The first time coming to this restaurant Since it's a friend's birthday. The menu is quite diverse. Very tasty food. The staff is also very good. Smile, friendly and friendly atmosphere on the waterfront. Recommend to come in the evening at 6pm. Come to see...the Sun such as the fall. Really like it here I'll be back.More
Quite simply, my favourite restaurant IN THE WORLD. First of all, love the quirky experience of getting there. Because it's located on the river you have to travel through tiny ramshackle side-streets to get there, that a car can't get down. So you have to...go on a motorbike or tuk-tuk that the restaurant provides. The restaurant itself is just lovely, sat over the Chao Phraya with stunning views all around. But most importantly, the food is amazing! River and seafood are specialities, obviously, and everything you get is phenomenally good. My advice...stay away from the otherwise excellent soups and curries which you can get anywhere, and focus on fresh fish and seafood with the many accompanying chilli pastes and sauces. Perfect.More
Every aspects of this restaurant exceeded my expectation from the online reservation, the atmosphere and the food were all top notch.
I booked a table for four through their online chat about 2 months prior to our trip. I asked for a table by the...river we got exactly that. We ordered many dishes and they were all delicious, especially the crispy pork hock - a must try for meat lovers!!
Getting there by Grab was very convenient and took approximately 45 mins when we left Asoke at approx 5:30pm. Heading back took slightly over 30 mins with lighter traffic and a driver who I suspected was under influence which I reported to Grab.
The only thing I wished could be better was the attitude of our server. He seems friendly but came across impatient and somewhat arrogant.
Despite the small mishap, it was an excellent place to spend a few hours with your friends and your family. Highly recommended.More
Had guests in town last week, and spent many activities along the ChaoPhrya River.
Our best Thai meal was our lunch at the hidden gem along the river of The RiverTree Restaurant!
Nothing beats their fried fish with special chili sauce!
Eat with the locals,...at delicious riverside restaurant!
When in Bangkok recently, my partner and I were lucky enough to stay within walking distance from this amazing restaurant run by Freddie & Peter and their team. It's the kind of place that you feel you could 'live' in and be happy for the...rest of your life. Over the nine weeks we were in Bangkok, we visited River Tree up to ten times and we tried so many of their different dishes; everyone of them more than satisfied, they delighted the taste buds. What's more, the staff are great; polite and efficient. We always enjoyed the live music every time we went too. I can not recommend this place highly enough but, make a booking or you might not get in and end up disappointed because I'm not the only one who likes River Tree House!More

Thanks a lot for your very positive review, it was a delight and sheer pleasure to see you regularly showing up in our riverside eatery. All the best in the UK and numerous countries you travel to, xo
Had a wonderful evening at this charming little restaurant- the setting, the food, the service, soft live music. Extremely romantic.
It was a bit of an adventure getting here. We took the Chao Praya Express Ferry to the very last stop in Nonthaburi then flagged...down a local taxi. We showed him a web shot of the restaurant’s home page (in Thai) with its name and address. With the aid of a passerby, we got pointed in the right direction.After 15 minutes, it was clear he was lost, so I called the restaurant and had them speak to the driver. Even then, he struggled and I ended up calling the restaurant two more times. Eventually he deposited us in a parking lot that seemed to be the restaurant’s. Unfortunately, it also served a Buddhist temple, and we wandered through the grounds in the middle of a service, before being rescued (miraculously avoiding precipitating an international incident) and sent back to the parking lot, where a tuk tuk from the restaurant appeared and then drove us down a back alley to the restaurant. Moral: it is very difficult to get here....but well worth it. One final comment about logistics: if you plan to use the ferry (which you should, as it is quite an experience), just remember that the last return ferry to Bangkok leaves at 7pm. If you plan to return by ferry, plan on departing the restaurant around 6:15 at the latest, as you will need the restaurant to call a taxi for you and it will take a few minutes to arrive, then it may take up to 20 minutes to get to the ferry building. We elected to stay on and enjoy the evening then take an easy 25 minute (against the traffic) 360 baht taxi back to central Bangkok.
Okay, now the restaurant. It’s a charming entry, and most of the tables have good views of the river. It’s open air and, in addition to the breeze, there are fans moving the air. It was 90 degrees F when we arrived late on a December afternoon in time for sunset, but the breeze and fans made it feel comfortable. The setting by the river is perfect just before sundown, as the sun sets across the river and the colors are dramatic. As the sun goes down, a female guitarist starts softly crooning ballads.
The menu is extremely long, and unless you are Thai or a real Thai food expert, it’s a bit overwhelming. Although the first temptation is to look for pad Thai and a recognizable curry, resist that thought! We pushed ourselves to try relatively new dishes - softshell crab with an amazing vinegar base sauce, tamarind prawns, fried mushrooms with a fish sauce, and crispy pork with garlic and onion. The food was all excellent - the crabs were outstanding, being very sweet and both crunchy and juicy. Our second favorite were the prawns, although I would have liked more of the sauce. Pork is the perfect accompaniment to shellfish, and this pork was very nice. The mushrooms were fine, but as a second fried dish (with the crab) it was a bit too heavy. All of this plus two Singhas and a watermelon smoothie for THB1,150.
Finally, the service was just wonderful. The owner and one of the waitresses speak English, and they really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and enjoy the meal. We seemed to be the only non-Thais there, so it was fun to get away from the touristy places in Bangkok.
Challenging (but not impossible!) to find, but very much worth it.More
