C'est Bon Restaurant Bangkok

Smooth flavours which may taste bland to some who favour sharper, bolder recipes, this is the place for nice, unchallenging meals. Caesar salad is adequate and very mild, with its romaine lettuce, anchovies, egg, parmesan cheese and croutons free of the pointy piquancy offered in other restaurants. Smoked salmon is fine and is sliced thin so it easily drapes rocket salad and capers, surrounded by squirts of a lemon-dillmustard dressing. Foie gras is prepared as two pan-fried goose liver pieces on a slice of warm pear in raspberry sauce, along with a corn fritter.

Rack of lamb is thick but its roasted Australian chops lack flavour and are not exceptional, despite its bed of ratatouille and rosemary sauce. Grilled tuna steak is more successful and presents two slices on grated beetroot, with welcome dabs of garlic cream sauce. For dessert try creme brulee, a really good custard topped with kiwi and tangerine.

Cosy, romantic and sophisticated. Framed black-and-white photographs adorn the walls of this graceful, well-appointed restaurant which dangles silky gauze between some tables to seclude diners in semi-cocoons amid little pillows, indirect lighting and other flourishes.
