Best Restaurants in Petchburi Road – Delicious Cuisines in an Unlikely Location

Enjoying the distinction of being one of the longest roads in Bangkok, Petchburi Road links the east side of the city with the west from Petchburi Tat Mai to Ratchthewi Road. However, Petchburi Road is known by tourists for a wholly different reason unrelated to the road network: its sheer versatility. The Road is dotted with shopping malls, attractions and options for sightseeing, Bangkok city hotels and eateries catering a variety of cuisines.

Petchburi Road is a splendid place to explore for those seeking an authentic Thai street food experience. Tourists can enjoy a number of Thai delicacies for an economical price from a street vendor or from one of the many budget eateries that can be found along the road. As Petchburi is predominantly filled with such eateries, those who wish to enjoy a gourmet experience, may need to visit one of the hotels in the area such as Atrium Bangkok which offers guests the option of dining at a stylish restaurant or a pub.

While strolling along Petchburi Road, one may occasion upon the famous Iata Chinese Restaurant, open daily at different times, which is well known by the locals for its authentic Chinese cuisine. The Iata Restaurant offers guests a vast menu including Peking Duck, Roasted Goose Feet in Clay Pot, Deep Fried Pigeon in Chinese Wine as well as numerous Chinese desserts. For classic Thai food, make your way to Once Upon a Time, a restaurant set up inside an old wooden house with an atmosphere that one would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the city. For those craving for a Japanese meal, one will not be disappointed with the Kobe Steakhouse which is well known among its loyal diners for its Teppnyaki-style Steak. While focusing greatly on steaks, this restaurant does not neglect other Japanese dishes and also offers diners the option to choose from Sukiyaki, Shabu Shabu, Sashimi and Sushi.

While restaurants maybe difficult to come by down Petchburi Road, one should not be discouraged from enjoying the delectable and delicious finger foods sold along the streets of Bangkok for an authentic Thai experience.
