We started with banana flower fritter app with prawns. Very nice, really like the dipping sauce. Veg curry had very nice flavor. Smoked duck larb was also a good dish. As noted, perfect service. Upstairs tables cooler and quieter.

Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor
and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and
well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in
hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in
one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared
to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While
great for a night out, the area is nothing short of
interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix

Yes, I would recommend reserving a table -- it was pretty busy in the evening when I went there, plus the restaurant is not super large.
