“Don't drive, go there by taxi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I went there last week to eat with a group of friends and was surprised to find out that they have no parking space there. So I had to use their offered valet parking which I didn’t like as I had some valuables in my car. We ordered several items, and found that the menu was just regular, nothing spectacular. The service was slow, and the food items were small. And some food items (fried chicken) took more than half an hour to arrive! If you are looking for just something to eat, then this place would be fine. But don’t expect too much, and best to go there by taxi.

“Best restaurant in Bangkok for a lazy afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Sometimes in a restaurant, you see a menu where there is nothing you like. Sometimes you see a menu where you like everything on it, but they are familiar 'set piece' meals which you have seen many times before. Roast however, has very imaginative creations, and twists on standard dishes, which are delicious. The food is not hyper-complicated, but it is creative and it is tasty 'comfort food'. They also suggest wine pairings, and they have a small but quality selection of wines and artisan beers.
If I had to criticise, you could argue that the portions are a bit small.
The atmosphere is airy and relaxed, and the decor is stylish and international. This would make a perfect spot for whiling away a Sunday afternoon with your partner, and the newspapers. And if you decide you don't like it - there are a bunch of other places in the same complex which also look very promising.
Valet parking downstairs charges a small fee. (20bt)
