New restaurants are constantly opening in Bangkok, though due to fierce competition, few of them survive. A notable exception is Seven Spoons, which has established an enviable reputation in a short time. This gastrobar on the edge of Chinatown serves simple but lovingly prepared, Mediterranean-influenced dishes such as crab ravioli with pink peppercorn cream sauce. With wood-panneled walls, and smart wooden stools and benches for diners, plus efficient service and an innovative menu, you'd expect this place to be very pricey, but in fact most mains are under 300B.
