The satay was quite tasteless and a touch undercooked. We then had seabass in tamarind sauce which was better then the satay but nothing special. We found... More

Good food in great atmosphere, but too expensive for what you get. There are better price/quality restaurants in Bangkok.

Went for my birthday meal. Lovely food, nice atmosphere. Didn't have any full bottles of champagne (errrr wot?) so ended up having two 35cl bottles instead (didn't even know they existed - lol!). Nice surprise birthday cake to finish off our evening :o)
