We asked for the food spicy and we got it spicy. No complaints there. It was inventive and nicely presented, to a point, but I found there was a lot of repetition in the flavors. What I didn't like was amateurish service and the fairy plain surroundings. The building it was in was nice but the restaurant had more of... More

The set menu at Bo.lan is a great experience in new Thai food. The presentation of the food with explanations pointing out the fresh ingredients is a unique dining experience we enjoyed tremendously. Difficult to find the entrance but well worth the search (close to Sukhumvit). Don't go to the old location still listed in reviews, this is no longer... More

Bo.Lan has always been one of our favorite Bangkok restaurants, a place we especially liked to take guests, so we are sad to say our last two visits have been disappointing, especially the most recent where the nearly 100USD/person for the mini botanical (with two beers) was more than overpriced for the quality and preparation which was at best average...

As locals say: Thai people don't go to expensive Thai places. Now I understand. Espectacular ambience, beautiful place, nice service but some of the traditional dishes were tastier and better looking at the street food sellers. At expensive European prices. Felt ripped off.

If you're a fan of Thai cuisine, and you have some knowledge and experience of truly authentic Thai flavors, then give this high price venue a skip. You can do much better on the street or in any number of quality restaurants all over Bangkok. Thai food is rarely 'elevated' to gourmet levels for good reason. It's best left unaltered... More

Good quality ingredients, rich and clear flavours, and quite nice wine pairings. We had the tasting menu at Bo.Lan, and it was very good value.

I had a lovely dinner a few years ago when this restaurant was in a different location. When I was in Bangkok recently, decided to visit this place again, this time for lunch. The setting of the new spot is not much different from the old one. It's charming with very residential feel. The lunch menu looks appealing and each... More

Went to Bo.Lan for dinner with a companion. We ordered the Bo.Lan balance set menu. I ordered mine with a beer flight matched with the food. The meal started very well, with some Thai snacks (Thai peanuts, rice crispie mix and an edemame style bean). This serving was very generous, and if you grazed for a while, this could almost...

Me and my friend went to Bo.Lan for our last day in Bangkok, actually our initial plan was to dine at Nham however it was fully booked. I must say we had a great experience at Bo.
