Face is truly an off the beat restaurant set in an unusual but pleasant surrounds. It is a large Bali house (set in a compound), with elements of Javanese style set right in the busy Sukhumvit area of Bangkok. The garden and the interior have a large number of tastefully placed artifacts from across South East Asia, but again the Bali and Javanese themes dominate. Because of the wooden construction and the wet Bali style garden setting (with lots of shade) it offers a soothing and welcome respite from the heat and humidity of Bangkok. The (largish) structure housing the restaurant and bar has been discerningly set and decorated, worth a visit in its own right for the ambience.
The menu consists of Thai, Indian and Japanese cuisines that may be ordered separate or in combination. We ordered a selection of Thai and Indian dishes, accompanied by ice-cold Singha beer. The food was average to above average in quality, the helping adequate, and relatively expensive by the normal Bangkok standard (nearly $ 75 a head in our case).
Bangkok is a heaven for a foodie; in that context having a meal at Face is not only about the food but should be taken as an “overall experience”, and one that should satisfy most patrons (including perhaps the more fussy ones). In short, it is worth the effort (if one can afford) to go for a few drinks or a meal at Face.
