Kinnaree Gourmet Thai Restaurant & Bar, Bangkok…Gourmet? Fine dining? Humbug!

Their website says, “Kinnaree Gourmet Thai Restaurant and Bar is a fine dining experience of Modern Thai Cuisine”. I say, “Humbug!”

This is about the only “fine dining” restaurant that has no cutleries for some diners on the table. Someone must have forgotten to tell the chef that tom yum is a soup best served really hot! (not lukewarm). I think this restaurant is still learning customer service, but this does not make them a bad restaurant. You get a certain level of (lack of) attentiveness, though I have to admit that they were all very friendly and polite.

Most frustrating of all, was the agonizingly long wait times for our food to arrive. Time seems to pass at an excruciatingly slow pace when you’re hungry and waiting for your dinner.

Ambience is great though and food is nice but now “wow” nice. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
