Le Normandie

This cosy, comfortable restaurant provides what has to be the best French food in Bangkok, if not in the region.

Rang Mahal
Price: B750. Wine: B1,200

The Rang Mahal is located on the rooftop of the Rembrandt Hotel (see Hotels), overlooking the city, and it serves up gourmet Indian food. The restaurant is sumptuously decorated with Indian wall hangings and plush colours. Indian music plays inconspicuously in the background. Food here is great, and a particularly fine dish is murgh makhanwala, chicken simmered in creamy fenugreek-flavoured tomato gravy. Sunday brunch is very popular for B510 per person.
