Love is in the air!
Valentine’s Day is a day much eagerly awaited by all the love birds from all over the world to celebrate their love. Valentine’s Day – commonly known as the day where sweethearts spend time with each other and exchange cutesy gifts or where a secret admirer sends chocolates and flowers. It is also a good excuse to get dolled up and go out for dinner!
Although Valentine’s Day is commonly seen as a day reserved for happy couples in a relationship while being the one day single people would like to avoid, don’t forget that everyone – including singles – can take full advantage of the chocolates on sale and the scrumptious dining promotions catered to this occasion.
While many restaurants throughout Bangkok offer great food for such an occasion, we are focusing on the Sukhumvit Area as usual where we have several recommendations of places we have personally tried.
Medinii Restaurant – Bangkok
An Italian restaurant located on the 35th floor of The Continent Hotel Bangkok, the Medinii offers a luxurious atmosphere with the option of both window-side tables as well as cushy private sofas. Alongside being conveniently near the Asoke BTS station, dining at the Medinii gives you the lavish high dining experience with the backdrop of the Sukhumvit city skyline.
The restaurant usually serves an international buffet breakfast in the morning for hotel guests, an Italian lunch or Sunday brunch in the afternoons, and an option of a la carte dining or a free flow package in the evenings. However, on special occasions such as Valentine’s Day, the Medinii restaurant has prepared a 5-course set dinner at THB 4,999++ per couple with a glass of bubbles each. In addition to this, we have another special valentine promotion for you to enjoy which includes 5 course dinner with a bottle of bubbly and a night stay at our Continent Sky Room or Executive Sky Room at 6969++ THB.

Bangkok Heightz takes traditional Thai street food recipes and elevates them to new heights, combining the best of Thai cuisine and fine dining.
The Thai cuisine here is modern and Asian fusion, found both in the food and the drinks. Dig in to popular Thai food favourites like goong rad prik, normally made with shrimp covered in a sweet and sour sauce made of tamarind, brown sugar, chilies, and Thai herbs, but here served on fine Canadian lobster, boiled exactly for three minutes prior to frying.

Leapfrog Bar & Grill – Bangkok
An alternative choice in Sukhumvit would be the Leapfrog Bar & Grill located on the rooftop of the Galleria Ten Hotel Bangkok. Rather than being near Asoke, the Leapfrog is not far from the Nana BTS station and is nestled within the tranquil Sukhumvit Soi 10 which is only a short walk away from the skytrain station. The hotel is on the left hand side after walking into the soi but you can always call 02 615 0999 to ask for a shuttle bus to pick you up.
The Leapfrog is usually open in the evenings while the hotel’s buffet breakfast is served at the @g Restaurant in the lobby.
