Thiptara Thai Restaurant - Bangkok, Thailand | Restaurant Review

Excellent Thai Dining at the Peninsula Hotel


Restaurant Category : Thai

Thiptara Thai Restaurant - Bangkok, Thailand: Unlike overpriced hotel restaurants that serve mediocre local dishes far stripped off from their local flavor and essence, Thiptara Thai Restaurant at the Peninsula Hotel in Bangkok serves home-style Thai food in an upscale ambiance, perfectly combing warmth and class. Located right on the Chao Phraya River, Thiptara completes the experience with its exquisite design setting at the foot of a magnificent banyan tree and includes canals, bridges and tropical foliage. The interiors are authentically Thai using rustic wood, traditional ornaments and artifacts.

While the dishes are supposed to be home-style and a staple in, or at least familiar to, the average Thai household, the presentation and preparation of the food are undoubtedly five-star. My favorite dish was the Papaya salad with coconut rice and deep fried sliced beef. It was very spicy but mouth-wateringly delicious. We also tried the spicy prawn soup, which I thought was over-seasoned and a bit too overwhelming for my taste. My dining partner also had prawns in a creamy-curry sauce, again spicy, but refreshing, balanced and scrumptious.

As you would expect from the Peninsula, service was legendary—warm, friendly, and professional all throughout dinner. Thiptara Thai Restaurant was definitely a happy Thai dining experience for me. Take note that they are open only for dinner from 6:30 until 10:30 p.m., so best to make reservations beforehand. Bombastic!
