Bangkok’s food scene never moves at a slow pace. The city is often, if not always, hungry for the latest and greatest in dining. With a slew of new restaurants popping up every month, Bangkok is becoming one of the best culinary landscapes food lovers could ever dream of dwelling in. From a modern French restaurant to a new Chinese haunt, here’s a list of new Bangkok restaurants to wine and dine at this October 2019.

The Athenee Hotel, Bangkok: Kintsugi, The House of Smooth Curry, The Silk Road, The Allium Bangkok

Deliciousness sizzles here at The Athenee Hotel this month. The hotel’s restaurant game just got hotter after the hotel launched four all-new restaurants: Kintsugi, a progressive kaiseki-style Japanese restaurant led by the creative-minded Chef Jeff Ramsey; The House of Smooth Curry, an authentic Thai royal cuisine with scrumptious array of curries; The Silk Road, a Cantonese restaurant with scrumptious Chinese wine-marinated Peking Duck; and The Allium Bangkok, a contemporary French eatery by the former Chef Roxanne Lange of The Reflexions.

Whether you crave for haute-cuisine Thai food, semi-modernised Chinese fare, or a westernised Japanese tasting menu, The Athenee has something to cater to everyone’s palate this October.

Supanniga Charoen Krung

Everything you would possibly want from Thai cuisine, get it here at Supanniga Eating Room Charoen Krung. The restaurant with a menu focusing on regional local cuisine offers a series of stellar dishes available throughout Thailand. With its new branch rooted within an old shophouse in Charoen Krung, discerning foodies now can enjoy traditional Thai fare in a charmingly old-school setting with modern floral wall interiors.
Supanniga Eating Room Charoen Krung, 10-12 Soi Charoen Krung 38, Charoen Krung Road, Bangkok; Open: Mon-Sun, 11:30 am-2:30 pm for lunch and 5:30-10:30 pm.

Victoria by Cocotte

Everything Cocotte has touched – go figure – has been nothing short of successful. Emquatier Food Hall is now touched with 21st-century charm this season after the opening of Victoria by Cocotte, a 21st-century-style brasserie with a down-to-earth and approachable French all-day dining menu. The venue also doles out a selection of breakfast and brunch dishes, as well as sweet confections to make sure your brasserie experience is fully well-rounded.
Victoria by Cocotte, G/F Emquartier, Bangkok, +6692 390 8080; Open: Mon-Sun, 10 am-10 pm.

Phed Mark

Phed Mark is a haven where one of our national dishes, pad ka prao, gets an intense spicy treatment. Led by the famed all-about-food YouTuber, Mark Wiens along with three of his buddies (slash well-known foodies) ITAN, Kamol Chopdeengam and Pongthep Anurat, the basil stir fry-focused eatery will have you tearing up from its pungent sassiness. It doesn’t boast the name Phed Mark (which could translate to ‘very spicy’) for no reason now, does it?
Phed Mark, 928 Sukhumvit Road, Khwaeng Phra Khanong, Bangkok; Open: Mon-Sat, 11 am-5 pm.
