The tasting menu offered a huge amount of food, far too much for one person. It was a good review of different dishes from across Thailand. My server did a nice job of describing the different dishes and how to approach them. I rate them as only a 'fair' value in comparison to the "chef's designed food tour", which offered as good or better dishes at a far cheaper price.

The environment of Nahm is excellent and quiet. But I do not like dishes served by Nahm for these reasons. First of all, wine doens't really fit Thai Food because there is already sour and sweet tasting in my food. While the waiter recommended me a white wine and taste awful. Secondly, I am unfamiliar with Thai Food, but there is no obvious feature that Nahm has done better than any other Thai restaurants I have tried. Actually, food of Nahm taste delicious, but not enough while it costs 3000 bahts for one person.

コース料理をお願いしました。お勧めを提供してくださるという事で楽しみにしていました。
最初の前菜のみ。
後は回転率をあげる料理ですか?
これが、タイ料理というのなら致し方ありませんがあまりにもお粗末でした。
カレー、スープ、煮込みのオンパレード。
これぞタイ料理というならお国に大変失礼かと。

観光客バカにしすぎ。二度と行きませんし。誰にも勧められません。

Nahm was very well executed. Unfortunately it left expectations flat. The food was well prepared and the flavors were there, but we left uninspired and disappointed in our meal and our experience. I am an American. I lived in NYC for almost 10 years and have dined in many of the ‘top establishments.’ This obviously is my lens on this experience.

While I understand what they are trying to accomplish, I just don’t understand why there wasn’t much variety in the dishes. Meaning, the tasting menu had zero noodle options. It walls as if the kitchen felt that if they continue to serve: crab, lobster, prawn in almost everything we had, they could justify the price.

Dinner for two with one bottle of wine ~$400 USD!! If there was an option to order a pizza on my way home, I would have.

The tasting menu took me on a heavy Thai seafood journey I didn’t want to go on. We both left our mains, two ginormous prawns in their exoskeletons eyeballs, legs and all staring back at us. If I wanted peel and eat shrimp, I would order it.

Afterwards, we chatted briefly with the GM who mentioned they have heard this feedback a few times. They are trying to better educate patrons on what they are trying to do.....

For $150 USD it was a fine meal and and an Ok experience. For $400 USD I felt ripped off and disappointed in a Michelin Star restaurant.

Nahm is not what you think. I was embarrassed that my dinner guest asked me if I had even reviewed this place or looked at the menu.

You have better options. If you must spend $400 please go to the nearby Siam Mall and purchase a sweet pair of new Golden Goose sneakers instead. You will be much happier afterwards.

We had the set menu which was terrific except the soups.

The big surprise although we ony had two glasses of wine and two gin and tonics was the extras cost more than the food!

Mineral water 700 baht a bottle!

My experience in Nahm was terrible and disappointing. I understand that my 2 1-year-old babies made noises which disturbed other customers. However, the restaurant manager just came to us and told us that some customers had complained us. He sound like he wanted us to leave and he didn’t give us any help. We have tried our best to keep the babies quiet, but they are only 1 year old and sometimes they cannot behave well. If your restaurant doesn’t welcome babies, you should have told us beforehand. Anyways, the service we received was definitely under expectations. I can’t believe it is one of the finest restaurants in Bangkok.

Very disappointing, we ordered a red duck curry which was horribly tangy. The prawns were ok, certainly not worth the price. Won’t be back.

We'd hoped that some of the Michelin star quality of the previous chef had carried over into the current chefs cooking.

Sadly not - the food was mid to mid-high and failed to have the something extra that you expect with a Michelin star.

My ratings are rather generous as we still had a great time due to the fantastic service.

The restaurant was very accommodating to our last-minute changes, and sent reminders about our reservation. The service was excellent, and staff spoke English well. The food was authentically Thai, and prepared to pretty high standards. It was a little noisy due to the crowd, but still acceptable. I particularly like that it was dark – creates a relaxed atmosphere.

For a tasting menu, the taste was far from there. Highly disappointed with the amount we paid to what we received. Appetizers were fine but the entrees and main dishes were not good at all. The broth the wagyu beef was in our soup choices was straight up vinegar. The fried catfish with whatever greens it was in was just breading with bitter leaves. Nothing special. All hype. Desert was the best because how could you mess that up? Would never recommend or come back. The draw was the Michelin star chef and to be honest I had better quality in the street food than here.

It's a boring space with bad acoustics. Some of the food was great but others not very sophisticated. Beef was supposed to be wagyu but seemed thick, stringy, plain. The greens with shrimp were delicate and surprising. Crab was also good but not amazing. Dessert fruit option was really bad and almost like eating straight produce. Not acceptable for Thailand where the same fruit awaits you right outside for 1/10th of the price. Service was professional, but for a moderately busy restaurant of such renown we had to wait a long time to get noticed when we wanted to order.

I was expecting a little more from the #49 restaurant in the world. It was good but it didn’t wow me and that’s what I was hoping for I can’t even tell you what I ordered but I have pics somewhere I think. Ok there’s the pics I think Tom kha and i don’t remember the others name but it was good just didn’t wow me

The food was beautifully presented, innovative and delicious. The venue lovely although, as an older group, we found the lighting a little too dim in fact we had difficulty reading the menu. It was certainly an experience I would not have missed although I thought overpriced. We had the set menu, and feel the price for this was high but for what is provided, acceptable the addition of the hefty service charge puts the price out of the ‘value for money’ range. I would certainly recommend going, and having the set menu - a lovely, albeit expensive experience

Amazing food and very attentive service. We were running late due to Bangkok traffic and arrived just as lunch service was ending. They accommodated us and treated us as if we were the only ones in the restaurant. Top notch all the way!

We were celebrating my birthday with two children. We asked especially for non spicy food and our hostess recommend some items.
In the end it was sooo spicy that the children had to eat sugar and drink milk . ...it is strange that if you ask specific for non spicy food you are offered the contrary.
Very dissatisfied and not a good way to give advice to your guests.

This was my first Michelin star experience and I do not have any complaints! The food and the service was amazing! We chose the tasting menu and it was delicious. I was very full and unable to finish the last course and barely ate dessert, so my advice, pace yourself and go hungry.

They require “smart Casual” dress code, I wasn’t sure what that meant but I wore, a maxi skirt with a tucked in crop top and my husband had a polo, jeans and boat shoes. We were fine and there were other guests even more casual than us.

I highly recommend the experience.

The food at Nahm was quite different but very enjoyable. We opted for the chief's choice menu and we were not disappointed. The one thing that was difficult was that the lighting was very dim and it was difficult to see what we were eating. But, the wait staff was very attentive and it was a fun dining experience.
