Whether you live in Bangkok or are visiting, choices are abundant when it comes to choosing a quality restaurant to eat at, and with Bangkok being so big it may be hard to know where to start. However, the internet is your friend, as there are plenty of review websites that you can use to research restaurants before you go. Below are some of the best ways to search for your favourite cuisine in Bangkok that lets you search from the comfort of home.

Trip Advisor

Trip Advisor has become a go-to source for information on a wide variety of things, including hotels, restaurants, excursions, and tourist attractions, as well as a whole host of other things. You can search for the best Thai restaurant, or whichever cuisine you want, and it will list the best-scored restaurants for you. You can get an indication of the price, the peak times to visit, as well as plenty of reviews from people who have eaten there previously.


Another excellent source for information about restaurants is Google, and if the restaurant has a Google My Business page, it will show all the information that you need to know. You will see the costliness of the location, opening hours, exact location, link to a map, contact details, and reviews left by customers.


Many businesses, including restaurants, have a Facebook page, which allows them to interact with their patrons and potential customers. Just as with Google, you can get all the information that you need such as location, contact details, opening hours, and a menu. You can work out what you want to eat before you get there, and you may also be able to find images of the meal you want to eat if you browse their posts.


Another popular social media network that you can use to find excellent restaurants is Instagram, and many of the best restaurants will tease customers with images of their delicious food. Your search using Instagram may make you hungry as you browse all the delicious foods that are pictured, but it is an excellent way to see the presentation of the food before you decide to dine there.

Travel Websites

As well as Trip Advisor, there are many other travel websites that you can use to create your list and find the best restaurant in Bangkok. Websites such as timeout.com, cntraveler.com, lonelyplanet.com, and hotels.com will all have lists of recommended restaurants to try. You will often get one person’s opinion of the establishment on these websites, but you can always cross-reference a restaurant using some of the other methods above.
