Restaurants in Silom are a hot topic for any food-lover in Bangkok as fine-dining venues have been regularly popping up in this lively area over the past few years, and the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Many Silom restaurants have renowned chefs plying their trade in the kitchen, inevitably helping them gain international recognition throughout Thailand and the rest of Asia.

    Silom is also well-known for its abundance of delicious street food, mostly catering towards the sea of workers who spill out of the nearby offices at lunchtime and in the evenings. However, for the best of what Silom has to offer in terms of fine Thai and international dining – often in some rather stylish and contemporary settings – look no further than our list of the best restaurants in Silom.


    Le Du

    From their incredible octopus with crab mayo and chorizo to their raw Wagyu beef salad, as well as their melt-in-the-mouth marinated oysters, Le Du boasts a creative, innovative and ever-changing seasonal menu. In fact, le du means 'season' in Thai.

    Le Du defines their lunch menu as ‘European bistro’, but dinner is a whole other concept, which could loosely be described as innovative haute cuisine. The dining space is simple, sleek and comfortable, making way for the food to do all the talking. The prices for their 4- and 7-course meals are quite reasonable, given the quality of the dishes.

    Location: 399/3 Silom 7 Alley, Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Open: Monday–Saturday from 6pm to 10.30pm (closed on Sundays)

    Phone: +66 (0)92 919 9969



    Bunker Restaurant in Bangkok serves refined cuisine, picking dishes from across the culinary traditions of Europe with the addition of some American bravado. Their belief in strong flavors is apparent throughout the menu: salads are served earthy and partially raw, the cured foie gras is especially creamy, while the pasta is rich and filling.

    Set in a cool 3-storey building in Sathorn, Bunker serves immaculate cuisine, but it's also a fashionable, intimate space with impeccable service – certainly among the best high-end restaurants in Bangkok.

    Location: N Sathon Rd, Sathorn, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Eat Me

    Eat Me is a stylish Silom restaurant with a packed house every night, rave reviews from critics across town, and a consistent place in many lists of top Asian restaurants (including our own). Doubling up as an art gallery with new exhibitions every 3 months, the international menu at Eat Me has an emphasis on seafood, including razor clams, mussels and shrimps served up in a variety of imaginative ways. They also do an incredible roasted leg of lamb for sharing and beef tagine if you're in the mood for meat.

    Location: 1 6 Convent Rd, Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 3pm to 1am

    Phone: +66 (0)2 238 0931


    Mezzaluna Bangkok at lebua

    Mezzaluna Bangkok is an exceptional fine-dining restaurant on the 65th floor of Tower Club at lebua. Famed for its set menus that come in 4 or 7 courses only, the 2 Michelin-starred restaurant impresses with a daily menu of world-class haute cuisine prepared by a visionary chef. Chef Ryuki Kawasaki has worked his way around the world with many culinary giants, including Pierre Gagnaire and Joël Robuchon, so it’s fair to say that you can set your expectations high. This is an expensive restaurant, but if you're looking to dazzle someone on a special occasion, Mezzaluna has it all.

    Location: 65th Floor, lebua at State Tower, 1055 Silom Road, Bangrak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    La Table de Tee

    La Table de Tee ticks all the boxes when it comes to fine dining in Bangkok. Their 5-course menu is utterly delicious, well-presented, and doesn’t break the bank. French cuisine is the overwhelming inspiration of most of the dishes, but since head chef Tee was trained in England, you can expect more complex flavors to be incorporated into his ever-changing menu.

    The choice of what to eat at La Table de Tee is flexible and you’ll generally be presented with a range of soups, risottos, meat-based mains, and a couple of exquisite French desserts. Though a little hidden down a small road near the Sala Daeng BTS Skytrain Station, La Table de Tee is packed on most days. Book ahead, especially if you want a table at the weekend.

