Top Spots to Chill by the Chao Phraya River
We can’t imagine a trip to Bangkok without visiting the Chao Phraya River. What better way to finish a full day of riverside adventures than by finding a nice little spot to just enjoy a meal with an amazing view. Check out our four faves.
Supanniga Eating Room Tha Tien
With a view looking over the Chao Phraya River and Wat Arun, Supanniga Eating Room at Tha Tien is definitely a spot not to missed. The restaurant’s modern Thai decor still feels pleasantly homey and the outdoor terrace is perfect for viewing the sunset as you sip on a Thai-inspired cocktail. Indulge in hard-to-find local recipes such as Pork Belly Curry with Cha Muang Leaves, but remember to save room for desserts such as Thai Tea Panna Cotta.
Steve Cafe & Cuisine
Steve Cafe & Cuisine is a perfect dinner spot to end your day after exploring Bangkok. This is a cosy restaurant perfect for the whole family if you love old-school Southern Thai cooking and colourful decor. Expect flavourful dishes such as Gaeng Tai Pla or Stir fried Melindjo leaves with eggs.
Baan Rim Nam-Be My Guest
If you’re looking for an open-air spot where you can also enjoy views of the Chao Phraya River, then give Baan Rim Nam - Be My Guest restaurant a go. This no-fuss spot serves many Thai favourite dishes such as Shrimp Cake, Whole Sea Bass with sour and spicy sauce and Stirred Fried Squid in Curry Sauce. The prices here are very affordable, so come hungry.
Samsara Cafe & Meal
This charming wooden house next to the Chao Phraya River is a top spot to just chill and enjoy the sunset over Bangkok. It is almost as if you’ve stepped into a friend’s house as you take a seat in one of the mismatched leather sofas. Enjoy their sharable Thai-Japanese fusion plates such as Larb Tuna or Crispy Thai-style Omelette with a few cold beers to end your day.
