Now I have visited this place a couple of times since it is in walking distance from our apartment and indeed reviewed it about a year ago.
The place is much as I had found it before. Very clean, indoor and outdoor seating and always very quiet at lunch times. Does it pick up in the evening? I do not know as I have never been an evening customer. This visit, on a Saturday at 1pm revealed us as the only two customers. Around 2pm another couple did appear. This establishment is on 2nd Road but well away from areas that tourists might stroll.
The menus is very geared towards European and American dining. Plenty of choice and indeed plenty of American pancakes/waffles with extremely tasty trimmings. Then there are steaks and other tempting dishes. The menu card also has pictures for the less imaginative customer to help their decision making. The couple of Thai male waiting staff were very attentive and pleasant.
So plenty to choose from and middle ranging in price. However we now come to the wine. We chose a 1/2 litre of white house wine (475 bhts). When it arrived I became suspicious of it's colour - not a clear and very light yellow in colour but more of straw colouring. I accepted it, smelt it and then drank. It was clearly turning. We continued to 'stomach it' and then changed to a house red.
A white wine being 'off' is something I have experienced more than once here in Thailand. When ordering a bottle of white wine you must first note the colour and equally important note the year on the bottle. Any white wine more than two years old here in Thailand is to be avoided. It just does not keep/store well in this heat. Some fine red wines together with fine cheeses can indeed improve with age - not these white wines. Of course ordering a carafe of house wine gives you no control on what maybe being served. Most restaurants fill their carafe's from large 5 litre boxes of Mont Clair or similar (sold in most supermarkets at around 1,000 Bhts). The thing here is that if a restaurant does not have a rapid turn-over then just how long that large wine box has been opened, exposed to the naturally elements, is anyone' guess.
So if you are in the area, do visit this place as the food is good. And as for the wine - well remember the points I have made above are applicable to most establishments.
