Rongros Restaurant, Bangkok
Updated: Jan 28
I had the chance to eat during my last trip to Bangkok at Rongros, a Thai restaurant with a good atmosphere that wants to invite everyone to discover the best of Thai food. This restaurant has changed the look of the old 'garage' along the Chao Phraya River. to become a 'Restaurant' that offers deliciousness with a variety of Thai dishes in memory. amidst the cool atmosphere by the water and the amazing views in the background as a witness of romance.
The beautiful scenery along the Chao Phraya River is a distinctive feature of the restaurant. With a very classy decoration style that chooses to use clear glass for their surrounds. This creates an atmosphere like sitting in a small conservatory. and when you look outside, you will see a view of the Phra Prang of Wat Arun. beautiful located on the Chao Phraya River.
As for the interior of the shop, they have chosen a navy blue color. contrast with brown furniture. Some of them are flowers embroidered onto the canvas. some are weaves which is placed with gold-rimmed ornaments, chic designs in contemporary Thai style with a stencilled wooden scene. The painting has an unique Chinese indigo pattern. Especially during the day if it gets light from outside. it will shine through to meet the internal corners perfectly.
When walking up to the second floor you will find an open space that transforms into a rooftop where you can enjoy the beautiful Bangkok view and fully see the way of life along the Chao Phraya River. Come to this zone, just order a cold drink and sit back and enjoy the breeze. bring in the coldness from the river It allows you to feel fully relaxed.
The restaurant delivers the flavour of Thai food. that many people may have tried when they were young. through the skill of family members like grandmothers and grandfathers.
Starting with the ancient snack menu like Singburi Watermelon Dried Fish, which uses only good size dried snakehead fish from Singburi province. Grilled in a charcoal stove until gets fragrant. before the fish Pound and roast until fluffy. Mix with sugar and fried onions. Eating it with diced watermelon goes well together.
Tried as appetizer the vegetable rolls too and I was not disappointed. For main dish, I decided to be conservative and try the Pad Thai which was excellent and made with really good ingredients.
As previously mentioned, the atmosphere on the second floor it's perfect to sit and enjoy the view. Ready to sip a chill drink, the shop has many interesting signature cocktails to serve. Especially the chic menu names that make you have to read it over and over again, such as Blowjito, Ping Pong Show, Golden Flower and Bong Petchakad, also known as Bong Phetchakad, a special cocktail served in a bamboo bong. and choose to use Thai liquor base like Sangsom Mixed with mango and passion fruit juice for a sweet and sour taste. but concentrated with strong Thai liquor as the name suggests.
If you are around the area or you want to be in a great atmosphere, I highly recommend you to visit Rongros.
