“Great food, soi under construction....”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had a nice dinner there, the food was delicious. The service was very good. It is nestled in Sukhumvit Soi 11, so you have to walk to the actual restaurant. There is seating both indoors and outdoors, but outside there is currently construction at the adjacent shop. It gets hotter in the evening after the sun sets (don't ask how, but it does), but if you can take the heat you will get to people watch some pedestrians and the lady boy next door (Hey, your in Thailand, what do you expect?). The chef/owner will often walk around to ensure the dinner and service, so kudos to him.

They have some wonderful goat cheese appetizers. I thought my entree (Duck Confit) was a bit too salty, but I am a little picky. My husband ordered the Duck Pie (or something like that), which was a duck version of shepherd's pie. He only planned on eating half, but never managed to stop. Dessert was to die for, fabulous. We each got the tasting trio, which had some chocolate truffles (they tasted like pure cocoa powder, too rich for me but my hubby loved it), some egg whites floating on some sweetened cheese (I think, this was my favorite), a tiny creme brûlée, and an expresso. Perfection in dessert....

“Amazing Food, Great Prices”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Actually just finishing our meals now. Hearty portions so we have a nice take home plate. House wine was fantastic and event that got the table was scrumptious. Of all the dishes we tried the fois gras was extrordinary made with a per wine reduction and mango jelly. This will be a new must go for us when we visit BKK

“Wonderful dinner”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Lovely atmosphere on a quiet back street in Bangkok. The food was delicious, the perfect portion size, and affordable. I realize French restaurants are bountiful in this city, but this is one I'm happy I tried. Such a lovely (and delicious) experience!
