Why: Because of its colonial charm
Value for money: 4/5
Situated in a 127-year-old colonial mansion The House of Sathorn is an unmissable culinary find in the heart of Bangkok. Nested between skyscrapers and modern buildings I could have easily missed this sublime food experience if it wasn’t for my local connoisseur and friend – the Epic Betch.
At first I thought that it was just another Thai restaurant in a nice house but I realized I was wrong from the moment I stepped through the door.
I found myself in an exquisite spaces which were opulently decorated with with eclectic mix of sequins and embroidered patchwork that added a modern twist and rich texture to the venue. If there was an artistic style called Colonial Baroque it would have looked exactly like this.
The House of Sathorn also boasts a very pleasant and relaxing courtyard from where it is possible to enjoy the house in all its beauty while sipping the afternoon tea or indulging in some of the best desserts I have ever tasted. Before I came here I hardly knew that Hong Kong Waffle (400 baht) could taste so delicious but since I tried it I can’t stop thinking about it and can’t get over the fact that I didn’t have to time to go one more time and have another one. At least now I know which will be my first meal next time I am in Bangkok.
The House of Sathorn is next to W Hotel building at Chong Nonsi BTS Station. If you are in the area don’t miss the chance to surrender in this uniquely eclectic dining experience.
