Reviewed July 17, 2014

An experience not to be missed. Menu has now been extended to 15 courses with free flowing wine, beer and sparkling. Great value for3600 baht per person. The 180 degree view of the chayo river, exquisite thai fusion food, charming hosts and interesting other guests from around the world made for a memorable night. Book early to avoid disappointment! We will be back!

“Good but not Great”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

The overall experience and idea of this private dining was rather charming. You begin by meeting your host and other dining companions at a given location. After that you take a short walk through a fun/authentic neighborhood which leads to their apartment. The chef and her team are very gracious and hospitable, really made us feel comfortable. The food is good, but definitely not great. I say this based on the pricing of the experience. I feel like there are a ton of restaurants in this city that offer much better food for this price. I'm kind of surprised by all of the 5 star reviews. Also, it was fun sitting on the floor for an authentic meal, but it was rather uncomfortable and sticky in their apartment. They do not have air conditioning. Overall the experience gets a 4, and the food gets a 3. I'd call it a 3.5. Our host and chef were really nice.

Dear highly valued guest!

thank you very much for your recent visit and detailed review about your dinner at Nang Gin Kui !

it is truly a pity to learn that the overall experience did not live up to your expectation especially since several friends of yours highly recommended it to you.

we took your review very serious and hence would like to share following adjustments:

- as for the food you mentioned in your attached image that the seafood platter was somewhat cold and lacked flavour.

we realised that many guests have been overwhelmed by the presentation thus taking pictures which led to the fact that the squid cooled down before even served (you took a picture as well ; ). further we were serving a very tasty seafood sauce on the table in order to give a flavour to the seafood which was often not recognised therefore not eaten by our guests.

our improvement: we changed the seafood platter serving the seafood in separate dishes including the sauce, hence the food arrives warm/hot and the tasty sauce is attached to the food.

- Aircon: its a fact that food tastes better in a warm environment and i would feel awkward to serve dinner with closed windows not enjoying the breeze from the river.

our improvement: ever since studying your review we are offering hand fans to our guests, which is very well received.

We are sure you would truly enjoy your next visit at Nang Gin Kui and hope that you and your wife had a great honeymoon in Thailand !

thank you very much in helping us to improve our service!

yours sincere team @ Nang Gin Kui

“It´s just amazin”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I have been at Nang Gin Kui for the second time now and i just can say that it is an unique, amazing dining experience. Don't expect a restaurant...this is different. The atmosphere, the location, the view and the food combined with the personality and attitude of Florian and his crew make this lifetime experience happen....if you are open minded and willing to experience something different .... this place is a must.
Thanks Florian for another great night!

“Night to remember :)”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

we started the night by meeting florian and the other guests at royal orchid hotel, it was a meet and greet dinner me and my girlfriend and two other couples. so it was us 2 from norway and 4 from the US. the Food was great, lots of fun things to eat which tasted really good. but the athmosphere we made during the night was excellent probably the best dining experience of our life. we came in as strangers went out in the end as good friends. it was the perfect match of people, and of course Florian really set the mood, he is a really good host. please Keep this at number one in TA:)

Stunning View as well, bring your camera it is a night to remember!! :)

“Rightly number one!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Best Thai food ever. No doubt about that.

We ate here on one of the romantic evenings, just the two of us, on our honeymoon. There were quite a few staff in the kitchen including the main chef Goy and Florian was the perfect host.

The view from the window is wonderful, watching the boats going up and down. You eat the first few courses looking out of the window, tasting great and unique food. There are lots of courses, something for everyone to like, explore and devour!

The food is excellent. Many different courses with just about every ingredient you can think of matched together perfectly ranging from salads to tofu to curry.
Wine flows as much as you want to drink and the attention to service is spot on perfect.
I even got a gift of flowers.

This really is 3*Michelin style food, at a fraction of the price and is a must do in Bangkok.
Thanks Florian and Goy.
