This place is very popular amongst the locals. The restaurant's menus are thus presented and cooked to suit local palates. If you're a true-blue Thai, you will find the food rather bland, quite sweet-ish at times, and might not be used to some of the ingredients that seem out-of-place in certain menus. However, that being said, I loved how their food was presented on the plates, and also how they innovate Thai classics.
Overall grade: 2.5/5.0
- Some wines are available in "tasting sizes" (in small aperitif glasses). So if you are dining alone and want to taste several different ones, you will not burn a hole through your wallet here.
- Traditional Thai furnitures and fabrics decorate the dining area and give an ambience that you're eating a quick dinner in the old town of Krung Thep (that's "Bangkok" for all non-Thai speakers) if you factor out the winter chill.
