Chaophraya’s à la carte menu and traditional Thai banquet menus showcase this
excitement and passion for food.

Other firm favourites include braised lamb shank with potato in a rich turmeric curry, served with grilled pumpkin, and Weeping Tiger, which comprises sliced sirloin steak with a chilli dip and black pepper sauce.

It’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into the wine list too, with unusual wines designed to perfectly complement spicy food.
