“wonderful haven”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We sat in the outdoor bar area and had small plates, which were quite good (papaya salad with shrimp, for example). The ambiance is lovely and a haven from Bangkok's bustle. We saw next to the koi pond and enjoyed the vista of the house and grounds. The food is more in line with US prices and the wine, in particular, is overpriced. They have a 2-for-1 wine happy hour from 4.30 - to about 7.30, as I recall. That makes the wine price doable. However, they call it "1-for-1" and even though we quizzed the server at length specifically with this question, she did not make it clear that we had to order exactly the same wine (even tho' they are all priced the same) to get the offer. Her manager gave us what we were led to believe was the correct price, but buyer beware here.

“Great for lunch while visiting the house”
Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Good food and Service.
Traditional Thai. All dishes were well served. Portions are a bit small. Price range medium / high. Five people paid almost 4000 baths. 
I loved the cheese cake. One of the best I have ever eaten. Quite environment. Very good staff.

“Ok place, nothing more”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

The name of Jim Thompson is what makes it attractive... Nice place for a work lunch, but I wouldn't go further than that.

“Excellent choice for lunch”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

I had my staple dish " Gai phad med mamuang" or cashew chicken. It was excellent, maybe the best i've tasted in BKK and i've eaten that dish more than 100 times. Also tried the fresh spring rolls with shrimp which were also wonderful. I highly recommend this place as the food quality, presentation, taste, and quantity are all exceptional.
