are delicate and refined affairs that often bear extravagant toppings. To that end, try the Mortadella truffle option with organic tomato sauce, fior di latte mozzarella and black truffle sauce.

15/1 Soi Ruamrudee, Phloen Chit Rd., 02-651-5091. Open daily 11:30am-2:30pm, 5:30-11pm. Other branch: Sukhumvit Soi 49

Penthouse Grill

 

(American) The multi-story showpiece steakhouse atop the Park Hyatt goes all out. The interior of walnut woods and marble is stunning. The menu of red meat and seafood jumps straight to the premium stuff. The cocktails hit the price-to-quality sweet spot. This is prime date-night material.

34-36/F, Park Hyatt, 88 Wireless Rd., 02-011-7480. Open daily noon-2pm, 6-10:30pm

 

Saneh Jaan 

 

(Thai) Ask locals where they recommend for the pinnacle of Thai dining and they’ll likely say here. Old-fashioned gaeng ranjuan (a shrimp paste-based soup) and gai baan kua bai jan (stir-fried chicken with wild basil) star in a modernist dining room with vaulted ceilings and red design touches.

Glasshouse at Sindhorn, 130-132 Wireless Rd., 02-650-9880. Open daily 11:30am-2pm, 6-10pm

Exclusively for Citi credit card members Get a complimentary Thai dessert valued THB 300 when spending via Citi credit card (limit 1 dish /card / table /sales slip) Today – 30 Dec 19

 

 

Savelberg 

 

(European) Precise. Elegant. French. Henk Savelberg does fine dining in the classic sense of the phrase. Some of your dishes may have a modern flourish—be it shocking orange tableware or neat rows of faux-fish scales atop poached lobster—but the restrained flavor combinations and formal graces are as polished as they come.

G/F, Oriental Residence, 110 Wireless Rd., 02-252-8001. Open Mon-Sat noon-2:30pm, 6-9:30pm

Exclusively for Citi credit card members Get 10% discount on food only Today – 31 Dec 19

 

 

Sushi Zo 

 

(Japanese) Hokkaido-born head chef Toshi Onishi prepares 18-course omakase dinners that stray from the staunch rules of traditional Edo-style sushi. This means your shima aji (striped horse mackerel) nigiri might come marinated in olive oil and topped with Sichuan pepper, or your red snapper cured under a smoke dome.

G/F, Athenee Tower, 63 Wireless Rd. 064-809-1849. Open Tue-Sun 6-8pm, 8:30-10:30pm

 

Yamazato 

 

(Japanese) A sushi bar, teppanyaki grill and private dining rooms provide the full force of Japanese “haute cuisine.” The chefs are not the only things imported from Japan; pretty much everything from the fish to the tableware is too. Dinner hours shine a spotlight on six to eight refined courses spotlighting premium seafood and beef.

24/F, The Okura Prestige, 57 Wireless Rd. 02-687-9000. Open daily 6-10:30am, 11:30am-2:30pm, 6-10:30pm

Exclusively for Citi credit card members Get 15% discount on food only for Citi ULTIMA, Citi Prestige, Citi Premier, Citi Preferred and Citi Select card members. Today – 20 Dec 19
