Traditionally, Thai people have their lunch from uniquely designed food containers known as “pinto”. Catering to the nostalgia, the River Barge Restaurant at Chatrium Hotel Riverside Bangkok has launched exciting “Pinto Set Menus” with cuisine on offer.

Foodies will relish the exciting flavours and tantalising dishes, carefully prepared using the freshest and best seasonal ingredients.

Served in traditional pinto Thai food containers, each set for two persons is a must-try, with eternal Thai favourites such as soft-shell crab and mango sticky rice. The sets start at Bt1,200 net for two persons. Available every day for lunch and dinner, each set also serves the favourite summer time dessert -- mango and sticky rice.

“Thantawan Pinto Set” (vegetarian), priced at Bt1,200 net, includes spicy mixed mushroom salad, green curry with mixed vegetables and basil leaves, stir-fried eggplant with fried bean curd and basil as well as steamed jasmine rice.

The “Leelawadee Pinto Set”, priced at Bt1,400 net, offers crispy soft-shell crab with green mango and chili salad, red curry beef with coconut milk and kaffir lime leaves wok-fried asparagus, mushroom and shrimps, steamed jasmine rice.

Lastly, “Mali Sorn Pinto Set” priced at Bt1,600 serves spicy roasted chicken and lemongrass salad, grilled pork neck in red curry with eggplant and basil, stir fried broccoli, mushroom and deep-fried salmon, steamed jasmine rice.

Along with the tasty new pinto set menus being introduced this month, a vast array of delicious local and international dining can be enjoyed by all at River Barge Restaurant, and there is certainly something to tempt everybody on the eclectic menu. Add in the absolutely perfect location right beside the beautiful Chao Phraya River, and everything is set for a memorable lunch or magical evening with friends or family.
