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!
