From its bustling street life to the memorable cityscape and the famous shrines that dot the area, Bangkok is a city which will likely stay with you long after your holiday is over. But, while enjoying such sights as the Grand Palace and the reclining Buddha at the Wat Pho Temple, you’ll want to make sure you’re fuelled up on some truly delectable culinary delights. Well, why not go one step further and combine those tasty treats with some jaw-dropping views? Bangkok is chock full of top eateries that enjoy spellbinding vistas. And these are just some of the best rooftop restaurants in Bangkok that you might enjoy during your visit to Thailand.
1. Above Eleven
Featuring wooden decking, faux grass, and even some seats with a quirky wheelbarrow-inspired design, Above Eleven is probably the closest you’ll get to a park or garden in the sky. Located 33 and 34 floors above the bustling Bangkok neighbourhood of Soi 11 - from which it gets its name - it naturally enjoys breathtaking views of the city skyline. What’s more, it features a tasty menu of Peruvian and Japanese dishes which have won many a fan among past diners, who were as fulsome of their praise for the “great food” as they were for the “amazing” vista. Live music every night, and the jaw-dropping view have made the venue very popular, so it is advisable to book in advance.
Address: 33rd Floor, Fraser Suites Sukhumvit Sukhumvit Road, Soi 11 Bangkok 10110,
Website: Above Eleven
Opening hours: 6 pm to 2 am
Average price for two: 35 to 59 USD
2. Long Table
Although it’s not technically set on a rooftop, the Long Table’s 25th-floor vantage point nevertheless enjoys fine elevated views of the city and is sure to satisfy diners who crave a vista as dramatic and memorable as their food. Its Thai fusion menu (which includes vegetarian options) and popular cocktails have made Long Table one of the city’s popular watering holes. And it won’t just be the view that is likely to stick in the memory - the 25 meters (82 feet) long table, which is the longest in the country - makes for a quirky and stylish decorative touch. As with the previous entry on the list, there is a dress code for those seeking to dine or drink here though, so best check the do’s and don'ts before setting off.
Address: 48 16 Sukhumvit Road, Khlong Toei Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110,
Website: Long Table
Opening hours: 5 pm to 2 am
Average price for two: 100 USD
3. Belga Rooftop Bar and Brasserie
Those craving something a little different from the city’s admittedly tasty Thai dishes may wish to opt for a visit to the Belga Rooftop Bar and Brasserie, which was the first Belgian eatery to open in Bangkok. What’s more, as with the previous entries, it mixes a fine elevated location and views with a position on the popular and lively Sukhumvit Road. Set 32 floors up in the Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit hotel, the restaurant is open daily from afternoon until the early hours. And diners were suitably impressed, praising the “very relaxing ambience”, “great service” and “amazing food”.

