“Best Find in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

My partner and I were in Bangkok over the weekend after visiting there several times over the last year or so. We were looking for a restaurant closeby our hotel, so we took a chance on this little wine bar hidden on a totally unassuming Bangkok alleyway. It turned out to be one of the best experiences we've had in the city.

Lots of upscale restaurants in Bangkok tend to fill up with tourists and travellers passing through the area. But as soon as we entered Vintage, it felt like the place was full of regulars and locals. The manager made it a point to make it to all the tables at the restaurant to greet her guests and chat with them for a little bit. She made the restaurant feel like a little community, which I really enjoyed.

The waitstaff was also spectacular, and very knowledgeable about their wine and food menu. Like the manager, they were very interested in and attentive to their guests. The wine menu was clearly carefully curated: thanks to our waiter's advice, we ended up with a great Argentinian malbec that was worth the few extra bucks we spent on it (about $40 USD). When I asked our server's advice on which dish to get, he didn't simply recommend one over the other, he told me why (the dish he recommended was handmade with squid ink, and tasted richer and fresher than the other dish I was choosing from, which included pre-made squid ink pasta). I was particularly impressed by his suggestion, because his recommendation was a couple of dollars cheaper than the other dish I was thinking of: I appreciate that he didn't simply want to upsell his guests. And sure enough, the dish was Our meals were roughly $12-17 USD, which was a total bargain, given the quality of food. I could easily have paid $20+ for the same dish and wouldn't have regretted it a bit.

At the end of the meal, as we were finishing our bottle of wine, we were given complimentary fish crackers with homemade thai chilli paste, which our waiter said was the typical snack Thais ate while they sat and drank.

Our entire experience was just great, and we'll be sure to be back.

“Beautiful restaurant with amazing athmosphere with live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

I was there with my girlfriend and we had pizza since we caught a deal on groupon.
Pizza was amazing.
There was live music who was incredible good and we enjoyed every second of it.
However upon arrival they gave us really good attention which was nice but without even asking us if we wanted any at all they kept on filling up our glasses with water so we
Thought it was free but when we were about to leave they charged us quite much for it.
I think it is bad behavior to keep on giving something in a way that looks for free an then charge for it. At lease on should be asked if wanting water or not.. Anyway staff was really nice and the place really beautiful as well. I recommend it to anyone who wants a good food experience.
