During the dinner last night, we had to listen to Bruno Mars. Quite heavy up town funk music. I would sugest to play Tiesto,Armin van Buuren or Martin Garrix next time also.
You do not expect this music style to be played in such restaurant.
I realy enjoy Bruno Mars but in a different setting and we did later that night at the DJ Station (bar disco) Silom road
I found the decoration of the restaurant not cozy enough.
The small hanging led lights where disturbing my eye, I would have preferred some candle light at the table and some more dimmed atmosphere and ofcoures in combination with some relaxing lounge music. ( see lobby of Oriental residences next door to this restaurant)
(The four legs of my dinning chair were moving and soon that chair will collapse)( the chairs are not comfortable)
An area for smokers would be nice, now we had to go for a smoke on the street.
Food and service were pleasant.
We(two pax) paid around 16000 baht for and eight course dinner experience. ( this is incl 8 drinks)( wines to match every course) Riesling with our lobster, champagne to go with our oyster, a red light bourgone with our sole fish. Some of the drinks were ok some of them were not. The Riesling was good, the Sauvigon Blanc was ok and the port served with the old Dutch chees good. Some other desert wines served were not so nice.
All in all a nice experience , I am afraid that on the long run this trendy modern minimalistic( nouvelle cuisine seventeen style restaurant) will not take off in Bangkok
Hopefully I am wrong because I think with some minor changes( music and decoration wise) and the chef introducing himself to his guest(s) it then well could take off.
5 stars for the food experience BRAVO
5 stars for the service BRAVO
3,5 stars for the wines served
3.5 stars for decoration
1 stars for music choice and un-romantic not luxurious(simple)atmosphere ( maybe I am just an old grumbling 58 year old man)
I for sure can recommend this restaurant,hopefully my suggestion will be seen as help-full hints and not to criticize because we had a pleasant evening with good food and friendly service.
