Taling Ping is somewhere I always take my guests from out-of-town for a relaxing dinner combined with some shopping. It serves traditional Thai cuisine with a good ambiance and good service. Make sure you get there early for the seats fill up quite quickly. Their food is reliable and the taste is consistent no matter where or when you go.
There are a few favorites of mine at the restaurant. I especially like
the basic chicken wrapped in pandan leaves. It’s something I’ve had since I was little, it’s not spicy and it’s delicious. Their curries are equally tasty. They of course have the Tom Yum, Kaeng Som as well as red curry with mushrooms. To have a balance meal, they also have an assortment of stir fried vegetables which all taste good. Hmm..thinking of it makes my mouth water.
Their menu comes with pictures so if you are not familiar with the names of Thai dishes, the pictures are a great help. 😛 The prices are also quite reasonable ranging from 150-250 per dish. Service is good and seats comfortable (which enables you to have a good long dinner.)
The original restaurant is on Soi Pun, Silom Road but there are also two other locations which are in Siam Paragon and Central World Shopping.
At Paragon it is on the Ground floor towards the North Side and at Central World it is on the third floor.
Okay my stomach is growling now so I’d better go. Remember, if you have out of town guests, Taling Ping is one option for Thai food which is especially useful when you find yourself taking them shopping 🙂 Enjoy!
