Cool small, wood planked locale jutting out over the Chao Phraya. Perfect for watching the river traffic go by and you should always catch a breeze. I live near Bangkok and pad thai goong (shrimp) is my go-to local dish. I was disappointed. Noodles were...More

Went to this great little bar on the river twice during our stay in Bangkok. Good ambience for drinks in a local bar! Good service and food was ok too. Had reasonable wine too, which was great

The best sundried chili beef in Bangkok. Great place on the river to watch the world go by. The owners are extremely friendly and the food is good

This tiny bar down a side street on the river bank was just a great spot to hang out. Whilst the meals looked great particularly the fish, I mainly snacked. The chicken kebabs were first rate and the fish cakes great. Washed down with a...More

We live in Bangkok at Chatrium Riverside. We enjoy Jack's for the easy access and typical Thai food next to the river. It's nothing fancy but for a beer, or glass of wine and typical Thai food it's a bargain because of the location on...More

Jacks bar has been a must visit for us for a while now but its popularity has grown to an extent that the kitchen were failing to meet demand on the evening we visited. We were seated at a table near the entrance and encouraged...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop

This little place doesn't actually have an English name, we nicknamed it 'Jack's Bar'. It's in a tourist area (next door to Shangri-La Hotel) on the river.
