What’s new in Bangkok dining this November 2022

Got dinner plans this November 2022? Whilst we don’t have a lengthy new restaurants list for you this month, new and seasonal menus are aplenty in Bangkok this November. Here’s what’s new in dining at some of our favourite eateries across town.

As Bangkok’s malls start playing Jingle Bell Rock on repeat, and we have come to accept all the early Christmas decorating, it’s clear that we’re approaching the end of the year and the beginning of the festive season. Whilst November doesn’t see any Christmas menus just yet, many restaurants about town are celebrating the season with new dishes and fresh initiatives. Friends near and far are visiting us from abroad, too, and these include some of the world’s most renowned chefs. Big names are flying in to Bangkok for a night or two to tease our palates just in time for the year-end extravaganza.

From special pop-ups to two-night-only menus, find some of the most interesting dining happenings in Bangkok below. Maybe you’re in the mood for a menu inspired by those crisp European winter nights. Maybe you want to journey to Eastern Thailand from Sukhumvit Soi 11. Or maybe you want to be entirely surprised. Here’s where to find all of this, and more, in our Bangkok dining round-up for November.
