Bangkok has a reputation for being busy, and it’s difficult to find a refuge in the city that isn’t constantly bustling with activity. The Living Room, however, turned out to be just what we were looking for in a place that could provide a little solace and some great food.


The Living Room is somewhat upscale, so the prices are a little higher than I was used to paying in Thailand, but the atmosphere and delectable foods definitely made up for it. Best of all, though, was the impressive jazz band that provided smooth tunes while diners enjoyed their meals.


We started dinner with a sampling of the prawn cocktails served with Louis dressing, which were simply delicious. I’d highly recommend them as a starter to your night.


Though The Living Room offers a few Italian dishes to choose from, the traditional Thai fare is where they really shine. I scarfed down the Pla Salmon Yang Takrai, which is a fancy Thai way of saying marinated salmon with lemongrass. It was easily one of the tastiest meals I had during a month-long stay in the country.


My Western upbringing got the better of me when it came to dessert and I ended up ordering the Granny Smith Apple and Raisin Pie, cooked just the way Grandma does. Okay, maybe not just the same but it certainly was a great attempt.


My friend went for the mango and sticky rice, which is really hard to mess up, so that’s certainly a safe bet.


All in all, The Living Room was a fantastic and peaceful place to escape the chaos in Bangkok while enjoying a scrumptious dinner or drink and I’d highly recommend giving it a try if you’re in town.
