“WORST RESTAURANT IN BANGKOK!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Please do not be deceived by the the poster outside the restaurant which states that it is the BEST restaurants in bangkok. Most of the good reviews are written by expats and they might not be that fussy about thai food. We ordered the tom yum soup and pandan chicken which was medicore, fish cakes that were inedible. For the exorbitant prices they are charging, we expected better quality for the meal. At the end of the dinner, I feedback to the managers about the the food quality and they brushed my comments away, claiming that their food is fantastic and numerous customers have complimented. This is absolutely terrible service that should be condoned. If you want to pay a premium for ambience and have lousy quality, then please eat here. But if you want thai food of good quality, there are thousands of restaurants which are so much better. Stay away from this pretentious restaurant which is cater for expats.

“Gourment Thai food at it's best - Aroi mak mak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

If you can afford to pay a little more than your usual Thai food in Bangkok, then this is the place to go for fabulous gourment Thai food. Everything on their menu is cook to perfection and authentic, particularly their seafood dishes/appetizers - served family style! Note, that Sunday is always busy with the usual Thai family culture of eating out along with a pack line/cue of tourist. Lastly, save some room for desert since Nara's coconut ice cream with Thai sweet condiments is something that you should not miss out. A must stop for at least one night of spoiling yourselves rotten!!

“Worthy of Praise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

I had an impressive meal for very a reasonable price. Restaurant is on the ground level of a mall that connects with the Grand Hyatt Erawan. Food was prepared fresh and delivered as soon as it was plated up. No regrets here, eating there again during the remainder of my stay in Bangkok.

“Excellent Thai Food and very good prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

This place was recommended by friends who live in Bangkok as expats. The food is great and so is the ambience. Would love to go there again.

“Great thai restaurant for tourists ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

This is a great little Thai restaurant which is tourist friendly with its English pictorial menu and good service. Location is good and food quality is above average and so is the price. But you're paying for the convenient location at Chit Lom bts. Have eaten here numerous times and never disappoint.
