Each plate is beautifully decorated and made with only the freshest ingredients, so expect a feast for both the palate and the eyes.

The menu is pretty extensive, so we’d recommend digging into their Pad Neua Yee Ra ($36++), where Wagyu tenderloin is stir-fried with cumin, onion, and chillies. The Pla Nung Sos ($48++) is another popular pick, where steamed toothfish is dressed with superior soya sauce or a chilli lime garlic dressing.
