“Fantastic atmosphere, fantastic food, fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We came to this rooftop for a couple of drinks, we were already quite tipsy and very under dressed (shorts and flipflops) despite this the manager was very welcoming, shook our hand invited us to come and take a look around to take in the amazing views, take a few snaps and to have a look at the menu but we couldn't stay with flip flops and shorts on.. undertsandable.
We were so pleased he was so nice even though we looked so out of place we made arrangements to go for dinner the next night, if he had sent us straight away we likely wouldn't have came back.

The food was incredible, everyone thought there's was best! I had a Tuna fillet teriyaki... which iv'e had twice elsewhere and been disappointed in comparison, I work in the restaurant business myself and found the service of the staff second to none.. many places in Thailand could learn a lot from them.

It also has the best men's toilets I have ever seen!!

Dear NeilskyB,

It is extremely kind of you to post such feedback on Trip Advisor, and please accept my grateful thanks for your kind comments...
Again, following guests' demands: we had to implement this "soft" dress code to satisfy everyone.
The shorts for gentlemen are welcomed, not permitted are any kind of open shoes, and sleeveless Tee-shirts for Gents.
I am glad you returned and gave us a chance, even you couldn't stay on your first try; but I think Above Eleven is worth a second chance for a memorable evening in Bangkok.
I am absolutely delighted to learn Above Eleven's team managed to satisfy your rightful expectations at all levels.
We'll all have the pleasure to welcome you back soon!

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Wow!! Spectacular view of the city . Rooftop view on the 32 nd floor. We ordered many starters with drinks and everything was delicious! Comfortable couch seating on second level, also a bit more intimate than bar level . Restrooms very clean, also with glass wall with spectacular view! This place is nice!

Dear Slang22,

Many thanks for your kind appreciation and review of Above Eleven.
Views of Bangkok are simply awesome, the second floor (mezzanine) is, as you mentioned, a bit more intimate and less vibrant than the main 33rd floor below, perfect spot to hold a conversation with your friends or get some privacy.
We will have the pleasure to welcome you back soon.

“Fusion tapas with excellent drinks + view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Lovely fusion tapas style dining. Really excellent presentations. Love the seafood categories. Very good and delisious. Small dishes, so make sure you order several of your favorites if you do Thai style sharing. View is great - without being a very high rise roof top. Lovely seating and decoration. The giant var makes it into a tropical cocktail heaven. Very good drinks, but they takes sometimes too long to make them. Had some issues making the margatita with lime (!) and not put lemon in, and sour enough. My friends old fashioned was fab. Love the sparking wines with this food. I've been 2 times, will come again! Good for couples and friends.

Dear Sissel Henriett... L,

Thank you very much for your review, and rating of Above Eleven.
I am sorry if drinks preparation went too slow, and I will make sure all bartenders can prepare a Margarita as per standards. This is the very basic cocktail which shouldn't be missed at all.
I will be pleased to meet you personally on your next visit, do not hesitate to let me know once you are here.
Best regards

“superb views and ambiance, food overrated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

One obviously goes to this place for the extraordinary location and its superb views. The ambiance, the decoration, the menucard and the service all promise a little more than is delivered. Food turns out to be distinctly average albeit at top prices. Worth our wile, but I wouldn't go again.
