The boat moors outside the Mango Tree at Yodpiman River Walk, which is the new mall built in a long, linear strip where the Pak Klong Talat wholesale market stalls used to stand. This development has actually cleaned up what was a scruffy area, and the dealers now work out of booths on the ground floor, with the upper decks housing shops and restaurants.

Mango Tree is a very well-known and respected brand of Thai restaurant here and overseas, and they occupy large and handsome premises; the main deck houses the restaurant, while on the second floor there is a bar, and on the third floor a private room.

We took a table next to the glass screen on the Rajaprasong side of the roof, looking down at the wriggling rows of lights around what any Bangkok taxi driver will tell you is the most congested junction in the city. Both the outdoor and the indoor areas are however cosily lit, and with the restaurant and bars consistently busy there is a convivial atmosphere.
