Had dinner with a friend at Lord Jim's and I was looking forward to the experience as it had been a long time since my last visit.

The restaurant serves a wide variety of food: fresh sashimi and sushi, a salad bar that includes personalized "som tam" salad freshly prepared, a variety of seafood recipes and great cuts of pork, lamb and beef. Service is good. Nice views of the Chao Praya River.

This is quite famous in TripAdvisor and also from my home town travel book, so I give it a try. However, for this amount I spent, I expected something more. But eventually, this is just a normal international buffet without any impressive dish there, and the variety is not really a lot. For the drink, they serve only hot tea... More

I had an "À la carte" dinner at Lord Jim's and it was a memorable experience. In Mandarin Oriental, everything starts from the moment you enter the hotel.

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.
