Nordic
A culinary experience featuring Nordic-Thai Cuisine by Chef Rungthiwa Chummongkhon. Chef Fae, born and raised in Northern Thailand has spent the last 10 years in Denmark where she gained experience in world class restaurants like Geranium in Copenhagen and Hotel Belle Epoque in Germany. Pure locally sourced, Thai ingredients are combined with Nordic cooking techniques like fermenting, curing, preserving and smoking to create original visual and contextual flavors that are innovative yet familiar. Explored through a tasting menu or by a la cart, rounded up by creative cocktails and matching wines. A unique setting to entertain and discover.

Front Room - I already want to go again! Gorgeous, really tasty, inventive food. I had the tasting menu, and it was simply divine. Thai flavours with Nordic techniques, as advertised - but also some Nordic flavours. And really beautiful presentations. Head chef Jae came to explain several of the courses, and the rest of the staff are friendly and attentive. The dishes are so creative, you really should make a reservation.

This meal is solidly within the top three meals of my life. It might even be number one. My wife and I dined here on the last evening of a multi-week trip to Southeast Asia. There could not have been a more perfect way to end this adventure.

An adventure is exactly what this meal is. Chef Fae delivers creative, thoughtful, imaginative and inspiring plates that will make you sit back and savor the moments before you put fork to plate.

Go. Make this reservation.

An amazing experience with really High-level gourmet Food and World class service.
The thai ingrediens are made to delicious good looking courses made with a lot of technicality from the Nordic cuisine. Really nice.
We have the juice pairing to the menu. All the juices were comparing the dishes very well and made the total experience completely.

I had 7 course dinner. The presentation of every food was very beautiful and fun. As for taste of the food, we can feel the taste of Thai food faintly. It was fantastic experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed the warm service and scrumptious food. Truly appreciated the staff for their great hospitality. Love the sofa seats! It made the dinner so much cozier. Thank you for a memorable evening :)

The appetizers are very creative, especially when the chef combines the spice of traditional Thai food with modern food. Beef tartare and tooth fish are my favorite dishes.

Interesting combination of local ingredients with modern cooking techniques. I feel some dishes are a bit overcomplicated though.

Me and my best friend are our new years dinner here. Due to some miscommunication we never got the info that it would be a set menu for new years with beef or lobster as a main. We both have a vegetarian diet, so they fixed a completely vegetarian 10 course meal for us. Just like that! Super nice and friendly staff and the food was AMAZING. We really enjoyed our choice of restaurant.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

An excellent evening all round. We had the 10 course tasting menu with wine pairing and enjoyed every mouthful. The food was beautifully presented, well executed and the flavour combinations were superb. The wine selection that went with the with menu was excellent and paired perfectly. Service was excellent and atmosphere good too, although such a shame that the restaurant was so empty given the excellent food. Although rather expensive for Bangkok, I still highly recommend visiting and I will definitely be back.
