Har, $100 US per person for food only. Oh my god.
I don't want to guess the lunch set. It won't be cheap to my standard, or to LA standard.
Thank you for not bringing me here.

har, Le Normandie is $150 US per person but u love that bor! because Le Normandie is in MO-Bkk; or because Le Vendome is not in MO-Bkk so u think not worth it!

Sea, do you remember the Jap-alarm clock? now u c!

This looks like a very fancy restaurant, and a fancy French meal. Normally lunch set is cheaper than dinner meal.

Shall be about 700 baht!

OK, I got it.... Really big eyes "see over".

The lunch is a big bargain considering the food quality, though services are yet to improve. I do agree it's a 4 star rating and may be 4.5 if services and some other details as per our notice at the meal. Thanks again for bringing to this lovely lunch.

Merry Christmas!

also, if the manager didn't wear unfitted suit, and if the food weren't transport to our table via outdoor uncovered from the kitchen, a 4 and half stars may award to Le Vendome ..

Stella said...

You are right Mickey, Le Normandie at BO-BKK is different and unique and worth it. Nobody does it better than BO-BKK.

So how much is the lunch set?

I am sure this is more expensive than Le Normandie's lunch, otherwise you would brought me here.

@Stella, I think TC asked us to guess.

I say such meal at a exquisite restaurant is expensive, even lunch. TC already shows us the lunch price is something within 3 digits. So the set lunch maybe 850 baht

Queen William said...

I have been to its dinner. Lunch set maybe at 890 baht per person!

Will be in BKK next week.

Merry Christmas!

Stella, as a MO fan, if it's close to THB1,000, we would have just swift to Le Normandie. When TC told me to try this one instead of Le Beaulieu which is even closer to the hotel I stay, he suggested try this one and I know why is that after checking on the price. :)

Fillet-O Fish said...

Wow modern French power lunch with pompano? I will try.

Price for lunch set? Maybe 650 baht!

Merry Christmas and a Crazy New Year!

Is this same Le Vendome used to take up a space in the All Season Place? Good restaurant. A class food. D class service.

Thailand Club said...

yes, it was once at All Season Place

Both THB 380++ (too low) and THB 1,180++ (more expensive than five star hotel) is not realistic. I guess it is between THB 580 to THB 980.

As a standalone restaurant, set lunch usually is very reasonable charged even dinner is expensive. This one I think set lunch is cost THB 580++. Choice B!

Zack said...

Me too I think it is 580 baht a set lunch.

Stella said...

My guess is answer C(780 Baht) although from the food it looks like 980 Baht. But if it is really 980 Baht than TC would not ask us to guess so must be cheaper than it looks.

Thailand Club said...

thank you for your blind guess, no one got it (hahaha hohoho), Happy and Prosperous New Year!

in 2011, more guess, more fun ..

Stella said...

Har, no one got it? That means we guessed too high or too low?
Let me go back to see the choices again now.

Stella said...

Oh my God, the choices are gone.
But I just noticed you put the price at the bottom instead. So do you mean $380 Baht for one person? It is only $11 US. You got to be kidding me.

Thailand Club said...

u can ask Sea :-) we ate together

not yet bring u there, Bangkok has too much bargain good meal to eat, just too little time ..

Oh kidding! Five stars lunch for only 380 baht. April Fool Day?

Stella said...

Har, really $380 Baht for this fancy lunch.
This is really April Fool Day.
In fact, in terms of the out-of-proportion food quality and its price in BKK, everyday can be April Food Day in BKK.
Really envy you guys.
No wonder BKK deserved to be the Heaven of good food and good hotels.
Salute to BKK.