    Location: 69/5 Saladaeng Road, Silom, Bangrak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Open: Tuesday–Sunday from 6.30pm to 10.30pm (closed on Mondays)

    Scarlett Wine Bar and Restaurant

    Good views and an even better menu of international delights seem to be a winning combination for Scarlett, a critically acclaimed restaurant on the 37th floor of Pullman Hotel Silom. Occupying almost an entire floor of this 5-star hotel, the designers of Scarlett have spared no expense on the décor, with warm wooden flooring, huge windows taking advantage of the view, and a rather swanky central bar with thousands of glasses dangling from above.

    The man behind Scarlett’s menu is 2-Michelin-starred chef Manuel Martinez, so it’s no surprise that the menu is creative and uses some of the world’s finest local and imported ingredients. Expect intriguing dishes like lobster Caesar salad, slow-roast rack of lamb, bone marrow with shallots, and Pacific Ocean snow fish. Scarlett’s comprehensive wine list features over 150 reds and whites from around the world.

    Location: 188 Si Lom, Khwaeng Suriya Wong, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thsailand

    Open: Daily from 5pm to 1am

    Phone: +66 (0)96 860 7990


    Somtum Der

    Somtum Der is one of the cheapest places to eat in Silom, but that doesn’t mean their northeastern Thai favorites won’t leave you wowed. Som tam is the name of the game here – a popular papaya salad bursting full of flavor with an outrageous combination of spice (chilli), sourness (lime juice), sweetness (palm sugar) and a touch of saltiness (fish sauce).

    There are over 15 variations on their menu, including with salted egg, extra shrimps or grated coconut instead of papaya. Order your som tam with khao niow (sticky rice) alongside their range of meaty delights including nam tok moo (spicy pork salad), suea rong hai (barbecued beef with a dip) or gai yang (grilled chicken). While there are hundreds of local restaurants in Bangkok serving up pretty much the same thing, Somtum Der wins extra marks for its lively open kitchen area, trendy 2-storey interior (with air-conditioning), quick service, and central Silom location.

    Location: 5/5 Saladaeng Rd, Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 11am to 2.30pm and 4.30pm to 10:30pm

    Phone: +66 (0)2 632 4499


    Namsaah Bottling Trust

    Set in a bright pink house in Silom, Namsaah Bottling Trust is the creation of Thai celebrity chef Ian Kittichai. Chef Ian is a Thai food expert and entrepreneur who has restaurants in New York and Mumbai. He's also the brain behind Bangkok’s critically acclaimed Issaya Siamese Club in Sathorn.

    The food at Namsaah Bottling Trust is classic Thai with a twist, featuring the likes of pad Thai with foie gras and their interesting phad krapow (fried Thai basil) burger. The restaurant also has an equally innovative range of cocktails and hosts live DJs on the weekends.

    Location: 401 Soi Sirijullassayvok, Silom Soi 7, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 5pm to 1am

    Indigo restaurant on Bangkok’s Convent Road is a long-running French eatery that sticks firmly to tried-and-tested recipes. Classic dishes, a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and efficient service have all contributed to the steady success of this now well-known Silom restaurant.

    The pretty, colonial-style house features a cozy dining area with plenty of wooden touches, while the air-conditioning makes this space a perfect getaway from the oppressive Bangkok heat during the day. At night when the temperatures subside, many prefer to dine al fresco in the romantically lit garden. Recommended dishes include rabbit stew with white wine, pan-fried sea bass, and steak tartare. Don’t forget to slurp up one of their fresh oysters, which are imported twice-weekly.

    Location: 6 Convent Road, Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 11am to 11pm

    Phone: +66 (0)2 235 3268


    Daimasu Izakaya

    For a taste of Tokyo right in the heart of Silom, look no further than Daimasu Izakaya. From the traditional décor and Japanese-speaking waiters, right down to the imported ingredients and booze from The Land of the Rising Sun, few Japanese restaurants in Bangkok rival Daimasu’s authenticity.

    The concept is modern Japanese barbeque, which means you’re sat down at a table with your very own grill and cooking appliances. On the menu is a serious choice of meat, seafood and vegetables. Overall, Daimasu Izakaya is a relaxed and fun dining experience, even more so if you explore their comprehensive range of sakes.

    Location: 9/3 Soi Than Tawan, Suriya Wong, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 5.30pm to 1am (closes at midnight on Sundays)
