“Amazing Food, Service, Atmosphere and Cocktails!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

I visited the Water Library Thanglor and met with Mirko, the GM after I was greeted by his staff. The immediate attention to detail was delightful. I enjoyed appetizers including crab rolls, scallops and rocket salad. The Wine was delicious and then I transitioned to a Sexy Lychee Cocktail that was topped off with home made bitters which was tasty. The staff was so friendly and attentive. A trio that was playing that was fabulous: Saxaphone, Rhythm Guitar and Lead Guitar/Vocals. I applaud Mirko and his staff for an experience that you must have while visiting Bangkok. Cheers!

“The Meal to Die For”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Big applaud to Chef Johari...the meal was so excellent. When I read about the review of this set menu, I was so excited and looking forward to try it. The most expensive 10courses set menu in Bangkok, with only 10 lucky diners per night, where the chef himself plate and decor each dish in front of you, is definitely worth a try. I enjoyed every dish being served. Each dish is served in good aize portion, balance in texture, color, temperature, decoration and off course taste. The chef served the meal at the same time for the 10 diners. We had a lovely evening.

“Best Bar in Bangkok!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Stopped by for some drinks and we were very impressed! Boi and his bar staff made amazing drinks ranging from dry ice chocolate ice cream served with vodka to their private label liquor. Best drinks I've ever had in the world! The hospitality was spectacular and we didn't want to leave. This is worth a stop while you are in Bangkok! Nice private feel.
