Expensive (over 2,500 B)

This restaurant, located on Sukhumvit Road, has won the Bangkok Dining and Entertainment Award in the “Best Thai Restaurant” category for eight years in a row , which also affects its popularity. Reservations are therefore essential. The converted villa has a typical Thai decor, a largely wooden interior with antiques and works of art, which conveys a calm atmosphere. The beautiful arrangement of the food is just as stylish as the decor. Individual dishes are also available for two people.
