I was very curious how the Chef Mirco Keller will surprise me in Bangkok with french cuisine after Tim Raue in Berlin (which was always perfect). And I can tell you - he did it! If you are looking for a very good creative french style food and very pleasant atmosphere - Water Library is a place for you! All... More

Finally, a Water Library that's in a good location. I went to the new one in Central Embassy. Even for lunch it was full. The food was great as expected and everything was perfect except one of our mains didn't come until everyone else was done. Prices were not too high. Wise to make a booking.

Beautiful ambiance! Sexy waitresses, best selection of bottled or still water I have ever seen! Food tastes remarkable! The #1 cocktail in Bangkok perhaps the world is called "Love"! It just doesn't get better than that!

The set menu they served was close to perfect. It might be a bit too long for the night but this time around it wasn't as salty as we had previously.

but all that hype is probably about lunch... My dinner date started with cocktails (decent), complimentary amuse-bouche (seared prawn with apple dressing & beetroot-lime sorbet ----- 'interesting'), mains (Chilean seabass & Challans duck ----- rated 3/5) and a cheese platter to finish it off. We had the restaurant all to ourselves, surprising for a Sunday night. The service was attentive.... More

I had lunch, 3 course, start 950+ (some menu you need to pay the additional price) Be sure to make the reservation, when we were there all the tables were gone! And they closed the kitchen around 14.00 , so... More

So I have just returned home from Water Library and what a disappoint. Whilst the food was good we were so poorly let down with the service. At the beginning everything was really really good and then out main courses were cleared and we didn't see a member of staff in half an hour. Once one did come over we... More

They have a set 3 or 4 course lunch with several choices of each: cold appetisers, hot appetisers, mains and desserts. I went for 3 course, very good value at Thb 990++. I had the foie gras terrine which was absolutely divine. Followed by the tenderloin steak(which is supplement charge of Thb 390) and their very special tiramisu. We were... More

The croissant and the onion bread served complimentary was amazing . Later we ordered the mushroom soup and tofu with foie gras which was really good .but the main course chicken dish was raw and not so good but the sea bass was really nice. Overall I enjoyed the food and service.
