Just expensive and overrated. It shouldn't be under "Thai Restaurants", perhaps under experimental or molecular. For authentic Thai food go somewhere else. Not a place for foodies or connaisseurs.
You have to try The Journey. Chef's curated tasting menu. Note that it takes from 3 to 4 hours. Amazing experience. Molecular Gastronomy at its best. The most beautiful and creative plating I've seen
Worth the money. Food blew my mind (and belly!). Only disappointment was the Postcard from Japan. Everything else was highly enjoyable.
Kids are not allowed there but if you are confident that your kids are not noisy then try to book the restaurant
Delightful from start to finish - and love that they have a vegetarian tasting menu!
Luxury dinning in BangkokThis is my second visit to Sta Bua, the first being for lunch during my hotel stay in Kempinski.We came early as we were really exhausted from walking about in the hot weather. The staff immediately showed us to a beautifully set booth-style seats with a lot of privacy, facing the indoor lotus ponds. We tried the 7 and 11 course set dinner, which were both flavorful, yummy and intellectually stimulating. We had a personalButler attending to us who prepared and explain each of the course in great details. ( necessary as otherwise we would miss the subtle flavor in some fusion dish) Dishes we really recommend : Frozen lobster curry Foie gras with coconut milk And of course the light yet sweet deserts a trois- worth every penny!
Food that excites! Another level of Thai Cuisine.I must admit that I had been quite skeptical about Sra Bua before I really went there. Looking at the prices also made me think twice, but come to think of it again, you actually pay about the same price for a brunch at a 5-star hotel, or more.Once arrived at the restaurant, we were led to sit at the welcome lounge. Welcome drink was served with the nibblings, which were crispy lotus roots, homemade squid and prawn crackers and soya meringue. We decided to go for the dinner set menu (THB 2,700++) and the others chose to do the wine pairing menu (THB 2,700++ incl. 7 glasses of wine) while I chose to go just for the mini wine pairing menu (THB 1,800++ incl. 4 glasses of wine). More nibblings in street food style were served, before we moved to the dining table. Then, the main appetizers were served.We started off with Tom Yum Goong and the first paired wine (Grüner Veltliner, 2012 from Austria). The soup and the meat were serv...
Thinking out of the boxTo really appreciate Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin you must let go of all you know about thaifood.Its different-its food created by thinking out of the box and you should visit with an open and interested mind to fully enjoy Sra Bua.We took the set menu and was intrigued by the way the different dishes was presented to us and it was all very tasty, well prepared and really creative.We also opted for the wine pairing menu with different wines paired with the different dishes and that was also a good choice.The menu and the wine all in all set us back around 4000 THB a head-cheap i would say when you think of the quality and craftsmanship that is behind each and every dish.If you can read Swedish here is our review: http://destinationasien.se/index.php/component/content/article?id=117:genvaegen-till-koepenhamn-gar-via-bangkok
Thai cuisine with a french twist! Try the lobster salad, the fois gras or the melt-in-mouth pork belly, the Mikkeller beers, specially brewed for asian food pairing,the banana cake/coconut dessert.
Totally worth it to try the Journey with a wine or cocktail pairing as well. Full pours and glasses. Service is superb and ambiance is exceptional. Must see in Bangkok.
