“Good coffee, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Visited on a couple of occasions, lunches and dinners. The food was good, the chicken smelled of herbs and was flavorful. Desserts were "okay." Coffee was great, usually order french press, great selection - a bit pricey. Dog friendly outside, brought out water with ice for my frenchie on a hot day! Customers ranges from farangs, expats, families to the flashy thai hi-so's.

“Go for the coffee, not the service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I stopped by for an afternoon coffee. The coffee was perfect. The staff thought they were Thonglor hi-so. I corrected their thinking and after that, the service was good.

“Great concept, comfortable space and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The team behind Roast has done well. They have a great concept, a deep enough menu and a very comfortable, well designed space.

The food isn't the best you are going to find in Bangkok, but its good. They have a killer duck confit and their clam chowder is pretty spot on. The place is packed at lunch every day and tough to get a table on the weekends.

If you are in the Thonglor area and looking for simple comfort food, this is a great spot.

“High end with a reasonable breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Roast tries hard and sometimes delivers. I have been there for breakfast several times and the service is still a little unpredictable but the food is generally good. As long as you don't have a veggie in your party. They don't get the fact that Parmesan is a no-no no matter how many times you explain.
The ambiance is surprisingly good though, considering part of the restaurant is a deli and it is an ok way to start your Sunday. One of these days I'll go for dinner and sample their extensive wine list.

“Nice decor, good food and beverages.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Went to this restaurant during long weekends, end up to wait about 20 minutes outside in the heat of Bangkok at lunch time. But it was worth it. The restaurant itself is nice and cozy. However, it is quite a bit expensive compare to other same type of restaurants in Bangkok. The table for two is rather small.
