Wat Arun is one of the most notorious temples in all of Thailand. Just this year, they finished a temple renovation and it is now looking more beautiful than ever. After living in Bangkok for year’s and visiting several times, I’ve discovered the best place to enjoy the temple’s glory was during my meal at the Above Riva restaurant. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Riva Arun hotel which you can read about in a separate article. This property offers splendid views of this beautiful temple at all times.

I started the meal off with an old-fashioned which is one of my favorite cocktails. It was quite tasty and after enjoying the drink it was time to move on to the food.

My absolute favorite items from the evening were the wagyu beef with potato, the miso glazed snow fish and the tom kha gai sous vide. These dishes were a fusion flavors but all packed a powerful punch!
