We didn't eat here, just sat in the rooftop bar drinking cocktails as the sun set over Wat Arun. A really good place to literally have some sundowners. The uninterrupted view of the temple is just perfect after a busy day hitting the tourist trail in Bangkok. The drinks were very nice, reasonably priced & delivered with a smile. We... More

If you are only after a great view of the waterfront then you've found the spot. Waiter never brought a 2nd glass of wine we ordered and when we asked we were told they ran out. Food was mediocre at best. No reason to return with so many options in this city!

Extremely nice view and atmosphere, go there for a drink in the bar. A pity that the restaurant is so bad, could have been a five star recommendation otherwise. The food is mediocre and the service is a joke. No idea to even mention all mistakes, we ended up just laughing to the whole thing. Some tips to the kitchen... More

The view of the Wat Arun temple at sunset watched from this bar is killer! Prices affordable and easy to access by boat or taxi.

Eating outdoors on the 2nd floor around sunset provides a great view of Wat Arun and of the boat traffic heading up and down the river. The service is good and the food is excellent. We got several dishes to share and there was something for everyone. On the first visit, our driver did a fantastic job getting the car... More

This review is for the Amorosa Restaurant, located on the first floor of the Arun Residence. My boyfriend and I came for an early dinner because we wanted to watch the sun set over Wat Arun. We arrived around 4:45, and ordered Chang beer, prawn salad, pad thai, and green curry. Drinks and appetizers came rather quickly, and we took... More

we booked the restaurant about 1 month ahead of our trip to ensure a table for a nice view (3rd floor). The night view including the golden look Wat Arun temple and the neon river boats made this restaurant unique. But, the meal is what I called the real deal here. We ordered a river king prawn sweet and spicy... More

The roof top bar at Arun Residence is a fabulous place for an evening drink. Spectacular views of Wat Arun and the river, there is plenty to watch. Drinks were more expensive than in other bars (about 200THB), but the views were worth it. Very popular - we got there at about 5:30pm so got good seats at the front,... More

The only thing that really recommends this restaurant is the terrific view of Wat Arun across the river. Otherwise, the food is just so-so, the service very slow, and the prices far higher than elsewhere in this part of Bangkok. You pay for the view.
