“The view is absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

The bar at the top of State Tower is a must visit, but only for a short while. The view is absolutely fantastic and the steps are beautiful. But the visitors are not allowed to click snaps on the steps. Also, the bar area is ovecrowded and drinks are watered down.

“Must do in Bangkok”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Beautiful view, great drinks, enough said! You don't have to dine, can just go up for a drink at the bar. Get the ferry down the river and then walk along to the State Tower - it was so nice to experience the area rather than go to the State Tower only.

“Good for the view”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

When I have visitors in Bangkok I always bring them to the place for the great view. The architecture is also worth mentioning.
The place is definitely upscale and therefore expensive. I would avoid having dinner there unless you are on an important date and do not mind the money coupled with low quality. You are paying for the scenery not the quality.
The same applies to the bar on the other side of the terrace from the restaurant. Great view, expensive drinks and rather uncomfortable seating.
The tip is to go there with a camera at around 9.00 pm. Enjoy the view and if you are smart enough you may avoid having to order a drink. The catch is that you cannot stay long, staff will spot you.
By the way the staff is everything but nice and polite.
Just enjoy the view.

“Pricey - but great”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

For those who give this place a bad review because it us expensive, well dont go!! You know its a very over priced food and drinks place as you are paying for the view and ambience NOT the quality of the food and drink itself. My recommendation is to have a full dinner elsewhere and come up for some drinks. That way, it wont get too expensive too. And yes, the view and feel and ambience is well worth the very expensive price
