The glass-fronted dining space is bright and airy, with flashes of garish orange perspex—a nod to the chef’s Dutch heritage—while service is upbeat and helpful.
After closing his one-Michelin-star restaurant at The Hague, Holland’s seat of government, Dutch chef Henk Savelberg has moved his eponymous brand to Bangkok. Each of Savelberg’s last four restaurant ventures was awarded a Michelin star but now, he says, all his efforts are on Bangkok.
MUST TRY: Grilled North Sea Turbot fillet with seasonal vegetables and lemon.
The interior d้cor features stone flooring, cool white and grey colours for the walls, and strong highlights of tangerine orange to add a warm glow to the ambience. Crisp linen tablecloths and fine glassware decorate the tables, as in a European fine dining restaurant, but the atmosphere is cheerfully informal.
Professional, spontanous and expertised service by both foreign and local staff.
Very extended wine selection, most are handpicked discerning French wines to deliver a wonderful, palate-pleasing gastronomic event.
Chef Savelberg has brought his Michelin-star style directly to Bangkok, with a modern fine dining menu and most of the produce imported by himself. This is especially so with the fish and shellfish, most of which is from the North Sea and is directly imported from the Netherlands. Other produce is locally sourced, some of the fruit and vegetables coming from the Royal Projects.
Modern, immaculately styled and with strong French influences.
Plenty of residents from the adjoining luxury condominium, as well as Ratchadamri’s default crowd of important-looking business people, both foreign and Thai.
