Review

Setting

For the sophisticated culinary creations of Dutch chef de cuisine Joost Bijster and excellent service enjoyed in the tranquil surroundings of a well-appointed restaurant that offers fantastic views of Lumphini Park and the cityscape beyond.

Rating : 18/20

Food

Chef Bijster serves special four-, six- and eight-course set menus but when ordering a la carte start with the signature east meets west, a delightful fusion of piquant lobster bisque flavoured with lemongrass and kaffir lime poured over chunks of pan-fried lobster and mushrooms. Another fine starter is Hokkaido scallop with pumpkin, brioche and beurre noisette. A light beginning, it contrasts with the richness of a dish of foie gras cooked three ways as a mousse, a pate and pan-fried. From the vegetarian offerings, mushroom risotto is wonderfully rich and creamy. The pungent flavours and aromas of the assorted fungi are deeply satisfying. Those with a big appetite will enjoy the signature wagyu striploin served with gnocchi, carrots, leeks and a velvet truffle sauce. To finish a decadent meal bursting with flavours, try the equally decedent earl grey chocolate mousse with salted caramel sauce and crunchy hazelnuts.

Rating : 36/40

Wine

The wine list is as sophisticated as the menu with a wide selection of good quality labels from all corners of the world. Also enjoy pre- or post-dinner cocktails on the breezy terrace.
