We all heart Bangkok, for the Thai food, cheap massage and awesome shopping. We’ve nailed down 5 restaurants to try at Asiatique so that your calories are not wasted.
Another riverfront Thai favourite is Kodang Talay, which specialises in seafood. In keeping with Asqiatique’s warehouse feel the restaurant is large and has an industrial feel and a bit of an echo, so we prefer the tables that fringe the boardwalk and allow you to people watch. This is simple traditional food that is well executed. Dishes include breaded shrimp cakes, a large plate of clams pan fried with holy basil, and a decent phad thai with large prawns. There are also some traditional coconut-based desserts, which make a refreshing end to your meal. Ko Dang Talay is well set up for groups, and tends to get busy between 18:00 and 21:00.

Kacha kacha Japanese Teppanyaki and yakitori
Don’t be surprised when all the staff and cooks at this Japanese restaurant in Asiatique shout at you when you walk in; they are greeting you in the traditional manner, although it can be a little scary. The restaurant is decorated in warm wood, and there is an open kitchen and teppanyaki grill. You can either sit near the grill and get your food cooked in front of you with the occasional flame, or you can order yakitori (barbequed meat and vegetables on a stick) at your table. Although we really enjoyed the unusual vegetables and soya beans on a stick, they are only small, so we recommend ordering a selection with a grilled chicken set and some Japanese sticky rice.
