Thailand Tatler's Best Restaurants For Date Night
I like to impress dates with 80/20 for culinary creations like nowhere else. It's like trickster here. You see one thing, but you taste another. Flavours disguised in modern, sometimes avant-garde presentations are often nostalgic if you're Thai or have lived here a long time. It's a dining experience that inevitably triggers conversation and sharing. And, they don't flinch when you ask for vegan.

The Reflexions is a longstanding restaurant for several good reasons that I'd want to share with my date. The food takes me back to my childhood when everything was worth the excitement. But what really has me going back to this place, again and again, is the French pianist.

I'm always a little nervous on first dates and trying to pick the perfect restaurant can make it even worse. That's why I have a go-to: Tenshino at Pullman Bangkok King Power Hotel. The setting here transports you to the 1920s, which somehow puts the edge of modern life off. Share a platter of the sushi of the day—their o-toro will melt in your mouth—as well as some monkfish cheeks with foie gras and truffle cold soba. Finish your night with a luscious yuzu tiramisu and make sure to snap a couple of pictures for Instagram because it will definitely be a night to remember.

France and romance, they go together like oysters and champagne—an undeniably spectacular duo. That’s why, for me, a perfect date night is à la française. Sathorn’s Michelin-starred restaurant J’aime wraps all of France’s je n'ais se quoi up and ties it with a beautiful bow. From their sophisticated cuisine, fine wines and chic decor (an upside-down glass piano hangs from the ceiling), this French gem is where romance goes to thrive.

5/6La Casa Nostra
If you are looking for deep talks and heartfelt conversations with your significant other, La Casa Nostra is the perfect place for dinner. With impressive wine collections and mouth-watering desserts, the restaurant will make your date one to not forget.

For that truly special occasion, what better place to take your significant other than the best? Mezzaluna tops our dining guide this year as well as several other esteemed dining publications for its exceptional taste, service and views atop the grand lebua hotel. What more do you need for a night to remember?
