Highly recommended by colleagues, however I think the taste was just okay for me, it was overrated to me. The food portion was relatively small, price was consider slightly high too. I can easily get large amount of tasty street food with such price.

Visited Central world branch for dinner. Everything is good! The fried chicken wings are really nice! Spent about 700+ baht for four adults with drinks. Reasonable price and would recommend it to everyone.
