“Worst service in Bangkok”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

We waited 30 minutes sitting on a table with a dirty plate waiting for someone to take our drink orders. We informed a worker that we had been waiting 20 minutes already and nothing happened. We waited another 10 minutes and left the restaurant to go elsewhere. I would not recommend this place due to the service we experienced. I wish it hadn't been so because the atmosphere and food looked really nice,

“Good food, Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This place has an open view of Chaipraya river and actually not far out from CBD area. Without traffics, you can drive from Silom within 30 minutes. The restaurant has 2 sections bar & restaurant. The atmosshpere is lovely at nite. Generally the food tastes good on most menu. Price is not cheap (for local) but not that expensive. If you look for a place to relax and dine with friends, I would recommend this place.

“An interesting experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Made the effort to go to this little out of the way restaurant. Certainly not what I was expecting. Upon arrival the massive carpark was overflowing, dispite this we were met by one of the many people at the door and were promptly seated. The place is enormous. I thought it was a bit like the themed restarants in Australia like Lone Star, except there was no theme. Menu and signage seemed to be pedominately in English yet there appeared to be very few western patrons. Zany decorations included urinal dividers full of coke memorabilia and Kinder Surprise type capsules. Many partons had beer towers, bottles of Johnny Walker and Champagne. Menu was extensive with thai and western offerings, servings were huge, service great.
Could have easily returned the following night.
