I have been to many 1,2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants, but never one with Thai food! What an incredible experience. The food, ambience, staff and every aspect of my meal made it easily worthy of its single star and in my opinion was as good as any 3 star. Not knowing anything about the way the meal unfolds was half the fun, so I won't go into much detail, but suffice it to say it's like (I imagine, since I've not been there) getting off the bus in the middle of Bangkok and just eating your way through town, all in the best restaurants. The pace, and change of pace (again, you have to experience it yourself to understand) are designed to emulate that and it really works. I was a single diner, and the staff thoughtfully put a copy of their spectacular illustrated cookbook on my table to peruse while I awaited each course. A nice touch.
The food is indescribably good, the flavors singing in every way. I admit that I love Thai food, but this is NOT your basic American Thai restaurant-not by a long shot. No heavy overspiced sauces here. The Asian ingredients were fresh and danced on the tongue. The wine pairings (I highly recommend doing this) were impeccable even to a seasoned oenophile. The various ingenious preparations, including one with a humorous homage to the building's prior history, complemented the tastes without being too theatrical.
My two main waiters, Dan and Porsche, were incredibly professional and knowledgeable about the food and the wine. They took extra time to chat with a lonely solitary diner, for which I am grateful, and this only underscores their skills in making the meal a wonderful success. This meal ranks among the very best I have had in my entire life.