Website: Belga Rooftop Bar and Brasserie
Opening hours: 5.30 pm to 1 am
4. Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant
Set on the 37th floor of the Pullman Bangkok Hotel - amid the vibrant shopping and entertainment district of Bang Rak - the Scarlett Wine Bar and Restaurant enjoys a fine view of the Chao Phraya River and the city. Its menu, which offers French cuisine, has also earned it a glowing reputation among food aficionados, who were full of praise for the “delicious” and “amazing” dishes as well as for the “great atmosphere”. Indeed its self-professed “intimate ambience” and “extensive wine list” were big plus points for many - as was the view, which was such a popular selling point that you’ll likely want to reserve a seat before heading there.
Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant
Address: Pullman Bangkok Hotel G, 37th floor, 188 Silom Road, Bangrak, 10500 Bagkok
Opening hours: 6 pm to 1 am
5. Vertigo TOO
Vertigo by name, vertiginous by nature. The popular Vertigo TOO bar, which offers a mix of western and Asia tapas, towers some 60 floors above the city below - offering a near unparalleled view of the impressive cityscape. The eatery may be an indoor bar with live music, but the cushioned loungers offer fantastic views of the city, while the arched ceiling features lighting to mimic a starry night. And the fusion menu features plenty of tasty options - from pulled port jaffle to Thai fried squid legs. And, if you were wondering where the ‘TOO’ comes from in the name, you may want to head one floor up where you’ll enjoy the full roof terrace dining experience at Vertigo itself.
Address: 21/100 South Sathon Road, Sathon, Bangkok 10120
Website: Vertigo TOO
Opening hours: 6 pm to 10.30 pm (daily for dinner) and 1 pm to 5 pm (weekends for afternoon teas)
Average price for two: 32 USD onwards
Set in the stylish Avani hotel, this popular restaurant and bar enjoys fine views of the river and is one of the highest rated eateries in the city. What’s more, its mix of decor choices all but guarantee a unique dining experience depending on what time of day you visit - with the light and airy atmosphere of the daytime giving way to cosy and rich tones at night. And you’ll certainly get ample opportunity to enjoy both, with dining running almost unbroken from 11 am in the morning to 11.30 pm at night. The menu also provides plenty of choices, from vegan and vegetarian options to charcoal grill dishes and a range of seafood offerings.
Address: AVANI Riverside Bangkok, 257 Charoennakorn, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand
Opening hours: 11 am to 11.30 pm
Average price for two: 40 USD
7. Octave Rooftop Lounge & Bar
Set across not one, or even two, but THREE different floors, Octave provides plenty of vantage spots from which to enjoy the city while tucking into a meal or simply enjoying a cocktail. Indeed, the uppermost floor is a true rooftop terrace (with open-air bar) and offers 360-degree panoramas of the city, while the ‘lower’ floors enjoy equally jaw-dropping vistas. Its menu, meanwhile, features a range of international dishes and grill options to appeal to most tastes. Little wonder then that word-of-mouth is very impressive. Indeed, it is one of the top-rated restaurants in the whole of Bangkok.

Opening hours: 5 pm to 2 am

8. Three Sixty Lounge
Set within the Millennium Hilton, the Three Sixty Lounge is just one of eight different restaurants available to tempt the palate within this extensive site. But it’s a view you’re after, and - living up to its name - the Three Sixty Lounge offers excellent vistas from its vantage point on the 32nd floor. The fusion-style menu offers a mix of crispy bites to share, as well as a range of Italian and Thai style dishes and even the classic beef burger or club sandwich. And what better to enjoy the romantic setting than a little light jazz music for the digestion?
Three Sixty Lounge
Address: Millennium Hilton Bangkok, 123 Charoennakorn Road, Klongsan, Bangkok, 10600.
Website: Three Sixty Lounge
Opening hours: 5 pm to 1 am
Average price for two: 30 - 50 USD
9. Park Society
This award-winning restaurant is home to a chef - Joost Bijster - whose menu features a fusion of cuisine influences from across the globe. This is perhaps best exemplified by the name of the ‘East meets West’ lobster bisque with tom yum - one of several seafood options on the menu. Vegetarians are also well-catered for, with a number of options, from mushroom risotto to mango sticky rice. Little surprise then that the eatery itself - which is based within the So Sofitel hotel - enjoys fine word-of-mouth for its food and service. The “unbeatable” views from its 29th-floor vantage point didn’t exactly go unnoticed either!
Address: 2 North Sathorn Road, Bangrak, Bangkok 10500
Website: Park Society
Opening hours: 6 pm to 10.30 pm
If you crave fine dining alongside the fine view, then Sirocco will likely be worth a visit. The eatery, which claimed to be the highest al fresco restaurant on the planet when it opened, certainly earns its lofty Sirocco moniker (the name coming from a famous high-altitude wind). But its position all the way up on the 63rd floor isn’t the only plus point. Its Mediterranean-influenced dishes have won it numerous awards, and it was even named among the 20 best restaurants by Thailand Tatler in 2018 after scoring perfect marks. What’s more, the Sirocco’s Sky Bar was hailed by the New York Times as the “most stunning rooftop bar you’ll ever see”. Who are we to argue?
Address: 1055/42 Silom Road, Silom, Bangrak, State Tower 63rd Floor, The Dome at Lebua, Bangkok 10500
Opening hours: 6 pm to 1 am, last food orders at 11.30 pm
Average price for two: 50 to 100 USD
Great food and even greater vistas
If you crave a mesmerising rooftop view from which to enjoy some mouthwatering meals then you’ve certainly come to the right place. Bangkok offers a multitude of eateries that will linger long in the memory.
