If you ask trendy Bangkokians, they will say this place is not as pop­u­lar as it once was – and it seemed true the night we vis­ited. We still had an en­joy­able evening though with some de­lec­ta­ble Thai dishes, while shar­ing the 80-foot-long ta­ble with other din­ers. There are booths too for those who pre­fer pri­vacy. Sit by the win­dows and you can en­joy a great view of Ben­jakitti Park with the city’s largest lake, and Queen Sirikit Na­tional Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

The food is mod­ern Thai – tra­di­tional in­gre­di­ents but mod­ern Western pre­sen­ta­tion. Dishes worth try­ing in­clude the very re­fresh­ing tuna and oc­to­pus capric­cio with se­same vinai­grette, roasted rice and chick­pea salsa (THB1,500/$46); com­plexly fla­vored Ja­panese sea scal­lops with dried scal­lops, broc­coli, black pep­per sauce and crispy gar­lic (THB990/$31); and hearty fried sea bass with green mango salad and sweet tamarind chili sauce (THB700/$22). Af­ter din­ner, head out to the pool­side ter­race for a re­lax­ing drink and some gen­tle evening breezes (the pool be­longs to the ser­viced apart­ments that are housed in the same build­ing). Open daily 5:00 PM – 2:00 AM, din­ner is served 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM, snack menu un­til 1:30 AM; 25/F, 48 Col­umn Tower, Sukhumvit Soi 16; tel +66 2 302 2557-9; longtablebangkok.com
