Dinner by the river

We have just spent the last 2 nights at The Wave. Lovely, friendly staff, live music, great food and real river location. 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... read 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

The thai kitchen is great, but we have to be careful with our son of 6. He doesn't like spicy. We ordered the spaghetti with prawns for him. That was an execellent choice. I tasted myself and it was gorgious. The sushi we ordered was moderate. Love to see the kingsize chang beer (5 litres??) our neighbours ordered. And love... More

First time for us in "the city of angels" and we were looking for the real taste of thai food. We were surprised and didn't expect such a good value for our orders. The restaurant is close to the famous Chao Praya River and we were sitting close to this spectacular view. Food, service and price are real good. The... More
