In Bangkok, the question is not only where to dine but the choice of cuisines. Each part of Thailand has a regional twist to the local food, but all regions are represented in Bangkok.
Issan food, curry, northern sausage, papaya salad, Indian, Japanese, Chinese and international restaurants all vie for the Thai and tourist customer alike.
In Bangkok, competition among restaurants is fierce. That means the good food for the price. And restaurant service in Bangkok is excellent.
Only wine and sea food delicacies tend to be expensive. Of course high society restaurants are expensive world wide.
