    If you want grand class "European style" luxury dining then consider Le Normandie in The Oriental Bangkok or Gaddi's at Peninsula Hong Kong and many other more contemporary choices. However, the best food will be found in hawker stalls and holes in the walls where the locals eat.

    Delicious Bangkok street foods brought back to hotel room make great meal ... every day. Hotel staff more than happy to furnish utensils and plates. ;)

    The grilled river prawns pictured above were around $12 per pound (THB 850 per KG) were properly cooked and sweet & delicious.

  10. Luxury Dining is generally at high end restaurants. When I say luxury I mean high end venues for a special occasion for instance like a date , business meeting.

    Ok fair enough ... although I've been through the other cities mentioned, I can only attest to Bangkok's offerings. Luxury dining is everywhere in Bangkok from hotels based restaurants (like Sa Bua By Kinkin at Siam Kempinski Hotel, Nahm at the Metropolitan, Le Normandie at the Mandarin Oriental, New York Steakhouse at the JW Marriott, etc.), to independent restaurants (like the progressive Indian Gaggan which is named best restaurant in Asia, Bo.Lan, Eat Me, Issaya Siamese Club, etc.), and to even megamall based eateries (Somboon Seafood, L’Espace Restaurant, Harrods Tea Room, etc.). I have dined at most mentioned above and some more (rooftop dining I did not mention) all offering scrumptious food and excellent service.

    Pointless, rude and off-topic posts removed. I don't usually do that, but I had a few reports from this thread alone.

    Many thanks to @Kalboz for being helpful and sticking to the topic.
