Popped in without a reservation on a Monday lunchtime. Restaurant was bustling with all walks of life! Great choice of food, 2/3 course lunchtime menu is great value. Food was very tasty and came promptly. Staff were all really pleasant and the building itself is stunning! Definitely recommend for something a wee bit "different"

The first thing that strikes you are the cocktail bars and the desk where you are met by a lady in traditional dress.

We had to wait a while before the table was ready despite arriving on time However the food and service after this was excellent. Not the cheapest but overall very happy.

Our friend lived in Bangkok for several years and had Thai maids for more than 30 years and it seemed that she would provide a suitable litmus test for the quality and authenticity of this city centre restaurant. She was impressed with the surroundings and the welcoming nature of the serving staff. Our lunch orders included vegetable spring rolls, prawn... More
