We visited Lord Jim's for Saturday brunch and it was a perfect experience this time. The service was really top-notch and the seafood is the best I've tasted. Thank you Thomas and team for making this a really perfect afternoon. Hope to be back at Mandarin Oriental Bangkok and Lord Jim's soon again. Now I'm a fan!

A must for international seafood lovers. The ingredients are fresh and range to choose from is very wide. If you call in advance, you might be able to get them to make you something not on the menu.

If you like seafood, then this must be paradise for you. As it was for my wife and myself. The food is beautiful, carefully cooked, meticulously seasoned and highly inventive. The service is impeccable. And the location is quite lovely, overlooking the river. It's also amazing value. We enjoyed a first class meal, with wine, for rather less than £200... More

We went here in a group and were surprised that it wasn't very busy. Our group was served promptly and everyone enjoyed their meal. Some had steak, seafood,japanese and it was all tasty. The only problem was that they cleared the plates of everyone whilst one person was still eating and he had to eat alone. This shouldn't happen in... More

Our family went here for my wife's birthday dinner, and we could not have chosen a better restaurant. Everything from the attentive service to the exquisite preparation and presentation of fresh seafood was worthy of a Michelin star or two. We were warmly greeted as we were led to a table with a stunning nighttime view of the Chao Phraya... More

Staying in Silom

Neighbourhood Profile
Silom
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 at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
