WHY GO? Located in this truly stunning, Bill Bensley-designed boutique hotel on the Chao Phraya River, one may enjoy refined Thai home cooking either outdoors on a charming terrace or within a characterful, stylishly furnished dining room.
WHAT TO ORDER? Begin with the house signature of refreshing sah tuna, northern spicy akami tuna salad with shallots, chilli and lime. Alternatively a traditional som tum of prawns, squid and mussels in a slightly sour green papaya salad is a good start. Follow with a choice of the traditional tom kha gai, creamy coconut milk soup with tender chicken, or for seafood lovers a perfectly balanced tom yum goong with tender river prawns. Spoilt for choice in terms of main course, highly recommended is massaman beef curry. It is authentically rich with slow-cooked Australian beef in a peanut curry sauce accompanied by pan-seared roti to mop up all the creamy goodness. Desserts are well worth leaving room for with a range of elegantly presented classics including banana in coconut milk and dumplings in a multi-textural palm syrup.
Drinks An intelligent wine list offers helpful annotated recommendations by taste and grape varietal. An eclectic selection is also available by the glass, the choice dotted with several impressive labels.
