Bangkok fine dining: Issaya Siamese Club

Arrived in Bangkok for one night without  doing any research on where to eat.  The well known Michelin haunts were either booked out or not open on a Monday night.   Googling frantically, we came across this delightful little restaurant:  Issaya Siamese Club.   Getting there was a bit of an adventure, you’re heading into tiny one way lanes in the middle of the city, and it feels a bit… dodgy.  But then you get there, and it’s a gorgeous renovated 1920’s house with a lovely garden with lanterns and seats and inside it’s a techni-colour dining room.

Food wise, it was great!   We went with the chef’s menu, and highlights include:  the very first entree had a prawn fritter which was outstanding, the pork spare rib on top of the hot coals was crispy smoky goodness, and the grilled prawns were fresh and packed a spicy punch.  I would definitely recommend it as it’s not the typical polished restaurant which you could go to in any city and it has great food.

Enjoy the pics!
