Expensive but nice restaurant with a river view

French cuisine with an inspiring view for romance of the Chao Phraya river. A bit expensive, inside the Mandarin Oriental hotel.

truly a good service with variety of french culinary experts. the food is excellent with a superb view of Bangkok river front. Lunch menu is more affordable with limited choices but good enough to explore what the restaurant can offers. Truly tantalizing experience.

This restaurant is perfect for special occasions or for people that love luxury. The view over the river is beautiful and this only improve the culinary experience. The food presentation is modern with well balanced dishes.Service is exceptional, however expected for the price range. Le Normandie isn't for everyone pockets.

To start this is an amazing place with a beautiful view on the river. We go set menus which is absolutely beautiful. Duck and veal are probably the best I had. Highly recommend for special occasion.
