This was a wonderful dining experience, both for the delicious, well presented food, and the beautiful atmosphere. The service was top notch, attentive and we were made to feel very welcome. Would highly recommend and hope to return on my next visit to Bangkok. The Iceberg Crab Salad was a particular favourite.

The restaurant is next door to the Eastin Grand Hotel. It is set in a colonnial house, with lots of atmosphere of old times. The tables are distributed in several rooms, which results in a intimate kind of restaurant. Apart from that, food is excellent, and the service is also outstanding.

Everything in this restaurant is absolutely delicious. Great service, food presentation and flavour is excellent. Atmosphere is very relaxing and you would never know that you are right next to a busy street. The best thing was that they offered a vegetarian menu which is a sign of a proper modern menu. I tried quite a few dishes and was... More

Hotel told us this was a fine dining place very popular in Bangkok. We arrived and it was neat, however it was hot in the restaurant and the atmosphere was lacking. The service was decent and staff friendly, but in the end the meal was average compared to others we have had including in Bangkok. Next time in town I... More

Staff we're amazingly friendly. We arrived just before 10 without booking and they were still more than happy to seat us. Food was great. Be aware that they have a dress code and men have to cover their legs - no shorts. My husband was given trousers to borrow for the night by the restaurant. Also if they say something... More
