“Unique decor , warm atmosphere ... a perfect compliment to excellent food”
When I stepped into QUINCE-Eatery and Bar in Sukhumvit , Bangkok, I was completely surprised by what I saw. My first thoughts were, this restaurant could be anywhere in a big Western city, but certainly not here in Asia. The building where the restaurant is in, looks like a big warehouse with very high ceilings.The decor, " Industrial above, combined with French rustic below " gives it it's unique character, yet providing a warm, casual very pleasant ambience for diners created especially by good lighting.The Thais have a wonderful gift of working with lights.This is a place where you would voluntarily not want to rush your meal. At ground level the restaurant is cleverly divided into two sections. Upstairs there are two rooms the Burgundy Room and the Champagne Room for private functions.
Now comes the important part of my review ...Food quality and Price
The cuisine is French/Mediterranean and what the three of us had that evening was very good. Observing the other diners around us, I could tell they too were enjoying their food. My main was roasted organic chicken. I had two large pieces with sauce and some haricot verte which was excellent. I also tasted my husband's cos heart salad which in presentation, and taste is the best I have ever seen or had. His main was a tagliatelle with white truffles which he thoroughly enjoyed. Our friend had roasted pumpkin as his first course followed by a risotto which he had high praise for. With specific regard to the quality and quantity of food served, the prices are extreemly reasonable. If this restaurant was in Singapore I would classify it as " My big Jewel " Those following my reviews will know that I have several "Little Jewels" there.
Appetizers: from BHT150 -250 = SGD 6 - 10 = USD 5-8
Entrees : BHT 350 -550 = SGD14 -22 = USD11-17.50
The most expensive dish was priced at BHT 850 = SGD 33.50 = USD 27
A brief mention about wines. A small area on the ground floor, under the staircase was assigned to a self-contained climate controlled "Cave" with a good selection of Spanish and Italian wines. Co-owner of the restaurant, Sanya Souvanna Phouma was present the evening I was there. He was all over the place, with eyes everywhere to ensure that everything was running well. What more can I say except, do make it a point to have a meal at QUINCE if ever you are in Bangkok. I would be surprised if you were disappointed :)
TIP....Traffic in the evening to Sukhumvit is mostly stop and slow go. If taking a car or taxi, factor in a good 45-50 minutes of travel time. It's easier and faster to use their Mass Transit System, the BTS Skytrain.
