“You must eat here”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We came to Eat Me with friends who lived in Bangkok for 7 years and ranked this restaurant at the top of their list.

The menu is eclectic, yet we didn't have a dish we didn't absolutely love.

The prices are really reasonable for foreigners (on the expensive side for locals).

I had the heirloom tomato salad with olive oil ice cream. It was absolutely amazing.

Make sure you save room for dessert! The sticky date pudding was AMAZING. I wanted to order a second. We also had the flourless chocolate cake, which was incredibly light in texture, and the pavlova.

Cocktails aren't bad here, and they pour you a special Snicker's shot at the end of your meal!

“disappointing and very expensive”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The restaurant is located in a pleasant house and has a nice modern design. You can choose to have dinner either on the terrace or in the dining room.
We come to Bangkok every 2 to 3 years and have had dinner at Eat Me at each of our visits. We were really disappointed during our latest visit in February 2013. The menu is promising with exciting descriptions - but what you get is rather heavy, flavours are not really blended.
Prices are incredibly expensive for Bangkok - indeed not very different from our home city Paris. We selected one of the cheapest wines on the wine list because we could not afford the other ones and we could not finish the bottle because of its very coarse and dull taste.
Service is rather professional - even if it is a little irritating to have a waiter proposing to add pepper from his huge pepper pot on all your courses (why the hell don't they do it in the kitchen if they think it is required, or why don't they provide pepper on the table to avoid disturbing the guests ?).
Much to our regret, we cannot really recommend this restaurant - and Bangkok provides today many other more recommendable options with more value for your money.

“Where else would you go?”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

A TOP PICK: Trendy attracting date nights and wanna be cool business dinners, patrons are all nicely dressed. Excellent service from bevy of staff. Located near Patpong, short walk from subways (2 stations nearby). It's not that big and popular with locals and ex-pats - you need a reservation or risk disappointment.

Ground floor is a chic bar, please stop, definitely order one of the special cocktails - bartender does an amazing job with local fresh ingredients. Restaurant is 2nd floor with in/out seating (open courtyard).

The menu is a head twister. It's fusion or simply an eclectic mix of "stuff". The one miss was the homemade ravioli with blue cheese and fig sauce. Sadly, the ravioli (while handmade) didn't have enough filling and came off more as a carb fest. The grilled chicken thai style was excellent and more than enough for 2 to share. Probably not a bad dish on the menu.

The wine list isn't extensive (3 red/3 white). Thailand has uber taxes on wine. The owner smartly has all the local wine distributors in a huff, he buys close out deals and buys in bulk. The good news - a price of decent bottle of wine won't break your bank.

The total bill considering this is likely my #1 'go to' in Bangkok is a relative bargain.

All in all - this is the place to be, be seen and enjoy a nice evening. Not touristy and hopefully if YOU go, try not to junk up the place BE LOCAL.

“A bit overpriced”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Had been wanting to visit the restaurant and valentines day was a good occasion. Everything was looking great since I walked in. Warm greetings from the waiters. a little impressed with the quality of service for the fact that staffs were very attention. Great food presentation. Unfortunately there's nothing special for the food. I started with the prawn and scallop ceviche with pomegranate for the taste was too light and a bit bland. Had salmon steak for main course. its just ok.
3 stars for the food. but definitely 5 stars giving to the ambient and service.
Probably go back and try different dishes.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This was our second time in the past year we ate at this restaurant. We booked a table and were advised we would sit outside, which was fine. When we ordered our meal our waiter seemed more interested in what was happening around him rather than focusing on our order. When our entrees arrived, they were wrong, then had toI wait until my wife's meal arrived, which took its time. The main meal was also incorrectly ordered, but nobody seemed to care. We ordered ice cream for dessert and it was served in a warm bowl, so when it arrived at our table it had already melted. Because we sat outside people came out to smoke, right next to our table. We informed the waiter that we were not happy with this as we were still eating and he told us that "outside was the smoking area". We were not advised of this when booking. He asked them to move away from us, but, in my opinion, it would be better if smokers were asked to go downstairs away from the diners, as the area is very small.
