For example, you learn how to make green, or red curry. Back at the school a chef instructs you on how to make 4 or 5 different Thai dishes. After being... More

She went over and beyond what i asked for and had a genuine desire to teach me more. I learned more than 50 thai dishes, all of... More

Set in what was an old Indian department store this restaurant is a gem. Food and service is outstanding in a lovely ambience. Our guide told us to order food 'cooked the Thai way' and it did not disappoint. Booking is essential, a little pricey but worth it.

Staying in Sathorn

Neighborhood Profile
Sathorn
Sathorn is Bangkok’s central business district, but here you’ll find much more than international banks and suited-up office workers. Take a stroll along the small alleys between the skyscrapers and you’ll find yourself among Bangkokians living life at a much slower pace. Feast on fantastic Thai food which you can find in the town-house restaurants, office food courts and sidewalk food stalls spread all over the area, especially around St. Louis Hospital. A visit to Sathorn is not complete without a drink at one of the glitzy sky bars perched atop its skyscrapers.
