We went for lunch at Chaophraya. The view is okay, nothing too fancy. The food was typical Thai food and not really impressive, also slow service since they were quite understaffed. We had to wave so many times (more than 30 minutes!) to catch the...More

Amazing food but really poor service. The veggie variant of my starter arrived as the standard prawn offering in error. That was quickly remedied but then we waited 35 mins for mains. The food was truly exceptional, but if the weather hadn’t been so good...More

If this was about only the quality of the food, I'd have given 6 out of 5 stars — everything was wonderful; very tasty, very authentic, very well cooked and presented; in a word, faultless. Drinks were equally good, especially the many cocktails which we...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
