Supatra River House as the name suggests was once a residence. Situated near Wat Arun on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, it was once the home of Khunying Supatra Singholaga, a womens' rights advocate. The food is highly regarded though some have said the spices are toned down for the Western palate. Dine indoors or on a terrace with views to the Grand Palace across the water. On weekends the nearby Patarvadi theater hosts classical Thai dance performances and other special performing arts shows. During lunch time the restaurant has cooking demonstrations and an on-site museum is dedicated to the namesake. There is a boat pickup from just about anywhere on the river for about 250 baht per person, but you need to call ahead.
