Restaurant with a magnificent river view

This restaurant, in fact the whole establishment (containing lodging, restaurant and a roof top bar) is a hidden gem. It is hidden near the royal palace on the water front. It was suggested to my party of 6 that we should arrive shortly before sunset to enjoy a drink at their roof top bar before... read more

When I order a fried rice with beef massaman curry, I expect a fried rice and a curry right? Not a massaman beef curry fried rice (beef inside the fried rice and you should see how much of it! About 5 grams! Not joking, it didn't even fill up a spoon!) and we asked for a papaya salad with no... More

Fabulous views, beers and kitsch cocktails. But everyone has the same idea so get there early for a good seat. Very chilled atmosphere.

We enjoyed a lovely lunch on the deck of Arun Residence one weekend day. The view is certainly worth it, with the Wat Arun and the river traffic providing a great distraction. Our party ordered four different entrees and all were very good. I personally enjoyed the pad thai, one of the best I have ever had.

We joined friends for dinner at Arun Residence last week. The food was so delicious and the view across the river to Wat Arun was exotic and a wonderful way to be introduced to the beauty of Bangkok. Being on the River is a intriguing. A bit difficult to locate but worth the effort.

The Deck of the Arun Residence is highly rated because of the view. And that is the only reason to go. The food is below average. The service is slow and often you have to signal them. The place are part of some very old dock buildings. Enjoy the view at sunset and once the temple is illuminated.

Beautiful setting, with candlelight, with fine music and the sounds of chanting across the river. Fresh and colourful food presentation, and helpful waiters.

Dying of hunger, blisters on our feet, I remembered this restaurant from my guide book, so we headed a little further down the river and we were not disappointed!!! What a darling little deck right on the water and some of the best food we ate in Thailand!!! We SO enjoyed our lunch break here, the B&B also looked lovely... More
