Valentine's dinner on the roof

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

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.

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

I am not a person who likes to write terrible reviews but I actually feel motivated to speak about this restaurant as it was truly awful. We arrived and waited not long for a table upstairs, couldn't see the temple from our seats but no big deal. We ordered food and drinks which took reasonable time to arrive.. My boyfriend... More

Good views and good food. Nice place to take a break, get away from the crowds, relax and re-fuel after the tourist sites.

My group (of about 12 people) selected this place due to the view of Wat Arun. Fair enough, the view is wonderful. However, the rest of the experience was a bit so-so. The food is nice but it;s not authentic Thai really. For real Thai food, visit somewhere else. For Thai food designed to suit Westerners with deep pockets, then... More

This is a great place to kick back between Grand Palace and Reclining Buddha. Their Thai food is exquisite and service impeccable. Down the end of a quiet alley, on the river, you have to look to find it!

Only had drinks here. You pay for the wonderful view of Wat Arun lit up at night across the Chao Phraya river. It's also very close to Wat Po. Expensive by Bangkok standards
