    Romantic places for dinner

    I would be thankful for any recommendations.

    The ideas we have so far are dinner cruise (which I am not so fond of) or at Vertigo at sundown but there is no preferation for place and style, most important it has to be what women consider a romantic setting which I have no idea of because I could not be less romantic.

    I'd say Zanotti's (northern Italian cuisine, Sala Daeng)- romantic, professionally run And damn fine food. Preceded by sundowner cocktails at the top of the State tower nearby (wouldn't bother eating there though).

    On the Thai side, the Thai restaurant at the Sukhothai should make any woman go all squishy.

    Down by Sirriraj they have a restaurant/performacnce place; very nice location, lovely traditional buildings, very romantic... When my colleagues come in I'll ask them the name.

    The Chippy at the end of Soi Cowboy is romantic.

    My colleagues tell me it's a lovely setting, but overpriced for average food...

    Thai food might set her off.

    Anyone looking for the true taste of Thailand will find it at Benjarong. This elegant restaurant specializes in Royal Thai Cuisine served in intricately designed bone-china crockery from which the restaurant takes its name.

    There is a dress code.

    another one,.

    and my favorite out of all three is this one,..

    I've always enjoyed the Thai restaurant at Face, nice ambience, food is tasty.

    She's just gotta take me for a Vindaloo at Mrs Balbir's to make me melt........

    Maha Naga looks interesting, must give it a go...

    why not? I have, the food is very good.

    a little pricey, but a couple of times a year will not break the bank.

    Agreed, also good.

    Is Eat Me near soi convent still open ? That was good.

    Is that the terrace restaurant overlooking the Chao Phraya? That would be my choice.

    I don't think the dress code at Benjarong is strict. I've been there a few times - no jacket, no tie, just smart casual, and never had a problem.

    I'd also second the suggestion of L'Opera. It's probably my favourite Italian place in Bangkok. Service and food are consistently excellent.

    The Rib Room on top of the Landmark Hotel is great. Super view and lighting not to mention wonderful steaks.

    Ah, I remember the patio dinner well. Except the dinner items. But we drank copious amounts of brandy after while smoking cheroots in a kind remembrance of Somerset Maugham.

    Most of the waiters have been there 15 years plus. Its is so discreet it is amazing. I normally dont give a shit, but it was too much. They do add ++ and the staff get it.

    One problem with looking for a romantic place to take someone is that no matter how good the place is, if its crowded and busy then IMO some of the romantic shine is rubbed off. I'm reminded of the restaurant scene on valentines day when every man and his mate are packed into every eatery like sardines. Charming atmosphere for lurv.
    For that reason you might want to consider getting out of central Bangkok to somewhere with good food, a nice atmosphere but fewer crowds.

    The latter we have been already, that's nice but a bit crowded.
    Pier 92 is at the river too, right?
    How is the atmosphere at "the garden rooms"?

    Zanotti's sounds good I did not like the State Tower bar though. Too crowded and no seating.
