And, of course, when you're there, the famous stir-fried lotus root should be among your orders.

The dish that's been loved there for years is the red curry paste fried rice.
Enjoyed at: Hamilton’s Steak House
Some days you want to take the Nippon route, other days Chinese. Then there are days when you just crave a really, really good steak. On such days, head straight to Hamilton’s Steak House. Expect the finest of imported meats that pair nicely with the restaurant’s impressive selection of wines. The interiors, reminiscent of New York in the early 90s, give you a bit of an escape from everyday BKK.
