“Excellent food, service and atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We had 2 meals at Face during our 10 day stay in Bangkok. The food was simply devine, we ate from the Indian and Thai menus. Coconut rice and Pawns were a favourite. The staff were very helpful and gracious. The first night we went, we had not booked a table and the main restaurant was fully booked , so we were given a table in an area used for private parties, it was lovely. We subsequently did book a table for later in the week. The restaurant is a traditional thai wooden building and has a lovely calm atmosphere, quite the opposite from the streets outside. We were looked after very well on both visits. The food was delicious. Highly recommended. Thank you.

“Great Japanese food”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Made a booking for Misaki @ Face but on arrival was told that they were serving the Japanese food in the Thai restaurant....this was a little disappointing as i had previously dined in the thai restaurant and was looking forward to a new experience....anyway the food and the service did not disappoint and made for an enjoyable evening

“Beautiful location. Expensive food”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

The Face is on a small, quite street of a bustle area. The place is in a traditional, wooden building. Walking in the restaurant is like stepping in another world. You just escape the busy Bangkok and step into a relaxing place.

Thai and Japanese foods are available there. Thai food is decent and carefully prepared. Price is expensive to Bangkok standard. Overall, this is not a bad choice.

“Must see and eat in Bangkok”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We loved everything. Starting from the very nice setting to the service to the food. Yes, it might maybe look a bit like a 'tourist place', still, I haven't seen many other restaurants which offered a similar 'experience'.
Make sure that you check the way to get there before you start your trip. It's quite hidden in Bangkok and not all taxi drivers know it and it can therefore be quite annoying until you are there.

“Very conventional food, even higher prices”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This restaurant is set in a beautiful old thai wooden house. Yes, it's a nice place for a romantic dinner with candlelights.

But the first disappointment comes with the menu of the thai restaurant: only the most classic, standard thai fare is available, the kind of stuff you can basically eat anywhere, be it in Thailand at tourist spots ore abroad: all the red and green curries, cashew chicken, papaya, green mango and pomelo salad, tom yam soup and so on.

The food is tasty and well executed. But there is absolutely nothing exceptional about it apart from the price. At 4000 Baht for two people with two glasses of wine and two cocktails, this is by far the most expensive restaurant I have eaten at in Thailand. I am ready to pay expensive prices for exceptional food, which should have some form of orginiality and refinement. But this is very standard, run of the mill thai food you can find anywhere. It will cost a third in the more expensive normal thai restaurants, 1/6 of the price in the hole in the wall places, and 1/10 of the price at sidewalk food stalls that fire up their own Wok. And you will find more variety there more taste and spice !

Very, very overrated place, avoid.
