Impossible to answer. Do you want Thai food, German food, French food, Indian food, Chinese food (in about a score of different styles), Danish food, Japanese food, Korean food? The list is endless and there are superb restaurants for all cuisines.

If you mean Thai food, then do you mean tourist food or real Thai food? The best of the tourist food is, I think, at the Orientalís sala across the river from the hotel. Very nice but not what the Thais eat.

My favourite Thai restaurant, serving real Thai food and specialising in seafood, is down by the river at the end of Tanon Auythata. Very simple, very basic but the one thing I miss having moved from Bangkok to Chiangmai.

Le Normandie at the Oriental was the most amazing dining experience I've ever had.

Biscotti at the Regent is a great value for good Italian.

Cabbages & Condoms is a "must do" on most tourist lists but the food is very fresh, tastes great and is very reasonbly priced.

Sunday Jazz Brunch at the Sukhothai is excellent. Last year they had a guy frying foie gras to order! Live jazz singer with band. Great value at about $28 per person.

If you're there on Thanksgiving, Lord Jim's has a great spread usually including beef filet with bone marrow, freshly made tempura, and homemade ice creams. We spent Thanksgiving '99 and '00 there but this year we'll be in Hong Kong.

Have fun eating!

I like exploring food stalls usually, but we had an excellent meal at Jester's at the Peninsula - lobster tempura to die for! Their breakfast and lunch buffet at Cilantro were also great. We also enjoyed a Thai place called Wan Fah at Tha Ratchawong pier - no English spoken at all, but pointing works quite well. Hope you have a great trip.

My vote would be for Harmonique, Charoen Krung Soi 34 (near the General Post Office) with excellent and imaginative Thai food. A family run restaurant, with all generations of the family represented, it is the type of place one would more expect to find in Italy or France. Several converted shop houses around a courtyard offering al fresco dining - with all the little rooms decorated in different regional antique style, present a very pleasant ambiance.

Service can be a bit haphazard, so you should have plenty of time. Last orders around 9pm.
