“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Was searching for a good place to dine with my wifey on our last night in Bangkok and after reviewing, decided to give this place a try. A pretty difficult place to find but thanks to GPS system on my phone, we were able to locate thos place.

First impression was pretty subtle as the restaurant is located within a serviced apartment. but upon entering the restaurant, and seeing italians in the restaurant, we were pretty sure tis a great italian restaurant.

The chef is an italian who came out of the kitchen to check with us regarding our food and this is one gesture which we thought was pretty nice. The breads were freshly baked and the risotto was cooked to perfection and the seafood fresh. The price is acceptable with the kind of food and service provided by the restaurant staff.

Overall a pretty nice place to have a nice romantic dinner.

“Hidden gem.”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I know No. 43 Italian Bistro because I stay at Cape House when in Bangkok. The breakfast buffet is always a great start to the day and the lunchtime buffet is simply amazing and great value. At dinner, there are far fewer diners and this is amazing as people are missing a treat! The chef is a real star and the staff exceptionally good and friendly.

“Great food, don't charge like a wounded bull.”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

I've visited No 43 half a dozen times since moving back into the neighborhood. Chef David, a wonderfully engaging host creates a very welcome atmosphere when he is in attendance, the staff try and maintain this atmosphere when he is traveling.
His food is lovely wholesome authentic fare served in an elegantly appointed hotel lobby restaurant. I've enjoyed his pizzas, Veal, Risotto, Snowfish, and have always been impressed with the quality of the fare, and generous portions.
Highly recommended.
