5.) Suppaniga Dinner Cruise
Location: (currently still closed after the pandemic)
One of the unforgettable dining experience was to explore the charm of the Chao Phraya River while enjoying the warmth of a 6-course home cooked Thai meal through Suppaniga Cruise. This is the best way to be introduced to the Capital City of Thailand. It is so interesting to find out that Chao Phraya River is the grand entrance of royalties during ancient times, thus it is also known as ‘River of Kings’. Some of the best sellers that we tried are Amuse Bouche, Mahor, Kratong Tong, Khao Krieb Nahm Jim, Tom Kha Pla Kapong Mapraow-On, Sam Rub Thai and Mango Sticky Rice.

This restaurant is famous on serving “Teishoku” – a very simple yet well-balanced set meal which is served on a tray with a combination of steamed rice, miso soup, a main dish of your choice, vegetable and pickles.
Location: Shangri-la Bangkok, 89 Soi Wat Suan Plu, New Road, Bangrak, Bangkok
As this restaurant gets always fully crowded because of loyal guests from its hotel, this is not our favorite restaurant. We are including this restaurant though because some of our family members are loyal to the Shangri-la brand. (Swipe below photo for more pictures)
