This place is a bit of a stunner. Salt, which boasts a handsome glass-and-concrete dining room, has proved very popular with Bangkok’s smart city crowd. It’s easy to see why. The service is friendly and on-the ball, the music a blend of house and 80s hits. But it’s the edible and drinkable things that really light people’s fires. The long menu blends European and Japanese dishes, so along with sushi, they also serve superior pizza – thanks to their wood-burning oven. The Italian sausage option is delish. Other choice dishes include ribeye steak with wasabi and some excellent frog legs. There’s also a superb drinks list. One thing that has caused a few people to gripe is the ugly overspill area for those unlucky enough not to sit in the main dining room; it’s cramped and lacking in ambience, but if you manage to bag a good seat you’ll have an excellent night, this place really has a lot to offer. It’s reasonably-priced too considering the quality of their food and drink offering and the buzzy atmosphere.
