When we arrived, the maitre d' was turning away a couple (tourist from... read more

Booking, made from the U.K., was trouble free. Greeting on arrival was pleasant. The drinks order was wrong. We were presented with an amuse bouche. Two of the three sections of the dish had food.

I live in Bangkok and it was not the first time for me here!

The service is very attentive in all the details and the food is always as expected! The two of us took the... More

Everything about this restaurant and food is so good. It is smart decoration but real Thai food and healthy style without too much oil or something.
