Bangkok is a bustling metropolitan known for its rich cultural heritage. The city’s vibrancy is reflected in the culinary options of Bangkok’s cuisine. But, if you’re tired of eating only Thai on your trip, it’s worth checking out these stellar Bangkok restaurants that serve food from around the world. Here’s a hot tip: pop in for lunch or weekend specials for equally good quality at more affordable prices.

Craving a different kind of spice while in Bangkok? Head to Charcoal Tandoor Grill & Mixology for a unique North-Western Indian cuisine. Kebabs are a staple here, perfectly complemented with dahl (thick lentil stew) and paneer (fresh cheese, often used in India) of the finest quality. The restaurant also brings the fun back into fine dining with its exciting array of spice-infused cocktails, with ingredients flown in from India. Reservations are highly recommended.

Nestled beside the Chao Phraya River is a Bangkok restaurant like no other.

Enjoy the opportunity to dine at an omakase Japanese restaurant for an affordable price when you visit Sushi Cyu at Central World mall. The interior is enhanced with a combination of wood, glass, and soft lighting. Loose white pebbles neatly line a floor segment in true Japanese minimalist fashion, as if to create a sense of serenity. In such a calming ambience, it is only natural to slip into thoughtful reflection on each dish crafted to perfection by the skilled hands of Sushi Cyu’s chef.
Their omakase set is a steal at B1,680, considering most omakase sets in Bangkok cost around B3,200 and that Sushi Cyu uses ingredients imported directly from Japan thrice weekly. Complete your meal with a sweet ending of homemade creamy charcoal ice-cream.
