Exquisite food, great service, one impeccable view: The Deck by Arun Residence seems to have it all. The cozy restaurant sits just opposite Wat Arun, or the Temple of the Dawn, which is likely where it received its name. Tucked off a side street near Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha), The Deck is bursting with character. The restaurant’s décor has not changed much since it first opened 11 years ago, as the restaurant hopes to remain a constant, authentic establishment. Right on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, guests of The Deck can enjoy one of its wide array of dishes in a number of different seating areas, as the restaurant consists of four separate floors. The top floor of the restaurant is an entirely different establishment: Amorosa. This cocktail lounge serves cocktails, mocktails, and light snacks.
