Families and groups of friends congregate at this restaurant about halfway between Dusit and Ari to feast on Thai classics like spicy crispy fried morning glory with mango salad and fish cakes, under trees dripping with ferns. Ordering can be a bit overwhelming; there are scores of dishes on offer. The attentive staff is always nearby, ready when you are.
Bring a Thai friend to help you choose, or just pick what sounds best. They have a vegetarian page, too. For dessert there’s homemade ice cream: lychee, passion fruit, coconut with dried fruit, but we’ve never been able to consume another bite after the parade of savory dishes.
The restaurant is across the street from Samsen train station, and there are model trains set up in some of the dining rooms. Outside is their jungle-like garden, too, which is cool and relaxing but the bugs will bite. Rosabieng has another location in Sukhumvit that is popular with foreigners.
