“Small wonder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

It's important to say the place is very very small. Don't come flocking in with a big entourage or you'll leave most of them outside. Even for a couple or triplet the place can be quite dense.

But.. the food here is whole other thing, in a space even narrower than the sitting area the Chef works out carnivore miracles. It's worth a visit!

“Delicious - will be back to try more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We had a great meal at Chef Bar - relaxed atmosphere and very special to be cooked for but a great chef! Food is all fresh home cooked with finest ingredients so everything tasted delicious! We ordered 2 pies - one chicken, vegetable, prosciutto pie with mash and the other a steak and smoked kidney, hand-cut chips, homemade tomato sauce and mushy peas! Seriously good food - will go back to try other things on the menu such as the special of ribs or a burger. Great find for a night where you don't fancy Asian cuisine!

“Great little place to eat, great food and even better staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

My husband and I have just been for a meal here and what can we say...we loved it!!! We were recommended to go here from reviews on trip advisor and on first approach you'd probably walk past it as it's quite small with only a few tables but don't let that put you off as it's well worth a visit. I'll hold my hands up my husband had to nudge me to go in as I wasn't sure about it but I'm very glad he did as the food was fab!! It was real homely cooking and the chef is so lovely and made us feel very welcome. We eat steak and kidney pie with mash and mushy peas and lamb sausage roll with potatoe wedges and both tasted great. The chef even made his own tomato sauce which was lovely!! I'd recommend this place to anyone...both meals a beer and a wine cost us under 600Bht!!

“Food coma! What an a awesome chef!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

From the moment we walked in we were treated like family! A small hidden gem off of Sukhumvit 21, chef bar really is something special. We had the Wagyu beef burger and chicken pie that me and my fiancé shared that was freshly prepared right before us. The homemade tomato sauce and fries were the best I've ever had and not to mention the pasture fed Wagyu beef! The value is excellent and the quality even better! With three two seated tables and about 6 bar stools his restaurant truly is a slice of heaven in a city like Bangkok!
