Based on restaurant recommendations from over 600 top chefs, restaurateurs and food writers, we bring you the Top 10 restaurants in Bangkok in 2023.

Updated on Nov 27, 2023 | World of Mouth team

For anyone who has visited Bangkok, it comes as no surprise that the city is one of the greatest food destinations in the world. Bangkok’s food scene is colorful, vibrant and busy around the clock, from early morning till late at night. In this city food is everywhere: in street food markets and alleys, in upscale roof terraces and in traditional floating markets. The city offers a buffet of food from all the provinces of Thailand, from Asia, from Europe and the rest of the world. In our Bangkok Top 10 restaurants, we have the world famous street credible crab omelette and wok dishes of Raan Jay Fai, the modern Thai dishes of Le Du, the elaborate Chinese influenced fine dining experience at Potong, the mind boggling rock n roll show of Indian chef Gaggan Anand and the cool and stylish fine dining dishes of the German Sûhring brothers. This list shows all the wide spectrum of what dining in Bangkok is today: from high to low, from hot to cool, and from noisy street food to elegant fine dining.

We were very lucky to get a slot at Jay Fai! We recommend taking out a number for the afternoon / evening in the morning. And be patient, you still wait a long time for the table. I could have watched her for hours anyway - simply impressive and an experience. Authentic Thai Street Food awarded by Michelin and listed by The worlds 50 best! Absolutely recommended!!

Recommended by

Wonderful dining experience in heritage building A dinner at Potong takes you through the culinary mind of chef Pam, who has taken over an old 5 story building from her family in Chinatown. A meal here is equally entertaining, exciting and delicious. The duck served as a sharing plate was my highlight of the meal.

Recommended by

The best Thai fine dining by chef Ton. Great views of the temple. For Thai fine dining I would recommend the newest one in town, Nusara. It has the best view of the temple compared to any other restaurants and the food that Chef Ton is serving is very authentic. You can taste the Thai flavors, not diverting in any way, but he presents the food in a modern style.

Recommended by

Casual and exciting. If to put a label on Samlor, a "Thai neo-bistro" would possibly be the best one. Playful, with flavourful dishes, often meant to share among the diners and enjoy with craft beers or natty wines. A must is the Samlor omelette, resembling more a savoury soufflé with a crispy top and oh so good with chili sauce, fried baos with braised mushrooms or pork and Thai style shrimp ceviche and spicy mala noodles.

Recommended by

Thai cuisine, pulled apart, questioned and reimagined. That sums it up pretty well. There’s excitement in the air when you enter SDC. It’s playful, tricky, avant garde, but never to the degree that it becomes a gimmick. Underneath is knowledge, respect for produce, and a healthy dose of curiosity. Chef Sareen dives into his Thai roots but also sprinkles influences from other parts of the world.
