My favourite Thailand Foodie Spots

Follow the smell of delicious aromas through this ultimate foodie destination. I’ve focused on Bangkok and Hua Hin, which I visited on a recent trip to Thailand but don’t be limited to just these two cities...explore Thailand and your taste buds lead the way!


Sofitel SO Bangkok
The buffet at Sofitel SO breaks through any previous conceptions you may have of hotel buffets. No longer are you subdued to boring 80s style décor and food that looks like it’s been left out for hours. Sofitel SO is an urban design hotel with edgy interior and a playground for the young and beautiful. The main food attraction here is Red Oven, World Food Market. This features a market-style restaurant with a contemporary twist, allowing you to create your own gastronomic journey through live cooking stations offering a variety of international cuisines, including the signature “Red Oven” stove, extensive wine selection and exquisite desserts. If you can possibly fit in any more after rolling yourself out of the restaurant, the Chocolab, Experimental Melting awaits in the Lower Lobby to tempt you with an open kitchen of chocolate creations.


Cabbages & Condoms
Don’t be put off by the restaurant’s name, it has a fantastic history, beautiful setting and of course delicious food. The restaurant was established by the Population and Community Development Association (PDA), which was founded to promote family planning. The name “Cabbages & Condoms” comes from the founder Mechai Viravaidya’s belief that for any family planning to be successful, birth control should be seen as accepted and as accessible as vegetables in the market. The restaurant itself is as equally quirky with wonderful but interesting choices of décor and sumptuous Thai cuisine creating a fun ambience to enjoy with group of friends. The service is always polite and efficient as you will find with all Thai hospitality.


Supatra River House Restaurant
Positioned on the bank of Chao Phraya River, this two- storey old Thai house has been transformed into a fantastic contemporary restaurant. Perfect for a group gathering or a romantic rendezvous complemented by the authentic Thai cuisine and views across the busy river. This is an ideal stop for lunch during a busy afternoon sightseeing with attractions such as Wat Arun and the Grand Palace nearby.


Hua Hin
Chom Talay
This restaurant has found the perfect balance between rustic beach hut and modern chic with a beautiful open dining area featuring Thai-style wooden decor and contemporary accents. Enjoy fresh ingredients and carefully selected fresh seafood all cooked using traditional Thai methods. The fragrant aromas combined with the soft sea breezes create a serene ambience for the perfect lunch or dinner. But the real draw is the spectacular beachfront location with endless views of its soft white sand, perfect for a post-lunch stroll. 


The Sala Wine Bar & Bistro
Set amongst rolling hillsides, the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard and its onsite restaurant, The Sala Wine Bar & Bistro, is a delight for all your senses.  Before dinner enjoy a brief tour through the vineyard and visit the resident elephants. The restaurant enjoys fantastic views, delectable cuisine and unbeatable service. The vineyard is the home of Monsoon Valley wines and the knowledgeable staff provide generous tastings of the award-winning Shiraz, Colombard and White Shiraz (Rosé).
