Bistro in Riverside, Silom & Lumphini

The creative menu here changes as often as the seasons. Five featured courses cover imaginative appetisers, hearty pasta or risotto dishes, and masterfully executed mains featuring choice meat or seafood paired with a hoppy craft ale or an aromatic syrah. Save room for an ice-cream sandwich while seated at the galley bench overlooking the open kitchen.

Ocken also has a reputation for its sumptuous brunch, served between 10.30am and 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
