European Dining that Won’t Break your Bank
Le Strogonoff 2 is located on the very busy Pratumnak Road. I would advise those who walk to the restaurant to really watch out for traffic, there isn’t really a pavement. Motorbike parking in front of the restaurant is abundant. I drove my sedan and park around the corner.
Take two steps from the busy road and choose from outdoor seating (overlooking the busy/noisy street) or inside in the comfort of the air-conditioned dining room. Inside find the eclectically decorated citrusy colored dining rooms. I thought the decorations were a bit worn-out/outdated, although the atmosphere reminded me of a family restaurant. Throughout my meal, I observed that at least half of the patrons were Francophone, while the rest were either locals or Anglophones: the mixed-crowd added to my feeling of a family-restaurant atmosphere.
No complaints about the service staff: timely and attentive. One of the female wait staff was very cordial when taking my order, making recommendations on popular dishes and joining in on banter.
Before ordering food, I ordered a half liter of white wine (200 THB ~ 6.5 USD): very well chilled and crisp. For the meal, I opted for the four-course menu (330THB ~ 11 USD), which included vegetable soup, appetizer, main and dessert of which you can choose the appetizer, main and dessert from a wide range of options. Some options had additional charges. For example, I ordered the lamb (additional 140 THB ~ 4.5 USD). The vegetable soup was a bit bland and too thick: salt helped it slightly. Along with the soup, a basket of very warm/hot bread arrived with a small bowl of pesto: moist and yummy! My appetizer: well-seasoned and elegantly presented duck liver salad. By the time my main dish arrived I realized I was starting to get full, so I sacrificed by not eating all of the potatoes that came with my beautifully presented delectable lamb of seven hours. For dessert: crème brûlée with strawberries was perfect. I thought the dessert was the last part of my feast, but I was wrong. The last part was the shot of kirschwasser. What a pleasant surprise!
Although the vegetable soup wasn’t as tasty as I would have liked and the atmosphere wasn’t particularly glamorous, the value for the meal is by far the strongest point. I highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and plan on dining at Le Strogonoff 2 again.
