One of the best things about the Vie Hotel in Bangkok is the food. The breakfast buffet is especially wonderful--and I'm not usually a fan of breakfast. The yogurt is the best--I would very much like to know what kind of yogurt they serve. The bread pudding with custard is better than any I've had anywhere--and I'm a huge fan of bread pudding, so I've tried it at many places. I would LOVE this recipe.The staff is especially thoughtful and kind, this includes the restaurant staff, the housekeepers, spa staff, and at the front desk and front doors--sincerely thoughtful and kind, which means a lot when you're away from home and away from your native country (this was my first international trip). The restaurant staff was happy to prepare something off-menu for us, as we are vegetarians, didn't see tofu on the menu, and were in need of the extra protein. They were kind and enthusiastic about preparing tofu with perfect texture, not too soft, in a delicious sauce with veggies and noodles. We loved it and haven't tasted any as good anywhere since our visit there in May. We tried many other dishes while we were there, too numerous to describe, we loved them all. Though we stayed at another five-star hotel in Thailand for part of our trip, there was no comparison. Vie is the best.
Sadly, the air conditioning was difficult to regulate (room was either hot and humid, or quite cold) and we were unable to see the view due to wooden blinds that would not move. Still, we are planning to return to Thailand in the future. When we do, we'll stay at the Vie for a short while to sample the cuisine again. Hopefully. the temperature issues can be resolved. It's difficult to stay for longer than a few nights when it's not comfortable; and one gets claustrophobic when you can't see out at all for more than one or two nights, tops. Still, we're telling our friends to treat themselves to the excellent service and food at Vie Hotel. Gratefully,
