To make traditional Thai style dinner more memorable,
many restaurants in Bangkok not only provide their
guests with the subtle blend of unique tastes and fine
artistic skills of Thai food, but they also feature
authentic Thai dances with classical music. The unique,
classic and delicate movements of performers dressed
exquisitely in traditionally embroidered costumes have
been created and well developed to entertain the spectators
since ancient times.
The traditional Thai dance is totally different from
western entertainments. Its elaborate movements are
rather slow but mesmerizing with lively rhythms and
sound of various kinds of oriental instruments. Many
kinds of dancing are performed during the meal, each
featuring distinctive movements and accompanied by
music with different tempos. Dating back to the past
before it becomes a popular style of theatrical dance,
Thai dance was once performed exclusively in the royal
court and performers must be ladies only.
Sawasdee and Silom Village are among
restaurants providing Thai dinner with classical dance.
