The place was quite small compared to other international Chinese restaurants that I've been to The food was really good (the crispy pork was excellent) but they serve only small portions which forces you to order additional servings if you are a big group.

We paid about 140 dollars for a group of 7 people (5 dishes + drinks). This is cheap based on international standards but this is Thailand and you can get a much better bargain in some restaurants.

I recommend this restaurant for small groups of about 2-3 people. For bigger groups, you'll get your money's worth if you go to a buffet restaurant instead.

I am a fan of British style crispy aromatic duck and while the pancakes here were a little wet - the result of being served on a plate and not a steam basket - the duck took me right back to London's Chinatown eateries which are famous for this dish. So a great fund for lovers of this style of duck? It should be, but there was literally no-one else in that vast Chinese restaurant ion Thong Lor. This is the centre of hip, happening Bangkok and yet for one hour at peak time on a Friday night we were alone - utterly alone. Bear in mind that the queues to get into the branch in Siam Paragon mall rival those of the crispy cream doughnut counter and this makes it inexplicable. Does no-one know this restaurant exists, do they know something we don't, do they need to market it more, did I choose a bad night? Given how good the food was, and how affordable it is, the restaurant, which is vast, should have been busy. It wasn't - and judging by the fact that there is only one other review on TA I doubt it ever is. Restaurants need good food - and atmosphere. The Four Seasons has just one of these two vital ingredients. If they can resolve this then they will have a winning formula - good British style Chinese food, at ok prices, in a happy atmosphere. Come on guys, set to it....

The Four Seasons Restaurant, Thong Lo 10, is a large space but cleverly designed to seem intimate and cosy.

The décor is typically Chinese, richly decorate golden designs bedecked the walls and a short avenue of golden pillars led the eye to the back of the restaurant. I relaxed into a comfortable chair and took a few minutes to listen to the traditional Chinese violin music.

I started the dinner with shredded chicken soup, pieces of meat floated in a thick steaming broth (Bt140). It was a perfect start to any meal.

London’s Four Seasons Restaurant is famed for its crispy duck (Bt 450) and I am a great fan of the dish. The duck’s skin was a deep glossy caramel the flesh tender and juicy. Laid before me the waiter expertly constructed the pancake rolls, smearing first with the most exquisite, sweet and fruity plum sauce. The whole is an epicurean dream, the moist flesh absorbed the mouth-watering sauce and six rolls later I was satiated but could have gone on for more.

Next I sampled the Three Combination dish (Bt350), roast pork, duck and belly pork bathed in a light sauce this was an unusual combination but the ingredients complimented each other. The belly pork was crisped to perfection and accompanied by an English mustard sauce was tangily moreish. The vegetable was an earthy Chinese broccoli, tasting as if it had been just pulled from the soil. A simple vegetable that was fresh and true to Mother Nature’s desire for authentic tastes.

Another of my favourite Chinese foods found its way to the table; prawns in Szechuan sauce, shiny pink prawns covered in the tart sauce lay temptingly before me. The fleshy prawns were large and briny-fresh the sauce bit back at my palate to remind me of its rural Chinese roots. I decanted prawns and abundant sauce to a bed of Thai jasmine rice so fluffy that each grain could have floated skywards and off to form puffs of rice clouds. The flavour was delicate and enticing to the taste buds.

I finished off this memorable meal with toffee banana and vanilla ice cream. The banana was fried in a sesame seeded caramel sphere the hot banana and vanilla ice cream was a good combination of textures and flavours.

I can recommend the Four Seasons Restaurant in Bangkok’s Thong Lo 10 for its atmosphere, service and food. Prices are reasonable too. I will certainly return.
