9 of us for dinner. We were told that, coincidentally, the lift just broke down that day. The aged tell-tale hand-written note told a different tale. The first section of the climb had no handrail. But worst, the second section had handrails .... that wobbled when one held on to it. And, as you can see from pic attached, the... More

Went on friend's recommendation. It's a smallish restaurant. Seems popular as we went at 6pm and crowd is already coming in. Had a small bowl of fins to share which is alright. Ordered few other dishes and they were OK too. The suckling pig was a disappointment. It was more like a small pig. It was too big and tough... More

When you walk into the restaurant you will notice the open kitchen (block off by a glass panel) and there you will see the slow and industrious effort of the chefs laboring over numerous pots of broth under the boss supervision and involvement in preparing your order. The price may not be cheap relative to Bangkok standard but you know... More

Portion of shark fins is pitifully small and not as described on the menu. I would skip the shark fin the next time. The fish maw soup is deliciously good and tasty. Suckling pig is good value too.

I had the shark fin soup and it turned out to be half the size as advertised. It's very flavorful but the portion is pitifully small.

Food here is expensive but good. For shark fin, beware of the different grades that you're paying as the cooers)k take tourist for suckers giving you small fin mixed with bigger fins for the most expensive grade (3 tiers). For the price I'm paying,I can eat locally and getting better grade shark fin. Don/t missed the goose/duck web legs mee... More

The sharksfin that I came specially for was a total let down. We ordered the large fin varietal (and the more expensive of the 3 sizes) after they showed us how it is going to be served. I had to really swish my chopsticks and spoon in the claypot to try hunt for some strands (yes strands and not comb... More

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
