“OK food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This was my 4th time at this place. I find it an OK restaurant. Food-wise, nothing really special but the atmosphere was great. We ordered Smoke Salmon with Toast and Caesar Salad for appetizer, they were average. We had Grill Salmon Steak and La Ferme chicken (half) for the main course, they were good. I love the chicken although it was a little bit too dry.

The good thing about this restaurant is that it has a big bakery shop next to it (La Baguette). At the end of the meal, we ordered a cake and a Blackcurrent panna cotta from La Baguette, they were good. I tried the crepe once, wasn't really impressed. We ordered Earl Grey tea (loose tea) and Chamomile (loose tea) for our drink.

The price is ~18xx THB. This place does not charge for service charge. Overall, not too good but not bad. I would go back again although not so soon.

“Beautiful decor, but that's about it...”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Since the place looks absolutely stunning, I had a look on their menu when they first opened. I immediately struck me as very random, some Thai dishes, some steaks, some crepe, pretty much all over the place. I wouldn't personally have gone but my husband wanted to try it out, so we eventually went.
If a place is designed in such an outstanding way, I expect exceptional service and incredible food. Service is uninterested at most, and food is bland and not well made either.
Because there wasn't anything on the menu I was remotely interested in, I went for the honey roast chicken with Bearnaise sauce, which was soggy and dry at the same time, not remotely tasting of roast nor honey, nor anything really...My husband went for a salad with Australian sirloin steak, the salad was drowning in oil, no seasoning, steak was good though, he said, but also unseasoned.
While we were eating, the waitress came to take the sauces, bread and butter away, that we were still intending to eat...We could have said something, but were taken by surprise, so that's alright.
The bill came to 1100 THB, which was far too high for the quality offered.
I won't be going there again until hopefully they will sort their menu out, get their staff properly trained, and employ a chef that knows cooking.

“Disgusting food and horrendous service”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Quite a large restaurant fashionably chiq. However there is a large striped sofa at one end of the room, eye-catching it maybe but comfortable it ain't.

The initial contact of the waiter was not good, we were three people and every dish that we chose was not available, sad as it was difficult to choose a dish at all off the whacky menu, anyway we finally found something that we could order and they had! The chicken which is allegedly the house specialty was horrible and I left most of it, it was watery but when eating seemed rather dry and had a peculiar flavour. Others had a chicken pastry dish which you could play hunt the chicken with, it was 95% vegetable! Having been underwhelmed with the mains we decided to be adventurous and try dessert, another disaster, peach melba that bore no resemblance to a peach melba, another dessert served without the hot chocolate sauce and another; a crepe soggy and cold.

We certainly won't be going back and that's for sure.

“Most outstanding meal”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The restaurant style is very avant-garde with items such as the world’s largest striped sofa along one wall, chandeliers made from cut-down whisky bottles and some very regal chairs dotted around. One diner even described the décor as being Alice in Wonderland! Be that as it may, the main area has much wood and black and white checkered tile floors reminiscent of Pieter de Hooch paintings and the service staffs is in uniforms of decidedly European influence. There is also a second area adjacent to the pavement, but behind glassed panels and featuring natural wood flooring and two large trees growing through the roof. We were welcomed by the manager who explained the concept of La Ferme as being a restaurant, bistro, café and snackerie with a French flair. As opposed to most Euro style restaurants which offer only a few Thai favorites to please the Thai dining partners, La Ferme acknowledges that a large percentage of its customers are Thai so around 50 percent of the menu is presented with the Thai palate in mind. Yes this is not a French Restaurant as some pointers might
think! However, adding to the European flavor, the Chef Kenneth Goessens is Belgian and the Belgian style mussels, available weekends only, are his. There is also great debate as to the origin of French
fries, as the Belgians claim, rightly so in my opinion that the fries were invented in Belgium. Adding to the Belgian influence is the availability of Belgian beers, of which Kwak is my personal favorite, but at 8.4 percent alcohol has to be treated with extreme respect. The menu features uncomplicated food. Euro appetizers are in the range of B.190-330, whilst Asian appetizers are in the B.150-210 range. Salads are B. 290-330, pastas B.280, beef around B.500 and the most
expensive dish on the menu is lamb racks at B.890. And if you want the Rolls-Royce of hamburgers, they offer a Wagyu beef and cheese burger! The wines are all within a sensible price range, in the B.1,000-1,650 range and come from France, Australia, Italy, NZ and the Argentine. We chose the Little Yering Cabernet Shiraz and it was very pleasant drinking at B.1,150.
I began with a Khao soi, the Burmese curry based on Bamee egg noodles and coconut milk and chicken, garnished with a tangle of fried noodles, shallots, coriander, pickled mustard greens, fried chillis,
and a squeeze of lime juice. The item comes on a wood platter and the central dish has holes on one side to poke the chopsticks through and the accompaniments alongside, so the chopsticks do not roll off. This
is Thai hot (be warned), but superb. Madame went for the French onion soup and declared it the best ever! That is saying something. For mains, I followed up the Khao soi, almost a meal in itself, with cream
and garlic mussels, plump and moist and delicious. Madame had selected the half chicken,organic, which was also served on a wood platter with some French fries. A huge serving but again Madame was spurred to
declare the chicken the best ever as well. We indulged afterwards with desserts, who can resist strawberries? and an Irish coffee. It had been a very memorable evening. We were totally impressed with the
restaurant. A fabulous venue, daring décor, excellent fare and not over the top in price. We’ll be back.
