Exceptional ambience and quality by the river

Being a frequent traveller to Bangkok, I can surely state that "The Wave" is certainly among the very best locations, concerning quality of food, ambience, friendliness and professionalism. I enjoyed various foods on several occasions, Sushi, traditional Thai food and probably one of the best... read more

After having eaten Thai for tourists 3 nights in a row, I invited a group of 16 to The Wave for some real Thai food. The locals were surprised that I found the restaurant (thanks TripAdvisor). They were also impressed. This was a great place for a team dinner. I made reservations but since a group was traveling to Rayong,... More

It was a little tricky for some taxis to find however letting them know it's next to Big C was helpful. The staff at the end were very helpful and booked us a metered taxi to take us... More

Based on my Thai friend’s recommendation, we went to this wonderful riverside restaurant where Bangkok city is on the opposite side of the river. Good Thai cuisine and awesome atmosphere with night scene. I also love the music taste of their band. Here were not many foreigners, but it is worth a visit.

We didn't want to join our christmas evening at the hotel, so we decided for this Thai Restaurant. It was an evening of charming harmony. Sitting close to the river, enjoying the lights, the food and the service. It was a very nice experience for us for celebrating our "Holy Night"!

This is a quite stylish restaurant/cocktail bar on the borders of the Chao Phraya featuring Thai cuisine and cross cooking at moderate prices. Staff are very helpful and accomodating. Most of the patrons are Thai who not only go there for dinner but for a good bit of partying, including soundproof Karaoke rooms. Although the place ist spacious, you should... More
