Bangkok restaurants, street food & cookery schools

Im off to Bangkok for 5 nights in a couple of weeks with my husband and we are looking for a mix of fine dining and street food. I've read through the comments on previous posts but am still unsure of where not to miss and I am a bit nervous about the safety of street food but don't want to miss the experience. We are looking for authentic Thai restaurants, street food outlets with a good reputation for not giving you a dodgy stomach and would like somewhere special for our final night. We where going to try Bo.Lan but have seen the mixed reviews. We are also planing to go to a cookery school of which Blue Elephant is the obvious choice unless anyone has had a great experience elsewhere?

London - please help with my list

If they are flying in or out of Heathrow then they could stop at Chiswick and go to La Trompette which has a great lunch menu and is really reasonable for a Michelan stared restaurant.

Their hotel is near Charlotte Street (Goodge St tube) which has loads of great restaurants Roka for Japanese (, Fino for Tapas. is a great website when choosing restaurants and bars.

Borough Market is really busy on a Saturday and not always enjoyable because of this. There is a good Tapas plance called Brindasea on the edge of the market which is very good.

Ryokan with great food in Kinosaki

Brilliant-thank you, they all look really good. I can not wait to try the crab!! The food is the most important factor and we would prefer an outdoor onsen and a traditional setting rather than a modern hotel type Ryokan. Our budget is about 27 000 each. Do you know the name of Nishimuraya's second property?
I am considering waiting until we arrive to choose somewhere which may be a bit risky or waiting until we arrive in Kyoto for seek advice from the our first hotel. I only have a week until we leave!

Ryokan with great food in Kinosaki

I am planning a trip to Tokyo and Kyoto and looking for a traditional Ryokan with outdoor onsen in the Kinosaki area. I have lloked at Nishimuraya which looks amazing but with the UK exchange rate it is out of my price range. Any suggestions for an alternative?
