One of the places I enjoy visiting with my children is The Gardens of Dinsor Palace restaurant. It is situated in a renovated two-story teakwood home that was the residence of Princess Ramphai Prapa. It was built in the 1930s and is set in a serene and quiet place in the middle of a busy Sukhumvit residential community. 

My family always enjoys sitting in the tropical garden with the sounds of water fountains and birds chirping in the background. My children relax best when they are with the rabbits and looking at the swans and white peacocks roaming in their respective areas.  The restaurant serves European and American dishes, many of which are loved by my children.

Since being homebound numerous times in this era of COVID-19 I was missing outdoor weekend brunches with my family so with sincere thanks to the chef from the restaurant, I wish to share with you the recipe of one of my children’s favorite dishes- Cheese Sticks. It is a simple but elegant dish that we have made together at home often since the pandemic began in 2020. 

If you are keen to taste other dishes at The Gardens Of Dinsor Palace, the restaurant is a street away from Ekamai BTS Station. Find out more at
