Description: A restaurant as an ideal, is an open place. Open for new impressions, great food and beautiful wines...good friends, smiles and laugher accompanying a meal. At Water Library Chamchuri we want our guests to experience all that by offering fine cuisine and attentive service, without any stiffness and formality, but in style and with class. In the heart of Bangkok's Business district, next to the famous Chulalongkorn University, Water Library is the perfect location for your business lunch or a dinner with friends. Led by German Chef Mirco Keller the kitchen offers a set lunch, and a la carte as well as tasting menu for dinner on highest level of contemporary fine dining. General Manager Oliver Kramny ensure a perfect and yet personal service, and a wine list with over 370 labels, mostly offered at retail prices, will make your dining experience remarkable.

“Never disappoints”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Certainly one of the top restaurants in Bangkok. The German chef Mirco Keller knows how to please. Small, utterly delicious, dishes. Among others, I would recommend his pigeon.
Wine list is extensive and service does not get better.
Enjoyed a wine dinner there last week, which was great, as usual. I would, however, recommend to drop the German raspberry liquor in the Champagne for next time, as it really kills the good Champagne taste and starting a meal with a sweet sensation is not the best thing. We also wondered why a croissant was served at a welcome snack. Anyway, did not disturb the usual impression of a perfect meal. Just as an end remark: as for the Pouilly Fuisse, which was nice indeed, I maintain my point that this is certainly not a Cote de Beaune, but a Macon wine.

“Probably the best in the city”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

What I like most was its incredible list of wine list. You name it and they have it. The food is great too. The restaurant is truly international in every sense of the world, and the service is truly world class. Don’t miss the sea food.

“Delicious”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I went there with a group of friends for dinner. The service is really good - the waiter who came for our orders could explain menu very well. The taste of food is really delicious from the appetizer to the main courses and the desserts. Sea bass here is the best one I've ever tried. Lamb dish is also amazing - it's tender and juicy - and came in large beautiful racks. The only thing I don't like is bread served with truffle butter. The butter is nice but the bread needs some improvements.

“Delightful”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had the signature menu. It was outstanding. The courses beautifull to behold and amazing to taste. It felt like we were floating in a cloud. The service was outstanding the ambiance was wonderful. The restaurant is beautifully laid out and the entire evening was totally enjoyable. We were spoilt from the start of the evening to the very end with truly delightful food and wine.
This is one extraordinary restaurant.
