The dining room is minimalist without being spare, comfortable without being complicated. The food, too, follows this successful formula: seasonal, ingredient-inspired, perfectly-executed Thai.

The bar makes fantastic custom cocktails, all of them double pours of quality liquor. It's a winning combination of food and drink complementing each other — the quality of food found at a fluorescently-lit Bangkok shop house, with the kind of drinks served at a metropolitan lounge. Highly recommended.
