Top 10 Romantic Restaurants in Thailand

Destination(s): Chiang Mai

Everyone has a different idea about romantic dining, but there are certainly some features that can never go wrong when you want to impress your special someone: exquisite food made from a creative mix of the best locally sourced ingredients, an impressive view from an intimate setting and the service to live up to the occasion. The places we have chosen are quite different in offer and style, but they are sure to satisfy all your romantic whims. Go for some casual, open air dining at Café Andaman or choose to really dine in style at Mei Jiang - the traditional Northern Thai cuisine is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. However, the most popular romantic destination in Bangkok is The Deck, a place that would be lovely even if it didn't serve any food, just because of its location. But when you take into account the refined Thai and Italian mix that is prepared in the kitchen, this place should definitely make it on top of your Thailand culinary list. read more about Top 10 Romantic Restaurants in Thailand

In the Mood for Love: Sushi Bar & Bistro

In the Mood for Love: Sushi Bar & Bistro

  • 9 Sukhumvit 36
  • tel:0-2661-5076
  • Visit website
  • Sukhumvit 36, Bangkok, 10110

If you find something sensual about sushi, this is a perfect romantic setting for it. Soft blues dominate the room and dark glass walls and wicker-enclosed lighting recreate the setting of a 2000 film by Wong Kar-Wai which hearkens back to Hong Kong in the 60s. Were you expecting Tokyo? And the chef/owner perfected his trade in Chicago. But don't expect the usual parade of California rolls, the creative menu is worth coming for even if your date cancels -- sit at the sushi bar. Try their signature Sweet 16 roll: with eel, spicy tuna, and avocado topped with a bit of chopped strawberries and shrimp roe. Sake is aplenty and ordering a carafe of it makes it a bit more affordable. A decent wine list and a full bar are also at your service. Just a short walk from Thong Lor BTS station.

The Deck

The Deck

  • 36-38 Soi Pratoo Nok Yoong, Maharat Road,
  • Rattanakosin Island
  • tel:66 0 2 221 9158
  • Visit website
  • Bangkok, 10200

Located just a short walk from Wat Pho, this restaurant serves refined Thai food and Italian pastas with outdoor seating that overlooks the Chao Phraya River. Opposite the river is Wat Arun which when lit up at night creates an ambiance for this eatery like no other. The upstairs bar Amorosa enjoys the same view. The hot spices are backed off a bit to accommodate the foreign palate; you might request extra spice if you prefer. There is also indoor seating available but it sacrifices the view. Reservations are highly recommended. If you are just going for the sunset be sure to at least order a drink at the bar. The place is cozy and romantic, so the management frowns on tourists who merely tromp through for the photo opp.

  • Chiang Mai, 50000

Riverside bar and restaurant is a bit of an institution in Chiang Mai, and with its excellent location, candlelit restaurant and live rock music, it is very popular with Thais and Westerners alike. If there is one thing the establishment suffers from it is that it tries a little too hard to be all things to all people. It has a good enough restaurant without being exceptional, though the setting certainly is. The young cover bands bang out popular rock classics and can be very good but don't expect to hear much original or alternative music. Later tin the evening the place gets absolutely jammed so be prepared for service to be a little slow, but the vibe at Riverside is certainly upbeat and infectious. read more about Riverside Bar and Restaurant (The)
