Tranquil and secluded, the restaurant at Chakrabongse Villas is impressive. Located in an ornately decorated riverside pavilion sitting on a private dock, it gives you unparalleled access to the hypnotic rhythms of the Chao Praya River and unobstructed views of Wat Arun and other famed tourist attractions dating from the Rattanakosin era.

It also juts sublimely over the city’s Chao Phraya River, and sits lodged with the serenely lush 100-year-old residence of Prince Chakrabongse.

The setting at night, when candles and oil lamps glow along walkways and in alcoves, is magical.
