Conceptually, it comprises three elegant but entirely complementary dining spaces whose access to natural light emphasises the brilliant neo-colonial interior décor.
The main dining area, known as ‘The Bronze Kitchen,’ features state-of-the-art hot and cold buffet counters and kitchens, manned by a multi-national team of chefs.
Adjacent is 'The Valaya Room,' an exclusive area designed in the style of a formal library that’s ideal for private dinner parties, high teas and events.
Benefitting from the exterior greenery that inspired the restaurant’s name is the ‘Secret Garden,’ a delightful outdoor terrace set around a charming fountain, where guests can dine or simply enjoy the street-side buzz.
With hot and cold infusion equipment that ensures every dish reaches the diner in perfect condition, and at least six established interactive live cooking stations, The Rain Tree Cafe’s reputation as one of Bangkok’s most outstanding international restaurants, renowned for its culinary expertise and gourmet buffets, has been well and truly enhanced.
For home-made pastries and cakes, drop by Quick Stop Bakery. For cool and casual drinks, there is the Glaz Bar.
