The Oriental Bangkok has a reputation for stately elegance and Sala Rim Nam, the hotel's fine dining restaurant, lives up to the expectations. Set on the banks of the Chao Phraya River directly across from the hotel, Sala Rim Nam boasts fine interior design showing Thai silk and etched glass. Starting at 7 p.m. a professional dance troupe puts on their nightly show. The menu is set in the evening and lunch offers a wonderful buffet. The hotel has a free ferry for diners to cross the river to the restaurant.
