It’s finally time to put your pens down and your black gowns on as graduation season finally rolls around. After three years of hard work, deadlines and awful tutors, it’s time to celebrate, whether it all paid off or not.

But sometimes a few drinks and a bite to eat with the fam doesn’t quite cut it. And after all the time and effort you’ve put in, surely you want to treat yourself to a little bit more than that?

If that’s the case, there is simply no place better to dine out on graduation day than Chaophraya. The fine dining Thai restaurant – renowned for serving vibrant dishes full of flavour and expertise – have released a brand new menu for students graduating this summer. 

Tuck into three courses of your choice, starting with the classic Thai sharing platter. Main courses include a crispy pork belly served spicy hot, a Thai green curry with chicken and veggies, and a delicious prawn pad thai.

And finally, finish off with a rich chocolate mousse or a more traditional coconut milk pudding, all for £35 per person.

Everyone loves a bit of fizz and bubbles when they’re celebrating, but with a cocktail menu as varied as Chaophraya’s it’s hard not to stray from tradition. 

Delicious concoctions of wine and pomegranate liqueur (‘Rubies and Diamonds’) and gin and tequila (the ‘Jin Keaw’) will leave you spoilt for choice.

What better way to celebrate than to try every cocktail on the menu? Just make sure to line your stomach first.

With such elegant oriental decor, you’ll feel like royalty. So why not go the extra mile and book Chaophraya’s private dining area, where you can celebrate your graduation in style with a group of your favourite people in the beautiful sunken seats?

If you’d rather stay with the buzz of the restaurant – and in close proximity to the bar, of course – there’s plenty of seating on the first floor to suit your fancy.

Either way, Chaophraya is the perfect place to celebrate for one last blow out as a student. That’s what loans are for, right?
