I hadn't appreciated that the restaurant is essentially the ground floor of someone's house and that there's no menu. These people really know what they're doing. The setting is quietly elegant and peaceful, but not dressy. The service is friendly without being intrusive. A wasabi-coated nibble went the wrong way down my other half's throat, reducing him to a coughing... More

We visited on a Thursday night after booking online a few weeks in advance. From the moment they welcomed us into their home we were made to feel so special. The food was the best Thai food we've had outside of Thailand. So many different flavours and every course cooked to perfection. The wine list was excellent and completed the... More

This was definitely one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had, especially when you consider the price we paid for it. The food was so tasteful, spicey at times, but never over the top, the setting was very pleasant and the host, Mr. Sombat did an excellent job. My girlfriend knows the owner, but I noticed that he was... More

Very, very good food served at Sombat. Please note that they only take private reservations, so you book the whole place for yourself, I believe they take reservations from 2 to 12 persons. Very beautiful setting, nice people, good service and delicious food. One of the best!

You come here to experience the utmost superb service, and taste the food that looks simply honest but is actually an outright delicious assault on all of your senses. The atmosphere breathes a kind of serenity which is truly mind-shattering, and is actually a welcoming change of pace to be entirely honest. My only point of criticism is that neither... More

Visited with my new wife aspart of our 'mini-moon'. What a special place. It's essentially a converted home with comfortable surroundings in which delicious food is produced. The set menu was very reasonably priced at 45 euros each and consisted of multiple courses of delicious Thai food. It is perhaps the best food I have ever eaten. You must try... More

what an amazing experience! not just for the awesome kitchen, but also for the concept itself! I had read many reviews of this private dining experience on many websites. I wasn't sure if this would be my cup of tea. I came there on a pretty cold night and then was strongly impressed by the decoration - luxurious but so... More
