Master chef David Thompson won accolades for his Thai eatery in London, and his newly opened outpost in Bangkok has been called one of the world's best restaurants. Nahm may be run by a foreigner, but the Thai food here is better than anything else you will find in Bangkok, with all the dishes bursting with flavor and not softened for foreign palates. Standout dishes include the blue swimmer crab with coconut and turmeric curry, frog with chilies and cumin leaves, and
grilled southern mussels. Better yet, you can sample all the best dishes by choosing the set menu for 1,700 baht. There's also an extensive wine list with bottles from around the globe to compliment the fantastic food.
