A serene and relaxing spot, this is as far away as you’ll get from the frenetic buzz of Bangkok, yet the food is as authentic as you’d find right there in the Thai capital. The vibrant fresh ingredients come alive in each dish, from the fieriness of the bird’s eye chillies to the zesty lemongrass and subtly sweet coconut milk. The signature balance of Thai cuisine’s sweet, salty, sour and spicy is achieved to perfection without being overpowering for delicate palates. With a female head chef in the kitchen, the subtlety of the feminine touch is evident on every plate.
