We decided to try this restaurant with it being the no 1 choice in Taling Ngam. I have no idea why it is the no 1 choice in this area. We were staying at a nearby 5* hotel and fancied a change to the hotel restaurants so we booked a table at La Cuisine. We were the only people in the restaurant on a Saturday night, which should have sent alarm bells ringing from the start. However the proprietor, Jerome is very charming and we thought based on the good reviews on here we would be in for an excellent evening.
We were two adults and three children and the bill came to 8000 thai bharts! We steered clear of a bottle of wine which would have added another approx 4000 thai barts (£100) to the bill!! That is more than we have paid to eat in top restaurants in London. This was an open aired basic building in a remote village. The food was extremely average and there was only a few items available on the menu.
The foie gras starter to be fair was good although there was too much in a portion. The main courses were very bland. Jerome had kindly offered to cook a piece of white fish for our 6 year old. It came with one potato and four carrots and we were charged 1200 thai bharts for this dish! That is about £30 UK sterling!!!!
I really don't understand the other positive reviews. We have had so many good meals in Thailand but this definitely wasn't one of them! Please steer clear as this is not value for money.........
