On approaching Trader Vic's, you were immediately assailed by the smell of freshly cooked chicken, pork etc. as well as pad thai and indian curries on the outside stations. With our mouths watering and our eyes bigger than saucers at the amazing displays of sea-food and other food, we sat down and immediately selected the fixed price brunch option with... More

We were seated outside on the terrace over looking the river . There was an electric storm overhead but we were undercover so it just added to the romance . Gorgeous food with lots of little extras . My husband had jerk chicken for his main and I had shrimp San Francisco . Both delicious . Bit pricey but worth... More

We had visited quite a number of places with live music in Bangkok over the years, Trader Vic's is definitely one of our top 3 choices. We went there on a Thursday evening, thought that the band might be playing conventional songs which suit hotel clients in general. We were surpised that it palyed a wide range of songs at... More

The restaurant is in the Anantara hotel and there is a large indoor area as well as some outside seating with a river view. The restaurant was quite empty when we dined at 19.30 on a Saturday night. They have live music, which they were preparing for, so maybe it gets livelier later. The other ambient music isn't great though... More
