I ate dinner here on December 1, 2013 with my husband. We had cocktails, spring rolls, and sticky tamarind ribs - so delicious! We also had the lamb stir fry, but it was too salty for my taste. For dessert, we had a scoop of coconut/pecan ice cream which was perfect. It's a small place, but we were able to just walk right in and sit down to the only open table. Great little place

It's a pretty small place, but cozy and very good Thai food. Certainly more expensive than eating on the street or typical local joints, but not very pricy either. A perfect place for good authentic Thai food with a nice atmosphere with friends.

Reservation strongly recommended.

The food here is very good and genuine but is vastly over priced when you consider how much these local dishes actually cost when bought elsewhere in Bangkok, such as at food courts and on the street stalls.

The restaurant is very small and you will have to eat / drink at the bar if you have not made a reservation.

The range of cocktails offered is impressive but again at very expensive prices for Bangkok / Thailand.

The atmosphere / ambience is more of an overseas Thai restaurant. The R&B music is cool but only really serves as background music because this small restaurant can get quite noisy. Hardly a place for an intimate / romantic dinner.

If you want a restaurant frequented almost exclusively by foreign tourists and expats in a "safe" environment then eat / drink here but for a more genuine "Thai experience" I would go elsewhere and get genuine good food at much more realistic prices.

Been to several Thai restaurant before. Serve the same type of TH cuisine but the ambience makes the different... I wouldn't know they have such a nice dining place if my local friend didn't brought me here.
Memorable dinner for me

Short cab ride from the Hyatt, this is a lovely little restaurant that serves great food, which is very reasonable priced.

Gather its essential to make reservations, as it's quite small.

Food is designed to share, but good sized portions means you don't need that many. Good inexpensive wine list also.
