“No.1 Restaurant in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

I make it a ritual of going to this restaurant every time I am in Bangkok. It is superb in every way. The food is wonderful and the ambience and service first class. Try to book a table overlooking the river for a magnificent view as well. Also if you can they have a wonderful lunch special weekdays. Still anytime you are in for a memorable occasion.

“Great for a special occasion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I celebrated my wife's birthday at the Normandy on the 28th of February evening in "tête a tête" and it was a winner. The service and ambiance was at the level of a 3 star Michelin restaurant.
I recommend you in particular the duck a l'orange from Challan , and the plateau de fromage which in a town like Bangkok is very special for it's diversity and freshness. The view on the river completes the pleasure of the table.

“Birthday dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We was staying at the MO and chose Le Normandie for my husbands 50th birthday...
The service, food, drinks were all beyond excellent.
The view was stunning, the birthday bought to my husband at the end of the meal was a lovely touch.
Although the service was excellent the servers were not at all stuffy, they gauged us well and had appropriate conversations.
Well done all round.
The cheese board and the soufflé dessert were to die for!

“over the top in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

We were not sure we wanted French food on our visit to Thailand, but after reading reviews and seeing pics of the room on the Mandarin web site, we decided to end our visit to Bangkok with a visit to LeNormandie. It was close to us (right across the river from the Peninsula), and we had an early flight the next morning, so a perfect choice.
From the moment we set foot in the restaurant, the staff was attentive to every request and detail. The room is beautiful and while not small, the only tables are window-side featuring staggering views. The food and wine was among the best we've ever had. The service was second to none. Upon leaving, everyone escorted us to the elevator...all the servers who had helped us...all 7-8 of them. They joked with us and seemed to sincerely enjoy what they do.
It's a splurge, but a splurge well worth it.
