Review

Setting

Both the open terrace and enclosed dining room of this smart riverside eatery offer unbroken views of Wat Arun, one of the capital’s most precious and photogenic temples. There is also a rooftop bar perfect for post-prandial cocktails and the obligatory photocall.

Rating : 15/20

Food

A failsafe opener on the well considered Thai-international menu is ahi tartare topped with avocado relish. Marinated in herbs, the finely diced cubes are served alongside fresh lime, sesame wonton crisps and a dash of chilli oil. Another generously portioned starter is satay ruam, char-grilled skewers of chicken, pork and beef. Main courses such as chu chee ruam mitr comprising large river prawns, scallops, grouper fish and mussels drizzled in a rich can’t-get-enough curry sauce with strong notes of kaffir lime, signpost Sala Rattanakosin’s flair for comforting flavours and unfussy presentation. Slow-cooked duck confit is another winner—the truffle fondue and parmesan sauce the perfect foil for the tender meat. Go for white chocolate cheescake for a belt-busting finish or mango and vanilla pana cotta for something lighter.

Rating : 35/40

Wine

The wine selection is broad, affordable and notable for listing Thai wines alongside their Old World equivalents. Fun cocktails, mocktails and an extensive range of spirits are also available.
