Embark on an exclusive 40-seat dinner cruise, Supanniga Cruise, to fully experience a whole new perspective on the majestic Chao Phraya River, along with authentic Thai cuisine from family recipes and homegrown ingredients, as well as exquisite signature drinks and fine champagnes.
The Rise of Supanniga Brand
The first Supanniga restaurant, Krua Supanniga by Khunyai, was introduced in 2012 in Khon Kaen as a part of the the Supanniga Home hotel run by Laoraowirodge family. The restaurant offers its guests an authentic Thai cuisine using home-style recipe from their grandmother, Somsri Chantra, which seamlessly blends Thailand’s Eastern and Northeastern styles of cooking together.
In 2013, Thanaruek Laoraowirodge and his partners have brought his grandma’s recipe to Bangkok with the opening of the first Supanniga Eating Room in Thonglor. They later expanded their empires with the second location in Sathorn in 2015.
After its huge success of the two branches in Bangkok, Supanniga Cruise was introduced, aiming to provide discerning locals and traveling diners an unrivaled river cruise dining experience with Supanniga’s time-honored Thai food and attentive hospitality.
Boutique River Cruise
Accessible and modern while respecting the Thai heritage, this stylishly designed, boutique galley combines traditional furniture pieces such as Thai silk, terracotta, and loom with bold and bright yellow color from the Supanniga flower, echoing the contemporary and fun vibe with a touch of Thainess.
Entirely open-air, the first floor of the galley provides a dining area and a service bar which can accommodate up to 16 patrons. There is also a lounge area where guests can smoke and enjoy the view at the front of the barge. The second level houses a spacious area for up to 24 patrons, which is popular for parties and social events.
Exceptional Cruising Options
Supanniga Cruise offers two exceptional choices each day for a wealth of memories and experiences. Departing from River City at 16:45 is the Evening Cocktail Cruise (Mon-Fri) and the Evening Champagne Cruise (Sat-Sun), serving drinks and snacks for guests who would like to enjoy the river experience as the golden sunrays sets ablaze the sky in the evening.
Meanwhile, the Sunset Dinner Cruise—departing at 18:15—offers a 6-course degustation menu created by Thai Chef Sathaporn Jankamjorn, accompanied by a glass of champagne and drinking water, offering spectacular views of many historical Bangkok tourist attractions along the Chao Phraya River at night.
Thai Food Like Grandma Used to Make
Carefully selected to enhance the cruise experience, the 6-course home-cooked Thai menu from Supanniga Cruise begins with the Mieng Platu Kapi Koh Chang, a delectable amuse bouche of fried Thai mackerel wrapped with chaplu leaves accompanied with shrimp paste sauce from Koh Chang.
The Supanniga appetizers kick off with a traditional Mahor, consisting of minced pork stir-fried with garlic and peanuts served on sliced fresh orange, a perfect combination of sweet and savory, followed by a refreshing touch of the Kratong Tong, a beautiful crispy cup of spicy minced chicken salad flavored with lime juice, chili flakes, fish sauce, and herbs and the Yum Pla Salid Foo Nue Pu, a distinctive salad appetizer of a deep-fried crispy leaf fish—well-drained and flaked—served with spicy green mango dressing and a huge chunk of crab meat.
One of the popular dishes that defines Thai flavor at Supanniga Cruise is the all-time-favorite Tom Yum Goong Yai. This traditional Thai spicy soup is hot, sour, and aromatic with fresh Thai herbs like kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, and galangal, served with a nice and bouncy jumbo prawn.
Sharing “Sam Rub Thai”
For Thais, sharing is caring. The cruise offers the “Sam Rub Thai” featuring 5 mouthwatering Thai dishes placed on the table for guests to share, served with freshly steamed Jasmine rice and Riceberry rice.
The Southern Thai Gaeng Pu Bai Cha Plu features Surat Thani’s colossal crab lumps and crab roe bathed in spicy red curry with cha plu leaves, lending an addictively fiery flavor with an exotic scent of herbs and a mild taste of meat. The Nam Prik Ka Pi is another Thai favorite dish offering at the cruise. A small bowl of chili sauce made with the finest shrimp paste from Koh Chang is well complemented by fried mackerel filet, acacia pennata omelet, Thai eggplant omelet, and fresh local vegetables.
This home-style meal continued with the “Son in Law” Eggs in which medium-boiled eggs are fried until they turned golden brown, served with three-flavor sauce made with sugar, fish sauce, and tamarind, and garnished with fried shallots and chili peppers. Passionately prepared using local ingredients, the Pad Ka Nah Pla Kem Koh Chang, comprising stir-fried Hong Kong kale with salted fish from Koh Chang, brings comfort and wealth with its distinguishing flavors. The Pu Jah, on the other hand, is a simple yet scrumptious dish with a well-mix of crabmeat and pork, seasoned with Thai spices and steamed inside crab shells, and served with spicy Thai ketchup.
Heavenly Thai Dessert Treats
A perfect ending to this wonderful meal arrives with the Mango Sticky Rice. The sweet golden mango is beautifully carved into the shape of a flower, sitting on the sweet sticky rice with coconut milk and roasted beans. This is followed by the traditional Thai sweet and organic tea.
Plus, there is also an additional appetizer menu on offer, including Thai finger food like fried chicken wings, fried Vietnamese sausages, and fried Isan sausages.
Signature Cocktails On Board
This delightful dinner is further enhanced by the Thai-inspired cocktails curated by Vesper Bar, one of the “Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2016” and an exclusive Taittinger champagne Brut from France, enchantingly complete the overall dining experience.
Of all the signature cocktails by Vesper, the Supaniga G&T is strong yet smooth, with a refreshing blend of jasmine-infused Kristall Thai gin and tonic water, exhibiting a sweet scent of jasmine and a citrus twist. It is also garnished with fresh jasmine flowers.
Other highlights include the classic-inspired Bangkok Negroni, an interesting mix of kaffir lime-infused Kristall Thai gin with Bianco Vermouth and Campari and the bubbly Arom-Dee (which means “being in a good mood”), made up of Supanniga special housemade liqueur and rose lemonade topped with champagne.
If delightful food, inspiring cocktails, and spectacular views along the river are your criteria, then look no further than Supanniga Cruise, the dining cruise that will definitely give you the most extraordinary and remarkable river experience—second to none.
