In Bangkok, street food might be the top draw for hungry visitors, but in recent years the city’s high-end restaurant scene has expanded dramatically, giving culinary travelers more reasons than ever to visit the Thai capital.
Two Bangkok venues earned spots on the 2019 World’s Best Restaurant list. Meanwhile, Michelin launched its own dining guide to the city in 2017, with the most recent edition awarding stars to 26 Bangkok restaurants, as well as one in Phuket.
Now, there’s a new fine dining experience that takes Bangkok’s food and drink scene to even greater heights.
Open in early July, Mahanakhon Bangkok SkyBar is now Thailand’s highest restaurant and bar. It takes up the 76th and 77th floors of the King Power Mahanakhon skyscraper, which towers over the city at 314 meters (1,030 feet).
Billed as a “modern brasserie” offering both Western and Asian dishes, SkyBar’s menu comes from the skilled hands of American executive chef Joshua Cameron, formerly of New York’s Eleven Madison Park — awarded World’s Best Restaurant in 2017.
