Visited Central world branch for dinner. Everything is good! The fried chicken wings are really nice! Spent about 700+ baht for four adults with drinks. Reasonable price and would recommend it to everyone.

Most of the items were nicely executed. The fried fish is really good and not forgetting that som tom. Som tom has a robust flavor; every bite is an enjoyment. Rice was very fragrant.
