80/20 Eighty Twenty
This crowd-pleaser on Charoenkrung is always a good spot to indulge in elevated Thai fare. Chef Andrew Martin’s latest tasting menu (B3,500++) comes with 15 big and small bites, each one overflowing with intense flavors. Nestled in the heart of Bangkok’s growing Talad Noi district, the ever-popular Michelin star restaurant 80/20 underwent a fresh transformation in 2019 but continues to set itself apart as an exploration of the possibilities of Thailand’s cuisine.
The restaurant’s casual layout follows trendy industrial design, with licks of exposed concrete and steel coupled with colorful decals on its back wall. Often this contemporary gastropub style comes with a heightened decibel level but 80/20 manages to maintain its relaxed atmosphere through its seamless and unobtrusive kitchen. Guests can feast with an open view of the culinary process at the counter, or choose seats in the dining area.
