On a veranda facing the Chao Phraya River, this restaurant's setting practically guarantees a romantic evening. Be sure to reserve an outside table so you can enjoy the breeze. Although the food may not have as many chilies as some would like, the Thai standards are represented on the menu. Good among those are Phuket lobster dishes and curried river prawns. The set menus feature seven or eight Thai favorites and are worth the splurge of 1,200 baht (or more). The live traditional music makes everything taste even better.

I couldn't disagree more from the other poster's comments, we had a wonderful dining experience at one of the tables on the water, my Tiger prawns were excellent, the restaurant is set in the lush gardens, with candlelight, and a DECIDEDLY non-touristy, upscale ambience. I can't imagine someone saying they would prefer Thiptara-which is a modern, rather sterile decor, overly expensive for what you get Thai restaurant in the Peninsula to Salathip's
lovely teak dining pavilion. Highly recommended.
