Ming Lee

Thai in Ko Ratanakosin & Thonburi

Hidden in plain sight across from Wat Phra Kaew is this decades-old shophouse restaurant. The menu spans Western/Chinese dishes (stewed tongue, for example) and Thai standards (such as the impossibly tart and garlicky 'beef spicy salad'). Often closed before 6pm, Ming Lee is best approached as a post-sightseeing lunch option.

There's no English-language sign here; look for the last shophouse before Silpakorn University.
