“Rude service and ordinary food at extraordinary prices”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Having read trip advisor, we were expecting to have a really good evening of authentic Thai food and hospitality. Not so, the food was bland and the service incredibly rude. In fact, I have never experienced such contempt in a waiter as I did that night. All in all, one of the worst and most expensive nights in Bangkok.

“Freezing and unfriendly”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Can't comment on the food as we did not stay. The welcome was fairly off-hand and, having been sat down, no one came to our table. But the main concern was that the place was freezing cold, positively uncomfortable. The menu looked interesting but we could not bear the cold so cut our losses and left (there is a nice place called the Sidewalk Cafe of Ratchadameon Klang).

“Methawalai Sondeang Restaurant”
Reviewed May 12, 2009

Not sure why this restaurant isnt listed in Trip Advisor, it is excellent. My wife and I ended up here after a morning tour of the city.

Stepping into the restaurant we felt like we were transported in time and space. Whilst it is a Thai restaurant, the decor is more European from the furniture through to the pianist and singer !

Service was send to none. My ability to cope the heat is very visible, and it took less than a minute after we were seated for staff to appear with my own personal air conditioning unit which kept us even cooler than the restaurant already was.

The food was exceptional although we did stick to the basics Fish cakes, Satay skewers, chicken with cashews and a green curry.

We will definitely return to this restaurant and recommend it to others.
