7 Best Restaurants in Sathorn
Sathorn has a good variety of restaurants, ranging from pricey upscale venues to high-quality but affordable destinations. It isn’t hard to find a great restaurant here, so choosing a venue is just a matter of deciding what type of food and atmosphere you would like to have and how much you have to spend.
Vertigo is a great rooftop venue located more than sixty stories above Bangkok at the Banyan Tree. So long as the weather cooperates, the guests here enjoy great food and even better views of the city. You can find international dishes here with a special focus on Asian cuisines. In addition to the food, Vertigo and the Moon Bar next door serve drinks. Cocktails are particular favorites.
If you are in the mood for Italian food, check out the Lido. There is plenty of pasta and pizza to go around and the Lido also serves other traditional dishes. The restaurant is decorated to suit its cuisine, complete with pictures and souvenirs from Italy. It is open from noon to midnight and is located on Soi Sribumphen.
Baan Kanitha is the place to go in Sathorn to sample Thai food from around the country. In addition to a great variety of dishes – especially, of course, seafood – you can also enjoy the romantic atmosphere. Baan Kanitha is housed in an old Thai home and is decorated with a great deal of artwork. It is open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and for dinner from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Opus Wine Bar
Opus Wine Bar is everything a wine lover could want, but those who prefer liquor won’t be at all disappointed, either.

Cigars can be purchased in the adjacent lounge. Opus is open from 6 p.m. to midnight and is located across from the Myanmar Embassy.
