Top Restaurants in Bangkok
Posted by Stephen Whitfield
Expats and travellers in Thailand rave about Bangkok's street food, but dining out in a city as awesome as Bangkok is also a great way to explore the diverse Thai culture and flavours. Though a simple but delicious meal of Pad Thai can cost as little as £1 from a food vendor at a night bazaar, eating out in the city is an experience in itself. For expats craving a taste of home in Bangkok, finding a local restaurant that serves familiar, comforting food is a top priority.
