First Class Ribs

Went there just for the ribs and the sauce and was not disappointed. I agree with many of the reviewers that the service is so-so, the sides and drinks are average. However the price is right and the ribs are first class. So overall still worth the trip into the side alleys of Sukhumvit

I ate here the other evening and not only were my ribs fatty and dry, the chicken tasted old and dry. The best thing about our meal was the curly fries and the cornbread.....which is sad at a Barbecue restaurant. I would recommend any of the other barbecue places in Bangkok over this one. I was very disappointed. Check out... More

We visited the Central Embassy restaurant. Located on the top floor, it can easily be overlooked. The place was empty. We were seated instantly and given menus. Then came a stand off for 15minutes where the waitress ignored us, even when I looked in her direction to get her attention, she just stared back and didn't move! In the end... More

Nice setting in one of the new top malls in Bangkok. Food was ok , Ribs much better than the steak which was overcooked and lacked seasoning. Portions are generous which makes it good value for money. Service was good and attentive to our requests. Not sure will be going back as there are many better alternatives for the quality... More

I've had the Mango Margarita loving the idea of tasting my favourite drink with mango variant, but I've been quite disappointed of the result.. no mango flavour at all I could only feel the lemon sour and the tequila taste. To eat I've taken the smoked chichen and ribs combo platter.. The chichen was really overcooked, completely dry and difficile... More

My third time at this restaurant and their bbq ribs are still as good as ever, tender and fall of the bone. Tucked away in Sukumvit36 but with parking spaces. Friendly and attentive service. The only thing on a minus side was the 'maccaroni and cheese' which tasted good but I wished that they used the elbow pasta instead of... More

Been going here for many years but the prices have constantly being going up, service going down and food quality just not up to par anymore. Service has been so bad of late that it took us almost 30 minutes just to get some beers, and even then, it wasnt cold. Improvement is definitely needed!!

I had chili and the beef ribs. The ribs were caked with meat. Flavor great, with lots of wood. The BBQ sauce was clearly homemade, and a but tangy. Very good. The chili was sharp and a bit acidic, but filled with meat.I wouldn't recommend it based on the acidic flavor, unless that's what you like. The side of corn... More

Came here for a late lunch on Saturday with a friend. We're two American girls who have been abroad for a few years and we wanted to be reminded a bit of home. Great American Rib Company sounded like it would fit the bill nicely. We thought we'd be in for a real treat as we entered the spacious, airy... More

As is often the case at Central Embassy, our family of three were the only diners in the restaurant. The service was friendly and keen but two mistakes were made with our order. I have to say that the men in our group loved their ribs and curly fries so do go there if this is the food you are... More
