You don't always need a river view to have a romantic night out, as sometimes just the food itself is amorous enough, like at Le Du.
Chef "Ton" Thitid Tassanakajohn heads up this Thai influenced relaxed fine dining experience, putting his skills honed at New York's Eleven Madison Park to work as he does contemporary takes on Thai classics. The restaurant name is a take on the Thai word " ru du" meaning seasons, and indeed the tasting menus here get a heavy dose of seasonal produce and ingredients, all sourced from local farmers, fishermen, and more. The presentations are exquisite, and as Chef Ton is a professional sommelier as well, needless to say the wine pairings from around the globe are world class. Le Du has received endless awards, ranging from a Michelin star from the Bangkok Michelin Guide to being ranked 4th on the Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list for 2021. Four and Six course tasting menus are offered here, with exotic dishes like squid and ink, pork blood pudding, and even the most humble variety of Thai bananas getting the most creative and delectable treatment. Tasting menus run from 3,000-3,600 baht and are a highlight for any foodie visit to Bangkok.
