Good lunch in traditional setting

My friends wanted to come here and I was a bit hesitant due to the reviews here. I made the reservation via phone and was slightly disturbed when they even asked for the 3 digit code at the back of my credit card. Even more disturbing was that the restaurant was nearly empty during our meal. I... read more

I went there for lunch and ordered the set menu. Staff is very kind and helpful and do speak English. Restaurant is in a renovated thai house. The food was excellent and very nicely prepared but a little overpriced for thai standards

Having tried Bo.Lan first before Nahm, I quite enjoyed the decor and the ability to choose the level of heat of my food (they only serve set courses0. Different from Nahm, the food and ambience was more elevated. Reservations were easily made however, using email they are quite unresponsive and when I called it struggled to change my reservations with... More

I really like the atmosphere of the restaurant. Very good food. and the service was really helpful. I do recommend everyone to get there by taxi or drive there as it would take you sometime to reach the place by walk from BTS station.

First I want to say that I understand the mixed reviews. It is very much about the expectation one had and the comparable to apply. The place is definitely for the "special occasion" dinner, rather than the every day out. Given the price for once, and the character which is more romantic couples type rather than family/business meeting. To start... More

We went there as it has all of the hype, some decent reviews etc and looking for something a bit different than my usual street food experiences, thought we would try this and my hotel booked the table for us and said we were lucky to get in! The setting is nice but on arrival, we were left alone for... More

The restaurant in the old villa is very nice. The staff are attentive and polite. Food is hit and miss. The chef has put too much effort on the presentation and not enough on some of the tastes. A high price in Bangkok standard.

Good interior design with great, if dark lighting. No one seemed to be in charge and no particular welcome. Staff so over attentive that it was disturbing. Did not finish chewing before the plate was whisked away. So much so that we planned between the three of us how and at what speed to eat to ensure we could try... More

An authentic Thai food dinner with different varieties. Great hospitality there The food is a bit spicy but the staff there suggest different ways to make you feel good about the spicy food. Location is convenient.

6000 for a dinner that is not absolutely fantasitic. Will not go back. Service is poor in comparison to the price level. Quality of the dishes is very good and taste authentic, but the whole experience is somewhat dissapointing.
