Our favorite location is on busy Sathorn Road but Baan Khanitha now has three off-shoots around Bangkok. It offers authentic Thai in a comfortable, classy atmosphere. For starters, choose the yam som o, a tangy salad with pomelo, shrimps, and chicken. Then graduate to a curry, from spicy red to mellow yellow and green; light salads; or good seafood, prepared as you like it. An indication of the authentic nature of the food here is that most customers are Thai, a rarity for upscale Thai eateries in Bangkok, and these restaurants are always packed.
