Great food and service
Had a very enjoyable experience at Chaophraya food and service was excellent. Pre-theatre deal was well received.
Booked this deal 10 minutes before we arrived. The restaurant is sumptuous, elegant and immaculate down to the last detail. The service was very attentive if a little slow at times but forgivable as everything else including the food was delightful, the deal of two courses for £15 was fantastic value and will definitely return. The staff outfits are a lovely authentic touch.
Elegant Thai in Glasgow city centre
Set over four floors of The Townhouse on Buchanan Street, Chaophraya is Europe’s largest Thai restaurant. It is also a strong contender to be the continent’s most spectacular Thai – how many other restaurants boast a romantic Buddha balcony where two diners can eat high above the main dining room? As well as the restaurant, Chaophraya has extensive private dining facilities. On the ground floor, the Palm Sugar Lounge is popular for after work tipples, pre-meal drinks or a night out on the town, offering both classic and Thai cocktails. There is also live music at weekends.
Fresh and fragrant Thai
Fragrant, fresh and authentic Thai dishes are the attraction at Chaophraya. As well as classic dishes such as chicken satay, pad Thai, prawn tom yum soup and green chicken curry, the menu also has some interesting fusion dishes like the seared scallops and black pudding served with fresh mango, red peppers, spring onion, chill and palm sugar. The salads, especially the ever popular shredded papaya, have plenty of fans as do the seafood dishes. The stir-fried options include duck in roasted chilli and the crispy pork belly with Thai basil – one of the chef’s signature dishes. Vegetarians are well catered for at Chaophraya, and there is also an extensive gluten free selection on offer.
