Impossible to get into on the weekends, Indigo is truly one of the best French restaurants in Bangkok. Located in a quiet alley, this beautiful restaurant is sure to get your tastebuds dancing.

L’Atelier De Joel

At L’Atelier de Joel, Chef Robuchon has created a highly interactive atmosphere between the chefs and his guests, allowing chefs to better craft their food to the likes and tastes of their customers. The atmosphere is incredibly relaxing and enjoyable as diners are seated around the open kitchen watching chefs experiment and create great gastronomic masterpieces. Sit back and let your chef do all the thinking with one of their exquisite tasting menus or go à la carte to go down the safer route. Either way, guests will not be disappointed.

Step into the cozy ambiance at La Table de Tee and experience a delicious French and Thai fusion. The restaurant is quite small, which creates a private dining atmosphere. The food is spectacular and the risotto comes highly recommended, though they change their menus weekly so be prepared to be pleasantly surprised. Expect grand dishes that are beautifully presented using only local ingredients to sculpt the creative French cuisine. The service is warm, friendly and always happy to help.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
