A gorgeously restored, two-storey old building which exudes home comforts amid a French colonial ambience.
Magnificent French and Thai tastes which go far beyond the usual snails and foie gras emphasised at other French restaurants. Mille feuilles of grilled vegetables, fresh goat cheese and pesto vinaigrette is a great way to begin, and puts lots of eggplant in a very fresh salad. Baked sea bass en papillote, with lemon butter and chopped black olives, delights with a nice, cheesy sauce decked with asparagus and other treats.
Mee krob chao wang displays a deft chef's ability to turn a traditional Thai dish into a delicious, honeyed, crunchy pile of shredded flavour. Ravioli sai pu tom yum is an excellent soup cleverly packed with complex ingredients. Snowfish nam dang, however, overwhelms the fish with a spicy chilli sauce. Dessert becomes sinfully sensational in the form of a chocolate fondant with mango coulis.
